Almost A New Year

Hello Everyone, Well here we are at the end almost of another year.  2013 has been Okay for us but a few bumps in the road.  DH has been sick off and on, mainly kidney stones......But he now has a new doctor and so far he seems to be better.

We spent our day at Turkey Run State Park Inn for our Christmas meal.  I just have the one picture of the Inn, we were going to get some others of the area but it was just too darn cold.  After we left there we went and spent the late afternoon with our neighbors.  They gave us some really nice gifts, Ann made some granola, blue cheese salad dressing  (you can't beat homemade on that one) also homemade fruitcake which is really good too.  The bad part is I HAVE to be the one that eats this because DH won't eat this sort of thing.  But I will make the sacrifice ....LOL

Stitching wise I have gotten quite a bit done on my Prairie Schooler Christmas Village, at least I think I have??  I am putting it aside right now and going to go back and finish a sampler that was a freebie on a French site.  No picture as of yet of it I am waiting on the floss to start a picture of paint horses for our groomer.  I have plans to give it to her for next Christmas.  We will see........

Winter Is Here, Holly's First Year And Some Stitching Too

Wow time has really flown!  I can't believe that its been so long since I last posted.  I have been stitching on Prairie Schooler Christmas Village, I was having problems and had ripped out little trees it seemed like a million trees, just to find out the border was what was off!!  Ripped trees for no reason other than one that the border had the placement for the tree in the wrong place......... As you can see I have made a little progress.

Finished an ornament too, now all I have to do is really finish it! LOL  Not my favorite part:)) The ornament was stitched on a Silkweaver fabric that my friend Ruthie sent to me.  It didn't say what the color was but it's 28 count and the picture isn't doing it justice.

Yesterday was Holly's first year with us, it has been a fun year she it a great little cat.  She loves to be held but like all cats wants her alone time too.  If you stop and think about it cats are sort of like people we need to have quiet times too. I took this picture of her this morning and had a hard time getting her to look at me.  Birds on the feeder are a lot more interesting aren't they? LOL
