It has been a year wow

Can't believe it has been a year since I've last posted on the blog. Alot has happend, thats for sure. I am dealing with ovarian cancer and I received good news from the doc which is always welcomed. You get tired of hearing the bad news. Just finished a letter to my son, who is in boot camp. He graduates September 1st. Can't belive it's almost over for him, he probably thinks its like forever. I did. Sometimes I miss the Navy. Well getting back to stitching, right now I am working on Blackbirds new loose feathers called Summer. I will get a picture as soon as I can. I took
a brake from stitching and framing. I am sure glad I am back doing it. I wouldn't have never thought that I would take a break. But it happens. Happy stitching:)

The Summer

It's unbelievable that it's August already, the summer has just flown by. Last time I tried to post and upload pictures I had problems we'll see how this goes. I have been so busy with the framing business and my new job as Sacristan at church, that my blogging has been at a standstill. I miss looking at every ones blog and seeing what every ones working on. Need to make time for the computer. I had a fever for four days, and have a ear infection and bronchitis. I am doing real swell hear. I am working on the new prairie schoolar halloween chart. I have changed everything and I thing it will be to cute. I will take a picture tomorrow and post it.

Just finished the Lizzie Kate Spring Fab Fob...I think it came out so cute. The 1st picture is a piece I finished for Charolette. She hsasn't seen it yet. I found this feux leather at Hobby Lobby, Charolette had this antique hanger that she wanted to use as the hanger. The second picture is of a egg cup I got from Hobby Lobby, I made a little pin cushion. We will going to the YO Ranch this weekend for camp..I can't wait. I am stitching and not finishing or framing anything.

Some finishing I have been doing

I tought a punchneedle class last month and Letty one of my students made me this little oval box with my initial.. It made me tear up, she is so thoughtful...
The Lizzie Kate Halloween piece is Melissa Q's, We chose a double frame...Just love this piece.
Besides framing I have been finishing. Here are some pieces. I stitched the heart, there are beads around the whole heart. The Santa pin is from Kathy James, she ordered this grape brass piece, and I had to figure out how to mount it, into a pin. I put red velvet on the back, with trim around the sides came out cute. Francis Sandara stitched the other two pieces. She stitches them and then gave them to me to figure out. Above the carolers it says Shepherds Bush that is for the piece above that, that I did.

The New Year

Well it's been forever since I've blogged...Lets see if we can change that and try to stay current. Since I started framing for the shop I have been busy. Especially around Christmas. I completed a stocking for a lady and ornaments galore. I did finish a Little House piece in November. When I can find my camera I will post the picture. My daughter has decided
that she now thinks the camera is hers. Wrong. Life just seems to pass on quickly.
I miss blogging. In five days it will be two years since I have had a cigarette. I still occasionally miss them, but they say you'll have that the rest of your life. I am prepared though. I feel so much better. But I did feel like I lost my best friend. Is that sad or what. Well happy stitching.
PS I just can't wait to see the Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow piece. It's driving me nuts.

I have been so busy, I can't believe I haven't updated my blog in almost a month.

I have been involved with my son's football. He played so well. Tonight was his last game they lost to a undefeated team but they played very well and we are proud of him. He even had an interception. It's hard to believe that he will be
18 on the 5 of November. I think sometimes that I don't want him to grow up. Even though I know they have to. Tomorrow I am working at the shop and going to a Spurs game. My buddy Benji won tickets at work. I usually like being home for
Halloween, but I can make exception. Well I hope everyone has a howling halloween. Penny
