It has been an extremely long time since I posted. I have been reading everyone else on their blogs and have enjoyed myself and yes I do leave comments but not every time I visit. I love looking at the stitching projects both finished and unfinished.

I have been very busy with other projects and here is my big news! The dreaded white quilt is finally finished and on it's way back to it's owner! Woo Hoo! No more feathered borders to quilt! Woo Hoo! I now have to quilt a lap size quilt which you quilters may remember - Snowbound - The Winter Quilt by Red Wagon - primitive applique blocks. This belongs to one of my former quilt students and lucky for me she is in no hurry for it. Maybe I will take a little time off quilting and cross stitch for a while. I would like to get block #10 of Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow finished before picking up the quilting again.

I have also be busy around the house. We have GRASS!!! Ok so it's only in the front yard but at least we have it. I water it faithfully daily or every other if the weather is not too hot. And it's kind of hot here, high 80's and it's only the middle of May - but I guess this is what it is in SC. Yes I am a transplant from Ohio and no I did not miss the winter in Ohio - my husband got to enjoy it all by himself!

Speaking of the husband, he was here visiting for the grandson's birthday and we have a wonderful visit. Grandson in the afternoon after school so Husband and I had all day to visit or travel around the countryside. He worked at our daughter's house down the road on several days - erecting a pool in the backyard, trimming weeds (and a bush or two), watering new grass, water proofing the porch steps, and stuff like that. She was at home to help on several of these projects while I finished up the quilting and binding.

When I came home from Ohio in April, I brought back with me all of my quilts and wallhangings. What a mess! I finally went through the bags (6 large black trash) again today and decided what to give away, what to keep, and what to sell. Plus I have a very small stack of tops to finish into quilts. So much to do and so little time.

Sorry again for no pictures of stitching. Husband sent pics of the house with Grass but I have no idea on how to move the pic here for you to see. Sorry I am a failure at this but just give me time and I'm sure to catch on. I will try and borrow my daughter's camera and take pics of my stitching and maybe she can figure out how to place it here.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week. May you enjoy good health.
Happy Stitching!


  1. Good to hear from you. Glad you have grass -- it's always a pain to water it so it won't die, isn't it? And good that the dreaded white quilt is done too. :D I'd love to see all your quilts that you brought home. What fun!

  2. I'd love to see your quilts, too! I'm glad that you're able to work on some stuff for you. :) Yeay on the grass, too!
