New to the blogging world!

I got my best friend cross stitching again. We use to cross stitch a long time ago together and she stop cuz of life and things. But when she visited a couple months ago I gave her the stuff to make a project (you can see it here) for a friend of hers. And of course it hooked her again! Now shes decided to start blogging :) Lol ain't I such a great friend to get her hooked on all this fun stuff! But now she needs a couple followers, so go check out her latest project at Emmie's Ramblings. Thanks!

Today's projects

When I woke up this morning I felt the need to work on my puzzle thats been sitting on my craft table for about a month now! A couple months ago I went into the store to buy some more puzzle glue for a puzzle I had just finished and I saw this Yankee brand puzzle. If you aren't familiar with the Yankee brand they are candles. And they smell heavenly!!! One of my all time favorites is the Macintosh. It smells so good you just want to eat the candle. But the puzzles smell like the candles! So I just absolutely had to buy one! Sadly they only had two to choose from. One was the midsummers night smell which I don't mind but is not one of my favorites. but the picture on it was really pretty. It was four horses running on a night time beach. But next to it was a Macintosh one, so I bought that one. John helped me work on it, but then life got in the way and it got left alone. It was about half done and I sat down at it today and had it done in less than 20 mins. Which is weird because when we sat down and started it, it was actually a hard one to piece together.

Then I went downstairs to get some breakfast and looked out at the flower garden. Some more flowers came up!

After that I decided I would sit and do some stitching today since i'm still sore from playing tennis yesterday with John. I manged to finish "the dog did it". Except for putting it together. I might get to that this weekend. I did cut them out after I took this photo.

Well I hope everyone is enjoying their week. Thanks for visiting!

Another giveaway!

Cathy over at Crazy By Design is having three giveaways for her 200th post. Stop on by her blog and enter the fun.

TUSAL & some yard pics

So we were outside working on the yard for a little bit and I took a couple pictures.

John looking oh so happy.

Dad on the tractor.

Here is my grandma's flower garden that she planted years ago. At least 60 years ago I believe. A couple of the flowers are starting to come up. It's also starting to get too big so I need to transplant some of them.

And since its the 14th here is my ort jar. I really haven't done too much actual stitching so there isn't a ton of new bits in here. As always you can join in on the fun at Dragon My Needle.

Hope you all are finding some time to stitch!

Finally NY pics!

Man it took me forever to get my New York pictures uploaded. I had trouble getting them to upload on my Facebook account, and I couldn't get them to upload on any slide program I knew of. But I finally got some of them uploaded on my photobucket. So here is a slide show of just some of the 300 and some pictures that I took. Enjoy!

Oh yea on stitching news... I have finished one of the bracelets for the girls. Now to work on the other two.
