Feburary WIPocalypse & TUSAL


This year has not started off the best for my family.  I sure hope when spring arrives things will change. 

I have not had hardly anytime to stitch.  I did finish All White 

My big jar that I had such hopes for is still very empty.  

Life has been so busy that I can't seem to find time to stitch. 
Here's to a better week and a better month

WIPocalypse & TUSAL

It feels like such a long time since I have posted last.  

As always things are busy here.  I somehow always find things to fill up my days and weeks.

As you can tell,  I have not had much time to stitch.  I think I only added a few threads since last month.

I did start another project that I got off of  With all that's been going on around here,  it been hard to just sit down and concentrate so this little project has been perfect for me. 

Our Frasier had an ultra sounds yesterday.  They found an enlarged lymph node and some fluid in his intestines.  It still really doesn't tell them what he has but it does tell them he is having some issues.  I will find out next week what needs to be done next or what other tests do they need to run on him.  Meanwhile he needs a few days to relax since all the stress is really getting to him.   

Here he is totally zonked out.  If you look close you can see his shaved belly. 

Take care and Happy Stitching

January - WIPocalypse & TUSAL

I only have a few projects that I am working on right now.  This month I have have worked on one that for some reason is killing me.  It's really an easy  pattern to do,  but I keep messing it up.  I will get this done if it kills me.  LOL 

For my TUSAL,  I went back to Ross to see if I could find another cool Jar for all my scraps and I found another clear jar with a cobalt blue lid.  It's a bigger jar and  I totally grabbed it.  I doubt I will fill it up,  it's pretty big,  but it's a perfect jar for me. I had to put it next to last years tusal.

Meanwhile.  Our Frasier could use some good vibes.  On Nov. 8th,  I brought Frasier in to have his teeth cleaned.  Since then he has been having some intestinal issues.  He normally has this with any antibiotics but that clears itself up in a couple of weeks.  This has been going on way to long.  Twice I have had to bring him in for fluids due to dehydration.  We have done some blood tests and those are all normal.  We have been to  4 different Doctors and right now they are saying that Frasier either has IBD or Lymphoma.  We are going to try some steroids and if he doesn't clear up this week,  then he will have to be tested for Lymphoma.  So if you can,  please send Frasier some good vibes.  Hopefully his new meds will work this week...
I hope everyone has a great stitching week.  It's been a busy day so for here.  I have all my coupons together for shopping tonight.  Tomorrow I am volunteering with Horses with H.E.A.R.T. which takes most of the day and so maybe later this week I can sit down and stitch a bit.

Happy Stitching E1

Happy New Year

Crafty Moo is having a epic give away.    Check it out HERE
This is one you don't want to miss...  Good Luck to everyone but I would really love to win this one.  LOL

I hope everyone had a great and safe New Year.  Hubby and I stayed in and watched some shows and played on pogo. 

I started working for Roger (Hubby) part time helping him out with his job and that is really taking a lot of time away from my stitching.  Hopefully I can figure out how to make more time to stitch. 

Maybe this week I will have a picture of some progress I have made.

Happy Stitching

TUSAL for December

This year went by super fast.  It had a lot of ups and downs,  but the ups were great and made up for the downs. 

For Christmas my DH let me get a Pressure Canner.  Food storage has become very important to me.  2 years ago we were so broke that all we could afford to eat was either potatoes or rice.  So I took up couponing and started stocking up for those lean times.  Also having to eat gluten free is totally expensive,  so now I will be able to make and can gluten free foods.  

I can't wait to see all the posts and wonderful gifts everyone got....

So here is a picture of my TUSAL for December,  I wonder who is going to win the big prize ??? 

I hope every has a great Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year !!!!

I Finally Finished Townsend's Warbler

Finally Finally,  I have another finish.  

Townsend Warbler.

This was a really hard project for me.  I am not used to all the colors.  But I think it was worth all the frogging I had to do on it.  I think this one is worth framing.... 

Don't forget,  If you would like a Christmas card,  Please email me at and I will get it out right away. 

Hope you all have a great stitching weekend !!!!
