The Stash Faery... and Birthday Memories...


So... here I am another year older with lots of great stash to hoard away in my stitching chest of treasures... :-)


My Faery Birthday Cake...


I had a lovely faery birthday cake and it was really too pretty to eat... but when I got home with it this evening, my dd insisted we cut it immediately! lol And my Mom baked a Butter Pecan Pound Cake for me... I didn't get to take a piccy of that one, as the kids wanted to dig into it right away! lol

And I finally got around to taking piccys of the rest of the birthday stash I've collected over the past couple of weeks... the last two birthday orders should be here sometime next week... :-) My stitching chest will be brimming with treasures... and much akin to a Dragon, I'll be guarding it with a watchful eye... ;-)

I fell asleep at my desk last night in the middle of posting this... lol... Yes, daft I know... I was only going to shut my eyes for a wee moment or two... ;-) I suppose I was just too tired... Anyway, I woke up at 2:30 and was going to finish... however, my bed was so tempting... so I gave up and heeded the hypnotic call of fluffy down and kitty cuddles... Thus, I'm just now finishing this post...

I don't have any special plans for my *Birthday Weekend*... It's my weekend off so, that's a plus... ;-) I'm planning on stitching whilst watching The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and a few other favourite DVD's... The weather is supposed to be lovely... I may try and do a wee bit of gardening will have to check out the flowers at Lowe's and Wal-Mart... Oh, and Wal-Mart has the cutest new Garden Gnome I want to add to my garden collection... ;-) My kids are planning a Birthday Dinner for me on Sunday... Elisha, my eldest DS, wants to grill steaks and chicken... So that should be yummy... I think they have ordered an OTT Lamp for my birthday... ;-) Will have to wait and see... lol

Well, I'm away to catch up on some blogging and emails... and then I'll be blissfully stitching and watching telly the rest of the day...

Heartfelt thanks to you all for visiting and leaving such lovely and inspiring comments... akin to Spring's blossoms to the bee... they are nectar for my Soul...

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


I am thankful for precious moments... the Stash Faery... Birthdays... and dear family and friends...

Buzzing Bee in the Mist...


I've had a lot on my mind of late and seem to flit about from one thing to another much akin to a buzzing bee in a garden of Spring blossoms... Alas, unlike the busy bee... I fear I have accomplished very little of consequence... I've been off for two days, and I can not tell you where the time went... I am so behind with blogging, emails and my stitching... Thinking back on it, the days seem shrouded in mist... and though I did manage to sleep a bit, I am still tired... Nonetheless, I did get in a few stitches on my new WIP's... not much to show thus far... but it's a beginning... ;-)

Geranium House...

Stitched on R & R 30ct Iced Cappuccino

Spring Has Come by The Prairie Schooler

Now that it's nigh midnight, I'm away to my bed... I'll be rising before the chickens and I do hope the day is not as hectic as the last few days were at work... the weekend was mad! And I was totally exhausted by Sunday night and so thankful it was over...

Heartfelt thanks to you all for visiting and leaving such wonderfully kind and lovely thoughts... akin to brilliant stars in a midnight sky, they twinkle through the mist... ever a constant source of joy and inspiration... :-)

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

I am thankful for precious moments... and dear friends...

Spring's Promise...


Spring has finally come... and with it comes the promise of new beginnings... renewal... birth and hope...

As I promised myself, I started my two new projects on the Spring Equinox... Spring Has Come by The Prairie Schooler and Geranium House by Country Cottage Needleworks... I haven't made loads of progress as yet... but they are both taking shape and the colours are gorgeous... I'm loving both of them... I've changed some of the colours on Geranium House... instead of stitching the house in white, I'm using Rosy Glow by Crescent Colours... I'm also stitching the wee flowers in the border and around the house in Rosy Glow instead of white... and the for the white picket fence I'm using DMC Winter White #3865... The white was just too stark for me with these colours... And for Spring Has Come I'm using the Crescent Colour Conversions by Theresa of Shakespeare's Peddler rather than DMC threads... I love the colours! It took me forever to decide on the fabby for both of them... I finally decided on R & R Iced Cappuccino for Geranium House and R & R Cream Brulee for Spring Has Come... And yes, both fabrics are named after coffees... lol It would seem fabric named after coffee flavours are some of my favourite colours! ;-) I don't have piccys of my progress yet... hopefully tomorrow night I'll get to that as I'm off Monday and Tuesday and don't have to worry about getting to bed at a half decent hour... which is probably going to be nigh midnight tonight at the rate I'm going anyway... I've got so much catching up to do... :-)

So without further ado... here are photos of my new projects... the stash for them arrived over the last couple of weeks... all of which is part of my early birthday stash pressies for myself... from myself... ;-)

Heartfelt thanks to all of you for visiting and leaving such kind and lovely thoughts... like the sun's rays dancing on an ocean of endless blue they are ever a constant source of hope, encouragement and inspiration to me...

