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.

The Teacher

Picking up this UFO I believe I started this 5 years ago. It is "the Teacher" by Butternut Road. I come from a long line of educators, my second masters is in an Education field and my youngest recently announced he wants to be a teacher:-) this piece has special meaning.
