Christmas 2012

Had an awesome Christmas. Wonderful time with my whole family in Vegas this year. Among the many wonderful blessings was a solo trip to my favorite shop there: Stitchers' Paradise. I picked up a few things including the kit for Rosewood Manor's Quaker Diamonds. It came complete with the valdani threads and I picked up a gorgeous 28ct lugana.
Finally back home, house clean laundry put away and all unpacking complete. Now for my first stitch in a long time...

By the Bay

Old WIP: "In My Fathers House". Have been working on a piece for my aunt and it's a whole lot of blue. While I want I finish it soon. I need a break. Now i will be getting an unexpected break from stitching since I will be having surgery for my wrist soon. I pray for a quick recovery and some great stitching time to come soon!

Taking a break from cross stitching a piece for my aunt. It's from a Spanish magazine that she has had for a while. Not something I would stitch for myself and the pattern is not the easiest to read, but I have been plugging away. No pics cause its still lots of boring blue. Towards the evening I switch to crocheting on a baby blanket

Graduation weekend

Son #2 graduated college on Sunday and Son#3 graduated high school
You would think I would be used to it by now but just thinking of saying goodbye to #3, my "baby"makes me sad :-(
We are proud of our three boys (#1 lives in New York state like #2 and he is in law enforcement )
I have to thank God that #3 decided ro go to school here in Okie:-)
Today is quiet. Dh and I took a day off. He is watching a movie and I am enjoying first stitch day in a long time!

Mothers day

Not much stitching going on... Trying our my new electric pressure cooker for the first time. It was one of my moms day gifts. Anyone out there have one? Still a little freaked out I was petrified of the stovetop one my mom had growing up.
