One tired Old gal!

Well, I finally literally hung up my apron for the day. I am plain beat! I made some homemade cinnamon rolls. Thank goodness the bread machine does most of the work but it still causes me a lot of pain to do it. I am happy to do it though. Jack and I will have one for a treat tonight. Quality control ya know! LOL! Mainly I made them for the three of us before Tina has to go back to the facility after church tomorrow. I also made a pasta salad for our lunch tomorrow and I will make some oven toasted Parmesan bread. There is also cucumbers for Jack and Tina fresh from our neighbor Jack's garden. I will pass on those as I don't care for cucumbers. Anyway, on to stitchy news. Here is my Angel. For a change of pace I am working on the moon. I am also working on our bedspread and I am crocheting an afghan for Tina in lavenders and pinks which she loves those colors.
Here is one of the pillowcases Jack has been working on. Lots of satin stitches in it. He is taking a break before doing the other one and is working on another quilt square. This time with yellow roses.
Look at that Katie girl! What a mess and what a hog to! She kept trying to take the whole love seat and made sure to give me a good kick every now and again to remind me I was taking to much room! NOT! She had more love seat than I did. What a piglet!
So before the storms roll in I will get off here. God bless and keep you all and a blessed Sunday to you.

Hi Michelle,
It sounds as though you've been working hard! Those cinnamon rolls will be a real treat. Bet they smell just yummy, don't they! Love the picture of Miss Katie. You really shouldn't work that poor dog so hard LOL!
Have a wonderful Sunday!

A Note From Theresa said...

I missed so much! I just read all of the post I missed.

I just love cinnamon rolls, and home made ones are always better than store bought.

Thanks for all your sweet comments and prayers.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Cinnamon rolls?? Hmm, that sounds good and I haven't had breakfast yet either!

The angel is coming along great, it's lovely!

I LOVE the pillow cast, it's so pretty!

That's one happy dog!

Cute Katie always makes me smile :) You and Jack are making such good progress in your sewings! They are lovely.

And thanks, Michelle, for your very sweet comment on my blog. I am always encouraged by you and many others. I am very thankful for you being in my life too! Thanks for your prayers and encouragements. Thank God for causing our paths to cross in such wonderful ways!

Take care and have a blessed week ahead!

Hello Michelle!
Your dinner preparations sound so good! I know those cinnamon rolls are gonna be a real treat!
As always, I love to hear and see all yours and Jacks handwork--just beautiful!
P.S.--I can understand how a dog like Buck can be kind of scary, and he is a big dog--One of the reasons I got him, (besides the fact that I have always loved German Shepherds.) was for protection. But he really is a sweetheart to all our family and friends. He is trained to protect only on command-- it is very good to be cautious though.
Thank you for always stopping by the cabin and for your kind words!
Blessings to You!

Cinnamon rolls, needlework and a loving are the wealthiest folks on God's green earth.

Love those wee roses and the angel too!

Rub Katie's belly for me.

YOu have been very busy. The stitchery is just lovely.

I make cinnamon rolls, but not so much in the summertime! Good work.

~~Deby said...

you are a busy lady..your needlework is sure coming along..not to mention your other projects..
Jack's satin stitch looks great..I am not good at it..does he have a tip????...I tend to stay away and just use a stem or outline stitch...this looks BEAUTIFUL, Michelle.

~~Deby said...

Hi Michelle, You sure have been busy. I just love homemade cinnamon rolls.
The angel is really coming along,such pretty colors;) Jacks pillow case is beautiful too.
I am going to answer your question you left on my blog:Yes William is autistic.It took a while to determine it though.It's a toss up as to which damaged him.Either his baby shots or from being in the birth canal too long.The Dr's seem to think it was the second.Though that points a finger at on of their own.
Things happen,and I love the child regardless.His father is still looking for someone to blame. I just love my grandson and look forward to seeing him
God bless, Donna

You and Jack are both so talented!!! Your works are just beautiful!!! I love to do things like that but I still work so not much time to do the things I enjoy so much!

Nice that Tina could come for a visit. I think I read in one of your posts that she came for your birthday?? If so, Happy Birthday to you!!!
