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....

I made a little bit more progress on the Mother this week.  There are tons of Confetti Stitching with this one.  I am stitching this for my Best Friend.  I took a photo of her Parents and I turn it into a Pattern and now I am stitching her Parents for her.  

This is the second one that I have taken a photo of something and turn it into a Pattern.  I love doing this.  It is so much fun and so enjoyable.  

Thanks for looking...enjoy....

18 Count Charles Aida Material

I am slowly making progress on this.  I have a little bit of stitching done on the very bottom left hand corner.  It is nothing but Confetti Stitching so it is very slow going now.  I try to work on this a little bit each day.  I love stitching on this.  I am on Page 7 out of 36 Pages.  Some of the Pages are Blank.  

The Pink Spot that you see is part of my Blanket on my Bed...it is not on the material.  

Thanks for looking...enjoy....

Way Too Hot - Been Reading alot

Dear Friends

   I don't know what happen to the pictures of all of you Followers up at the top of my Blog but I wish they would start showing up again.  If anybody can tell me please do.

My area has been having some horrible Hot Muggy Steamy Weather for the last few weeks and we are not getting any type of breaks whatsoever.  It makes it worse when you don't have Central Air in your house and all you have is a small Window AC in the Living Room Window and that is it.  I do have box fans in my bedroom and in my Den Room plus have all of the Ceiling Fans going as well.  It did rain through the night last night but I didn't hear it though.  This weather is so hard on me due to my breathing and everything else.  The only time I get any relief is if I go out riding around at night because the Air is a little bit cooler at night plus I have my AC going in my car too when I am out riding around.

I went to McDonalds last night here in my town thinking that I could just stay there and read for a while and enjoy some cool air.  Wrong.  That didn't happen at all.  They have the entire seating airea all torned up,  their AC is not working or is not turn on, they don't have no Ice Cream.  Now mind you - yesterday has been the hottest day of the year for my area and other areas of the USA and they would have to have no AC on at McDonalds.  I wanted to go out riding around last night to get cooled off but it was lightening out so I didn't do that.  I came back home, and I watched Netflix on my Tablet.

I have not been stitching at all since it became very hot - I cannot stitch when it is hot.  I read my Books during the summer time.  I am reading Book #10 in the Nancy Drew Mystery Series which I can't remember the title of it right now.  I am also reading "Desert Heat" by J. A. Jance on my Kindle Tablet.  This is Book #1 in her Joanna Brady Series.  I have decided to start reading my own books here at home that I have on my shelves so I can give them to my girlfriend or to Goodwill or to my local Library.  The only ones that I am buy anymore is the Nancy Drew Mystery Series Books.  Now if I really want to read a book than I will buy that book because it is brand new and its not marked up or torn up or the spine is not broken.  I buy my books either from Amazon or from Barnes and Nobles.  If I buy my books from Book Outlet they put a mark on the top or on the bottom and I do not like that at all.  Plus they do not carry all of the books that I like anyways...they are mostly Science Fiction and Fantasy and that is about it.  This is why I stay with Amazon or Barnes and Nobles.  I can get any book that I want from these two places.  I am a member both at Amazon and at Barnes and Nobles.  I am finicky about my Books.  I was always taught to use a Book Mark and to be careful with my books and I've been that way ever since.  Some people use post it notes tags - you know - the small thin strips on the edge of their pages throughout the books - I won't even do that.  I don't have no reason to put tags in my books.  I just want to read my books and that is it.  No markings, no tags, not bent corners.  This is just the way I am.

That is about it for now.....

God Bless You
Love & Prayers

I only have a half of a 10 x 10 block to finish up.  Than I have a Full 10 x 10 block to stitch and than Page 4 will be completely finished.  Than I can finish up with Page 5.  Yeah.  I am so happy and so excited.  

I have been stitching on other projects too but this is my main one and "Parents" are the two that I am concentrating on right now.  

We have been having very extreme hot humid stormy weather lately and yesterday was the worst so far.  It was so humid and so hot yesterday plus it storm - Sunday.  I stayed in all day yesterday and last night.  I did not go anywhere - not even to Church.  It was just way too hot for me.  

The two Library Books that I am reading is:

Dear America - My Name is America - The Journal Of Douglas Allen Deeds - The Donner Party Expedition - 1846.  This book is so very interesting and basically it is a Non Fiction Book.  I dearly love this series because it tells the stories of Frontier People and Frontier Land and back in the 1700's and the 1800's.  This is very Educational as well.  You learn so much from reading this series.  The name of the Series is "Dear America".  I have read some other books from this Series in the past.  

The other book that I am reading is called "A" is for Alibi by Sue Grafton.  This is a Alphabet Mystery Series and it is so good.  The Detective throughout this whole series is "Kinsey Millhone".She is so good and she is funny at times.  I started to read this series long time ago and than I quit on it so now I am reading this whole series Non Stop.  I love series like this.  Than I want to read all of Agatha Christie Books too.  My Library has them all as well as the Sue Grafton Alaphabet Mystery Series.  

Oh I have decided to start going to my very own local library - they have lots and lots of books on their shelves and I love going there, sitting down, being surrounded by tons of books, and reading my Book.  There is something about spending time at a Library just being surrounded by books and reading.  I am in 7th Heaven when I do that.  

Yesterday morning - Sunday - I received three Book Packages and the Books that I got are:

Apollo - Rick Riordan

The Tenants of Wildfell Hall - Anne Bronte

The Diva Serves High Tea - Krista Davis


I will be getting another book tomorrow - Tuesday - from Amazon and it is called

Magnus Chase - This is by Rick Riordan and it is Book #1 in this series.  I have Pre-Order Book #2 already from Amazon and it will be coming out in October of this year.  

I prefer Hard Back Books so if I want a Book I will try to get it in Hard Back but if I can't that is okay too.  


That is all for now....

Have a Wonderful Day, Night, or Morning

God Bless You

Progress 6-13-2016

I am almost done with my 5th Row on Pages 4 & 5.  I have two more 10 X 10 Blocks to do and than Row #5 will be completely finished on these two pages.  Than I can go onto Row #6.  

I am reading a book called "Different Seasons" by Stephen King.  I got this book from my Library.  It is really good so far.  This has like 4 or 5 different stories in it so I don't know if I am going to read all of them or not.  This is the only book that I am currently reading for right now.  

I have started to make Book  Tube Videos on You Tube.  My You Tube Channel is under Linda Klinedinst.  I have made Four Videos so far.  I am getting better at making them but I need to quit saying the word "And".  Oh I hate that when I do that in my Videos.  If you have a You Tube Channel than I would like for you to subscribe to my Channel.  

We are having Hot Weather and we don't have Central Air - all we got is a small Window Air Conditioner in the Living Room Window and that is it.  We do have Ceiling Fans going though and Box Fans going if we have to have them going too.  

We are suppose to be getting storms tonight - Friday I think it is.  I hope so and cool this weather down a little bit.  

I had Company on Saturday - some friends of mine - Husband and Wife - from my former City came and spent the afternoon with me.  I was so very happy to see them.  I met them at a Pizza place in my Town and we had Pizza, Cheese Garlic Bread, and Ice Cream.  Oh that was so very good and we really had a good time.  I showed them around my town.  

Please Pray for Orlando....I have a Friend that Lives there and he isn't that far away from where the shooting took place.  They all need our Prayers and thoughts right now.  

Have a Beautiful Night, Morning, Afternoon
