Lots of updates!

I thought it would be fun to take pictures of all the cross stitch projects Jack and I had done over the years. Not counting of course, ones already framed or given away. I honestly thought they would all fit on the bed but it avtually took to photos to do.

I am nearly done now with my rooster.  His body is outlined and now I am working on the grass and then I will outline his legs.
Jack and I have been sitting and cross stitching in the evenings a lot this past week so he has a lot done as well.  It is looking good!
Here is the wolf.  I have stopped for now both for a break and probably until I get the needed floss.
So there ya go.  Be blessed and huggles!

Stitching, stitching!

You know I have to start with Sylvia when I have a good picture. She does this quite often and it is so cute!
Jack is back to working on his project.  Not much longer and he will be outlining this section I think.  It is really coming to life.
Here is my wolf.  I am starting on page six although not quite all of page five is finished.  I ran out of a couple colors and no extras so I will continue on until I get some bought.  I have been enjoying doing him but at the same time I will be glad to hve it done since I started on it last year.
Hope you enjoyed the update.  Have a wonderful week and be blessed.  huggles.

Wolves.cats, Jack & more!

This has become the usual around here of a morning in our living room. Looks all sweet and innocent right? Actually it is very funny as Jack tries to defend his bowl of cereal and see thru Sylvia to do his morning computer stuff!
Yummy!  Made a batch of bread pudding!  The recipe is here.  It came out perfect and so good on a cold day!
The wolf is coming along well.  I am out of a couple colors with no extras but it won't stop me!
This is a close up of the area I am working on.  I am filling in the area from around his eye down to the "button" of his nose.
Not much alse going on with Jack being down with his foot.  I hope your day is blessed!  Huggles.

Happy Monday!

You know when I have good pictures of Sylvia I have to share! She loves this pillow on the sofa. So much so that if Jack has his feet on it when she wants a nap, he gets the "look". LOL!

Today Jack is not feeling well at all.  Lots of pain in both feet making it difficult to walk and feverish.  It is old hat for us and shall soon pass.  I spent some time rubbing his feet which often helps.
He did get some work done on his project.  It is just going to be beautiful when it is done!
Miss Sylvia this morning watching the world.  She often sets there when we are on the computer to keep us company.  She likes to come over on the desk and interrupt your computing too!
Here is my project.  At last the wolf has an eye!  I am nearly done with this page and it wasn't to bad.
So be blessed and huggles.  I pray you have a wonderful week!

Shall we dive into some cross stitch?

I caught Jack just a bit ago sewing away on his project. He is so used to my orneriness he didn't even bat an eye!
Miss Sylvia Joy got a present in the mail today from our dear friend Karen.  that cat now has more toys than Carter has liver pills!  LOL!
Here is a picture of Jack's project.  I can not wait to see it finished.  When he adds the outlining, that really just sets it off!
My wolf has the beginnings of an eye.  I would have been done with it, but I made a mistake in placement of a row of black so a rippin' I went.  Back on track now if I can keep a certain cat from sneaking up on me and laying on it when it is in my lap!
So that is what we are up to these cold snowy days.  I hope you are blessed!  Huggles.

Sylvia and the wolf

So Sylvia took matters into her own hands this morning. She fed herself and left her dad a note. Really, she did!
A nice long nap after a busy afternoon of mouse bashing!
Been working away on the wolf and have a good bit done.  The bit next to the white was a pain with a lot of colors jumping all over the place.  Still enjoying it though.
So that is a very short post for now.  Preparing for around 6 inches of snow here tomorrow.  Hope you have a blessed Monday!  huggles.

Attacks of many kinds and stitching too!

There has been plenty of this going on with Sylvia this week. She do love to nap!
But there has not only been toy mouse abuse but also blatant rug abuse!
And the torturing of innocent house shoes!
Quickly followed by more of this!  LOL!
Now on to some stitchy stuff.  I am really close to finishing my rooster!  Right now I have switched back to working on the wolf.
Here is Jack's progress on The last supper.  He is coming along really great!
I am in an area on my wolf where the colors jump around a lot so my going is slow but I am getting there!
So that is what we have been up to.  I hope you have a blessed, wonderful week!  Huggles.

The Rooster has legs at last!

At long last the rooster has a leg or two to stand on! LOL! Working on his tail feathers now and then the grass and outlining and he will be done.
Here is Jack's Last Supper project.  With his new glasses he can see again to do his stitching and doesn't even need his mag eyes.
And here is the wolf.  I ran out of a couple colors so I need to get that before I carry on.
So that is the stitchy stuff we are up to.  hope your week is blessed!  huggles.
