I Believe There Are Angels Among Us -- Completed

I am so happy to get another project completed.  I had to get this one done fast to run it up to the weekend flea market.  There is this really sweat lady that sells some of my projects for me.  The picture is a bad one and it's hard to see all the words but I was in a big hurry.  At least you get some what of an idea of what it looks like. 

I also got some good pictures of the Pronghorn Antelope today on the way to Prescott.  I love pulling over on the side of the road to sit and watch them.

Finished Halloween Moon :)

I was able to finish Halloween Moon today.  The last couple of weeks I have been spending a lot of times at the Dr's trying to figure out why my iron level is so low.  This is a tiny problem that I have had for the last 20 years and I usually just got for Iron IV's.  But since I have moved to AZ,  the Dr's out here move so slow.  Today I finally got to see a hematologist.  I spent 1 hour in the waiting room and then another 40 mins in the exam room just so he can do his own blood work.  Ugh !!!  So while I was waiting,  I pulled out my cross stitch and finally got Halloween Moon done.  

Now I have to figure out what I am going to work on next.  

Last weekend we got about 5 inches of snow.  So DH and I went to the Granite Dells to play around and we had a blast.  Here is a great picture of DH throwing a snowball at me.  LOL 

 We are expecting more snow this weekend.   I can't wait.  I really want to go check out Lynx Lake in Prescott.

Happy Stitching Everyone !!!

Another Finish -- Stars Over Pine

DH and I didn't get to go to Out Of Africa today.  We will try for next Sunday.  So  we watched a ton of movies and I got to stitch a lot.  This is a great pattern.  Totally easy to do.  I did change a couple of things.  I did gold for the leaves and I didn't like 2 of the trees so I left them out.  I don't know how I will finish it,  but I will figure that out later.

Progress on Stars Over Pines

First of all .....  Thank You All so much for all the sweet comments on the Hearts and Birds project.  I tend to be a bit critical of my work.  My neighbor Pat loves it and is going to put it on a tote bag for herself.  So I am really happy about that. 

I was able to sit and stitch for a couple of hours today.  I really like this pattern,  it's been fun to stitch.  I love a nice easy pattern to read.

I don't know how much I can get done tomorrow on it.  DH has errands for me to run for him.  And then Sunday we might go to my favorite place to visit which is called "Out of Africa".  If we get to go,  I will post more about it and some great pictures I hope to get. 

The boys have been really good the last couple of days.  I put up a bird feeder and oh boy they love to watch all the little birds now.

They hardly ever lay next to each other,  so I had to grab my phone fast and take a picture of them.  LOL

Hope everyone has a great weekend and gets lots of stitching in.

Hearts and Birds Completed

Well finally,  it's done.  I still don't like it,  but I am happy its done.  I have no clue how I am going to complete it just yet,  so I packed it in a plastic bag and will figure that out later.

Hearts and Birds

I got up really early today with the help of my deaf cat "Frasier" screaming at the top of his lungs.  He had decided he wanted a treat.  LOL.  Every morning at 10am he gets his heart meds and treats.  But I guess he got his his time mixed up and woke me up at 7am.  What a brat !!!  So I got up anyways and got all my cleaning done for the day.  I put netflix on and watched a movie and got a bunch of stitching done.  I'm not happy with this project at all.  I don't like all the dark colors on the dark background,  but its been fun stitching.  After it's done,  I might send it to a friend of mine and have her make a cute pillow out of it.  Maybe with a light backing it will look better.

I just need to stitch the 2 love birds and I am going to do them in a light pink so they will pop more. Hopefully I can get them done tomorrow or Friday.

Project Updates

I didn't get to stitch to much during the week due to a sore wrist.  I finally went to the Doctors and finally after 2 more days of rest,  my wrist is back to normal.  I think that Dr. will be a keeper. 

I went down to Phx on Friday and got to see Harry.  I also went to see the lady that did the cat cross stitch,  she was thrilled with the frame and the new kit I put together for her.  We sat and stitch for about 40 mins before it was time for donuts in the dinning hall.  LOL .  

I went with Harry to his physical therapy and I still can't get over the difference of how well he is doing.  2 weeks ago,  he needed a lift and 2 male nurses to get him out of bed.  On Friday,  he was sitting up in a wheelchair and he shocked me when he stood up and walked 20 feet with a walker.  I am so proud of him and all the effort he is putting into getting better.  I surprised him with a bag of popcorn and some crackers to munch on till I see him in 2 weeks.  I also bought him 2 new shirts as he does not have any clothes of his own anymore.  His son refused to give me anything and since Harry has not had any new clothes for the last 6 years or so,   I am sure he needs all new stuff anyways.  

I did get in some stitching yesterday and today.  So here are my update pics.  

This is the Horse Silhouette,  maybe this week I will be able to start on the horse itself 

And I got a couple more buildings done on the NY Skyline.

I hope everyone has a great Stitching week,  I know I plan on getting a bunch done but now that I have said it I hope I don't ruin it for myself.  LOL

TUSAL and A New Giveaway by Peggy

My wrist is out of joint and I haven't been able to stitch this week.  I finally broke down and went to the doctors today and had him snap it back into place.  Man I hate that !!!!  So now it's feeling much better but I have to be nice to it for the next day or two.

At least my Jar is looking much much better.  I love all the colors in it.

I have to go down to Phoenix tomorrow,  I am excited to see Harry.  It's been 2 weeks since I have seen him and I hear he is doing much much better.  He has even requested some popcorn,  which is a great sign since he was refusing food just 3 weeks ago.  So I picked him up a big bag and also some of those little fish crackers.

Hopefully I will be able to stitch Saturday and Sunday and get something of an update posted.
