Hello To All: Thank-you for all your comments on my last two posts, I do want to tell you how sorry I am I did not send email thank-you's, it has been a very busy three months.
We have had our kitchen torn up for so long I forgot what it looked like before.
Finally last Thursday I was able to start the clean up what a mess dust makes when so many people are in and out of the house, I love my new cabinets.
I have a small kitchen and love it, in our last home the kitchen was so big you could have 20 people in there at once, I love a smaller area to work in.
Mike bought me a lot of goodies to put on top of the cabinets I wanted just a couple of fake vines in baskets but nope my sweety pie went shopping, I think her did a greart job.
I have been away from the computer do to a virus, I will never again have an external harddrive again, Best Buy found a virus hiding which caused me lots of problems, after the tower and harddrive were at Best buy for a week we decided to buy a new tower, what a difference.
I did not want to post or email much due to I did not want to infect anyone else, I am not sure where it came from, however I was told that even though it is hard to get a virus on an IPAD or iPhone I did not want to chance it.
I have been busy stitching and beading not so much beading, I had orders for the beaded crystal beads.
I did a small which I love doing one over one on 36 count, this is one of the Doodles which I love doing, the fabric called for was a little bit bigger count, I wanted to make a scissor fob so wanted it smaller, the bumble bee came in the little box I had to supply fabric and thread.
I did another project I started last fall, I finished this set when staying in a hotel for a week during the last week of construction, this was a kit I found in the stash relocation pile at Needlework Guild retreat last August, it came with a pattern and I had to cut all the pieces out and stitch together.
I love Brenda Gervais designs, as you can see this is a Pin Cushion, I have an old wooden spindle I plan on putting it on, if I ever get the time to do some finishing.
I started working on a Blackbird Design it is from a retreat I took a little under two years ago, Stitchville USA has a spring retreat every year, I have not missed on in ten years, again this year we have the pleasure of having Alma and Barb back again, this will take place in April.
It is a large piece, I am excited to do this one and have it framed, I want to repaint our master bedroom and have all Blackbird Designs on my walls.
Well its time for a little stitching, I have been kind of staying in the house this past week it was minus 31 degrees Tuesday and Wednesday, however we did make it to daily Mass on Thursday it warmed up to minus 27 degrees, this morning it was a - 7 degrees so a lot warmer but still bone chilling, tomorrow it will be warmer in the 40s that at this time of the year is a treat.
I hope you all are getting as much stitching done as your heart desires, I am off to stitch.
Thank-you for stopping by.