Until next time... Love in stitches...

I am thankful for precious moments... new stitching projects... the blessings of friends... Spring... and dawn at sea...

Circle of Friends...


I found this on my friends Juls ... Carolyn and Jamie's blogs... Please copy the verse and photo for your blog and carry on the chain of friendship! Leave a comment so we can all follow the chain...

Holding Hands


This picture shows a line of little girls holding hands facing the immensity of ocean waves. Alone they might be washed away, but together they stand strong. Thank you for holding my hand somewhere along the way when I was facing a wave of my own. I hope you will reach for my hand when your own wave threatens.



All of us girls...
Old and young... Near and far...
Hold special memories of good times we've shared.
We've had our share of hard times when our friends were there to make us feel better.
We've shared...
our hearts...
our time...
our secrets...
our fears...
our hopes...
and our dreams...
Let us never break the chain of friends!

I am thankful for precious moments... precious memories and precious friends...

I'm late... I'm late...


For a very important date... with my bed that is! ;-) I can remember when I was a kid and saw Alice In Wonderland for the first time and was so enthralled with the White Rabbit... I thought he was the most amazing creature! I've since wondered if he somehow implanted a subliminal message that lies buried somewhere deep in my subconscious... for it never fails that I am late for something, somewhere, sometime... if not all the time! lol... Not intentionally mind you, no, it is never planned, as I do run around willy-nilly much like the Rabbit on his mad dash through the looking glass into Wonderland...and yes, I am sure it must be a comical site to behold... much akin to the Mad Hatter's Tea Party... Yet no matter how I may dash about... or plan ahead... it never fails I end up racing to my destination... clock/watch in hand... muttering *I'm late, I'm late* to myself along the way... Alas...only to end up racing through the door in the nick of time... or not! ;-)

And to add to my certainty that it truly must be my fate or destiny... is the memory of a picture my Mother had hanging in her kitchen when I was a teenager... It was a Lady Rabbit dressed in a frilly pink apron bustling about in her sweet country kitchen, broom in hand... dishes piled willy-nilly, et cetera... and printed on the picture were the words... *The hurrier I go the behinder I get*... I have since thought of this saying many, many times... amazed at how true it is for me. Now my Mother, mind you, is a stickler for punctuality... and she never has understood why I can not seem to accomplish this simple feat... hmmm... curiouser and curiouser...

Starting Easter Avenue brought all of this to the fore... and now that I think about it... I have quite a lot of rabbit charts in my stash... though this will be the first one I have stitched for myself... Oh, which reminds me... I fell in love with La-D-Da's In the Forest when it was released at Nashville... The stash faery dropped the chart and fabby off last week.... I'm just waiting on the Needlepoint Silks... :-) I am so in love with this design... My first two thoughts when I saw it of course were the White Rabbit from AIW ... as well as Harvey from the Jimmy Stewart film... Oh, I love that film... I always have... Hmmmm I wonder why? I also have on order The Bunny Parade by The Workbasket and Easter Parade by BlackBird Designs ... {You can see a lovely WIP of this one on Vonna's blog...} and there is no telling how many other bunny charts I have in my stash... If I see one I love, it goes on my Wish List or immediately into my collection... And the weird thing about it is that it really didn't dawn on me that I was slowly building a collection of bunny related charts until the other day when my order came and I sat drooling over In The Forest and Easter Avenue... Hmmmm... curiouser and curiouser... this could be getting rather serious... ;-)

Rabbits seem to have followed me throughout my life in some form or fashion... my eldest son's fave books as a child were Alice In Wonderland, The Velveteen Rabbit and Home for a Bunny {as well as Snow White... no rabbits there tho'}... I can't tell you how many times I read them to him, as he never grew tired of hearing the stories... many is the time I'd finish Home for a Bunny and he'd beg me to read it again... one more time, Momma... please, one more time... My youngest son's favourite cartoon throughout child-hood and to this day, is Bugs Bunny... and my daughter has begged me for years to buy some bunnies for pets... but with all of our cats... I'd so hate to traumatise the wee darlings... thus I have resisted the temptation...

