Lizzie Kate Bell pull

I have stitched this Lizzie Kate bell pull for a very special person in my life, my cousin Sheila Stevenson. Sheila has recently written a book, Hope for Survivors of Childhood Abuse. I am going to give her the bell pull tomorrow, I hope she will love it as much as I loved stitching it for her. She has chosen to come forward with a very difficult subject and I am very proud of her. I know she has helped a lot of people with her words and with her kindness.
To my friend Jayne who helped put my bell pull together with not a lot of advance warning, you are truly one in a million and I so love you. Thank you so very much. You are always there for me. I am looking forward to our time at our Brentwood Retreat in just 28 days. Who is bringing the wine?????
Have a great weekend everyone!

Evangeline is finished, now she just has to get stretched and framed. She is perfect I love the colours. The face is stitched over 1 thread that was a challenge, but well worth the effort. Thank you P for the magnifying glass. It was very much needed.
The Chart of Evangeline was created in memory of hurricane Katrina.

Happy Birthday Rachel!

On April 23, 1980 my darling little girl was born, Rachel JoAnn. She is a little sister to Sarah. Today she is 30 years old, where have all those years gone? Now she and her husband Steve have two lovely daughters. We are very proud of you Rachel, your Dad and I hope you have a wonderful birthday and we will celebrate in fine style this week end. We love you always! Bojangles will be there too!!!

Early Morning!

Hi everyone, well last night I went stitching at Henley's Landing. We had a great time as usual, we were a small group but we had a nice evening and got caught up on a lot of news and managed to do quite a bit of stitching.

I am on my way to work this a.m. but thought I would add a few words to my blog before I leave, but not many I seem to be very tired this morning. I will blog more soon.

Feather's In The Nest has a Mother's Day give Away, have peek. They are very pretty!

Have a great day everyone!

Oh Happy Day!

Well I have just received good news about our stitching retreat, a few months ago I met a lady at the Thread and Eye (cross stitching store) in London, Ontario who doesn't have any stitching friends. Well that is all about to change, she is 99% sure she is coming to our retreat!!!!! How awesome is that. To my Stitching Sisters, I can't wait for you to meet her she is a very nice lady. We have our annual stitching retreat the last week end in May and we all so look forward to it three days of nothing but stitching, laughing, massages, swimming, etc. Oh yes an the occassional glass of wine.

To up date you on my stitching. I have completed Evangeline and I have about 5 minutes left on my Lizzie Kate. I have also finished 3 of the 4 monthly Christmas ornaments. I am going to begin the fouth one tonight.

I hope all is well with everyone, we have had beautiful sunny warm weather here the last couple of days. It has been so nice to take in the rays!

By the way my favourite stitching stores are:
Country Accents
Thread and Eye
The Sampler

Wenesday Stitch Night

The Stitching Sisters always have such a good time when we gather at Henley's Landing for our Wednesday stitch night. There is something special about gathering around that large wonderful table that brings out the best of us. Last night one of our stitchers had a funnt tale about a very wet basement and their very little dog. I didn't know that little dog stories could get racey!!! So funny!!! One of our stitchers is leaving today on a cruise through Panama, a very lucky lady. She will be gone for a month. She will be coming home just in time to get ready for our retreat.
We had lots of finished products to look at last night and some getting close to being finished. Some only beginning. My Lizzie Kate project will be finished this week. That is a promise.
The weather here has been very rainy, going to start building the ark soon. Well the flowers will be happy!
I will be in touch soon. Have a good day everyone!

Jersey Boys

DH and I went to see this great show on Wednesday. It was a beautiful warm, sunny day and it made for a really nice trip to Toronto, traffic was good and the GPS took us right there. We thoroughly enjoyed the show, the music took us back to when we were dating. After the show we went to Gretsky's Bar, the food was delicious and the drinks were not bad either. We had a great time and we are ready to do it again sometime soon. We just have to decide which show to take in, there are lots of choices.
We are enjoying our Easter week end, DH is going to work in his garden, my Mom is here visiting we will probably sit out on the deck and she will crochet and I will stitch. Evangeline is finished, so I may work on a Christmas ornament. Maybe my Lizzie Kate that I am doing for a very special cousin.
Hope everyone has a nice Easter!
