14 Count Aida

DMC Threads 

2 x 1 Full Cross Stitch

Started: December 17. 2015

Finished: Tuesday November 29, 2016

I am so happy to have this done.  It almost took me a whole year due to Illness and sometimes Life got in the way of my Stitching plus Moving.  

Now my next two projects are Daisy Offerings - HAED - Artist is Sandra Kuck and the Designer is Michele Sayetta.  Silver Moon Tea by Mirabilia - Nora Corbett.  These are my two projects that I want to finish up next.  I am on Page 7 on Daisy Offerings out of 36 Pages.  

I haven't been reading much lately cause I am in my Stitching Mood and I just want to stitch on two more of my projects - one easy and one a challenge...what can I say.  

The Book that I am reading is called "Bastion" by Mercedes Lackey.  I am like 50% done with the book.  

That is about it for now...not much else is going on.

God Bless You

Its so cold outside

Dear Friends

   How are you all doing on this Very Cold Windy Sunday Morning?  ...it is so cold outside - it is 31 Degrees F plus the Wind is still blowing a little bit.  We had Rain - Snow - High Winds yesterday and the day before yesterday.  This weather of ours - Indiana - is so crazy.

   I have been reading "Bastion" by Mercedes Lackey - this book is so good.  I am really enjoying this book.  I am taking my time with this book.

Linda Fairstein came out with a new series and its called "The Devlin Quick Mysteries".  Book #1 in this Series is called "Into The Lion's Den".  This new Series is like the Nancy Drew Mystery Series Its very similar to that series of Nancy Drews Books.  I bought this book from Barnes and Nobles.

Speaking of Nancy Drew Books I have ordered Book #19 in her Series and Book #19 is called "The Quest Of The Missing Map".  This book was published in 1942 and was written in 1942 by Carolyn Keene.  This book has 25 Chapters in it.  The First 34 Books of the Nancy Drew Books has 25 Chapters in them.  This is a known fact.  I have the History on all of the Nancy Drew Books.  I am slowly buying them a few at a time.  I want to be able to own every single Nancy Drew Book that there is.  I also want to own all of the Hardy Boys Books too eventually.  I ordered Book #19 of Nancy Drew Mystery Series from Barnes and Nobles.

I have been stitching on and off when I feel like it.  I've been having Muscle Spasms in my Left Shoulder Blade area from Raking Leaves and the pain is just awful.  Its better now than what it has been.  Its not bothering me so much at this time.  I am still stitching on "Parents".

That is about all for now.....

God Bless You

"Parents"
Copyrighted by Me
14 Count Aida Material
DMC Threads 2 x 1 Full Cross Stitch

This is my progress photo of my Best Friend's Parents that I am stitching for her.  Its her Mom and Dad.  The Father is completely finished now.  I am finishing up on the Mother.  I stitch on this in the late afternoons and evenings.  I am doing the easy section now.  I will have Page 3 completely finished by the end of this weekend.  Than I will just have Page 4 to finish up and than this project will be completely finished.  

After I get this one finished than I want to finish stitching on Daisy Offerings which is a HAED Pattern.  I so want to get this one done.  I am not sure who I am going to give this to or what yet.  My Best close dear friend passed away two years ago and it was for his granddaughter whose name is Daisy but his family does not have nothing to do with me anymore which I knew was going to happen anyways which is okay with me.  They live a total different life than what I do anyways.  I am thinking about giving this to another little girl and re-naming it to match the girl's first name which is my girlfriend's granddaughter whom I am really close to.  Well that is - if I ever get this one finished before I go up to Heaven.  

The Book that I am currently reading is called "The Girl Who Drank The Moon" by Kelly Barnhill.  I am almost done with this book.  It is a Middle Grade Book and I am loving this book so very much.  It is a really neat book to read.  

The weather where I live at is very windy, cool, and sunshining...it is Fall time where I am living at so the Leaves on the Trees are turning colors and the trees are becoming beautiful.  I love Autumn because everything is so beautiful.  I need to get out and go for my walk and take pictures of the trees before all of the leaves falls off of the trees.  Yesterday it did not do anything but Rain and very Cold outside.  I laid on my bed all day and read.  

Hope that you are all having a very good Friday and a lovely weekend.  

God Bless You
Love & Prayers

"Parents" Progress Photo - Other News

"Parents"
Copyrighted by Me
Progress - Friday Sept 30, 2016

I have been making lots of Progress on "Parents" which is Copyrighted by Me.  This is a picture of my best friend's Parents.  I am stitching this from a Photo that I transfer into a Pattern.  The Father is almost done.  Than I just need to finish up with the Mother and than this project will be completely finished.  

Its been a very rainy stormy cloudy cold kinda days lately - the last few days - so I've been snuggling in with my Fleece Blanket and stitching up a storm.  

This is the only project that I am stitching on.  I need to have this done by the 27th of October.  I am giving it to my best friend on that day and spending some time with her.  

