A New Stitching Update

A very happy Easter Monday to everyone; again, it has been a while since an update.

My eyesight has suffered from cataracts and I finally had the one surgery this past Thursday.  WOW, it is like have a brand new eye.  I now have 20/20 in my left eye and everything is clearer, brighter and sharper..........it is unbelievable what a new lense in your eye will do.  The second one happens on the 19th, and who knows?  I may not need my reading glasses any longer.

I finally managed to stitch a larger project before surgery; when I say larger, I mean fabric count.  I did Bless Our Home by Lizzie Kate on 7 ct. Klostern.  I bought a nice piece of quilted fabric with matching colors for a pillow.  A good friend will put this together for me with a ruffle.  I am not good at ruffles...lol

My Lizzie Kate ABC Lessons is almost complete.  I am going to concentrate on finishing that one up this week or next.

I also started a piece by Stitchworks; Find Your Joy and Go There...............

I also received a wonderful gift from my friend Jan; she is crocheting necklaces with beads!  She sent me a pink one for my granddaughter Hanna, and she made me a beautiful white/red biscornu.  She knows that red is one of my favorite colors!

Enjoy the photos; until next update.



I have decided to update more often, even if it is only a few stitches!  I hope all my 'stitchy' friends had a wonderful Easter.

Thanks to all my friends for commenting; I did quite a bit this morning before leaving for work on my Stitchworks piece. I will work on Lizzie Kate ABC's this evening while watching American Idol!

Hello

I'm new to your lovely blog.

I love your wooden spool ornaments!
Your stitching is lovely.

What a lovely necklace and the biscornu is very pretty.

Sue said...

Thank you Milly; I loved making those ornaments. They are so easy to make.

This is the first time I have created anything like a blog; so mine is a little primitive compared to others...LOL.....I am still learning.

A friend of mine, Jan, made the crocheted necklace and the biscornu. I just absolutely love them!

Hugs,
Sue
