April Received Her Lizzie Kate Exchange

I was really worried that I was going to have to make another LKE ornament for April because it took 2 weeks for the package to arrive. I guess the heavy snows had something to do with it. I wanted to show the beaded hanger so I hooked it over one of the stands that my husband makes for me to display my goodies.
I am spending the day going through magazines and recycling them. AND I AM GETTING TO WORK ON MY LITTLE HOUSE NEEDLEWORK'S ORNAMENT THAT I RECEIVED ON THURSDAY!!!!!! Can you tell that I am excited? When I get home at night there is not much umph left in this old gal.
It has been so much fun to get to know other stitchers through my blog and the exchanges. This Internet is a wonderful tool.
I'm reading the autobiography of Jean Nidetch and there was a good quote from
Eleanor Roosevelt: "Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present."
May your day be filled with sunshine and joy.

Happy President's Day

It's happy because I have the day off from school and I woke up this morning and I didn't read my name in the obits. I have had a healthy breakfast of oatmeal topped with fresh blueberries and ground flax seed. I've had my vitamins with a half cup of orange juice and I'm getting ready to make some hot tea

My LKE partner has not received her exchange as of yet and it has been two weeks and she should have gotten it in 2 days. That disturbs me, so I think I will start on another one for her and if she does get the first one, I can save this for a gift. With my teaching schedule I don't want to be under pressure.
Life is grand! This morning I sat in my recliner, covered with a blankie and my two cocker spaniels. Life doesn't get much better than that. I'm going through my magazines and keeping the important stuff and will recycle the remainder at our school.

I have been remiss in not showing my gifts from my 2 stitching friends. Becky K. and I went to Idabel to visit our other stitching friend. She is closing her shop and that is sad for us but she is moving closer so we will get to see her more often. We enjoyed our drives down the Indian Nation Turnpike during all of the seasons of the year.
Enjoy your day and may it be filled with joy, peace, and hope.

Great giveaway

Go to for a great drawing for both stitchers and non-stitchers to be drawn on March 1st, her birthday. If you mention her drawing on your blog, she will put you name in twice. Good luck.

It has been cold here today and I have traffic duty in the morning and I had brain freeze all morning. BRRRRRR.............

Enjoy your week!

Received Round 3 LK

I received my cute LK February stamp from April. When she receives her round 3 LK, we will have a good laugh. She should have gotten it by now. I certainly hope it isn't lost. I did insure it so we will see.

This has been a long week at school but now it is Friday evening and I have to be back in Broken Arrow tomorrow by 7:30 a.m. It is our annual Circle The State With Song and I have 11 children that are participating in that event. For our school that is awesome. They will have a good day but will be tired pups by 3:00p.m. Then at 6:00p.m. I have a fund raiser at our school so it will be a long day and late evening. I will take stitching with me. I sit and listen to the children rehearse all day. Teachers must be there with their kids.

Have a great weekend and don't eat too much while you watch the Super Bowl.