Oh, my... but I have rambled yet again... and must now hurry to my bed as it's midnight and my alarm will start chiming at 4:00 AM for work... So without further ado... my progress on Easter Avenue... it's not much, but I am so loving it! :-)


Thank you all for visiting... Your kind and lovely thoughts are ever rays of sunshine filtering through the mist...

Until next time... Love in stitches...

I am thankful for precious moments and precious memories... and bunnies... mythical or otherwise... for who's to say what is real?

The Stash Faery strikes again...

Wooooo Hoooo.... two new beginnings for me! I started The Chocolate Shoppe by Little House Needleworks and Easter Avenue by Glendon Place on Wednesday... I haven't had a chance to stitch a lot on them yet... but I have started and that's a beginning... ;-) I had to work Wednesday and Thursday, and it was fairly hectic both days... I just don't understand why folks can't live in peace... Oh well, suffice it to say, I didn't have a lot of stitching time... Today, I had to go grocery shopping, and had a few errands to run and then there was housework.... mind you I didn't do too much of that! lol Just some laundry and tidyed up a wee bit here and there... and it was my dear daughter, Brandy's birthday... :-) So, needless to say, I haven't so much as picked up my needle! Not to fret as tomorrow is another day... and I have both it and Sunday free... So, can you guess how I'll be spending the rest of my weekend off? ;-)

The Stash Faery dropped off the stash for my two new projects last week... along with some other early birthday stash of which I will share piccys in a couple of days... I'm still waiting on some fabby to go with a couple of projects... I just love keeping you all in suspense! ;-)



The Chocolate Shoppe by Little House Needleworks...

Vintage Country Mocha Cashel with DMC Threads

and Antique Gold Kreinik #4 Braid


LHN The Chocolate Shoppe... Started 13th March 2007

Easter Avenue by Glendon Place...

Moonglow Cashel Picture This Plus Linen

Weeks Dye Works and DMC Threads...

I'm loving working on both of these... I didn't have time to sitch on Easter Avenue at all on Thursday... so will show a progress piccy of it tomorrow as I only got a few stitches in on it on Wednesday... I'm loving both of these! The fabby is gorgeous and the colours in both designs are so lovely... Easter Avenue is so Springy and I must say, it's such a cheerful stitch! :-)

Sally and Sue I wish you had the time to stitch CCN's Geranium House with me... You just may be tempted once you see it... ;-) I can't believe I'm starting so many new projects... hehehe And I'm also going to start Spring Has Come by The Prairie Schooler this Wednesday! lol Yes, daft I know!

Well, I guess I should go for now... I haven't been sleeping well the last several weeks and it's beginning to take it's toll ... last night I finally slept about 7 hours... but Tuesday and Wednesday I only slept a total of five hours for both nights! Needless to say, I was exhausted... and those long 12 hour work days seemed to drag on forever... Yet, as tired as I was, I just could not go to sleep... Oh well, I'm away to my bed now and hopefully will have a nice long and restful sleep so I can catch up with my stitching and blogging tomorrow and Sunday! :-)

Thanks for all the tips on uploading piccys... I'm going to try uploading from photobucket or webshots and see what happens! lol Hopefully, it will work... And thank you all for visiting... Your kind and lovely thoughts bring sunbeams of happiness to my days...

***Edited to add... Well, uploading the piccys did not work... sigh... I tried uploading them from my PC into my Wish List blog... and it worked just fine... but when I uploaded them here it did not work at all! I just don't get it! I'll try again tomorrow as I'm fed up just now and away to my bed....***

***Edited again to add... Okay, so I had an idea and could not rest until I tried it... I went back to my Wish List blog and rearranged the photos and it seems if you click and drag your photos to a different spot in your post once you've downloaded them the automatic link in blogger will not work... Hmmmm so how the bloody heck does one go about beating this? I know you don't have to have all your photos at the top of your post... Good grief, I've seen blogs with clickable photos that showed full size and they were not all at the top of the post! I tried uploading from photobucket... but the fabric in the smaller size piccy in the post looked distorted... That's it! I am away to my bed this time!***

***Yes, I know I am completely daft! I just had to come back and link the piccys I uploaded from my PC to the piccys I had uploaded in photobucket... that will have to do.... Woooo Hooo I tested it and that seems to work just fine! :-) This time I really am away to my bed... nite-nite all...***

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

I am thankful for precious moments... starting new projects and the Stash Faery...

