Hello Stitching Friends

I just wanted to take a few minutes to wish all of you a Merry Christmas.  It is hard to believe it is time for the holidays to be here.  It's like we've all worked like mad getting ready for the big day, and then, here it is.

I have had this week off from work, using up some vacation days.  However, best laid plans and all....I ended up pulling a muscle in my right chest area on Tuesday, so my plans got slowed down.  I have been trying to take it easy in the hopes that it heals quickly.  It is much better than it was earlier in the week, but still such a pain to have this hinder me when I wanted to get things accomplished this week.  Mike told me not to grumble, but be glad I had days off work to take it easy..

I hope all of you have a great holiday for those of you with some time off, and a Merry Christmas!
May you find the joy and magic of the season.

Happy Stitching, dear Friends.

Anyone still there?

Hello fellow stitching friends!

It's been a long time since I've posted last!  This is thanks to my friend Cathy, for inquiries about why I haven't posted in so long.  I guess I was waiting for the weather to be completely opposite of my last post...that was in the middle of a heat wave and today we are in for what will be the coldest we've had in awhile...  wind chills tomorrow morning are expected to be -30!!!

I have been busy stitching, reading, working and spending time playing with our granddaughter.  Addy is going to be 20 months old at the end of the month. It doesn't seem possible.  We enjoy her immensely and get to spend time with her often. She is talking a lot and loves to see her grandma and grandpa.  

She loves books and loves to have me read stories ❤.

I do have some finishes to share
Then this is my current project

I'm sorry for the crappy photos. For the last one Henry our dog, decided it was time to sit on my lap, so I'm rather hampered in my attempts at the moment.

What software are you using to do your posts?  I'm still using Blogger, but it seems to be not working as well as it used to.  I mostly use my iPad to write my posts.  It has become very frustrating since I lose whatever I write or photos I share with no warnings unless I save after every few sentences.

I will try to do another post before too long.  

Happy stitching!
