Well, now that it looks like I am back to blogging, I have a wonderful finish and its all possible due to my friend Mary(hugs)cause she was soooooo sweet to send me her charts and leftover silk for rhis amazing Little House Needleworks Design! It was such a fun and easy stitch, in fact I could hardly put it down(maybe I will catch up on sleep now lol). So without further adoo(I dont know how to spell ado lol)

Alot has happened

I don't even know where to start, it's been so long since I posted! Well I should start on a happy Note, I am a Nana....again! This time to a baby girl, born February 16th, weighing 7lbs 6 oz, 20 1/2 inches long, just BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! Her name is Baylie Joline( the line in her middle name is supposed to be from my first name). She is a happy baby and my daughter is so much more relaxed with this second baby, but she is so very busy and overwhelmed at times with a new baby and an almost 2 yr old, my grandson Ricki, who now has to learn to share mommy & daddy with baby sister. Ricki is getting better about it though which is good! It's funny, I have 3 daughters and from the time I brought home the middle daughter when my eldest(the mommy above) was just 13 months old, and she was my little mommy, always wanting to be a part of what I was doing with the new baby then, and then 3 years later when I had my youngest daughter, my eldest was a pro little mommy! LOL But I see now that boys, well at least my grandson, could care less when Baylie cries or fusses, he just continues playing, paying no mind to the extra "noise" in the house! And one good thing is that from the time they brought Baylie home, she has never known "quiet", and probably even sensed that while still in the womb! LOL Boys are so much louder, rougher and animated that my girls ever were! And now that he is talking more and more, though hasn't really formed true sentences yet, his favorite words are "dyno", "batman" and "spider man". He is so entertaining!!!
Here is Baylie when she came home, 3 days old!
3 days old
And of course my adorable grandson Ricki!
Well, I am off to Hopefully get a good nights sleep for a change! I will try to post more about whats going on with me and my chronic pain and fibromyalgia meds! I have a doctors appt today(omg its 1:45 am right now!
Happy stitching everyone!

Thank you Mary!

I feel so bad for not posting this earlier, but like I mentioned in my previous post, its been a busy time! No baby yet, she is now 3 days late, and when my dd went to her last appt on Monday, the doctor told her is she hadnt had the baby by the 18th(her next appt) then he would induce her. If I remember right, that is what he told her for the first one, but she went into labor the day before inducement date! I told her that Bailey(my dgd name)can hear her big brother play wildly and is afraid to come out! LOL I will keep you posted as I am taking the phone to bed with me now at my dd's request!
So I wanted to share with everyone the cutest little gift I received from my stitchy friend Mary. She is so talented in her stitching, I hope to be able to make one of these one day! It was such a surprize to get mail with goodies in it! So I am sharing a pic of this adorable scissor fob Mary made for me! Thank you Mary! xoxoxox

Long time no blog!

Well, I am not posting as much as I'd like too and now have some catching up to do!
I was blessed with a surprize visit by my very pregnant daughter and my 21 month old grandson last week. Her hubby has been very protective about keeping her close by as I live about an hours drive from them, but with strict rules to call him the minute she shows any signs of labor, and he was ok to leave them here for 3 days! Yay! Now that my eldest has married and now almost a mommy of 2 of the most beautiful grandbabies ever! LOL I am a lil' bias! We now get along so well, compared to her teenage years of H E double hockeysticks! HA! And even better is that I have finally hooked her on cross stitching so we have that love to share as well, and she always tells her hubby...."I need to go stitchy shopping at Mom's house" LOL She likes most of the charts I do, so it works out! And when I tell her there is now way I could ever stitch everything I have....her reply is..."Thats ok Mom, I will get it when you're gone" LOL I going someplace! Hehehehe She was joking of course....this is the daughter who fought me every minute of the day for 17 years! And now she calls me 2-5 times a day! Sometimes just to tell me something funny my DGS did or even sometimes the gross things he does! I laugh and tell her its only going to get worse now with the second one almost here, My DGD is one day late now, due date was the 10th of Febuary, but then she was a week late with her first! I think shes staying where its safe from her wild big brother! LOL
So I have had 4 more finishes since my last post, though they are smaller finishes, they still count! LOL
This first one is #4 finish of 2009 and is by Midnight Stitching called Faith Hope Love-stitched on 25ct over 2 with sampler threads called for. This chart,fabby & thread was a Secret Sister Gift this last round! I just Love it!
#4 MS-Faith Hope Love
My # 5 finish is a freebie called Love Letters you can find Here

#5 I Love You freebie 2/6/2009

My # 6 finish is also a freebie by Erica Michael, but cannot for the life of me find it again! LOL
#6 Tic Tac Heart Freebie-2/7/2009

And ta da, my # 7 finish is also a freebie called French Inspired Hearts you can find
and there a few more freebies listed there too!
#7 Freebie Heart 2/6/2009
This last finish was my very fist time using Vikki Clayton silks-color is Old Blue Eyes, and it was such a treat to stitch with. My previous hatred of silk in general is now gone, because this silk slides so easilly and rarely tangles, made stitching this so fun and quick, and I totally love the results of the color variations! Looks like I just might have found a new thread to use! LOL Like I needed it! Hehehehe
Well now that I have caught up on sharing my finishes, I am off to make more to share! How fun is this? Until next time, hugs and stitches to you!

A finish & a start!!

Last night was a good night as I finally finished up PSS Morning Bird
#3 PSS Morning Bird 1/26/2009
This is my #3 finish for 2009! Wow even I am impressed with myself! But then I don't have much of a life, so I stitch with all my free time! And of course as much as I can when my pain is under control for the time! I stitched this PSS design over 2 threads on 28ct mushroom colored evenweave, with DMC floss! I can't wait to get this framed and up for everyone to see, I really should start framing my finishes, if I did I could probably fill a couple of walls! Yeah, its been awhile since I framed , I just keep adding the finishes to my very full tub I have just for them!
I had enough fabby left over from Morning Bird, so I started Midnight Stitching Quaker Faith Hope Love design
MS Quaker Faith Hope Love-1/26/2009
I received this chart, fabby and Sampler Threads from my secret sister Donna)thank you again!) I hope she sees my blog so she can see my stitching!
I also wanted to share a few pictures of my kitties, as they lounge and nap, only to be disturbed by me trying to snap a picture of them! LOL I want to come back as a cat in my next life! I think I already have the napping part down! :)
Here is Jinx, she was actually sleeping in the "cat bed" , go figure! LOL
Jinx-trying to nap!
And here is Peek-a-Boo, I bothered him while lounging in "My" bed?? Or is it his bed? LOL
And last but not least, is Samantha, who unless she opens her eyes, she is just a blob of black! The picture makes her look like an alien cat! Wonder what happened while I wasn't here? LOL
Samantha-alien eyes? lol
Ok, well I am off to stitch a bit more before bed, and I may just have another finish to show off tomorrow, as this quaker is stitching up quickly!
