All righty now...

This is the stash I bought last weekend, it not much just because I was looking for a few certain things that I couldn't find. Like Scary Carrie by Lavender Wings and Monster March by Glendon Place. I also want to order Scream House by Just Nan. So I am saving my money for those.

The fabby is 32 ct Iced Cappuccino, a very large piece and a piece of BOAF 32 ct Sparrow, just because it is discountinued and it was there
BBD Thank You, Sarah Tobias and BBD Merry Christmas Ella Vaughn and a few needed GAST

Here we are on the bike. The background is that of Dan's mom's property, a beautiful pond, the house is in front of the bike. She had a 4th cookout, so we stopped by for a short time.

I was feeling so down about my HAED. The next day I received a RAK from Joanne The perfect pick-me-up. She saw I had There's No Place Like Home on my wish list for trades and was so generous to sent it to me, how awesome is that? She even threw in a VC silk and a roll of ribbon. Thank You so much

As for actual stitching I have been trying to stitch on Good Things, so hopefully a finish soon. A little on ATS, but nothing to post about, the same with Emerald Mermaid. And this I keep forgetting to take a pic of My Needle's Work by LHN. I have not a clue what the fabric is, just a piece waiting to be used.

My wrist is feeling much better with the naproxen, but i cant take that forever. And yes I can still stitch, the only thing that would stop me from reaching for the needle is blindness. I will try to pick up my HAED again soon. Thanks for all the support on it and the Birthday wishes. I try not to make a big deal out of becuz I need no more of them. I have had too many already, lol.

I want to Congratulate all the new mommys-to-be, seems like they are popping up all over, must had been a cold winter, lol

We have been so busy with Kellie's baseball games. I did have a photo of her pitching, but it vanished into thin air.

I will leave you with another proud photo. Brianna (grandbaby). Heather had this taken the other day for her first birthday. This is my favorite one Happy Stitching!!

Oh Ranae - that is the most stunning picture of Brianna. I had a photo like that of Drew and I have had it made into a cross stitch chart to do one day. You might want to think of that. Hasn't she grown into the most beautiful healthy little girl!!!!
Beatrice and I just purchased HAED's and we are rather nervous about starting them. They are our 10 year projects LOL. Just hang in there. I understand it takes a long time before you see anything. Your new stash looks like fun.

Nice stash, and I like the ones you have on your to get list as well, especially Monster March. Glad that you got a RAK to help lift your spirits over the HAED, what perfect timing. Fun picture of Kellie at the game, and what a gorgeous picture of Brianna, she's adorable.

Looks like it's been a busy week for you - your granddaughter is adorable.

Julie said...

Awww look at those gorgeous eyes on your little princess, she's adorable. Nice stash purchase and RAK gift. Lovely pic of you both on the bike too and of Kellie too.

Hope you are on the up!

That picture of Brianna is gorgeous, such a cute little girl. Nice stash, I am glad that the RAK arrived and that it cheered you up. {{{HUGS}}}

Lovely new stash and your project is coming along nicely. Hopefully the Naproxen will give things in your wrist to calm down and start healing. I know I had to be on it when I tore the ligaments in my foot!

Suzanne said...

Your grand daughter is so cute! Great stash you purchased, I love the fabric colours. It's always nice to receive a RAK.

Hazel said...

Oh oh I have just bought the sarah Tobias chart too. Isn't it wonderful?? You look great on the Harley. What an amazing bike. Sorry you got upset over the HAED. I have done a couple and they really are stunning. Sometimes you just have to go with it and believe it will turn out okay as they always seem to do. Go on the forum for encouragement. Brianna looks amazing. I can't believe it has been a year already. xx

YUM-MY! Nice stashing Ranae. That's pretty good for not finding what you were initially going for ;o)

Great picture of you and DH!

Ah, you've been holding out on us with another start. That fabric is lovely though. You don't have any idea?

That was very sweet of Joanne :o) I'm sure she felt your pain. You'll get back to it on your own time I'm sure.

Your GD is ADORABLE! What a cutie :o)
