I'd like to take a moment to wish all my friends that celebrate tomorrow

Please remember to be kind to friends and family this holiday season. It is so easy to be nice to strangers and treat family like enemies.

Sock Monkey

Happy almost weekend!!
I finished the Sock Monkey ornament from the JCS 2010 issue

I knew when I seen it, I had to stitch it for my mom.
My hometown is Rockford, thats where the sock monkey was invented. My mom use to make the monkey out of the Rockford socks.

Here is progress on my Prairie Schooler Band Samplers

Right now I couldn't be happier about my ornament donation to the breast cancer silent auction. If you go to the website

for viewing you can find mine on newsletter #2. My auction number is 170.

I am so happy it already has a current bid of 60.00, can you believe it???

I can't!!! I would have be happy with 25.00 donation. So you see how excited this makes me.

You can check out some of the donations that were made in care of Cathey on this special blog she set up or even join for next year, hint! hint!

I am already looking forward to next years project.

Weeeeeeeeeee!!!! have a super duper weekend all

Happy Sunny Tuesday, here in N. Illinois

Does eveyone in the world get these?
well known weeds like we do in the States

They start out as a pretty yellow flower
they go to seed

then you blow and make a wish

Do you know where I am going with this?

Woohoo!!! It's finished and I love it

Dandy Dreams by Silver Creek Samplings

28ct cream cashel w/DMC

I frogged the year once, don't know what the heck I was thinking, because it is 2010 right?!

I guess I am use to stitching older charts and have the habit of stitching the current year

I started the sock monkey from the JCS ornament issue, so hopefully I will have another finish to share with you.

Thanks for visiting my neck of the weeds (ooops! excuse me, woods)

Happy stitching!!!!!

Me and You

Happy November 1st

Me & You Sampler by Midsummer Night Designs
stitched on 32 ct Sand w/DMC
The colors are so much richer, I must have taken a million snaps
I did change some of the colors around and made the house into a log cabin
I think this will be finshed as a pillow

I will leave you with photo's of last night Halloween 2010

Grandson Dalton slept right through it, lol

Thanks for stopping by, I promise to get caught up on blog reading and commenting just as soon as we get the Verizon MiFi shipped here and set up. This dial-up sucks
Happy Stitching!!!!
