A Little Post

I have been cross stitching away since last we visited.  I do need to put down the cross stitch and do a little crochet tomorrow.  Here is my progress on the Rose Sampler.
 And I would like to show you the little tree we see out the kitchen window.  It is so lovely now.

And here is Sylvia just a minute ago begging for a treat.
So there is my small post!  Thanks for visiting.  huggles and blessings.

Friday Doings

I mailed out lots of packages of finished things today and now I am doing a few things for me before I start on a present of butterfly bookmarks and a couple  angels for a relative of Jack's.  I am working on an oval crochet doily for the top of the bookcase.  I like an unusual pattern now and again.  Here is a picture of what it will look like and below is my progress in Peacock blue.
And I am cross stitching a free piece called Rose Sampler I got Here  I just began it tonight using a house brand of floss from Hobby Lobby.  I think it looks a bit like watercolor.
And here is quite a find for us.  Jack is sitting in an office chair we got for 15 dollars at a thrift store run by a church. 
And now our Sylvia Joy girl!


Have a blessed Easter weekend!  Huggles.

Blood Moon and pink blooms

I stepped out to photograph the blood moon last night.  It was to chilly to stay out until the eclipse was complete but here are some pictures I took.  This one I took just as the clouds were clearing here.

The eclipse is starting now.
 Even more now.
 This is the last picture before the cold and tiredness took over.
And let me share a picture of the tree outside our kitchen window.  I can even enjoy it while I sit on the sofa.
I can't forget that Sylvia wishes to say hello!

Thank you for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

Butterflies and Johnny Jump Ups

I have been working away on angels and butterfly book marks.  here are a few of the bookmarks to share with you.

And I was thrilled to see some Johnny Jump Ups out back so I had to take pictures. 


And lots of sylvia goodness to share.



Thanks for visiting.  Now I must go off and decide what cross stitch project I wish to start.  Huggles and blessings.

Working Away!

I have been working away on my projects.  The shawl is done and had I not run out of another color, the Names Of Jesus piece would be done.  Here it is from just a minute ago.
And here is the completed shawl.  My helper is trying hard to hide behind it!
I will be pretty busy the rest of the month.  I have several orders for the little angels and for some butterfly bookmarks.  I enjoy doing things for other and as long as I can be busy I can stand sitting longer than I like because of my health!  LOL!
Now, here is sylvia Joy with her "what ever shall I do with myself" look.  Silly kitty!

Thanks so much for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

So, So Close!

I am on the last of 4 pages on the Names Of Jesus piece.  So close I can taste it!!!1  Here is a look see.

We had storms last night and the clouds were interesting!  Thought I would share a picture.
And Sylvia at her best!  She loves to use Jack's fingers to wash her nose!

And just being silly!



Blessings and huggles and thanks for the visit.

Rainy Monday Posting

 Jack is really going to town on his baby quilt.  He doesn't get to work on it as much as he would like but here it is.

Well, not enough change on the shawl to share a picture, but lots done on the Names Of Jesus piece.  I am nearly done with page 3 of 4 and they are the smaller pages.  Need also to finish the center.
Sylvia Joy was a bundle of goofy tonight before the thunder caused her to hide.  She was quite happy to lie and watch Jack spin the ball on her toy.  And she did pretty good tormenting the toys herself.


Thanks for your visit.  Huggles and blessings.

Saturday Fun!

I will apologize ahead of time for the picture quality on a couple of the pictures.  You see, not only is our computer slowly dying but so is my camera!  I may pull out a really old kodak I have and see if it is still working.
Anyway, here is the progress on the Names Of Jesus piece.
And I finished up a skirt as well.  I had to trim off a good two inches of fabric to straighten were it was cut at the store.  So I took some yellow quilt binding that had been my grandmother's rather than hemming it the way I normally would.
And I am also working on a prayer shawl!  Usually I work on all three the same day but today just crochet as I have an awful migrane!
Only one picture of Sylvia Joy.  She is keeping Jack company while he lies on the floor trying to get some relief from his leg pains.

Let's Try This Again!

I have been busy with the Names Of Jesus piece but I have been taking time to work on skirts and a prayer shawl so not as much done as I would like!
Now for some fun!  Jack and I took a crate over to Siloam Springs to the animal shelter.  We always love to stop in and visit the kitties.  This little girl had had her time out to play but she was mad as mad could be to be put back in her cage.  She was hollering and throwing herself around and even dumped over her food.  Now THAT is a right and proper temper tantrum!


This is a little fella that fancies himself as very tough!
And our own Queen of the world surveying her kingdom!

Blessings and huggles and thanks for the visit.