A Wee Snoopy Happy Dance... :-)

Woooo Hoooo!!! :-) Oh, Joy... Rapture... Finally it is finished... I don't know why, but it seems to have taken me forever to stitch this... Well, I guess I do know why... I just have not been stitching as much as I usually do, and hopefully, that has passed 'cause I am anxious to start The Chocolate Shoppe by LHN and Easter Avenue by Glendon Place... and I must get back to New Snow as well... :-) Oh, my... so many projects... so little time!


Winter Ornament by The Prairie Schooler
Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue 2006
Stitched on 32ct Lambswool with DMC Threads

Thanks for signing up for my PIF, Michele... I'll email you as I need your snail mail addy and likes and dislikes, et cetera... :-)

Thanks for asking the fifth question, Monique... :-) And dear Juls... please don't fret about asking me four questions... That's perfectly alright, my dear! :-) I'll try and get to the question thingy in the next day or two... And in the interim, if anyone would like to ask any more questions... may as well, go ahead now! lol

Sue, I plan on starting The Chocolate Shoppe tomorrow... ;-) Hopefully, I'll catch up with the rest of you all soon... Yours and Sally's is looking so lovely... I'm also going to start Easter Avenue tomorrow... lol Yes, I know... Starting two new projects in one day??? What can I say... I'm feeling a wee bit adventurous! ;-) I'm also thinking of stitching CCN's Geranium House on Vintage Autumn Blush :-) Or perhaps Vintage Country Mocha... I haven't made up my mind yet... My chart and threads should be here tomorrow so, I'll have to do a floss toss and try and make a decision... which is not my strong point, mind you! lol I'll be starting it on the Spring Equinox with the LHN/CCN group... I imagine you are as well... :-) Sally, will you be stitching this one as well?

Well, I'm off to bed soon... I did not get as much accomplished while I was off as I intended... tsk... tsk... tsk... the best laid plans of mice and women... ;-) I did manage to watch some movies... The Prestige is fabulous... I've watched it three times in the past two days! lol And I also watched Merlin's Apprentice... loved that one as well! And I read some on Eldest... Sadly, I have not had as much reading time as I would like and I really want to finish this one soon... :-)

Oh, and before I forget... Could someone please explain to me how to fix the link on the piccys I upload into my posts so that they will be the full size photo... I've tried everything I can think of... I went into the Edit HTML and copied the URL and pasted it as the link for the piccy... but it refuses to cooperate... when you click on the photo it just goes to a page with another photo the same size as the one in my blog... Argghhhh

Thank you all for visiting... Your kind and lovely thoughts are an inspiration and bring sunshine to my days... :-)

Tootles for now... Love In Stitches...

I am thankful for precious moments... snoopy happy dances and new beginnings...

Wherefore art thou my Happy Dance...


Thank you all for thinking of me... :-) Your kind and loving words, like golden rays of sunshine, filter through the gloomy clouds and brighten my days...

I'm so behind with blogging, emails and my stitching... I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever catch up! I finished my three day weekend today and I'm off tomorrow and Tuesday! Wooo Hoooo!!! So, maybe I can begin to make some progress with catching up! Much to my dismay, I still have not finished my Prairie Schooler Winter Ornament... however, I did scan it tonight so I could show you all my *progress*... ;-) I wasn't going to stitch in the background on the sky, however once I had stitched the falling snowflakes... I didn't like the look of it without the sky... so, I decided to go ahead and stitch it. I really wish I had chosen a darker fabby... Alas, it will have to do as is... I'm stitching it on 32ct Lambswool Linen with DMC threads... Hopefully, I will finish it tomorrow so I can move on to something else. :-)



On another note... I still have one slot open on my PIF's... If anyone is interested, please email me... See Post Pay If Forward for further info...


Also, Juls has asked four of the five questions on my Five Question thingy... See The Plot Thickens Post... So if anyone wants to ask the fifth question, please fire away... ;-)

I'm going to try and catch up with everyone's blog in the next couple of days... and hopefully, I'll be feeling much better and have some new stitching progress piccys... and a Snoopy Happy Dance to boot... :-) I feel like I'm forgetting something... but I can not think what it is at the moment... Oh well, perhaps it will come to me tomorrow and I'll jot it down, so I won't forget it again... lol

Thank you all for visiting... your kind and loving thoughts bring sunshine and smiles to my days... :-)

Tootles for now... Love in Stitches...

I am thankful for precious moments... dear friends and days off...

Cherished Gifts...


