I Have Been Busy

 Hello everyone: I am sad to say that it has been a long two months, many things going on and loads of sewing and orders for beaded crystal balls.

I am working on basket donations and beaded crystal balls for our Church Festival, I have done some stitching.

                                                                      First Up

   I completed the stitching for the class Stitchville USA Spring Fling  had via Zoom did back in 2020

                                    1787 Sampler Smalls and an Ort Jar by Erica Michaels

                   They really are pretty when constructed which I will be working on this weekend

                                                            I really like the ORTS Jar

Nest is a freebie I got from the stash reallocation in 2019 at Needlework Guild Retreat

I will be having this framed and give to a friend for Christmas
I do not work on 14 count but felt this fit the design 

This is a design I bought on the net it is a PDF this is called a square of Bee's so I cannot show you a full photo of the pattern 

This is a Design from Natalie CICHON Jardin Prive
I will stitch the sides this weekend hopefully

I will be starting a design Patrick's Woods A Pennsylvania Pincushion Rollup
I have had this pattern for a few years again another one from stash reallocation at needlework Guild Retreat
I like the brown fabric which was in my stash cabinet for a few years, the count is what I need, and I have some of the threads, I am substituting some colors

As many of you know Mike has some health issues, we are working on getting him surgery for his back lined up and now nurse's want to strike which will put his surgery off, please Pray he has less pain until his surgery, he is hurting so much.

As many of you know I have not commented on your blogs, it is not because I do not want to its just that Google ask for me to sign in and then will not let me sign in, not sure what is happening. 
I read all blogs and comment when google will let me.
Have a wonderful week, soon the snow will be flying here in Minnesota, maybe it's time to move south

God's Blessing's to you all

Great projects!
That ORT jar is too cute!
I am having trouble with Google also.
My husband had his surgery & is doing well.
We had to wait 4 hours for a room!
I sat there for 11 hours.
They are short-handed on nurses also.
Prayers for Mike, I hope he can get in soon.

Catherine, it seems a lot of people are having issued with gets frustrating when you don't know how to fix it.
I Love the Erica Michaels project and hope she'll release to everybody at some point. I stitched that bee piece years ago; it is so sweet.
I hope all goes well for your hubby and he gets his needed surgery sooner rather than later.
Have a great holiday weekend!

Oh what pretty finishes and I love the gift you made.
I am sorry Mike is in such pain. I understand back pain all to well. I just tried shots for my back, and am in worse pain for it! I am praying the pain eases. I know nurses are overworked and are quitting. Our Jacob is forced to work overtime all the time at Children's. :(

Pamela said...

You have been busy!! Your work is lovely. Praying for Mike's pain to be less and that the surgery will go forward and be successful!!

Sandy said...

I will continue to pray for Mike. I pray he can get this surgery soon and get back to good health. You have been a busy bee. Everything is just wonderful. I think the 14 count wss perfect for that stitch. Take care and doggone that Google. It just tries to ruin all the fun. I have trouble commenting on anything but my main computer. I suspect it has to do with updates. They generally put things automatically that we may have had turned off.

Catherine, you have been very busy. All of your stitching is so very pretty. I hope Mike can get his surgery soon and has a speedy recovery. Back pain is awful. I have suffered a few times in the past (once when I was only comfortable when kneeling) and thankfully have not needed surgery. I really get frustrated with computer stuff. I just had my new car in the dealer's shop for over a week as it would allow Apple CarPlay to connect so I had to keep glancing at my phone for navigation. I am sorry that Google is giving you fits. Enjoy stitching that pincushion rollup. I am looking forward to seeing it.

Beautiful work Catherine, you have certainly been busy. Jardin Prive is one of my favourite designers. Your Erica Michaels pieces are lovely. I hope your Hubby gets the help he needs soon.

Oh Catherine. I was so enjoying your lovely stitching, and then you posted the s word. South begins with S too, now that's a plan!

Katie said...

Beautiful work on everything. Hope the surgery comes quickly.
