LKE Was Received by Kirsi and I Receive Mine

I received an email from Kirsi letting me know that she had received her Round 2 LKE, so I will post a picture now. I enjoyed working it up.

In today's mail was my Round 2 LKE from Karen. It is so neat and I treasure it. It is done over 1 on even weave. She also made floss cards to go with it. I will use it. You can never have enough.

Fabulous Weekend

Saturday my good friend and I went to Tulsa to visit the stitching shops, eat, and is there anything else? The trees were pretty and the weather was perfect.

I also mailed my Round 2 for LK. My partner should get it about Thursday.

They say no rain for the next 7 days. October only had 11 days without rain. It has been a soggy month.

My quote for the week:
Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.

I just finished my LK Halloween Samplings for my daughter in law that just moved and is having to make some adjustments. She does cross stitch and I wasn't sure she wanted me to do some for her. She asked me the other day if I would make her some and I said sure. (That pleases a mother in law.)

I think I will make it into a pin keep or a little pillow. Finishing is always the hardest for me. I can do it just fine but it is getting started. My helper is on her fall foliage trip and I need her here. LOL

I wish all of you a great Monday and a blessed week. I am moving into my new room and it is rather nerve racking. What I need for one room is in the other room.

Lenna received her birthday exchange

Lenna received her birthday exchange so I will post a picture. I am new to these exchanges and I forgot to take a picture of the extras I sent her, but she posted them on her blog.

This has been a crazy week and tomorrow is Friday. I'm ready. With rain always peeking through the clouds the children have been wild. Then it would rain and they had to stay in during recess. Then the teachers went wild. I will be moving to my new room and I cannot wait. I have taught for 3 years in our parish hall with a closet for all of my musical instruments and all of my teaching supplies. I will not know what to do!!!!!

Enjoy your weekend. We are supposed to have rain.

Sent My SBBC Exchange Today

I sent my SBBC Exchange today and it should reach it home in about 4 days. It is so excited about going such a long way.

School has started and I am going crazy. I have another class to teach so my days are full. The children are wonderful and are really doing an excellent job. I love what I do. We have a new building and we will be moving the middle of September. I'm already getting tired.

Our weather has been marvelous. I truly enjoy going on my walks now. I sweat but it is a cool sweat.

Enjoy your day and God Bless.

Pjiro received my LK Exchange

Here is a picture of my LIK Exchange. At first I thought I had bit off more than I could chew, time wise but it went very quickly and I really enjoyed doing it for Pjiro. Now to do the finishing work on my SBBC Exchange. It shouldn't take me too long.

School begins for me this week and I can't tell you where the time went. I spent a few days with our grandchildren in Texas and then Gary and I went back down and helped our son and his family with their move to Paducah, TX.

I've started a little Bent Creek Zippie and it is fun to work on. Enjoy the rest of the week, stay cool, and may your lives be filled with many blessings.

My Lizzie Kate Is On Its Way

I mailed my Lizzie Kate Exchange today and the Postmaster told me it would only take 4 days. I am so excited. I hope it likes its new home.

Today I spent the day with two of my dearest friends. We shopped, visited, and ate together. It is always a treat to spend time with good friends.

I am going to Denton, TX tomorrow afternoon and help our son take two of our granddaughters to Six Flags. We had to cancel once because of bad weather. We are planning on being there when they open and being there when they close. I hope this Nana has not bit off more than she can chew. It has been 21 years since my last visit to Six Flags. I'll share when I get back.

Peace and blessings to all.

Lizzie Kate Exchange Received

I went to Las Vegas to meet my brother whom I had not seen in about 8 years. We had a wonderful time and the casinos did not earn a dime from us. We were to busy visiting and walking. We walked 9 miles. He is 74 and I am 64; not too bad for old timers.

When I returned home I had received my Lizzie Kate exchange from Hazel of the United Kingdom. What a wonderful surprise. I love my pin keep. Thank you so much Hazel.