I'm sorry I have been MIA the last few days... and thank you all for asking about me and all the well wishes and kind thoughts... they really help brighten my days! :-) I haven't been feeling well the last couple of weeks and I've been so tired... And I have been a wee bit blue of late... I so apprecaite all your lovely, kind thoughts... they make me smile and help chase aways the shadows... I am truly blessed to have such lovely friends... I will persevere and as Churchill would say... KBO... *Keep Buggering On* LOL

Now on to happier thoughts... Woooo Hoooo!!! I got the loveliest surprise in the Post yesterday!!! :-) My PIF from Silver Thistle arrived!!! :-) She has truly spoilt me with all the lovely goodies she sent and her stitching is absolutely gorgeous!!! She stitched a lovely scissor fob and also sent me a pair of stork scissors... I love collecting scissors and fobs so that was just perfect!!! And she sent me Red Dragon Bookmark by Dracolair Creations which was on my Wish List! I love that dragon design and now I can stitch him at last! I'm already trying to decide which fabby to stitch him on! ;-) And she also sent a heavenly scented Tulip sachet and WDW threads... Now you see why I am truly spoilt! lol Thanks so much Silver Thistle ... Big {{{Hugs}}} to you, Sweetie!!!

I've taken a few piccys of all my goodies with my new digital camera I bought for myself as an early birthday pressie... You should have seen me fiddling with it and trying to get it just so... lol I just hope I did them justice...


I am truly spoilt with all these lovely goodies... You can see a close up below of the lovely scissor fob and stork scissors Silver Thistle sent me... the piccy is a wee bit bright... I'm still fiddling with my camera... Hopefully, I'll get it right soon enough! :-)

I am truly blessed to have such lovely friends... Thanks again Silver Thistle for your thoughtfullness and for spoiling me so! :-)


So, you've all been asking about my hair appointment last week... Well, suffice it to say after five and a half hours at the Salon, I should be pleased! I like the new do fairly well... she didn't cut too much off, as I like it a wee bit longish... she just cut some more layers and some whispy bangs... or fringe... which is how I used to wear it all the time. And the colour is great!!! A brilliant deep red with a couple of different lighter red streaks mingled in.... At least I can't see the silver now! lol

I suppose I should head off to my bed as it's after midnight and I've got to get up at 4:00 in the morning as I'm back to work now... I went back on Monday, much to my dismay and worked my two days then was off yesterday and today... and now it's my three day weekend... So, I won't be off again until Monday... Alas, I have accomplished next to nothing... Still have not finished my Winter Ornament by PS... I don't know what is wrong with me... Oh well, I will be finished with that ornie tomorrow... and on to The Chocolate Shoppe and New Snow... So, if I don't have a finished piccy of Winter Ornament posted on here by Saturday... y'all will have to start asking me why? ;-)

Tootles for now... Love In Stitches...

I am thankful for precious moments and dear friends...

SBQ... Smoking Needles and Frogs... ;-)

I'm a wee bit behind on my Stitching Bloggers Questions... I know... I really must try and keep up with things... ;-)

Anyway... Last week's SBQ was suggested by Danielle ...

Do you find yourself stitching faster when you are getting to the end of a design?

Hmmmm... Yes, I am sure I do... though at times it seems like I'm just never going to finish... lol... I do try and stitch faster or rather I should say I stitch more 'cause I am so anxious to see the finished piece... and excited about starting something new. ;-)

The permalink to this question may be found here: Stitched With Love and Cat Hair ...

This week's SBQ is:

Do you use your needle, a seam ripper, or something else when you have to frog stitches? Why do you use the method that you do?

Most of the time I use my needle to rip the stitches out... I have used a seam ripper on occassion... but I don't like the way it pulls the linen... If I absolutely must, I will use my wee scissors to cut some of the threads, but I am always extra careful... I use my needle because I don't want to cut the linen or pull any of the other stitches...

The permalink to this question may be found here: Stitched With Love and Cat Hair ...

Thank you all for stopping by... your kind and lovely thoughts brighten my days...

Until Next Time... Love In Stitches..

I am thankful for frogless stitching and smoking needles...

The Plot Thickens...


Juls and Cheryl tagged me last week sometime... Yes, I know, I procrastinate... ;-)
Here are the rules as they explain them in their blogs...

Five Questions and Five Things...
For the first part... Five Questions: My dear readers may ask me five questions -- either in comments or feel free to email them if you'd prefer. I'll answer them in my blog as soon as time allows.

