Rainy Day Posting.

Hello!  I am so, so close on finishing my Rose Sampler.  Only the bottom border to go!
However, I am being sidetracked by making a hoodie!  What can i say!!!!  Sometimes I like to flit about between many things.
We went out for lunch today and to Hobby Lobby as they were having a sale on home decor.  I am trying to buy crosses for every room and I walked out with a cross and this sign.

After I let Jack out and went to park I saw a 2015 Corvette and took pictures.  Do you know those things start at $54,000.00 dollars?

So that is all for today!  Thanks for visiting.  huggles and blessings!

Having fun stitching!

I have been enjoying some cross stitch on my new cross stitch chart.  It is pretty much all wallpaper!  But it is fun!  Two more lines to go and page one will be done. Notice the lines on the edge?  I place them there to help with counting.  With so many color changes it helps a lot!  Monday I will go back to Rose Sampler for a week.
Now let's share some Sylvia funnies!  The first is when she came down I think yesterday from playing upstairs.  She had ripped the ear off a toy mouse and it stuck on a lower tooth!
And here she is tonight with Jack tickling her as she tried to wash.


Lastly, for those wondering, this is the pattern for the afghan Sylvia was sitting on the last post.  Modern Amish afghan

A big Start...sort of!

You will be so impressed with my big start!  I just had to start on the pattern Jack bought for me so without further ado!
And just look how close I am to being finished on Rose Sampler!

And now for some Sylvia silliness and then to answer a question.




I was asked about what our church does for Christmas.  Well, we have not been able to attend church sine early in the year due to my husband's pain.  However, we attend a Baptist church that is fairly low key and does not go over the top.  There will be a special Christmas eve service although in the year we have attended, we have not gotten to attend.  Driving at night is difficult for me.

Good day!

I got a lovely surprise in the mail today.  A chart I had admired and Jack got it for me!  It will take some time to do but I can not wait to start it!  It is from a company I have not heard of called Sunrays and Herrsschners had it.
I have made a lot of progress on finishing my Rose Sampler as well.  Finish up the border on the bottom and one more alphabet after I finish this one.

We also have begun the first of a few phases of rearranging the living room, moving the sofa into the corner.  Next will be taking the desk upstairs for my sewing and bringing down the dining table.  Then the tv stand will go up for storage and the lower part of the hutch will be used for the tv and the bookcase will be moved across the room.  it will take us time but we will get it.
Jack and I met some sweet kitties Wednesday.  First this one at Petsmart.
And these two at the Springdale Shelter.  They were oh so sweet and cuddly but the one Jack is holding had a streak of orneriness!  He tried to eat my headcovering, bit my finger and slapped Jack's ear!  I played with them while Jack fed cookies to the pooches!



And the best for last.  Sylvia Joy got a new bed for under the coffee table.  Next month she will get another for the bedroom.  Spoiled girl!  And here she is playing with a dog toy gotton for her canine cousins in PA.

Happy Sunday!

Well, here I am again!  Hope everyone is doing well!  We are preparing for a bit of freezing rain and sleet tomorrow.  No matter as we will stay inside!  Jack has been busy on the kittens.  He finished one towel already!
I worked on a shawl some and am finishing up the order of pot holders.  Still have ten angels to do but that doesn't take long at all.  The shawl is not really such a loud red.  Just my camera makes it look so!
 I managed to sneak in a little work on my Rose Sampler!  So close to being done!
So when Sylvia was tired of me taking her picture, she sat on my cross stitch.  Sure, I wanted a hairy project!
Just being the queen!

Happy Thanksgivings! And a BIG post.

This says it all!
Our sunset is lovely tonight!
And this is the poor tree out back with just about all leaves gone leaving the nest looking pretty forlorn!
Look at this nifty paint job on the cement truck we saw the other day.  I like it.
And this is a lovely old barn on the east side of Fayetteville that I love,
Look at these darling towels Jack found to make for me!  Love that vintage look!
And I bought this darling set of the Holy family.
It will go with this stitching piece.  I got the chart on sale at my friend Sandra's site which you can find here-> Joyful Expressions
And this is what is keeping me busy still!  Lots of pot holders and a couple shawls and angels and snowflakes!

 My end of the sofa is a bit of a mess!  The black items below the red are bracelets.
I did find time to make a new bedroom curtain!
And now for some Sylvia sillies!
