Hello, it's been a while

Hi everyone, it's been a really long time since I have posted on here, as I haven't had internet at home for several years now except on my phone. I now have an android phone so I am posting from there. I am also experimenting and seeing if I can post a photo.

Well, that didn't work.

Long Time No Write

Hello everyone, it has been quite a while since I was on here. I still don't have internet at home so only get on here once in awhile from elsewhere. I have been doing a lot of stitching but have no photos to show unfortunately. Right now I am working on Summer Retreats by Country Cottage Needleworks. I am almost finished with Ladybug Lane, and have already finished Honeybee Hideout and Butterfly Bungalow. I am going to make all three of them into small decorative pillows.

I appreciate everyone's kind comments and I hope you are all doing well.

Hello everyone

Just wanted to pop in and say hello. It's been quite a while. Thank you to everyone for your kind comments, I really appreciate them. I still don't have internet and it will probably be a long while before I do, but I am doing just fine. I have been getting a pretty fair amount of stitching done. Right now I am almost finished with a project by Kustom Krafts called Early Light Cardinal. I am doing it for my boyfriend for Christmas. I can't post a photo right now, but it is a beautiful project.

I am at my sister's right now for a few days of vacation, relaxing and enjoying the visit.

I hope everyone is doing well, and I will pop in again from time to time. Again, thanks everyone for thinking of me, and I miss all of you as well.

Letting Go of Internet

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I have posted. I have been working on things, just haven't got anything scanned in.

After a lot of serious thought, I have decided to let go of my internet and landline for now for financial reasons. I hope to gt them back at some point but it will be a while. I will still have my hotmail and yahoo accounts, which I will be able to check from the library from time to time.

In regards to my PIF, I have one finished, one almost finished, and one more to do and will definitely be getting those out one of these days soon. I will still have this blog but I won't be able to post as often or post any photos. Thank you so much to everyone who has stopped in here to visit, I will miss coming on here.

No Pictures Yet

I am working on several things but I don't have any pictures to show yet.

I just checked out a new stitching blog. It is called Lisa's Stitch and Share, and she has got some really beautiful things on there. She just started it this month.

I have finished one of my PIF projects and I am ready to put the second one together. Then I have one more to do. I am also working on a wedding announcement for my son and will have a photo soon to show of that.

PIF from Elisa

I am so excited! I just received my PIF package from Elisa at Old Ragged Threads in the mail today. It actually came just in time for my birthday, which is tomorrow, so that is pretty neat. She stitched a pinkeep for me, with a little stitching fairy on it. She also included some other goodies along with it, which are in the photo. The little green box that says "apple" on it contains a little apple scented eraser. The fairy is a freebie that she stitched from Cara Mia, on 32 count white Jobelan with Ozark Sampler Threads, in Aladdin. I am currently working on my PIF projects as well. This is the very first PIF that I have ever taken part in and I am really enjoying it. Thank you so much Elisa for including me in yours!

Small Quaker Finish

Here is another small piece that I did. I actually did it before I did the biscornu, but I am just now getting it scanned. It is one of the motifs from the Mon Ami Pierre Quaker freebie that I have. I did the whole large piece earlier and decided to use this motif for a needlebook that I am getting ready to make. I did it on 28-count Angel Blush lugana with Azalea thread from Weeks Dye Works. I am working on one of my 3 PIF projects right now as well, so I won't be able to show any photos of that until it gets sent off to it's new home. So, I am keeping busy anyhow.

My First Biscornu

I just finished my first biscornu ever, and I am pretty happy with it. It isn't perfect but I like it. I scanned it the best I could considering I don't have a digital camera. I will at least not be afreaid to make another one.

Tante Zolder Finish

Last night I finished stitching on my Tante Zolder butterfly freebie. I was intending to do it all in one color but changed my mind. I did it on Angel Blush 28-count Lugana with DMC thread, and I am going to make it into a biscornu. I have never made a biscornu before, but I think I will be able to do it ok. I have read several tutorials on them and it looks like it would not be too difficult. (Hopefully).

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day. Mine was a quiet one. My Valentine and I do not live in the same town so we don't see each other as often as we would like, but we talk every day, and we did get to see each other earlier in the week, so all is well.

It is a nice sunny day here today but not as warm as it could be. I'm just glad it's not raining or snowing.

Wow, I just received an award!

I just received this awesome award from Erynne. This is my very first award ever and I am really thrilled about it. Now I will send it on to 5 more "spreaders of love". From reading their blogs, I can see that they are all kind-hearted, caring, sharing and talented people. (And they are not the only ones). Thank you Erynne, and thank you to everyone who takes the time to stop by here and to leave comments.

And here they are:

Valentine Surprise!

I had a wonderful surprise yesterday when I went downstairs to check my mail-a Valentine package from a friend in Florida with whom I did a Christmas ornament exchange this year. It was awesome and totally unexpected. Along with the things in the picture there was also a little box of Russell Stover chocolates and two Valentine Tootsie Pops! One of the things in the photo is a little notebook with a neat little inkpen. And I love the heart bookmark and pin. Now, one of these days I will surprise her with something!

I am currently working on a Tante Zolder freebie of a butterfly. I have done this same chart before in multi-colors, but this one I am using one color over one on a small piece of Angel Blush lugana. I am thinking maybe trying my hand at a biscornu with it when it is finished. That will definitely be something new for me but I have no doubt that I can do it.

Finally another photo

It has been longer than I intended since I have been on here, but I do finally have something to show for my time away. It is the Quaker freebie from Mon Ami Pierre and I am doing it on blue 28-count Monaco with Gentle Arts Sampler Thread, Purple Iris. I am really enjoying it. I started it the day before Christmas and I am almost done with it. It is rather large but the photo doesn't show anywhere near all of it because I don't have a camera and it wouldn't all fit in the scanner, but it shows the general idea anyway.

I also have done a few other Christmas ornaments but have not got them scanned yet.

I have three projects to do for the PIF that I am taking part in this year and I plan on getting started on them very soon. I haven't decided what to do yet but I do want them each to be something special and maybe a little different than anything I have done before.

Will have more photos soon

It's been a little while since I have been on here. I went out of town for a few days the first weekend of the month, and just have not posted since I got home. I have been working on several ornaments though, and have some finishes to show when I get them scanned in. I still have several more to make, but I am making good progress.

Woodland Snowfall Finished

Woodland Snowfall
Diane Williams
of Little House Needleworks
This is what I was working on for the SAT at Let's Stitch for this week. I just finished it a few minutes ago. I got it from the 2004 JCS Christmas ornament issue.
I hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving. I know I did. I had dinner with one of my co-workers and her family. She had invited me and another one of our co-workers, as neither of us had any plans for the day. I was just going to hang out at home, as I am going down home for a visit next week, for a four-day weekend. Anyway, it was a lot of fun, and the dinner was excellent. I took her one of my ornaments that I had finished for a thank you gift, and she really liked it a lot. Afterwards I came home and relaxed and started the ornament that I just posted here.

Glad Tidings finished

Glad Tidings

I just finished this one last night. All it needs now is a hanger and it is ready to go to my exchange partner in Florida. (she is not a blogger, to the best of my knowledge).
I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
