Some Stitching Some Finishing And many Thank-yous

 Greetings from my heart Friends, thank-you from our hearts for your concern about Mikes health, he is doing much better and hopefully over the hill and on the down side of healing, he had one set back two weeks ago, he is doing a lot better.

There are too many thank-yous to send out about the emails I received with prayers and good wish's, i want to thank-you all.

I have done a bit of stitching, I have been working on a Christmas ornament it is a Homespun Elegance design Simply Santa 2022, I love this design, I did it on 28 count unknown fabric, using two over one thread, I did change up the colors a bit, I hope to have it done this weekend or Monday.

I did finish one of the Just Another Button Company designs, I love this cake

I could not find a good place to take the photo so had to use a pillow as a background, I bought the cake plate at Hobby Lobby, I did change up the trim instead of using the mini pom poms I used a trimp it looks more like I iced the trim on

I did the Bunny Cupcake which I need to add the eyes and add the pink in the ears which I will be painting on

I think he is so adorable, these are from the Pin Lovers Club

Thats it for today, thank-you for your visits on my last post
I will be posting the ornaments I finished maybe in two days, who knows maybe tomorrow.
Have a lovely week

Some Stitching And A Finish Please Pray For The Safety Of Israel

 Hello Dear Friends: 

Please I ask from my heart for you to Pray for Peace in Israel 

Thank-you for all your Prayers thoughts and kind words on Michaels health, so far he is doing better, out of the hospital and hopefully healing properly.

I have been able to do a bit of stitching, I found this lovely kit at retreat and wanted to stitch it, I just have to stuff it, I will show a photo next post. It is a Shepherds Bush Needleworkers Roll, the kits was a partial I used an unknown fabric two over two and specialty threads, there were leftover threads, the scissors were in my stash.

I have a bunch of needle rolls I will have to show sometime, that I have made over the years.

Not a great photo so sorry, I will be stuffing it this evening

I Stitched a Christmas ornament and will construct it this evening, it is a  A sweet design I used Fuzzy                                                 Stuff from Rainbow Gallery's threads for his beard, 

            I also used an unknown fabric and mixed threads to stitch him, he is a hoot, he is stitched                                                                  on 32 count fabric two over two threads

I was able to get a day away for myself last month with the Potpourri Stitchers a group of amazing ladies from Minnesota Needlework Guild members, we went to Buttermilk Basin store, they sell fabrics wool threads and patterns for quilting and felt work, I love this store, so many other items that were not stitching related, it is an amazing store here in Minnesota, they also have a web site, many of their designs are Buttermilk Basin designs. I bought some wool for a Steamer Box top which I need to work on

I bought this a sweet design for winter of deer in snow, I plan on making this in the shape of a heart, it is            beautiful as a heart finish, I bought the kit

Someone at retreat started a bookmark, I finished it by adding the stitches inside the border that was already stitched, I also added the beads and tear drop

I stitched this in April and finally constructed it this weekend, I stitched this on 28 count two over two threads with the called for threads, it is a Blue Ribbon design, I like Belindas designs, if you get a chance pop on over to her site
Belinda has quilt stitching and so much to see on her site, please visit

 I was the lucky winner of the giveaway at please visit Carols blogspot, she has so many beautiful Christmas ornaments she makes her finishing is beautiful.
I won Spirited America Angel, it is a Brooks Books design and so adorable, I hope to start it this week
Thank-you carol

Well its been a roller coaster of a few months, I have lost 15 pounds and not the good way to lose it, I just hope it stays away, due to all the running back and forth to the hospital for Michael and his health
I have been watching a few YouTube videos, my favorite is the Country Stitchers, Northwoods Stitcher, 
Helen D, Blue Ribbon Designs, Vonna Twisted Stitcher, Teresa Kogut, Kindred Stitcher and a few more, it is fun to see what other stitchers are up to.

Until Next Time

An Update On Michaels Health

 Thank-you to all who have left such loving comments, Michael has been struggling to get past the bleeding, however there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Mike went into the Emergency Room on Tuesday last week, with very bad bleeding, he passed out in the er waiting room as we entered, he was taken back to a room and worked on, the pain was so bad he passed out.

The Er Doctor on call that evening was an amazing Lady, she said he should have been admitted to the hospital the first time he went to the er with bladder bleeding, you see he had a surgery called Rezum which shoots four nine second shots of steam to shrink the prostrate (it was horrible) he only received laughing gas which did nothing for the pain during the surgery.

Last Tuesday I almost lost him, he came home yesterday s far no blood in the bladder, he is very tired and has a low hemoglobin which with time will come back.

Please continue to pray for his healing.

I am hanging in there, it is not easy but I know my Faith in God will keep me going plus Praying and meditating everyday.

I will post what I have been working on tomorrow or Tuesday. (I have done a little stitching)
