Well here I go again , I am going to try my best to keep this going this time as I started this in the first place to show off my stitching in hopes of maybe selling a few pieces but I got busy with other things , well those other things are quiet for the moment so maybe just maybe I can get this blog up and running , you never know maybe I can pull a small miracle out of the hat lol  .It has been a busy summer and with the heat the way it was the time was spent outside trying to stay cool by spending the time either in the shade or the water .

Now that the fall is coming and my flower beds are all put to bed it is time for me to get serious with my stitching again . At the moment I have several things on the go some small (trying to get ready for the fall craft sales in hope the smaller things are a bigger hit ) and some big ones .I have a pic of our oldest DGD ,also I have some feng shui pieces and I am just starting a pair of wolves for a special friend who fell in love with them . I will try and post pics of each one as I go along . this is one set of the feng shui pieces Guess that's about it for today .

With the New Year about to start and I am about to get a year older very soon lol , I figure it is about time I sit myself down and get serious about a couple of things .One I have this blog and it is about time I actually use it more then I have , so here is my first pic in a long time , it is of the very first snowfall we had here way back before Dec even got here , the snow lasted a whole day and about a half , but long enough for the little girl i watch and I make a snow man and start to make a snow fort (the snow man didn't last long lol by morning all that was left was his hat and scarf lol ) .The next thing on my short list is I seriously have to lose the weight and I am hoping that with the support of a group I am in that maybe I might be able to do that this time around , and the last thing is I would really love to start selling some of my crafts , I know I won't make a lot doing it but even a little bit would be nice but we will see what happens ,I will post pics of stuff I have done since Nov (even managed to sell a fair bit of stuff which surprised me but it was a lovely surprise ) ,but for now I had better go and clean up things a bit and start getting stuff ready for our New Years meal with our DGD :o) .

till later have a great day and a Very Happy New Year to all who read this

Okay I won't make this a long post as I just posted this pic or thought I did in the post before this one ,not sure what happened .Anyway this is the pic that goes with the post just before this one Cathy
I finally am able to up load the finished pic of my first try at my own pattern I made from the pattern maker pro and I have to say I am very pleased and proud of the way it turned out and I think the little girl who is in the pic is also very pleased with it if her smile was anything to go by :o) . I hope to have the next pic uploaded soon , the next one is for our DGD who just loves the series Twilight and the main character Edward so this pic is of Edward .I found it in the crossstitcher mag .Now my next big thing to stitch or at least for now is to try and find a pattern of him is the famous Justin Bieber :o) as I have three little girls (2 DGD's and the little girl in the pic I just stitched ) who would just love to have a stitched pic of him hanging in their rooms lol .

Well I guess that's it for now ,hope everyone has a lovely day :o)

Well another year is just about done and have to admit I have not finished the stuff I would have loved to finish , so this year I have been invited to join a bunch of ladies in a challenge 15 pieces to be picked and started in the first 15 days of Jan . My understanding is that I have to put a few stitches in each piece those days and then I have the rest of the year to finish but we have to post our pics as we go along ,so maybe that will get me going :o) .
Anyway the pic you see here is one of the pieces I want to get done .This is a piece that I made from a photo .So here's hoping I can get these 15 pieces done .

In the coming weeks I will also put up pics of my other choices as well ,but this one takes top of the list
