Life....

Sometimes life just gets in the way with my blogging. I guess that is all I can say about not posting for so long.  I do enjoy reading so many of your blogs now I need to get sharing more.  At least I have been stitching and crocheting.  Mostly crocheting and a knitting project for this lil man..
 Such a little angel.  He loves Mickey and will be having a first birthday themed with Micky so in that  honor I made him a hat..
For Easter Nana knitted him up a lil sweater(Sure hope it fits:/)..
So Nana finally got some cross stitching done..
I am enjoying stitching this.
Well dinner is simmering  on the stove, zucchini bread is in the oven and laundry is going.  I think I will wrap for now and stitch away hopefully finish the installment on Frosty Friends and get back to the last Mickey themed crochet project.
Until next time (hopefully not so far in between postings)
May you be blessed with stitches,

Making Progress..

I have been stitching along and making progress on the birth sampler…
It isn't as bad as I thought it would be with the color changes.  I am really pleased as to the way it is turning out.  It will look really cute in the lil man's deer themed room.  I don't know why I didn't get going on it earlier.  Oh I know why it seems like every time I was ready to start it the DD or DDinlaw had a project they wanted me to do for them;).
Yesterday I thought it was time to get my DD and DSinlaw housewarming project finished up…
I was pleased with the results.  It was my first time trying a little quilted wall hanging.  I guess I just need to get over the fear of finishing and jump in and try.
Well here is a little early Valentine…
His momma is getting so good at picture taking.
Until next time

Here we go again...

Well all I can say is that we have had a winter and it is not over yet.  I have heard that before next Sunday we could have another 2 feet.  The first wave starts tomorrow.  Well it would be nice to have another snow day :) guess time will tell.
I finally got started on this lil love bug's birth sampler….
He just melts nana's heart.
I am doing Stoney Creek's Forest Babies…

It is coming along better than I thought it would.  At least no blended needles for this one but lots of color changes.
I decided the other day that I should use my lunch hour time a little more productively so I have been knitting..
It will be a little scarf when I complete it.
Well hopefully were ever you are you keep safe in this weather..
Until next time

BRRR its cold

We are experiencing below zero weather again.  I guess we are really having a winter this year.  Guess it is only fitting to be working on Frosty Friends...
Square number two is done. I guess I will finally get to start the birth sampler for this lil angel while I await the next installment..
Looking forward to starting it this evening.
I sure wish I could be curling up in my corner of the couch like my other love bug today..

But it is off in the Arctic weather to work I go.
Until next time

Just Stitching along

Hello blogging  buddies..
Sorry for the no post last week.  I had planned on it but couldn't get the pictures to upload and then the week was gone.  I started a new job in September and this was my first year end close.  Since the 2nd(minus the snow day) I have been working since 7am till about 8pm and then the first two Saturdays.  Leaving work at 6:45 last Friday and not having to go in yesterday was such a blessing.  So the worst is behind just a few more loose ends then back to normal. Hopefully with the stitching time as well.  I just finished the first square to Frosty Friends….
Hopefully I can get a nice start to the second square the rest of the day.
Counting my stitches and the days till next Saturday when I get to see this lil angel…
Nana can't wait but he is growing way to fast.  8 months this past Friday and all ready taking some steps with his walking toys:/.
Until next time
May you be blessed with stitches,

Snow Day

Well we have gotten the snow and now the winds and plunging temperature!  At least I received a call that our office is closed today yesterday evening so that means it is a stitching day for me.  Sure will be long days the rest of the week though with year end.
I was able to get started on my Forest Friend..
So that is what I will be working on today.  Hopefully get the cabin done and get started on the snow.
Wish I was with this lil man today..
His momma is sick with a cold but luckily daddy is home from work because of the state of emergency also.  So he will be to care for them :).
Well if you weather is as bad as ours is now I hope that you stay home and stitch!
Until next time
May you be blessed with stitches,

Now on to the the next project  tune in next time to seed what I will be starting.
Until next time
