Happy New Year 2020

This is my last post for 2020, just imagine how time fly's, it is amazing when I look back to the day I started stitching and the day many years later when I started this blog.
I have been Blessed with many friends, I am a very lucky Lady, to all my dear followers thank-you for sticking with me.

I did get a great gift from my husband for Christmas, it is something I have wanted for ages, it is a Kays Creation frame stand, it can also hold Q-snap frames, I can use it on my lap or table top, I am excited to use it.

And looky there my big fat duck feet showing, if you comment about my feet be kind, giggles

I have been doing some stitching, I started a Bee Pincushion by SubRosa .

Sorry about the dark photo not sure why it came out that way.

 http://e-subrosa.blogspot.com she has some lovely designs for sale, I have done a few of her designs.

My new start last evening is  a  Blue Ribbon Design, it is My Precious Treasures, I love the colors in this design and the design.

We have had lots of snow, today is cold but with the beautiful sun shining I do not mind the snow.
Tomorrow is a Holy Day Of Obligation, I will not be able to go I have a runny nose and a bit of a sore throat, I did not get a flu shot this year, I will when I am feeling better.

Happy New Year my dear friends, I hope you are Blessed with good health, prosperty and all the happiness in the world.

Merry Christmas To All

Merry Christmas to all my dear followers, thank you for your comments on my previous post.
It has been a very busy Christmas season in our home, I have done some stitching along with alterations and gift making, baking and a nap here and there.
I feel very Blessed to be able to celebrate the Holy Season with family and friends.
I hope those of you who celebrate Christmas have a very Blessed day today.
Last Saturday I was Blessed with a beautiful package from our friend RJ from http://stitchingfriendsforever2.blogspot.com 

This is so beautiful I love it, thank you RJ it is perfect and the scissors are wonderful, this caddy can carry scissors, pins, a pattern and needles along with threads, it is filled with lavender crushed walnut shells and poly-fill , her construction is perfect.
She also sent along the sweetest pattern from  the Cricket Collection, I would show you but am not sure about copyright, it is a free pattern but do not want to chance getting in trouble.

I love the design she used  Patriotic designs are my favorite designs.
Thank you from my heart.

I did manage to get a couple of finish’s done, one is a pattern from Lynn at http://happinessiscrossstitching.blogspot.com it is from her Black Cat Designs, this is Noel, I bought from here shop, she also has a new design out this month check it out.

I also finished stitching the pattern I won from her, I just love this, I need to find the right sized from for it.

I really like the fabric and rick rack, I found the rick rack in the scrap booking section of Crafts Direct.

I do have more to show but will save for another post.
Merry Christmas Happy New Year

I Need To Vent

After watching the news the last couple of days I am mad very mad and upset over the fact that a snot nose person could refuse service to two Deputies at a Starbucks.
I am a major fan of Starbucks but am about ready to boycott them.
If a Starbucks needs law enforcement to respond do they think maybe that law enforcement should do like they did refuse service, no all law enforcement will go above and beyond to help people.
It is a total shame that Starbucks that has been around for decades would let this happen.
I am not sure what the training for employees is but Starbucks needs to have a reality check, they should realize that if everyone stopped for one day from buying a coffee or treat from them it would be a financial disaster.
So please forgive me for ranting, I come from a law enforcement family, I honor and love all who get up everyday in hot cold and horrible weather to make sure I am safe each day, if I need an officer they come without hesitation.
God Bless Them All.

I Am So Busy

Hello to all my faithful followers and the occasional follower.
Monica: I noticed you as a new follower, please email me your blog address so I may follow you, the same to all others who I do not have your blog address.
So sorry I have not sent emails thanking you for stopping by, I have been very busy.
It is a very busy time here in the Laurent household, I was busy with the Christ Child Luncheon, baking (still baking now for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) snow removal, visiting and of course stitching.
I am this day working on a couple of side Alters for Mary and Joseph Alters, the lace was old and  the fabric needed help.
I am also sewing a new Credence Table Cover, so much to do beside laundry for Church, I love it.
I do have a couple of finished items to show, they were stitched a while ago.

This is a With Thy Needle Thy Needle & Thread design, the frame is very small inside of hoop is three inch's across, I used a pomp pom trim I received as a gift.

This is a Just Nan design  I am not sure of the name because I could not find the pattern, I may have donated it.

This is a piece that was started by someone at Needlework Guild, they put it in the stash relocation pile, I then took it home and finished it into a coaster, I will try and not spill coffee on it.

 This is what I am looking at today light snow falling, my Dear Barbara in Florida: if I could  send you snow I would but the weather man down there may not like me for doing so.

I have started stitching the Pope John Paul design, it is a challenge, I am not a fan of colored charts, I am going to give this to mike for his birthday next year.
I will be starting on my By The Bay design this weekend, that means I will have two projects going at once, not sure how I will do I am a one at a time girl.
Check out the SAL at By The Bay  http://bythebayneedleart.blogspot.com plus Donna is having a giveaway in her Etsy shop, stop over and see what she has going on.

DMC has a boat load of free designs to download, you may have to fidget with  t downloads a bit but there are a few really cute Christmas designs that stitch up fast.
It is time to start dinner.
Thank you for stopping by.

Merry Christmas To All who Celebrate Christmas
