Hi all my stitching friends! It is Friday, the 27th and here it is almost the end of April; where is our year going?
As you can see, our one little Chihuahua loves my yarn when I am crocheting dish cloths....LOL......Kia, is a little mess..........
I will take a couple of work in progress photos in a little while and post them; one is It is 5'O'Clock Somewhere and the other is Joy by Stitchworks. I am sending my LK pillow top and fabric posted previously to my friend Carein in Arkansas to put together into a ruffled pillow. I am not real good at finishing things off just yet, but I am practicing...lol
Both of my eye surgeries were a wonderful success! I can see so much clearer and sharper; it is a 'new world' out there for me now. I am back to stitching on my smaller counts but have not had much stitching time this week. I plan to do quite a bit this weekend.
My grandson is coming this evening for a 'sleepover'....lol.....he says he loves our home. Bless his heart; he is a dear and we have so much fun. His brother and Dad are going to Boy Scout camp and Mom and Hanna are going to Hanna's last volleyball tournaments of the year. Tomorrow, he and I will go shopping, of course! LOL.....Bookstore, and Target.....his two favorite places.
Well, better get moving so I can take a couple of updated photos! I am also getting ready to start a RR in my stitching group, Every Stitch Counts! I will take a photo of the sampler I chose for my piece.........you can let me know what you think. Until later!

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.
