A new beginning - Good Morning Monday

Everyone always hates Monday's.  I thought maybe if I welcome it like a Friday - give it some items to look forward to - I may not hate it so much.  Maybe the first Monday of the month I will change the item I am working on as far as Cross Stitch and Crochet.  We will see how it goes.

Stitchy stuff:

Right now I am working on a patriotic type Granny Square crochet blanket to send with my oldest daughter to England.  At the moment of this writing she is to be leaving Dec 5th to be with her husband in England for 6 months.  Pretty exciting for her - even though she hates planes and has never been on one, she is doing it to be with her hubby.  Maybe by the time her 6 months is over all of his paperwork will be done and he will be an American citizen.  It is looking really pretty so far.  Hope it gets done in time to send with her.


I signed up for a blog give-away - which is why I started this blog, but I have been wanting to start a blog for awhile - so thought this would be a good reason to start.  The blog that is doing the give away is Fabulous Frogger - . She has a really nice site and some really pretty Cross Stitch Works in Progress (WIPS).

I started two new Heaven and Earth Design (HAED) projects.  One is the new mini format that Michele is offering - he is Simiyar - he is very pretty :)


and the other is full size and it is Tarot of Dreams which has lots of imbedded items to see pop up while stitching - hoping that it will keep me motivated. 


Family Stuff:

My youngest daughter is graduating from College this December, so we have a lot to do to get ready for that.  Invitations need to be sent out to those who will not see the invite on Facebook.  House needs to be spiffied for the Open house. 

Also, like I mentioned in my Stitchy Stuff - my older daughter is heading to England in December to be with her hubby.

We are hoping to get new carpet by the time we have the open house for my youngest daughter which opens a whole new can of "I have a lot on my plate".

Well until next time.  Happy Stitching~!


  1. Sounds like you have a busy year-end coming up. I just had my graduation ceremony so I know how it goes. Have you ordered announcements yet? I ordered really nice blank ones online and printed my own (Only cost me $35!). Good luck with your stitching and other projects!

  2. Safe trip to your daughter! Hope you get the afghan done for her to take. Congratulations to your youngest daughter! I graduate January 22 and can't wait!

  3. Wohoo you started a blog. It's making stalking uh I mean being your friend easier haha. Seriously I love blogs. You'll find it's nice to look back and see what you forgot.

  4. I will enjoy watching your progress on your HAEDs.
