I am very slowly making progress on this one.  Right now I am in Confetti Stitching City.  I have one more 10 x 10 block to do which is all Confetti and than the row will be completely finished.  As I am writing this I am stitching the very last 10 x 10 block on this row that I want to finish up.  I should be done with my last 10 x 10 block today in the row that I am working on.  Than I will be able to start my new row.  I am still on Pages 4 & 5 and finishing them up.  Than I will be able to go to Page 6 next.  Yeah! 
I love stitching on HAED Patterns - they are fun to do and so enjoyable even with the Confetti Stitching cause that is what makes the picture stand out more is the Confetti. 
Its Foggy and Stormy out today - I am going to stay put, sit out on the front porch with my book and with my stitching.  My Front Porch is enclosed so its nice and confty out there on the front porch and I have my Card Table set up so I can sit there, read or cross stitch.  I love it and both cats loves the front porch as well.  The Front Porch is my Domain.  I have nice big windows that I can look out of and see the traffic go by.  I love it.  The Windows slides right open if I want to open them up.  My Cat loves to sit in the Corner Windowsill - that is his Domain. 
I am in the process of getting a new good used car and my one brother is helping me.  My car that I have now is 14 years old and now I don't have no Inside Lights and I am not going to put anymore money into my car.  If I have to go someplace at night I will use my good flashlight which I've done before to shift gears.  Its going to be 14 in June.  My car has really good gas mileage and its just the right size for me and I love it but there comes a time when you just have to give something up that you dearly love.  I wish I didn't have to give up my car but I do.  Its not going to last too much longer.  It has lots of Mileage on it now and its getting old like me and its breaking down like me...hahaha!  As of this writing I think my one brother has a car for me and he is suppose to call me today about a car. 
My Book that I am now reading is called "Tuesdays at the Castle" by Jessica Day George.  Its a Children's Book and I am not sure what Genre it falls under.  I don't know if it is a Mystery or a Adventure Story or what.  It is a Library Book.  The Chapters are short so it won't take me long to read this book at all.  There are two more books in this series and its funny because the first book does not give the other titles in this series.  They were altogether on a shelf at my Library and that is how I discovered them.  Off hand I can't remember what the other titles are.  Once I get these three books read than I am going to start reading the books off of my Later To Read Shelf that I have on my Library's Website.  I can create as many shelves as I want on their website under my Library Account.  I have over 300 books that I want to read that is on my Later to Read Shelf.  Right now I have a whole bunch of Magazines that I put on hold a couple DVD's.  I go to the Library every Wednesday morning.  I love spending time at my favorite Library.  Wednesdays are my Library Day.  I love it :)    I get to see one of my favorite English Teachers from high school that I had cause she works at my favorite library.  The reason why I say Favorite Library is because there is a Library in my hometown where I live at but they very seldom get new Books in and there isn't much activity going on at the Library.  The Library has had some major problems in the past and it has not been the same ever since. In the next town over which is 15 minutes away from where I live at they have a super fantastic Library and there are activities there for Kids as well as for Adults and its a small size Library but they are very powerful as I put it.  They have a Snack Area where you can sit down and have a Snack if you want, they have computers, they have real comfty chairs by the big windows looking out on the major highway/street.  I love it.  They can get you any book that you want if they don't have it.  I have access to 7 different Libraries throughout my County that I live it.  I can get all kinds of Magazines through the Library's Website.  A Library does not have to be big to be your favorite Library.  I miss going in the Winter Time due to the weather.  Usually I will try to go to my favorite Library all the way to the end of November or the first part of December depending on the weather.  Than I just have January and February to miss of not going to the Library.  During those months I read the books that are on my shelves here at home. 
Everyone have a Beautiful Day :)   Thank you all so very much for the Comments...I really and truly appreciate them.  They make my day :)
God Bless You
Love & Prayers

  1. Your front porch sounds like the perfect stitching spot.

    Enjoy watching your HAED grow.

  2. I like the sound of the front porch too! Your Daisy Offerings is coming along beautifully.

  3. You must have a great library where you live. I only have access to the small libraries around here and they don't offer the technical possibilities like your library.
    Nice progress on your project.

  4. Your porch sounds like a lovely, comfortable stitching spot.

  5. Your porch sounds a lovely place to sit and relax.
