lots of stitching going on

Well it seems like I missed a week of posting:( but I have been doing lots of stitching....
I got the birth sampler finished up........

This is off to get framed tomorrow.  I am really pleased on how it turned out.  I then got started on a Shepard bush stocking...
I really want to do one for every one.  This is going to be Roberts's stocking from the line.  I plan on doing it for each of the guys in the family. I haven't decided on the one for the ladies in the family.

Last Thursday I had a big birthday 50!  Yikes!
It was a good time spent the evening with DH, DD and DSIL out to eat.  The evening before spent with my Stitch Witch friend chatting and stitching.  I received some lovely gifts and gift cards from Bath & Body works and the local yarn shop this is what I picked up....

That bubble bath is wonderful :) and the yarn is lovely.  I did start the project with the Noro and interlock scarf...
It is really fun to stitch.
Yesterday I ended the fun at the DS and DDIL celebrating my birthday and fathers day...

Of course Nana & Papa got some play time in.
Until next time 
May you be blessed with stitches,

Welcome summer sunshine and stitching

Happy Memorial Day!  The beginning of summer as they say.  We spent a lovely time with our DS, DDIL, DD, DSIL and of course our sweet lil man yesterday.

He enjoyed some pool time. Then papa got the sand for his sandbox that we got him for his bday. Fun in the sun, laughter and good food. What a wonderful day :).

On the stitching front I have been stitching along on the birth sampler...
 This is where I was at as of Friday.
Then as of last night.  I can't wait to see the completed piece.
Today it will be laundry and stitching for the most part.
Thank you to all our Veterans and their families.
Until next time 
May you be blessed with stitches,

Once again

Well I have been reminded that I have been lack in updating my blog.  So I promise to try to do better.  On the stitching front I had a major accident with Frosty friends with a spill that could not be corrected so had to through in the towel.  Even though I enjoyed doing it I don't think I will restart it. I made a bday present for the DIL but think I will wait to post once I have it finished. So now back to stitching on the birth sampler for the lil man.  Even though yesterday we celebrated his 1st Birthday...

It is hard to believe that it was a year ago I watched this lil angel come into the world...
He sure makes his papa and nana proud.!

Until next time
May you be blessed with stitches

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
