I wanted to explain my absence. My DN Barbara died after Christmas of cancer. She only lived two and a half months after diagnoses. I shall miss her wicked sense of humor.
My DSL Mary fell in the evening and was not found the next morning. She has a broken hip. She has had surgery and will be receiving rehab for some time.
Finally DD Shirl's Aunt and Mentor is in the final stages of Alzheimers. Shirl is trying to get to OKC in time to be with her.
All in all not my favorite start to a year.

I'm sorry to be MIA. I will try to make it up as soon as things settle down.

I wish you all the best most fulfilling year ever.

Wow, it's been a long time but I'm back. I still love to cross stitch but i also have been doing some crochet and knitting. My new adventure is quilting and I can't wait to get started. Of course that means I have to cleanup and organize my craft room. But what is life without challenges???
I've missed you all and hope to keep in touch much better than ever.

I know I'm late but I have an excuse. DH complained about ort jar being foggy so he tried to wash it and wouldn't yo know it broke. Ha ha he didn't know I had two. But I washed it too so he wouldn't be embarrassed.

As you can see I done a lot of frogging again the month.

Happy Stitching

Weekend Stitching

Sorry, no pictures yet. I've been stitching on a model for my LNS and just not taken time to do a snap of it. I'm also stitching "Home" the first ornament from Brook's new Bride's Tree set, Peacock Purse etui and LNH's new seasonal sampler. I'll get pictures and more info. together when I get home tonight but wanted to post an update just in case I forget.

Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate your comments.

TUSAL for March and a finish

Here is March as you can see the frogs have taken up residence in ShayLand. {{sigh}}

This is my first big finish of 2011. It's for my LNS and as soon as I delivered it she gave me another. So it's fingers to the needle.

Thanks for visiting me.
I love your comments thanks for leaving them.

TUSAL for February

My picture is a little crocked but every thing above the white paper is for January. A fairly heave month of frogging. {sigh} And February is starting out the same way. I've been working on

Raise the Roof Designs, Christmasland this week. I thought I would make great progress but a lass not to be. Tuesday was inclement weather so I stayed home but needed to finish organizing my charts and books. Wednesday morning was the same except some time during the night the motor to the heater fan died. DH bought a few parts to tried to fix it but we ended up waiting for the repair man to come at 4:30 pm. By 6:00 pm we had heat. trying to bring the house back to 69 degrees from 53 degrees, when the temp. outside was 12 degrees, was a long process. By Thursday morning it was nice and toasty again just in time to go back to work.
Stitching with gloves and two comforters on just didn't happen. I ended up sleeping until it was supper time. We had soup.. what else.

Thanks for stopping by
Hope you have a blessed day
