I have to Vent boy am I mad

Okay I am sure I will get some comments and emails about this but what the heck is the matter with some people? Mrs. Trump made a comment about people not being with their families, we should keep them in our thoughts and prayers, I agree with her.
Some are over seas, some have jobs that keeps them away for the holidays, some are ill and in the hospital or nursing home.
Many tweets were political instead of agreeing with her, this makes me mad, one tweet was yeah the 5000 the POTUS sent to the border, I am sorry but that is what the men and women in the service do it is a   job of protecting us, its about time something is being done about the people coming into this country illegally, they are a drain on our system our welfare food stamp social security system and any other programs we have, I know of many illegal's getting social security disability, this was a program for working people which gave them money to live on after retirement not to be handed out to every person asking for it, dang it we hard working people have earned this money for us.
They should do as they did years ago do it legally, I am not prejudice but come on enough is enough.
So sorry I am sure someone will be mad at me that is your right, it is also my right to voice my opinion here on my blog.

I hope you Have a great evening.

Some More Stitching

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate this holiday:

Last evening and today I have been working on a kit that was given to my by a very sweet Lady from north Dakota, LaRue is an amazing Lady and Friend, she is loads of fun and an amazing stitcher.
This is a kit from Milady's Needle it is Milady's Quaker Pendant ll, I love doing this little design.

It is one over one on 36 count, I had to frog a little bit about 20 stitch's this is not easy on 36 one over one, as you can see from the penny how small this is, I was going to give it as a gift but became selfish when I finished one side, I just love it.

I am working on some new beading designs, I bought a bag of a dozen inexpensive metal bracelets at a craft sale, I did some experimenting yesterday I am happy with the result except I will be adding a ribbon on the top, the copper ones get a copper ribbon, silver  ribbon and gold  ribbon, along with matching beads, I will post a photo next week.
In a different light, they cost about 35 cents to make, I am going to mark them 2.00 for the Santa Workshop, so many people who come to the Luncheon are on a fixed income and would love to buy but need to watch theirs pennies, so less expensive gifts to buy are a great idea.
Well its time to stitch some more, I hope you all are having a great weekend

Wow Three Post In A Week

I have been very busy, family has kept me busy since my Father in law passed in September.
I have done some stitching and a finish.
I was at retreat in October, had a blast, I took two projects with me it was hard to have an unfinished design sitting at home but I need quiet to do the small stitching, I am almost done with the class project and hope to construct that and the Jeannette Douglas design I stitched from last springs retreat.
I brought my beads and the girls made scissor fobs at retreat, I sadly did not get a photo of them all.

Not the best photos, the sun sets so early here, we had our heating and air ducts cleaned today, I just could not find the time to take photos.

I did stitch this little ornament a while back,  way back in November 2017, somehow it was stashed away with my linen fabric, I love the bows.

This was a free kit I found in the stash relocation pile, I am thinking of giving this as a gift, it was hard to stitch at first, I took it apart and stitched then I put it back together, this is a Betsy C Stinner Design Earth Threads.

This is the inside needle holder, I love the felt it is so soft to the touch, plus I like the yellow color.

I did work on a Blackbird Design at retreat, however I finished stitching it today.

                                          Breath Of Spring, another pattern I found in Stash pile

I have been busy getting things done for the Christ Child Luncheon at St. Ignatious Catholic Church, we are on our 45th  or 46th  year of having this luncheon, it started out as a Baby Shower for babies in need.
Many and I mean many of the women at our Church make the meal and baked goods for the bake shop which I am in charge of, I have been doing this for 15 years.
This year the new CCW council granted me the right to have a Santa Workshop, I am so excited.
We had a craft day which we painted ornaments which was my station, made cookie in a jar ingredients, the State of Minnesota string art plaques (which I was not sure was going to be anygood) I cannot wait to buy one they are fantastic, another lady made sugar scrubs with essential oils,  another made hand lotion, we also had large boards with wreaths and the words Joy on them, plus some of the younger people made greeting cards.
My contribution from home is 35 beaded crystal beads, neck warmers which I will be sewing tomorrow and painted balls for the Christmas tree.

                                              I took photos this evening not good ones

I made one dozen beaded crystal balls for a fund raiser for Holy Spirit school, the dinner fund raiser is this Friday, sadly this year I cannot go.

Well its time to stitch and have a chocolate milk, my treat to myself every evening.

Just in case I am not able to post again before Thanksgiving I hope you all have a beautiful time with your Families.



Big Problems

Hello to all my Friends in blogland: first I want to say if you are getting emails about products with my name attached please know from my heart I do not send them, I have received some with other bloggers names attached, I opened one, I then knew it was a scammer.
I am writing to tell you I have been trying to comment on your blogs I can only comment maybe every tenth blog, for some reason blogger is blocking me out from commenting, I need to do a little research, so sorry I have left comments on many blogs this past two weeks, I went back to add a comment on Stitching Friends Forever and found that my comments were not there.
Please understand I am not ignoring you.
