If this didn't kill me...

I don't think any block from the Hawk Run Hollow series will, hehe

It seems like I put 10 hours a day stitching for like 3 days straight.

Happy Stitching!!!!

Miss Mary Mack

Happy Saturday!!!

I went to last Sunday to see the gals and pick up my Miss Mary Mack by La D Da. I love it. Cathy did a fabulous job framing it. I took two more to be framed, I'm so excited to get them back.

A few things were purchased...

Brenda surprised with a fantastic LHN ornament.

I was over the moon with it. I so admire Brenda's stitching and now to cherish something she made is outta this world, Thank You! my dear friend

I finially got around this week to frame a Primitive Needle Design, thats been stitched for quite awhile now.

I stitched and finished this little gem, Little By Little titled "Sleigh Bird"

I snapped this photo of my grandson and thought it was cute enough to share
Happy Stitching !!

I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving Day with friends and family

Happy Tuesday Morning!!!

Let's start with the old WIP, shall we??!!

"Dashing" by Birds of a Feather, stitching on 32ct iced cappucino, I think
I put this one away because I don't feel like filling in the rest of the reindeer that I have already started. I love the kids that are behind Santa, too cute!! I filled in his face last night, so know he's watching me to get it finished no less

Next up is The Prairie Schooler started this past weekend

" A Farmer's Almanac"

This is the one I had you vote on with BBD Winter Wonderland. That one is finish so I thought it appropriate to start the PS

I'm not really sure what I want to stitch on today/tonite, that's a first, lol

Have a great work week

Thanks for visiting, ALL the comments and emails are much appreciated

P.S. Don't forget to check out my give-away on the last post

If there is one flaw in women...

Women have strengths that amaze men....

They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in.. They stand up to injustice.

They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a
better solution.

They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get

They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding.

Their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a
family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no
strength left.

They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they
care about you.

The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their family and friends.

Women have vital things to say and everything to give..