Great Birthday Exchange

I received my SBBC exchange on June 17th. But when I tried to publish my blog I could not get the picture to come up and by the way of Becky K of OK we decided that the plug in was loose. (I'm sure there is a correct computer term but you have to remember that I am a music teacher.) I ran out of time so after a trip to Wisconsin I am finally able to download my picture and post that I received my birthday exchange. I love it and I have hung it in a perfect place in my living room. I appreciate the time and effort it took to make my little bag. I'm working on a Lizzie Kate exchange and I plan to use some of by pearl beads on it. They are perfect. Thank you so much Joke B. from the Netherlands.

Here is a picture of my finished Trilogy Tin. It was really fun to do. I think I will finish it, as suggested by my friend Becky K of OK, to mount it on top of my little tin and make a needle case.

I have 30 minutes free so I am going to stitch on "Bringing Spooky Treats" by Becky Boo's. My coffee is calling. This week is Teacher Appreciation at All Saints and they have treated us royally.

Monday, May 4, 2009

I have entered in Edgar's blogaversary drawing. I hope I win. I finished a project this weekend. It is "Peace in all things" by Trilogy in the little thin tins. It really turned out very well. Of course I am at school and the project and camera are at home. I will try to add a snap this evening.
I am continuing on my WIP by Becky Boo's. It is the Halloween picture with all of the buttons which I just adore.

Becky K of OK and I went to Idabel to visit our friend, Mary Ann, that has the delightful shop called Mimi's. We had a relaxing weekend and lots of laughs. We drove down in torrential rain or as is called in Oklahoma a "toad strangler" rain.

It rained while I drove home yesterday from school. It rained on me this morning while I did duty and it is supposed to rain this evening while I go home from school. Our lakes, rivers, streams, and ponds are overflowing.

Hope to post more tonight. Peace and blessing for the week.

Started Another One

I have started another pink baby blanket. I have 8 inches done. That is pretty good for me. This is a picture of our granddaughter, Miss Makenzie. She is holding our 2 babies.I thought i would share my Easter/Spring display on my grandmother's treadle sewing machine cabinet. The scarf was made by her many years ago. You can't see the tiny stitches on the egg I cross stitched. The little Easter pillow and Easter card was stitched by my friend Becky. It is cool and cloudy and I finished doing our taxes today! Well I will be honest I just collected all of the receipts and added them together to take to our tax lady. Go Cowpokes, let's hear "Pistols Firing" tomorrow during the game. Until next time, enjoy each day to its fullest and share the love of God with others.

Finished At Last

I want to wish all of you a Happy St. Patty's Day. My husband and I went to the cafeteria and had our annual Corned Beef and Cabbage. It was very good. But it will last me for another year.

I finished my baby blanket that I have been working on forever. Now I have started on another one for one of my coworkers at school. We are headed to Texas tomorrow so the needles will fly while I listen to my book on tape.

My friend and I met at our local ice cream shop and had fresh coffee and a dip of that good cool stuff. It was 84 today so that is the right weather for ice cream.

We took the babies to the groomer today and they are going to spend a couple of nights with their Grandma Lynn. They love her and she loves them. It gives me comfort to know they are well taken care of and they get to run around instead of being in a crate all day and night.
May the winds be at your back and the sunshine on your face. Blessings.

Greetings and Salutations to all: As you can see I have not added anything since November. I am a music teacher and from November through Christmas I have no time except to teach and hope all works out well.

I have been knitting a wee baby blanket for a friend but that is all. I have taken a few stitches but none to show.

I commute 2 hours each day, I drive to Oklahoma Baptist University on Monday after school which is an hour and a half commute. I teach piano on Tuesday after school. I visit with my friend Susan, from the 4th grade on Wednesdays and get my hair done. I go to Weight Watchers on Thursday, and on Fridays, I die. My weekends are full.

So it is with great anticipation that I am looking forward to Spring Break.

I am walking at least 30 minutes each day and by the end of the day there is not much left. I am trying my best to go to bed by 8:30 because I get up at 4:45.

I gave up diet coke for Lent and I should have added I will stitch 15 minutes each day. It isn't too late I will try that.

Our Bradford pear trees, wild plums, etc. have burst into bloom and the red birds sing gratefully every morning as I prepare to go to work. I pray that everyone has a wonderful week filled with happiness and joy.