My Town had their Falloween Fest this past weekend so I was busy spending time at the Falloween Fest at my High School that I went to long long long time ago and I hung around with my friends and ate lots of food.  I got my Elephant Ear, my Cotton Candy, and Nachos with Cheese on top...Very Yummy Carnival Food plus I also got a Hot Dog and Fries.  

That is all for now.....

God Bless You

Progress Photo of Daisy Offerings, Reading, Weather

100_9470 - Daisy Offerings - HAED - Artist - Sandra Kuck - Designer - Michele Sayetta - Sunday August 21, 2016

Daisy Offerings
HAED

Artist - Sandra Kuck
Designer - Michele Sayetta

18 Count 2 x 1 Full Cross Stitch

Total Number of Pages - 36

More Progress on Daisy Offerings.  This picture does not do it justice at all.  Row #1 on Page 7 is completely finished now.  I am so glad.  Now I am on a roll...hooray.  

I take my gridding out each time I start to stitch a 10 x 10 block.  This way my gridding won't get caught in my stitching which it has so I just take it out when I am stitching within that 10 x 10 block.  I stitch a 10 x 10 block one at a time from start to finish.  There are tons of Confetti in this pattern and that is why I only do one 10 x 10 block at a time from start to finish.  Otherwise I would be totally lost and the edging would not look right at all.  

My Book that I am currently reading is called "Friday Barne under Suspicion by R. A. Spratt.  This is a Hard Back Book which I got from my favorite Library that I go to alot.  I am also reading "Desert Heat" by J. A. Jance as a Kindle Book on my Tablet.  I am also reading "Centaur Rising" by Jane Yolen.  This is my own Hard Back Book which I bought at a Library Book Sale long time ago.  I am not going to go to anymore Library Book Sales because I am trying to read what I bought from the last two Library Book Sales.  I am buying some of my Books that I want to keep.  Actually I prefer to buy my own books period.  They are not marked up, they don't smell like Cigarette Smoke, and they are in excellent shape, the corners of the pages are not turned down.  I am a very finicky person when it comes to how my Books look.  I have always been that way since I was in Elementary School.  My teachers always taught me to respect a Book and not tear it up or mark in it or use Sticky Tags or turn the corners down - use a Book Mark.  I take my time in reading my Books - I am not running a Reading Race or anything like that.  If it takes me a whole year to read one book than that is fine with me.  Reading is suppose to be enjoyable and not a race to see how many books you can get done in a week's time.  I want to enjoy the book that I am reading and take my time with reading my books.  My Library that I go to I am allowed to keep the books for three weeks with two renewals.  I love this.  I only get one book at a time from the Library.  I would love to check out a whole lot more than that from my favorite Library but I don't.  One Book at a time for me.  This way I can take as long as I want to read it within the guidelines of course.  I have never ever been late in returning my Library Books.  

The weather has cooled way down and I am so glad that it has.  I can now Breathe and have fresh cool air come in through the Windows.  I would love for my brother to take out the Window Air Conditioner out of the Living Room Window.  

Well I think that is all for now.....

Thanks for taking the time out to read my Blog, and to leave comments.  I really appreciate each and every one of my followers.  You are such a inspiration to me.  Thank you so very much.  

God Bless You

Silver Moon Tea Progress Photo

Silver Moon Tea - Mirabilia - Nora Corbett - August 11, 2016

Silver Moon Tea

Mirabilia - Nora Corbett

28 Count Lugana - Isolde

2 x 2 Full Cross Stitch


This is my progress on Silver Moon Tea.  The ends that you see on top of my material...it is called Waste Knot Method.   I watched a You Tube Video on this and I love ending my threads this way.  I don't stretch my end of my threads as far as they tell you to in the Video.  What you do is that you bring your thread up to the top of your material just a little ways from where you have stop stitching like I have in this photo and make a slip knot with your threads on top of your material as close to the material as you can get it and you leave your ends sticking out on top of your material until you have stitch over the line of your thread on the back side and than you cut your threads that you have on top of your material just right underneath your knot. I hope that this makes sense to you.  This way you don't have no tail ends showing on your back side of your material.  

The Material - 28 Count Lugana - Isolde - is from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie Bishop.  I dearly love love this material.  It is so soft and easy to work with.  Its kind of a purplish-pinkish type colored of material.  The photo does not do it justice.  

This is my very first Mirabilia that I am doing and I love stitching the Mirabilias.  I have several patterns already that I want to stitch that are Mirabilia.  

I know what happen to all of my followers photos at the top of my Blog - you have to click on Next in order to see all of them...so only a few of you are showing up and than if I click on next and keep doing it that way than you will all show up.  I am glad that I got that problem solved.  I just wish all of you would show up all at once like it use to be.  

Thanks for looking...enjoy.... 

Love & Prayers
