I am so very happy - Pages 1 - 10 is Completely Finished Now....Yeah....I am so happy about this.  Since this photo was taken I have moved onto Page 11.  

Now I am on Page 11/36 Pages.  

I love how this is turning out.  The Flowers are very heavy confetti stitching and I have more of them to do...YIKES.  But that is okay though.  

I only stitch a 10 x 10 Block from start to finish before I go to the next 10 x 10 block.  This is my way of keeping from making mistakes and getting lost.  I do not use Pattern Keeper...I get the Hard Copies from Heaven And Earth Designs and I mark off where I stitch on Paper using a Red Gel Ink Pen.  I have been doing it this way for years.  I do not care how many stitches I have stitched or how far I have gotten or how fast I have stitched.  To me this takes the joy out of Stitching.  I take my time in stitching on my projects.  I am in no hurry to get them done.  Sitting down and stitching for a while is a joy to me without counting or how fast I am stitching.  

Hope that all of you are staying safe during this COVID-19 Virus.  My State is under lock down.  We are allowed to go to the grocery store and to work and to Restaurants to get take out food.  I have been staying home myself stitching and reading my books.  

Take Care - Stay Safe - Be Careful

God Bless You

I needed something real easy to stitch on at night so I found this in my Stash and I am stitching this.  I am going to hang this in my Kitchen when I am done with this.  I love how this is turning out.  

This came out of some Cross Stitch Magazine but I do not know which one it is.  

Thanks for looking :)

28 Count Ice Blue Lugana
2 x 2 Full Cross Stitch

This is one of my favorite projects that I have been working on last year and this year.  I just dearly love this one.  What you see is part of a White Bench.  The Quilt is laying over the Bench so that is what you are seeing in this photo.  

I try to work on this every day as well.  It is going slow due to tons of block color changes in the quilt.  

It is snowing out where I live at - Yuck!  Today is Saturday Jan 4th.  

I hope that all of you had a good stitching week and that you got lots of stitching done.  

Take care

God Bless You

I am having Heart Problems

Dear Friends

   Sorry I have not been on here for a while but its been a whirlwind for me the last couple of months. 

Back in October I went on my DeColores Weekend in another state.  It is a Renewal Faith Weekend type event.  There were 17 of us ladies altogether that came from all over the United States.  I went with my Pastor's Wife and another lady from my church.  My Pastor and his wife Sponsor me.  This has really made a difference in my life and I am still overwhelm by all of the love that was given to me and shown during my DeColores Weekend.  DeColores means many colors.  Everything took place at a church.  We slept in the Sunday School Classrooms.  They fed us really well.  It was just a awesome weekend. 

Tonight is our get together of the DeColores Community so me and my Pastor and maybe another lady from our church may go to this tonight.  It is a big event tonight. 

I have not stitch a whole lot - it causes me to have Severe Muscle Spasms in my left shoulder blade area and I have gone to P.T. twice now this year within a 4 month time frame.  I only stitch maybe once a week for a half hour or so and that is it.  The Same way with Crocheting too.  I love to Crochet but it too causes me to have Severe Muscle Spasms.  I have not been in pain now for about two months.  Thank goodness for that. 

I have heart problems - the Heart Specialist that I have now is keeping a closer eye out on my Heart Problem.  I loved my other Heart Doctor that I had before but he was not thorough enough for what I have.  I have what is called Right Abundant Branch Block which means that the Electricity does not go past the right side of my heart.  Well you know - the Electric Signal that goes through your body.  Mine stops at the right side of my heart.  The only symptom that I know of is if the left side of my Heart becomes block is passing out. Than I would have to have a Pace Maker put in.  This coming Monday Morning I go in for my Second Heart Test.  I don't mind the test itself but what I am concern about is the outcome of the Results.  That is what concerns me.  Please keep me in your prayers and thoughts.  Thank You. 

My area has been really really cold - very icy out - but it is starting to warm up now and the Ice and the Slush and the Snow has started to melt.  Yeah for that. 

Well I think that is about it for me.....

God Bless
Love & Prayers

Fabric Color: Isolde by Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie

This is my progress as of Friday Sept 6, 2019.  I am making my way across on the 4th Row from the Top.  I am getting closer in getting this done.  

I am so in love with this.  The Colors are just beautiful.  The Photo does not do it justice.  

I have not decided yet whether or not to keep this...I may give this to a dear friend who loves this and also drinks Tea.  The Empty places you see are for the Beads.  

My Current Book that I am reading is called "The Black Cat" by Martha Grimes.  I am reading this on my Kindle cause it is easier on my eyes.  I have the Physical Hard Back Book as well.  

We have been having Fall Weather and I am loving this weather...it has been so nice and cool out and it is so much easier on my breathing.  

My Town has the Falloween Fest every year in September with a Huge Parade on the Opening Night.  We have a Carnival - The Parade - Fireworks - Food Booths - Games Booths - Big Garage Sale - Music by different Bands - Food Booths - Suppers - Soups.  We have the whole works.  This is held at my high school that I went to.  The High School Kids and Staff does not have school the following Monday.  This is Sept 20 - 22nd.  I am so looking forward to this.  I usually go on a Friday Night and Saturday afternoon.  This is from Friday Sept 20th to Sunday Sept 22nd.  Than on Sept 23 The Schools are closed.   I am so looking forward to this.  I get my Carnival Hot Dog and my Elephant Ear.  I don't go on any of the Rides.  

That is all for now....

God Bless You
