Things Are Back To Normal ( Finally)

🐇Hello to all my faithful followers and the ones that just take a peek,  thank-you from my heart for all your lovely comments on my last post.
It has been a trying three months, Pop is with Our Lord and not in any pain.

I have been stitching, not any beading but soon I will get back to beading getting things made for the Santa Shop at Church in December.
I have been able to get back to stitching again, it feels so good, outside projects are done for the year except for getting rid of the annuals that will freeze soon, it is cold here in the forty's brrrrr, ( I need to move to warmer weather)

I stitched on my class project today, I was able to get some photos even with the cloudy sky.

I used the dime to give you an idea of how small the stitching is, I am not happy with the directions but am able to work around them.

This is the Needleholder and the back of the Tool Pocket

This is the Needlebook, I just love the flower design Jackie chose.

                                               Button Page and Needle Holder again

                                                        This is one of the panels of the box

                                          This is Krissy looking out the front door in the
                                                             entryway she is so alert

Last week on Monday, we needed a little getaway, we went to West Bend Iowa and visited the Grotto Of The Redemption, this is an amazing place,  it was pouring rain but I still climb to the top to take a photo, Mike went to the gift shop to stay dry.

I am amazed at how beautiful and peaceful this place is, I fell in love with all the beautiful statues and designs in the building, a Catholic Priest collected gens stones and rocks from around the world, he and two other men worked on this place for years, you can check it out on the net.

Just a few photos:

This is what you see as you drive up from the front
three story's high and amazing

Well its now 20:00 time to get back to stitching and watching Halloween Baking Championship.
Have a safe and great week.
