Stitching today... along with baseball and pot roast!

I am determined to stitch for a couple hours today and later tonight.  I need it. Desperately.

I have to get the dirty clothes together, wash dishes, and gather the household trash up.  After that, it's needle and floss.

I have put off the time on Pumpkins 4-Sale because of the addition for my late sister, Beth.  I tend to cry a lot when I think of her. 

This is me and Beth on my Wedding Day.  We were laughing because I'd taken my shoes off.  God Bless her... she tried to teach me knit. She finally took the needles from me, handed back my crochet hook, and made me promise NEVER to try to knit again. :)

I miss her.

Anyway, I will get through it. I always do.

Tonight, Happy Husband and I will be at my younger sister's home for Confederate Pot Roast! No cooking for me! No dirty dishes!

Baseball this evening and tonight: #GoSox #BrewCrew!

Last, but definitely not least, Savannah's HOT weather is on it's way out. Here it is, mid-October, and we're just now going to drop into daytime highs in the mid-70s and lows in the mid-50s.

I will be mailing the prize packages this weekend.  Look for another giveaway in November!

Happy Stitching ya'll!

Pumpkins 4-Sale -- small progress

I worked on Pumpkins 4-Sale for a few hours this evening.  Not only did I make some progress, but I charted my own special addition to the design -- a small tribute to my late sister, Beth.  I'll stitch that into the piece tomorrow.

Would you believe I had NO skeins of Black from any fiber company?  Mike had to make a quick run to Jo Ann's for me.  First time I've never had any DMC 310 since I started stitching 20+ years ago.

My football hopes for UGA were dashed by LSU this afternoon.  However, the Crimson Tide is rolling!  My Milwaukee Brewers today as well.  *sigh*  

I wish you all a very peaceful, calm, blessed evening.  Stay safe and Happy Stitching!

It's #ILoveYarn Day! Time to Stitch!

I don't knit, so I'll crochet a bit this evening.

For me, it's time to stitch.  The past few weeks have been scary, stressful, and worrisome. 

I seriously considered packing away my WIPs and shutting down.

But, I persisted! 
Thankfully, those feelings passed and I'm ready to get to work!

STITCHING: Needle, Floss, Fabric, Chart, Markers, Scissors: All Set.




Also, #GoNavy  #GoIrish  #GoYellowJackets

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend.  Happy Stitching!

So happy that Friday is here!

What a wild week!  Hurricane Michael barreled through the Florida Panhandle and then north.  It really wreaked havoc and is continuing to bring rain and more rain.

Savannah was spared this time and we are thankful for it.  The storm did break the terrible humidity and heat, however, and we have cool temps for this weekend.

Congratulations to the three lucky winners of my birthday giveaway.  I'll have a new giveaway coming in November!

I haven't stitched any this week.  Between the pulled muscle in my back and my knee... I've been on a heating pad more often than not.  I intend to stitch today.  Wish me luck.

Please may I ask for prayers for my oldest daughter, Michelle.  She is having a small lump removed from her breast.  This is the second time.  The first was benign and We're praying this one will be as well.

I hope everyone has a wonderfully blessed weekend.  Shabbat Shalom to my Jewish friends.  

Happy Stitching!

October Song

 I'll sing you my October song 
There is no song before it 
The words and tune are not my own 
My joy and sorrow bore it 

Beside the sea 
the brambly brier 
In the still of evening 
Birds fly out from behind the sun 
And with them I'll be leaving 

The fallen leaves bejewel the ground 
They know the art of dying 
And leave with joy their glad gold hearts 
In scarlet shadows lying 

When hunger calls my weary footsteps home 
The morning follows after 
I swim the seas within my mind 
The pine trees laugh green laughter 

 I met a man who's name was time 
He said "I must be going" 
But just how long ago that was 
I have no way of knowing 

Sometimes I could murder time 
When my heart is aching 
But mostly I just like to stroll along 
The path that he is taking...

October PINK RIBBON Cross Stitch Freebie

I designed this small Pink Ribbon Christmas design several years ago.

Free, if you'd like to save it / stitch it.

It's nothing spectacular, but I designed it with love.

Happy Stitching!
