Stitching from the past!

I want to share some stitching from the 1990's and even 1980's.  But first here is a finish which just happens to be the Names Of Jesus piece.

And plenty of work has been done on the sampler as well.

Now for the oldies!  This is a large latch hook I started and Jack finished up in the early 1980's

And one of my favorites that Jack did many years ago as well.

And a piece he did in the late 1980's or early 1990's.

A Jeremiah Junction piece from the 1990's I did.

And another from Jeremiah Junction that I also did.

Not sure when I did this one.

Not quite as old but I really like it!

This is from around 1993.

That was fun! Now for our silly Sylvia.

Thanks for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

Nearly finished!

Well here I am after another long stretch.  I seem to be really bad at blogging lately.  Anyway, the Names of Jesus piece is nearly done now.  I could finish it up this weekend if I try hard.

And I have gotten some done on my little sampler too.

Now for a pretty sunset picture I took tonight.  It was a stunning one after a lovely night and day of rain.

Jack and I needed some barstools.  We wanted two down here at the counter and one for Jack upstairs.  It can be hard to find 24 inch ones but we got these three for a wonderful price.  Someone had tried to make padded stools using plywood and vinyl.  Big time failure!  The plywood digs into your legs and it is just ugly so they will be redone soon.

Our little silly Sylvia just hanging out on her tree. 

Blessings and huggles and thanks for visiting!

Stitching, kitties, and sunsets too!

I am nearly done with this Names of Jesus piece.  Only two names to go.

Last nights sunset and moon.

And my sweet beloved Jack making supper tonight since I am not well today.

And of course Sylvia Joy.

Thanks for the visit.  Not much of a post but best I could do.  Huggles and blessings.

Stitchy, stitchy everywhere

Well, yes I know I have been missing AGAIN!  LOL!  This time with a sick hubby over the weekend thru Monday.  He woke up Friday night with a nasty vertigo attack that beat up on him for three days.  All better now and I am back.

Been switching between cross stitch and crochet.  I have all but ten of the motifs I need for Jack's afghan.

And the Names Of Jesus piece is coming along as well.  It is very near to being done.

Jack and I are loving the colors of the sampler from Cross Country Stitching.

I got a two dollar off code for a friend's website on her latest creation and had to have it!  So pretty.  Her site is Joyful Expressions Cross Stitch if you are interested in looking around.

And of course I have to share a Sylvia Joy picture.  She is in a box under the table in the craft room on her favorite piece of velvet.  I had to have a little fun with it.

Unplanned Break!

Well this time I had no plan or reason for not posting in a few days.  But my camera charger sure did.  The same night of my last post it konked out.  so I had to way for hubby to get paid and find one I could afford.  Hopefully this one will give me 8 years of service like the old one did.

Here is where I am on the Names of Jesus piece.  Not a lot done but some.

I have also started a new piece.  It is from the October issue of Cross Country Stitching.  I am doing it on marble aida from DMC.  In case you are wondering, the cardinals have been bagged up and tucked safely in my tub.  I will leave them their until after the first of the year.  I just am tired still of working on them.

And here is our Miss Sylvia pictures.  Watching us preparing to head out the door to run errands.

Box O' Kitty!

More stair maxin'

Just hanging out last night.

Thanks for visiting!  Blessings and huggles.
