What's Up?

Well, it was a productive weekend craft wise.  I made four more caps and Jack has learned how to use his circle looms and has made a couple hats.  And I did some cross stitching.  Here are Jack's hats.
Oh and I worked on the houseshoes I am making for friends.  Both top parts are sewn together on the first pair and I got half of one sole crocheted.
Here is the Names Of Jesus piece.  I do need to get some more of the color for the center bit but it is close to being finished.
Love those kitty toes!
Now time for a kitty nap!  Poor tired baby!
Thanks for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

Have a blessed weekend!

It has been a mixed bag kinda week!  We had a wonderful visit from our pastor and another gentleman Tuesday evening.  What a blessing to fellowship and pray together.  Jack is on the left, Pastor Mike in the center and Rick on the right.
Then that very evening I woke around three in the morning with another nasty spell of vertigo and was ill Wednesday.  We also had a brief but wicked storm that produced wind in some areas up to 60+ mph knocking down trees in the area and some people are still without power farther south.  Here are some pictures.  The cart that was knocked over in our yard was next to the townhouse and is very heavy.




Now here is Miss Sylvia Joy wanting very much to help dad with his stitching!  I don't think Jack really needs help.  Sylvia goes into kill mode where yarn is concerned.

Oh and before I forget, here is my progress on The Names Of Jesus.  I have put that down for the weekend to get some more stocking hats and such done and maybe work on houseshoes I have going.
Lastly, Miss Sylvia bathing on the sofa last night.  Silly kitty!
Thanks for visiting.  Blessings and huggles.

Ninty Directions at Once!

I have so many promised items to get done for people that I feel like I am going in many directions at once.  But I love to be busy.
Here is Jack showing off his hat I made for him last night.
And here are the hats I have finished so far fro my friend to give out..
Next here is the Names of Jesus project for another friend.  I should have been farther along but I made a boo boo and had to remove the King Of Kinks name and move it over one.
Now for Sylvia doing three of her favorite things:bathing, chasing a cricket, and giving mom the evil eye.

Thanks for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

Friday Frolics

I got quite a bit of the lettering done on my piece before I needed to lay it aside to do another Names of Jesus piece.
And here is the start on the Names of Jesus piece.  Nice tropical colors!
And lastly, the queen of all she surveys!
Thanks for visiting!  Sorry for the small post but I was ill again this past week  Huggles and blessings.

Tuesday Stitching Fun

I have been having fun taking a break from The Rose Sampler.  I worked on the ear of corn last night and here it is. 
And the magazine I was waiting on came yesterday.  it was not in good shape but the pattern I wanted was okay.
And Jack surprised me for my 55th birthday with this adorable wind chime.  We will go out to eat tomorrow for lunch and a trip to Hancock fabric and Bed, bath and Beyond.
 And Miss Sylvia is up to her silly napping on the back of the sofa.

Thank you for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

Friday Fun

The moon was lovely tonight.  Tomorrow will be a super moon again so looking forward to that.

Now to the cross stitching stuff.  I am finishing up page nine of twelve on the Rose Sampler so decided to start another for a bit of a break.  But here is the rose sampler!
The new project I started is called Bountiful Blessings and will go with the two other prayers that will hang with it by the bar.  I am doing it on a piece of marble aida from DMC.
So there you have it and I am sure you want to now see Sylvia Joy pictures.  She discovered a new napping spot yesterday.

Happy Mail of late!

It's been good mail days since Saturday.  Jack got some round knitting looms in the mail Saturday which I forgot to take a picture.  Here are some books I got Monday.
And today I got some lovely pins and magnets from a dear facebook friend.  She is amazing!  Despite the fact she has serious illnesses she does this for a lot of folks.
And here is the progress on The Rose Sampler.


And lastly of course we have Sylvia in all her glory.

Thanks for the visit!  Huggles and blessings.

Friday Fun

I made another hat but then switched to my cross stitch.  I am getting close!
We also had a very lovely sky tonight.  My camera blurred it a little but I kinda like it anyway.
There is a private pond just south of us and a pair of Canadian geese and their one offspring are living there.  I wish they had been closer!
And when at Hoby Lobby this week I got an early birthday present at 66% off to boot!
Our you ready for this picture of Sylvia?  It was her attempt to cute me into more cookies for her.
Thanks for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

Beginning the week with stitching

Well now let's talk about a secret with Rose Sampler.  I made a boo boo!  Yep, when starting the first alphabet under the top border I somehow got over to the right one to far and did not notice until I got have of it done and did the birds.  I looked and saw it would not affect it much to make the adjustment back to the proper place by sliding the right hand rose over to it's proper place and using that as a reference I was able to realign everything without it being really noticeable.
Here is a toddler hat I crochet for charity.  I will do adult, baby and more toddlers.
Oh and I must tell you I am a very happy gal tonight.  In 2008 I had saved all my patterns onto a disk because the dell was getting old.  Every time I tried to bring them up on the HP it showed nothing there.  I just tucked the disk away and tonight I tried it on our new Asus and there they were!  Some patterns are irreplaceable so I am glad for this.
Here is Miss Syliva looking sleepy next to Jack's work.
Lastly, a puzzle Jack and I have had for years that we love!
