What a weekend

First and formost I want to thank all the brave men and women who have sacraficed and continue to sacrafice for our great country. Thank you!!

What a weekend it was. Friday night DH and I decided that after a whole week of passing each other due to work schedules we thought a date night was in order. We went to our favorite little restuarant here in town, after wards we came home and decided to go for a sunset boat ride our neighbors happened to be in town for the weekend and they had not put their boat in the water yet so we invited them along and this was what followed us on our journey home
A beautiful full moon.

It was getting alittle chilly and I thought it would be romatic to have a nice fire in the back yard and a glass of wine with my hubby , well a fire is an open invite for EVERYONE to come over LOL We did not mind at all we had both neighbors from each side of us come and join us. We were up till 1 A.M roasting marshmallows, laughing and havving a good time. The weekend progressed in much the same way to much sun, to much food and not enough sleep LOL We are so thankfull for the neighbors we have, they are just wonderful and I know it is going to be a wonderful summer here on the lake.

And with such a funfilled weekend that only means there was hardly any stitching done. I am still working on Star Spangled Banner, maybe by July 4th???? Here is where I currently stand with this piece, all that white on the boarder is killing me I kind of wish I would not had done full XS :/

Thanks for stopping by and thank you to everyone who have expressed intrest in the charts I had up for sale on here and on FB. I can't hang on to charts I have already stitched or ones I know I will never get to, best to send them off to new homes :) I will be getting back to everyone tomorrow. If some so not sell or the sell falls through I will relist them again :)

Have a great night

To many charts and not enough time

Good morning beautiful friends,
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We sure did but boy do they go by fast!!
The title of my post I am sure is something many stitchers feel. Yesterday on a FB page I visit someone was looking for a Lizzie Kate chart,now I knew I had it somewhere at least I thought I did so I said let me look through my things and I'll get back to you. Could not find it anywhere. While digging through my charts I realized I have some wonderful charts and then I wondered why is it I have not stitched any of them yet??

There are at least ten in that pile I would LOVE to stitch sometime in my life HaHa! Then this brings me to another point. Organization!! I am usually a very detailed and organized person. When my Husband and I first started dating we went camping with his family I was given the nick name of "Inventory Conrtol" I knew where it was and how much of whatever was left and what was needed. I took that name as a compliment. But it seems these days I am anything but that LOL

What are some of your ways to keep charts, floss and fabric organized? I would love to hear your thoughts.This is a picture of my little stock pile of charts, they are usually just sitting in a cupboard and when I need one I go through the WHOLE pile. It is pretty time consuming, which is probably why I have not stitched as much as I would like.

I will end this post with this picture of Samson playing with a turtle that happened to wonder in our yard... He was in love as you can see him licking it.. Ewww

No turtles were harmed in the taking of this picture

Thanks for visiting

Happy Mother Day

This is a photo of my Mother and I circa Feb. 1978 I was 1 month old. I was a total surprise and a very hard labor. She was the best mother a child could ever ask for. She listened like a friend but gave advice a mother could only give. And it was after I was married in 2000 I started to really listen to her advice, but then then in 2004 the lord took her away. She is forever in my heart and there is not a day that goes by that I would love for her to be here with me. I miss her everyday, but I remember all she taught me in life and know her spirit is with me always

Happy Mothers Day Momma!!

Wishing you all a very Happy Mothers Day

everyday is a blessing

Sometimes I can take things for granted, I am sure everyone has done so. But when I sit back and think about the blessings I have had in my life, even the smallest ones, I am able to smile with a grateful heart. As my dad would say " Every day aove ground is a good day"

This week has been filled with wonderful events. We helped find the owner of a lost dog. I named him Tucker, only to find out his name was Hunter.
He jumped out of someones truck. He was just the sweetest thing ever. My husband and I feel in love with him but we knew he had a home elsewhere/

Last week I noticed this
now there are four little birds.

This is probably the last picture I will take, the parents are very protective, even when I am nowhere near the bush that the nest is in they swoo[ down and threaten to poke my eyes out.... I need those for stitching.

Which BTW has been slow going. I am working on Star Spangled Garden by CCN and the banner has alot of white, someone suggested I stitch some white areas and them stitch a flower and rotate but knowing me I will just leave the white area till the very end and never finsih it, so I am going to chug along and get it knoced out by this week.

I will leave you with a picture of my sweet Samson.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Monday. Almost the weekend WooHoo! Take care!
