Chocolate Stitches... Blossoms Fair and Kitty Cuddles...


I haven't done a lot of stitching this week... had too much on my mind and I have had a lot of bother with my Fibro and RA... However, I did manage a wee bit of progress on Ye Olde Chocolate Shoppe by LHN...

Ye Olde Chocolate Shoppe...
by Little House Needleworks
Stitched on Vintage Country Mocha Cashel Linen
with DMC Threads


I took a few piccys of my azaleas and my dd, Brandy the other day... I love the beautiful pink blossoms... they are just gorgeous! And she is most precious to me...


My dear daughter Brandy...

Gandalf the Grey and Shelley...



This is the first time Gandalf and Shelley have ever laid this close to one another... peacefully... I couldn't believe it when I walked in and saw them on the sofa together... They are both my sweet babies and they are terribly jealous of me... They sleep with me at night, but on opposite sides of the bed and sometimes they try and run each other off the bed... Maybe this is a sign they have finally decided to be friends... :-)

I'm away to read in my bed for awhile... it's my three day weekend to work and I am already tired and it's only the first day... I stitched a wee bit today on Easter Avenue... Hopefully, I'll have some time for a few more stitches tomorrow... I'm sorry this is such a short post... I will catch up on my blogging over the next few days... I need to see what you all are up to and what you're stitching... :-)

My Deepest Heartfelt thanks to all of you for visiting and leaving such lovely and kind Birthday Wishes and encouragement... Akin to a roaring fire in the hearth... they fill my heart and soul with warmth, comfort and cheer...

Until next time... Love in Stitches...



I am thankful for precious moments... my dear daughter Brandy... my furbabies... and dear friends...

Happy Easter Lizzy! Nice progress on Chocolate Shoppe, the colors are so nice on that fabric. I hope you enjoy stitching it as much as I did. As to what I'm going to stitch next, still haven't decided, so I picked Dogs of Duckport back up for a bit. I did get Easter Ave, so have the pattern. However, still waiting on fabric from Theresa, so if I go with that one it will be a while yet. I do have the stuff for Geranium House, but I also have Kitty and Doggy Sampler ready to go, decisions, decisions.

Beautiful pictures of your daughter, and your kitties. I can see why you'd be proud of all of them.

Good luck on your three day work week, I hope you get through it without being to drained. Hopefully the Fibro and RA settle done soon so that you feel better. Looking forward to seeing an update of Easter Ave, love the blue bunny. :)