For the second part: five things about me: Here are the rules:
1 Get Tagged
2 List five things that have not been revealed about myself in my blog
3 Tag five others...

So... hmmmm Five things I have not revealed about myself in my blog... Where do I begin?

1... I love Star Trek! LOL The Original Series... and Spock is my fave character on the show... also love ST; The Next Generation, and Voyager... Deep Space Nine is cool as well... I do not particularly care for the newest one... Enterprise... So there you have it... I am a Trekkie... or Trekker as some folks prefer... I love most Sci-Fi .... And I absolutely Love Star Wars! Anakin Skywalker {aka Darth Vadar} and Padme.... sigh... Such a tragic love story... Oh, and I cannot leave out my great love of Fantasy Films... The Lord of the Rings Trilogy being my all time fave... I also love films that take place in days of yore... i.e. anything before the 20th century... or anything based on ancient myth and lore... However, there are some 20th century based films I adore... I suppose it depends on the plot, setting et cetera... And I never can resist a great Mystery... ;-)

2... Pizza is one of my fave foods... veggie lovers or cheese lovers... and I prefer Deep Dish 'cause I love bread! lol I also love Honey... I could eat honey all day... It's especially delicious on biscuits or homemade bread... Yummy! And it makes an ever so Divine midnight snack! ;-) When I was expecting Brandy, I ate about a quart jar of honey every two weeks! lol Needless to say, she has always had a sweet tooth, but amazingly enough, she does not like honey... hmmm... and for the life of me, I cannot fathom why... ;-) Oh, and I love coffee... I know I've already mentioned my love of the savoury dark brew, however, I just couldn't resist... Which reminds me... speaking of pregnancies and food, I may as well throw in this tid-bit about coffee... I always knew very early along that I was *in the family way* ... I mean early on... before I was *late* so to speak... ;-) I didn't need one of the *Home Pregnancy Test* thingies as it never failed but when I strolled into the kitchen and the smell of freshly brewed java turned my stomach, I knew without a doubt what ailed me! Oh Horrors! I could not drink coffee for nine months... Talk about major caffeine withdrawal! lol


3... I'm sitting here listening to James Blunt... racking my brain trying to think of something about myself that won't bore you to tears... Hmmmm well, I always wanted to write... I have a couple of unfinished novels stashed away in my desk drawer, perhaps if my Muse blesses me with her presence yet again I'll heed her whispers... only time will tell... And I wrote book reviews for a magazine about 10 years ... needless to say I love to read which I daresay I have already mentioned... ;-) Oh, yes and I was a journalist at the local newspaper for a wee while before I moved to Scotland...

4... And I don't think I've mentioned I lived in Scotland for 2 years... long story of which I shall not go into at this time... Since I was a little girl I always dreamed of living in Scotland and I knew I would live there one day in this lifetime... Needless to say, whenever I dared share this dream with my friends, et cetera they thought it was quite a lark... assuming I was away with the faeries yet again... Suffice it to say... for a wee while, I lived the dream... and it is a beautiful country... everything I always knew it would be and if circumstances had been different... who knows? I guess I was too old for such a change... my roots entangled far too deep here in the South... and I could not continue to live 6000 miles away from my kids! It was breaking my heart...

5... Ahhhh... the plot thickens... Speaking of hearts... I do not think I mentioned I have three children... My eldest son, Elisha is 26... My daughter, Brandy will be 24 this month and my youngest son, Wee Jamie is 21...

I'm sorry, I tend to ramble... as you can see from my posts above... and if you're read my blog before... I'm sure you've probably long since deduced that fact... lol It would appear I have confused *things* with *themes*... as almost all of my *things* turned into rambling *themes* about me... I do applaud your loyalty and patience if you are still reading... :-)

***Edited Sunday Morning... Fiddle dee dee... How could I be so absent minded??? I forgot to tag five people... So, let me do it now, lest I forget why I am editing this post... Heidi ... Paula ...Carolyn ... Sue ... and Sue ... I don't think any of you have been tagged yet... ;-) Hopefully, I haven't forgotten anything else... I await your five questions and promise to answer as best I can...***

Thank you all for your get well wishes... :-) You are all so sweet and your kind and thoughtful words help brighten my days... I've been a wee bit down and just not myself for awhile... my headache is still coming and going... and I haven't stitched much at all this week... Hopefully, I'll have a finish to show you all tomorrow. :-)

Until next time... Love in stitches...

I am thankful for precious moments... my children and my friends...
