That's why they are called accidents!

This weekend has started out on the rough side. My DH was driving to work Thursday morning and got into an accident and he rear ended a Van. He did some serious damage to his car and we thought that he had broken his wrist, but by the grace of god the Doctors said from the x-rays it was just a very deep bruised bone. He is in a soft cast till Tuesday when he goes back to our doctor for a follow up. When his airbags deployed it thrusted his hands up to the winshield and shattered the windshield. Right now "she" is sitting in the Tow yard waiting for the insurance guy to come pick "her" up I am so thankful that no one was seriously injured. He his home and the doctors put him on bed rest for three days and also instructed him to wear a neck brace, he is such a stubborn boy and hates that thing LOL Meanwhile on the stitching front I finished up the third installment of my Friends through Stitching 2012 exchange. It has been a real pleasure stitching for my partner Jennifer she is a lovely person who I am wishing all the best for This is what is stitched for her, I enjoy making biscornus, they are such a fun finish, and SUPER easy. I recently received my JCS ornament mag in the mail and I am beyond thrilled I found 8 designs that I would LOVE to stitch, now will I stitch all 8?? Probably not but a girl can dream can't she Hehehe! I do thank you for visiting me here in BLOG land and I appreciate all your comments. Take care and happy stitching *FYI I dislike the new blogger format ;)

?? :/ ??

Do you find it hard to come with a title for your blog posts? I do all the time hence why todays is blank LOL

I know, I know I have not posted in awhile, hopefully if I start posting more my followers will stick around :) This week I am still working on Plum Street Samplers Coffin Buzz. I hope to have it finished by the end of the week so I can start working on Christmas ornaments. I had intended at the beginning of the year to work on an ornament a month, but somehow that never happened, so maybe I can crank out three by Christmas. We shall see.

I want to share with you a picture of my sweet boy Samson. He just turned 11 this August and has to be the best ever. Lately though all he wants to do is nap. Oh he will rough house with his sister and chase a ball but when he wants to curl up on his bed and nap by gollie let him sleep LOL I love this pup and all the happiness he brings to our little family.

But I can't leave out his sweet little "sister" Licorice. She was adopted but shhhh don't tell her LOL. This is her I am SO cute begging pose.

Art and Wine Festivle 2012

I can always tell it is the end of summer when the Art and Wine Festival rolls around. The one held in September is the biggest of the two. Usually housing the most vendors and it always has the best bands.

Yesterday I got to sit outside in the sunshine and listen to a really rocking band the The Rodeo House Band They were awesome!! I got a tad to much sun and was feeling a bit over heated while at work last night.

Today the show was still going so after the Hubby and I went to the local PUB to watch the Browns* Who lost by the way* I meet up with a neighbor and we browsed a few vendors. I ended up coming home with these three pretty pieces of jewelry. I usually don't wear much except for my earrings and my wedding ring, but these were just so delicate on. The earring are actually a gift for the neighbor I went with. She is a truly sweet lady and it will be any early Christmas gift for her, she might be moving to San Diego soon. She bought me the silver necklace, Much to my protest!!.

I will say that I have really always disliked apartment living, especially here in the Bay Area, there is no sense of community. But in the place we live now, and have for the last 4 years I have really gotten to know my neighbors and we all know we can rely on each other and know that we all watch out for one another. That is a really good thing.

I want to thank those that leave me such wonderful and warm comments and emails and also to those that just look :) I appreciate each and every one of you. I hope have a wonderful evening I am off to watch the Broncos and Steelers.... LETS GO BRONCOS :)

Pinterest Made Me Do It

How many of you go on Pinerest? And then how many of you actually create some of the things you pin??

I am guilty, guilty of pinning like crazy but never attempting any of the wonderful ideas that I see. Until recently, My good friends wedding was this past weekend and I wanted to give her a handmade gift but had no time to stitch anything. So I came across an idea to take the wedding invitation and cut it into strips and place it in a clear ornament.... I am so glad I cam across this idea. I can really see doing this again and also for a baby's first Christmas. Such a great idea. I curled the pieces of paper around a pen to get the spiral effect but left the Bride, Groom and Date in a straight line.

Topped it of with a bow in the wedding colors placed it in a box and when they return form the honeymoon I will take this to them.
