July Smalls SAL post......


Wow!!! Yes can it be??  I am FINALLY able be back to blogging and to make a Smalls Post.  Our Smalls SAL is hosted by Heather of Stitching Lotus which you can click on her blog name to see what everyone has been stitching lately.  I did get the email where I could have included my past 3 months of Smalls project.  However, due to certain situations, I never got back to posting my smalls on Heather's SAL but that is ok.

Here are the 2 smalls I managed to get stitched for this month.  I am still working on our daughter's graduation present which I can't post ANY pictures of it whatsoever.  It's still a surprise and she knows it will be late.

The first one is Erica Michaels Day 4 berry.  I used the fabric and floss called for on the chart.


The 2nd smalls that I stitched this month is Erica Michaels Sweet Freedom Berry.  I used 35ct Natural linen with Hand Dyed Fibers regular silk in the following colors:  White 5200, Rubbed Darkest Mermaid, Yellow Spice 4165, Examplar Cocoa Bear, Zebra Dove 5249, Rubbed Sampler Red, BeLeaved, and Burnished Bronze.


The "finishing" work of actually assembling these into the actual berry form will take place here soon and pictures will follow then.

It is SO WONDERFUL to be back to blogging. I have had so much to happen this year that blogging just had to take a hiatus on my part. 

I look forward to sharing more pictures of my stitching and family.....especially some wedding pictures of our daughters recent wedding, both kids graduations and more family pictures. 

Happy Stitching Everyone!!!

May Smalls post.....



Heather of Stitching Lotus is our host for our monthly Smalls SAL.  I forgot to post for Apr as I was moving my mom into her new place and I was traveling a lot.  So.....I will just post for Apr and May  this month.

This is Erica Michae'ls Day 1 berry stitched for April's Smalls post.


Here is Erica Michael's Day 2 berry for May Smalls post.


These small berries are such a fun stitch and easy to take with me during my travels this year.  Now....to get them made INTO looking like a berry!  Soon....I promise.

Happy Stitching.

Happy Mother's Day!!!



I just wanted to post a Happy Mother's Day to my mom, my sister, my mom friends and all the other Moms out there!!!  It was great spending more time with her over this Mother's Day weekend while I was already in town for our daughter's graduation from college.  I will post about that tomorrow!

I was going to post a picture of my mom that I took this morning but being tired at the moment, the drive home, the constant busyness of life lately if you know what has been going on, I am too tired to figure out how to get the picture from my Facebook page to my blog post.  You can see our picture on my Facebook page.

I'm off to stitch the rest of the night away!  I am SOOOOO NEEDING some serious stitching time!

Happy Stitching and Happy Mother's Day!!!

Mar Smalls SAL


Heather of Stitching Lotus is our host for our Smalls SAL.  I know I am several days late from the March posting date, but most of you have read on my blog that I have been extremely busy helping my mom after the passing of my dad.

Now....here is what I have managed to stitch while helping my mom. 

Erica Michael's Partidge Berry is only stitched as I didn't have my finishing supplies with me.


LHN Little Red Barn was my 2nd finish for March.


Hopefully this week or next while I am still at home I can get around to actually doing the "finishing work" on these 2 projects.

Happy Stitching everyone!

Happy Easter......

I know I have been very absent on my blog but I have been trying to help my mom a lot after my dad's passing back in January.  I have always said I would take care of my parents no matter what and no matter how far I lived away since we are a military family. So my blog posts may be a little sparse for a while but I hope to get back into posting more this year.

But I did want to post this picture for my Easter Blog Post today.


I pray that you have had a wonderful Easter Sunday.  I thoroughly enjoyed our church service this morning and spending the day with my family.
