Cathy got her exchange package, so, I can post a picture here. I found a darling card, and decided to go with a 'blue' theme. I 'grabbed' lots of things to fill a blue tote. I'm hoping she can use some of them. :-) (This was a grab bag exchange on the USExchangeBB.)

I've continued to stitch on the Lizzie Kate Christmas Blessings this week, and will update you all with a picture next week.

Sunday, I am going to join
Cathy and Bine, in stitching on the DT Game Board. Leila is going to join in too, I believe. I am stitching mine on a 32ct. fabric with good old DMC.

I'm thinking I can get another section on the Lizzie Kate done before Sunday, so, I better get busy!

Thank you all for visiting, and commenting! I really appreciate it!!

More Pictures -- stitching ones!!!

Here is my 'Do Not Disturb'. I backstitched the 'Cross Stitcher at Work' with brown. The fabric next to my stitching is what I picked out to make the valances for the windows, and I'll use it to finish this off as a wall hanging.

Here is my 'Quaker Sampler' - stitched thru part three. It is on 28ct. Vintage linen with DMC 930. I really am liking the way this is turning out. **Edit** and now I see part 4 is on the website!! I'm printing it now....

This is 'Tulip Sampler' by Forever In My Heart. It called for silk threads, but, I picked out Crescent Colors Overdyed Floss, and stitched it on 28ct. pink Lugana.

And, here is what I have been stitching on lately... I stitched the border for the Lizzie Kate Christmas Blessings, and will fill in the blocks. Each block is a quick, fun stitch.

I also have started stitching on two exchange pieces... but, I can't reveal the details of those!

Thanks for looking, reading and commenting!! I've been reading blogs, but, have been bad about commenting lately. I'll try to do better!!

I just thought I would share some pictures, until I get some of my stitching photos up. The first one is a few of my tulips that are blooming... As you can see, I also need to find some time to work on the leaves in the flower beds!

Here is a picture of our two black cats on Chuck's recliner. Shadow is on the back, and CeeCee is asleep on the seat. Lazy things....

And, my first ever exchange with the USExchangeBB, was sent off today! Here is a picture of it: (he he he)

It is a 'Grab Bag' exchange... I hope the recipient likes what is in the box.

I guess I'll go press some of the stitching I've been doing, and get some pictures of that. :-)

Thanks for reading and commenting... I've been feeling almost back to normal!

Eagle Eye Watch

Here's a new bird site: Eagle Eye Watch It is Eagles on a nest. For your viewing pleasure!

I did stitch a little yesterday! I finished backstitching the 'Do Not Disturb', and only have one little motif left on the Quaker Sampler part three. I hope to get back to it and finish that up this morning. Then I can take some photos.

I think the cold is finally leaving! I should have taken stock in a tissue company...

Thanks for reading and all your wonderful comments!

of what everyone might be thinking... I am still here! I just really dislike having this cold thing hanging on! I have put in a few stitches on Quaker Sampler, but, keep putting it down. So, I pick up a book to read, nope -- can't concentrate on that either! I think I would just rather sleep!

I did manage to get everything together for one of the exchanges today. Spent a lot of time in my 'craft room', but, didn't accomplish much!

I'll be back soon... thanks for reading. :-)

Ho Hum....

I never stitched last night. I just kinda 'vegged' out on the couch. This #$*% cold had just taken all my energy!!!

Becca and I had fun at Hobby Lobby on Tuesday. I got my DMC for DT Game Board, the missing ones for Easter Bouquet, and some goodies for an exchange I have coming up. I also got two M Design needlerolls on clearance! One was $1.60, and one was $1.00!! When we returned home, I was good and went to put the fibers with the charts. Oops! We picked out three wrong colors! (Becca probably couldn't read my scribbling numbers!) So, yesterday after work, I ran over to Michael's and picked up the three 'right' colors. And, can you just get three floss??? No!! I also picked up a few more goodies for the exchange. :-) Now, I have to get everything together to get ready to mail.

I'm behind on reading blogs -- again! I'll try to catch up soon. I am going to stitch tonight on my Quaker Sampler. I really want to keep up, and not set it aside, for something else, even tho I want to stitch on the DT one, or something springy. Only a few more motifs to go, and this installment will be done. It seems like when I have stitched this week, it has been slow going... must be the cold.

Thanks for the comments -- you make posting on the blog worthwhile! (and Cee Cee thanks you also!) I'll have to take a few pictures of Shadow soon, and share them with you all.

Best get off to work...

Tuesday trip.

Yes, I am venturing out of the house today! I almost am feeling human. This cold has really taken it's toll on me... but, at 6:00 a.m., I took some more medicne, and had the best sleep until the phone rang at 9ish.

Becca was a sweetie this morning and made breakfast, and after she gets done 'getting ready', we will head into town to Hobby Lobby. I want to pick up the DMC colors for DT Game board, and a few other things. This also gives her some more 'drive time'. I don't know if I will be glad when she has all her time in and can get her license.

The sun is shining today, but, they are calling for lower temps and the possibility of snow again!! It's April!!!

I'm working on the third installment of the Quaker Sampler, but, a few of the colors I'm picking up at Hobby Lobby are for Cedar Hill Easter Bouquet. Maybe now that I'm not sneezing every minute (well -- not really, but, it seemed like it.), I can make some progress on my stitching.

I'll post some pictures when I have made progress on something...

Haven't felt like stitching yet today, so I thought I would share pictures of my cat, CeeCee...

He's just a big baby of 15 lbs., hanging around today...

Stork Watch

Nothing to do with stitching... but, I have put the 'Stork Watch' over in my Favorite Places. Check it out... it is a Stork nest, and one is there. :-)

I'm going to go read some blogs, and add a few to my sidebar that I've been reading lately. I don't know if I'll be up to stitching tonight -- still feeling stuffy. And, I have to remember to change the clocks! (I really don't think I need to lose that hour.)

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Maybe stitching on today:
