Happy Mother's Day!

Hiya pals!

Happy Mother's Day to everyone!

I had the most wonderful day ever.  We went on a little road trip yesterday to visit my father and he is doing so good after his surgery.  I was quite surprised at how healthy he looked.  My boys gave me some red roses and Brayden wrote me the sweetest letter about how he loves my for my cooking.  It was a perfect day!

Now on to the stitching!

I thought I better show what my ABC Christmas by LizzieKate looks like as a whole.  I have never stitched a project where I jumped around like this but it is kinda fun to stitch it this way.

I filled in two more patterns on Save The Stitches by Elizabeth Almond.  I think another day should finish this block up.

And I am kinda obsessed with this right now.  Mothers and Daughters by The Victoria Sampler.  It stitches up really fast and is so pretty.  I can't wait to give it to my Mama!

Well I am off to bed, nothing like 3 hours in the car to make you sleepy.

I hope you all had a lovely day and thanks for stopping by for the visit!

Happy Stitching!

A little more stitching

Hiya!  Again!  

I am back already!

I managed a little more on Deepest Love by Mirabilia.

Hamilton Horse by Brooke's Books is kinda looking like a horse, be that a horse wearing a Christmas sweater. Ha!

And I finished another word on ABC Christmas.  I am slowly but surely catching up on the Christmas Ornie SAL!

I have a little favor to ask of all of you.  My Dad is having a double by-pass surgery right now.  Any good thoughts or prayers you could send his way would mean so much to me.  

Thank you all xo

A little update and my retreat stitching


I have been stitching lately, just not posting.  But here is what I have been up to.

Deepest Love by Mirabilia is coming along slowly.  I don't know why since I love stitching on it but every time it comes up in rotation I seem to be too busy to stitch.

I am almost finished of my third word on ABC Christmas.  I hope to have it finished tomorrow.

I completed one pattern on block 9 of Save The Stitches.

And now on to retreat stitching!

I got there on Friday after lunch and got right to stitching.  I managed a few hundred stitches on Hannah Lynn before I called it a night the first day.  Getting close to the top of her head! 

Saturday I started Mothers And Daughters Sampler by The Victoria Sampler.  I am so in love with this and actually am with all their patterns, I can't wait to finish this and stitch more of their beautiful designs!  

And then the last day I worked on Halloween Rules by LizzieKate.

The retreat was so much fun, we have a great group and spent a lot of time laughing, maybe more laughing than stitching but that is ok.

Hope you all are getting lots of stitching done!

Happy Stitching!

It is TUSAL time again, or actually past TUSAL time but I did take this picture on the right day.  I am just way behind in my posting.  I have been busy finishing up a project I can't share as they are going to be teacher gifts for the 2018 EAC Seminar that will be taking place right here on PEI!  So my own stitching has taken a back seat for the last little while, but there has been small progress none the less.  

I did put in a couple days on Hannah Lynn from Heaven and Earth Designs.

And I am still slowly working away on Deepest Love by Mirabilia.

I finished Gigi Giraffe by Brooke's Books which I just happened to be stitching while watching April the giraffe give birth.

And I started on Hamilton Horse.

On ABC Christmas by LizzieKate I completed 2 letters and started on the third.

Block 9 of Save The Stitches had a little progress on the border.

I am getting quite close to finishing the header on Halloween Rules by LizzieKate.  I am really looking forward to starting the "rules"

I finished February from The Snowflower Diaries Joyful World SAL.

Finally after what felt like forever I finished The Gift by Blackberry Lane Designs.

And one of my most favorite finishes ever was ABC's Of Parenting.  I am not sure how I am going to finish finish this but it needs to be somewhere I can see it everyday and be reminded by it to not sweat the small stuff and enjoy my kids as much as I can because they grow up so fast and mud on their clothes means they are having fun and who cares when the laundry gets done. :)

I didn't actually think I had gotten that much stitching done until I realized how many pictures I had to add to this post.  It is a good idea to reflect on things every now and then I guess :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stitching!

Busy weekend!


Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend!!

Here are my boys on Easter morning.

The weekend was so busy I had hardly any time to stitch.

On Halloween Rules I stitched one row on the moon.

And on Deepest Love I added one small green patch.

I am back at it today though since Brayden is back to school and I don't have to make food... constantly!!!!  I do not have any idea how I am going to be able to afford to feed 2 teenage boys if they eat this much at 7 and 4.  Win the lotto I guess.  Ha!

Hope you all are having a wonderful day!

Happy Stitching!
