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!
Thanks for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

Rainy Day Post

I am taking a break from my usual work to make hats and Jack will make scarves for  needy folks.  Here is one of the hats I finished last night.  Working on stocking hats now.
Now for some Sylvia laughs.  Here she is trying to make Jack feel better by stretching out with him.
And here she is fixing to nap with her bit of yarn in her mouth to keep me from annoying her with it.
The rest is the usual Sylvia sillies!

Thanks for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

Missed Monday so here I am today.

Yesterday was a rough day.  Friends of ours lost their daughter in love at the hands of their own son.  A very sad time for many.
Bailey Clemons death
But onto happier news.  I started a new round ripple afghan this week with some yarn Jack got for me.
 And I have been enjoying my filet crochet too.
 The Rose Sampler was my biggest source of fun this past weekend.
 Oh my look at poor Sylvia with an upside down head!  LOL!

Happy Friday!

Got the computer up and going and sure do love it.  It sure is nice to not have to fight to do things and having to restart all the time.  Not a lot of stitching to show but here is my Rose Sampler
But I do have lots of Sylvia pictures.

Thanks for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

Saturday? Time Then For A Post!

I have been crocheting away the last few days and here is what my filet crochet looks like now.
And I have also been cross stitching some as well.  I will soon have this section of the cross stitch done.
Now on to the weather.  Did you see last nights beautiful moon?  I got a couple pictures.

And I do bet you would like to see Miss Sylvia Joy also!

And lastly I must tell you we have a new laptop coming and it should be here this upcoming week around Tuesday or maybe Wednesday.  This HP has been so much trouble that jack told me not to even look at HP!  LOL!  So we are getting an asus.  I think the biggest trouble is when the motherboard was replaced, the guy that did it really messed it up and it never worked the same and now the motherboard is going again. 
Anyway, blessings and huggles and thanks for visiting.

I Get To Post!

Well, I think I may get to post tonight so here we go!  I finished up a couple pairs of house slippers for friends and they will be going to their new home next week.
I also finished the Names Of Jesus piece and it will also go home next week.  I am ready to do another and have one that I will be doing soon.
I have been having a little me time as well working on the Rose Sampler.
Friday was Jack and I's 34th anniversary and we went to our favorite place (The Wooden Spoon) for a lovely meal. 
And yes they do have wooden spoons for sale!
And lovely flowers out front too.
We ended up on a lovely tree lined street.  That just made our special day!
We have been having rainy days this week which I don't mind as we need the rain.  This afternoon the clouds cleared off and there was Mr. Moon!

Here is Sylvia Joy wondering if I need help finishing up those house slippers!
Thanks for visiting!  Blessings and huggles.

Computer Woes

Our computer is on it's last leg and very uncooperative of late.  I have been trying to post and will try again tomorrow if the computer will come up.  it took all day today to get it to boot up so we will see.  if i go missing for a few days that will be why.  A dear friend is loaning us the funds to get a new laptop next week.

Finally some stitching!

At last my husband is feeling a little better and was even able to help with some of the chores today.  And I do at last have some stitching and such to share with you.  Jack is working on some quilt squares given to him by a friend.  Love the colors in it.  He plans on doing each of the squares with different color of flower.  Should be interesting.
Well, I was on the last name on my Names Of Jesus piece and ran out of thread.  That stinks big time so I will have to buy more Friday and finish and send it off.
And I am enjoying a bit of filet crochet.  It is a large piece, (14 by 49 inches or so)  and requires quite a bit of thread.  A friend sent me some size 20 thread and that is what I need.  Do you remember the old thread and yarn you had to wrap into a ball?  Yep, that is what we had to do with nearly 2,000 yards of thread but it was fun!
And I caught Sylvia on her favorite pillow on the sofa tonight.

Thanks for visiting!  Huggles and blessings.
