I have added a new feature!!

I have added a box to let followers and visitors get my own designs. These designs are simple. I have just started. I like simple things. Easy to stitch and with colors that can be changed by the person stitching them, to fit their style. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer. I have not stitched this current design, as I am just trying to get this started. I have included in the file a picture of the finished piece, as it would look stitched.

More Sad News

Found out today that my Aunt Helen, who has a mastecomy in 2007, now has cancer returned in her bones. She is in alot of pain. She has been in a wheel chair since July 2007 as she fell and broke her knee and hasn't been able to walk since. She was born with MD and could walk small distances at a time before the fall with a walker. Now she is chair bound. I love her very much and miss her. I have not been able to return to AZ to visit since I came home in 2008. All my LOVE Helen.

The weather has been really wierd. Rain in California, in June? And for the last 4 days? I don't mind, but, this is just WIERD!. I have not been stitching much. I am helping the kids get ready for a Complex Wide Yard Sale. All the tenants are going to have tables and make a day of it. I also took a tumble while trying to corral the landlords dog. Bruised and a bit sore but I will mend. Worst part is I cracked a rib. The landlords dog got out when I went through the gate, and she had just had surgery on her broken arm, so I was trying to be nice. I hope to post a finish sometime tomorrow, of my June ornie. Later, Keep stitching, Keep smiling and always remember to ENJOY.

Go over to Melissas blog. She is having a great giveaway.

Exchange Received!!

I got the most fantastic package from Maru in Mexico. She stitched a scissor case and fob. The Scissor Case has a delicate turquoise and purple design. The Fob has a little dragon and flower. There was a nice new pair of stork scissors attached. She also sent a sewing kit, in a great tin, from Gutermann's. Several skeins of turquoise and purple floss and a cute angel note pad.

Thank you Maru for a great exchange.
