Bennie, cross stitch and jam!

Have I told you about Bennie? I can not remember. We adopted him Wednesday from the same folks we got Katie from. He is a riot and you can not hardly tell that he is mostly blind and almost totally deaf. He lives life with gusto and that tail is always wagging. You should see him playing in the backyard!

Isn't he pretty?  And Katie gets along very well with him.  But it does confuse her a bit as to why he does not respond to her barks and the fact that he often does not see her.
 Now on to stitching!  I apologize for the pic of my angel.  My camera is slowly dieing so sometimes things don't look the best.  I am nearing the end on her.  Gotta do the rest of the beads and catch some things I missed.

And here is a piece Jack is working on.  It says Bless this kitchen and at the bottem it says, It needs all the prayers it can get!  LOL!  How funny and cute!
I made some strawberry freezer jam last night. It is so tasty, like fresh fruit. I plan to make homemade bread Sunday. Do drop by for a treat!

That is it for me for now.  God bless and huggles.

A little stitching

I am so close to being done with this one. Just a bit more on her dress including some more metallic floss and then time to do the beads! been a fun stitch but I am ready to move on!

Poor Jack is slaving away on the last corner in the living room. Been a frustrating thing as well. He spent a lot of time repairing and preping the wall for paint and then when it was painted you could just hear popping noises and the paint developed blisters all over.  We had to peel and scrape all the new AND the old paint off and start all over again.  It is finished now.  just a timy bit of baseboard for me to paint and a small bit of wall to paint above the windows.  Then on to the bedroom to tackle that painted over wall paper border!

So that is our week! Thanks for visiting! God bless and huggles.

Here I am!

This is usually what I see if I turn around while I am working in the kitchen.

I am getting really, really close to be donw with this! I can not wait!  Been a good project but I am ready to start another.

I am calling this one done even though I realized I forgot a couple stitches. Won't take long to do that then I can mat and frame it.

This the latest pair of pillowcases Jack finished. I really like them and he did a good job.
So that is it for now. Huggles and God bless!

Not frozen yet!

Katie is waiting for Jack to come home from his errand. She gets so excited when he returns and runs around with a toy in her mouth!
A wedding announcement I am about to finish up and my Blue Moon angel. She is about done as well.
This was taken just after church and the fellowship meal. We only had 41 in church as so many live out in the country. Only 15 of us dared stay for dinner. I love the snow but it is awful cold. It has been in the single digits and highs only around 15 and may dip below zero a few nights. Brrr, that is MORE than cha-willy.
Well that is my short but sweet post. God bless and keep you. Huggles.
