Thursday night

Hi everyone, sorry I have been away from my blog. I have had a lot going on and I am afraid not a lot of stitching. I have been very busy at work. My dear friend Trish has an ill husband who is in hospital right now. And my daughter is shopping her heart out in the great U.S.A. So her two little rugrats have been staying with us while their Daddy works. We have had a lot of fun with them, but boy are we tired. They will be going home tomorrow night.

I will be stitching all evening tomorrow, I have to make up time, Christmas is coming soon. So much to do and as usual so little time!

My friend Jayne has just framed her Harem it looks wonderful! T's unicorn is great we saw the finished profuct last night! What a talented group we are.

Hope everyone has a great week end!

Good morning everyone!

Well today did not start off so well I had terrible cramping in my leg and I had very little sleep. I decided to stay home from work and give it a rest.

Last night was better we all gathered at Jayne's for a night of stitching. Jayne has completed The Harem, it is absolutely wonderful! The rest of us are working on our Wednesday projects. My Evangaline is underway and T with her moose, P with her heron, (the branch is great) TL is getting her wolves underway and TM would have completed her snowmen but she forgot her outline thread at home. We broke up early as some us have early morning start times. We all would like to stay later, maybe when we retire.

No more stitching for me this wee end I am getting ready for my Creative Memories Christmas Open House! I will be a little busy!!!!!!

Back from Niagara Falls

A fun time was had by Steve and Kerry in Niagara Falls, we set off Friday afyernoon. It was a glorious sunny and warm day and the drive down to the falls was great. So nice to be away fro a few days. We stayed at a lovely hotel overlooking the falls and our friends Debbie and Chan met us and stayed over. We went out for dinner and gambled our 20.00 at the casino and left. No we did not win. Saturday morning they left and I went off to class. Yes I was there for a convention so I did have to attend class on Saturday and Sunday morning. But that was ok, the rest of the time was for fun.

Saturday night we had a great buffet in the Grand Ballroom and there were many prizes given away, no Steve and I came home with NOTHING! Everyone else at our table won, but not us. What a bummer.

We arrived home around 3:00 and I stitced for a little whle on a Christmas ornament, but I was so tired I really coundn't concentrate so I put it away and just watched a little telly with Steve and it was an early night.

This week Maddison and Chloe are staying with me for a couple of days and I have my Creative Memorie's open house on Friday and Saturday so I will be a busy lady this week.
I hope to have some time to stitch but it does not look good right now.

Pray for me........

November 9, 2009

Hope everyone had a great week end. I sure did. We had Steve's Mom and his sister and her husband for the day on Saturday and for dinner. It was a very nice visit and the weather was beautiful, warm enough that we could all sit outside in the afternoon. Imagine November and we did not need a coat.

Sunday I was off to church in the morning. It was our Remberance Day service, very emotional for us this year. It is the first year without Steve's Dad being with us. We miss him a lot. He was a WW2 vet and he always carried the flag into the church with the other vets. We were always so very proud of him.

When I got home from church I planted myself on the deck with my stitching. I am working on Evangeline, she is coming along quite well. Then around 4:00 it was time to get dinner ready for my stitching sister Trish and her husband Chas. They arrived about 5:00 and Steve made BBQ chicken on the BBQ it was delicious.

Today November 9, 2009 is my good friend Debra's birthday. We have been friends since grade 1. Hope you had a great day and I look forward to seeing you on Friday.

Hope everyone has a great week.

Wednesday night at Jayne's

It is my favourite day of the week, Wednesday. This is the day The Stutching Sisters all gather at Jayne's for a night of stitching and discussions on all the world issues. Last week it was H1N1. Who know what tonight will bring.

I had a call this week from a lovely lady in Sarnia that I met in London at The Thread and Eye. She is looking for the chart for Kindred Spirits. Apparantly it has been discontinued, so this week end I will be digging through my stash to find my chart. Wish me luck.

Today has been a really glum, rainy day. I hate rainy days I always feel that something bad always happens when it rains and true to form I received a phone call from my dear cousin in Petrolia and it seems her daughter was in a bad car accident in Toronto. She is going to be ok, but it was a big scare for her family. You just never know, do you?

My sweet husband has made dinner tonight, so off I go to see what he has created.

One more thing my ornament for the Christmas exchange is stitched, now Jayne just has to help me put it together...............Please?????
