Happy Spring Here In Minnesota

 Greetings top all my faithful followers, thank-you from my heart for your comments, thank-you for all the private emails I received about how well I am doing, this touches my heart, thank-you so much.

I am doing well, I have flutters every once in a while but the doctor said that is to be expected due to the angry areas that were invaded with the ablation, it will go on for up to three months.

My husband likes to give gifts, he was raised with three sisters they taught him to be kind to the lady he marries, Mike wanted to give me an anniversary gift before our 47th anniversary, he is so kind.

I cried so much the day the DMC box arrived and with all the threads, I am so grateful for his kindness

This is something I had been looking at for about a month, he must have seen that I was interested in this design, and to think this came in one day it is a Minnesota company that sent it.
I sit with my back to the office door facing the window so I can enjoy the outside and what is going on with the birds and children playing its so much fun to see the children having fun

The threads are amazing, they are so soft and silky, I am not sure when I will start this one, I have two projects going now which I have never done before I will share                                                 them with you today

I did buy this on Etsy the site is: NARAxcrossStitchPatterns, there are some lovely                        designs on that site, hopefully I will start this one before fall

 This lovely Sampler is from The Wishing Thorn, I bought my first design from                                             Birgit one year ago, I love her Samplers

 I won this on a YouTube video giveaway, I am so sorry I cannot find the name of      the Youtuber, her name is Lisa Smith, I am so sorry about not remembering her              YouTube name, I will hunt it down and let you know her YouTube name

You know I love doing wool applique and working with wool, well I found this         sweet design online and hope to get to it sometime soon, I will make one change instead of the Fall letters being on different hanging fabric I will do them all on one     piece of fabric, also I plan on not doing the cotton fabric it is too wrinkly for me

This is what I am working on now, I love the Cats from Kitty and Me designs, I had stitched one a little over a year ago, now this one, I love the blue fabric Pamela chose but could not find it anywhere to purchase, this is the other on I want to enter                                                   in the county fair in July

 Next up is the Nativity Band Sampler this I also bought in the Etsy shop, by A New Creation by Alison, she has some amazing designs

 I am not a fan of black or dark blue fabric but this works for me so far, I started this on Saturday evening, did not get much done, I also want to enter this one in the                                                            county fair this year
 I would like to show more of what I have been up to but do not want to make this so long, again than-you for your kindness to Michael and myself for all your                                                        prayers they really do work

I Am Home And Recovering

 I want to thank- everyone for your personal emails, it is so kind of you to send good well wish's.

My ablation surgery took a little less then 2 hours, I was told if there were complications it would take 3-5 hours, everything went well, I am feeling better have done a bit of stitching and watching a boatload of Fraiser, I think Niles on that show is such a hoot and easy on the eyes.

I cannot do much until Monday, I have a weight limit and need to just relax, Mike has been doing all the cooking and cleaning up, he is such a sweetheart, I am so lucky to have him.

I will be posting again later this weekend after I have done a bit more stitching.

Thank-you from my heart

I Am Still Here

 Hello to all my followers, thank-you for hanging in there, many things have happened here, I will not go into details except that I have been spring cleaning, lots and lots of spring cleaning.

I have done some stitching since Easter Morning after Mass, it felt so good to have needle and thread with fabric in hand, I had done some finishing which is not a lot but some.

First I want to show you my new design I bought just today on Etsy it is from A New Creation By Alison, she is an amazing designer and has so many beautiful designs I want to stitch but being a one at a time stitcher I will buy from her again after i finish this beautiful design, it is Nativity Band Sampler so beautiful. I hope to have the black fabric in my stash or maybe a dark blue will do. Please check Alisons site out. She is offering a 10% discount I hope you visit her.

I did finish stitching Santas Workshop from Stitching Fairy, she is also on Etsy she has a blogspot: Please visit Lyn  also.

Not sure how I will finish this one off, I will think a little.

Brenda Gervais Valentine Sampler

This is a Brenda Gervais design I stitched a while ago, finally finished the pieces,
The box's are painted a medium green with a Bree Wax finish, so sorry I did not take a photo

I love the pillow without trims around it, I did try pinning on a ribbon but felt it look like way too much ribbon because of the ribbons on the box's and needlebook, I am happy I only pinned them on just to see how it looked instead of stitching or                                                             glueing it on   

 I really like the folded book it is lovely in my eyes I should have taken a photo of                                                          the inside, so sorry

     This was to be a scissor fob but I stuffed it too much now it is a mini pillow

I also did finish a penguin from a club at Not Just Another Button Company, I will show you the photo in my next post he is adorable, I just do not want to post a long                            post today, have to get ready to go shopping
I hope all is well in your homes, please Pray the hatred stops in the world please                                      also pray my surgery goes well on Tuesday
