Ice Cream Sundae

This is my latest finish. It was a really quick stitch. It is Ice Cream Sundae by Country Cottage. I substituted the light green for a DMC color that I already had. The fabric is mystery fabric. I got it out of my fabric bin. sorry for the wrinkly photo.

Where is my Needle????
It appears that I have lost my very favorite needle. I went to visit a friend in the hospital the other night and pulled out my stitching while I was there. Evidently my needle flew off of my project. I do remember my fibers getting caught and I guess the needle got pulled out. Why was this needle more special than any other needle? This needle was a $5.00 Mardina needle. It absolutely was my favorite. I had less trouble threading it with its teeny tiny eye than I do a regular needle. If anyone has one they don't want because they don't like it you can sure pass it on to me!

I can't seem to put a title on this post but just in case it is "Saturday Stuff!"

My week has been pretty hectic.

First of all on Tuesday evening my mom came home. They missed the plane in Houston so had to take a later flight. They finally made it home around 10 ish and we got to the house around 11.

Then on to Wednesday. I stayed in my pajamas forever just laying around the house. I didn't feel like doing anything! I was so tired. In the afternoon me, my friend Jann and her husband went to the movies to see Ratatouille. It was OK. I know it was a Disney movie but seemed more childish than most. Oh gosh, I forgot my friend Theresa went too. How could I forget a friend like that?? Then my mom and I went to eat at the Piccadilly after. I was going to go to my friend Karen's camp after the movie but when we got out it was raining and it was getting late and I had to work the next day.

So on to Thursday. The day was good and bumping along just fine until that evening. I got off a whole 10 minutes early and went home to settle in to a nice evening of stitching when there was a knock at my door. My grandmother had walked over and said that her pacemaker had stopped working. Well, I called my mom and she ended up taking her to the hospital to get it checked out. I was a little worried (more on that later) but knew that if she was in the hospital they could check her out. She turned out OK and everything checked out good. Her blood pressure was a little on the high side but I think she had worked herself up.

The reason why I was worried is because my family has a July curse. Everyone that has died in my family has died in the month of July therefore, I hate to see it coming. That is a shame because it is such a good month.

Friday was a busy day at the store. I love days like that but it wears me out. My friend Kaye was in the hospital for some med testing so Karen and I went to see her Friday night. When I came home I made some cookies but something happened to them. I am not sure if it was the brown sugar, the flour, or the baking soda. They don't seem to taste sweet and the mix was too dry and they crumble. I love to bake but am not very good at knowing what to do to fix the problem.

Today I hope we are busy too. I don't have any plans for the afternoon when I get off. I started Ice Cream Sampler by Country Cottage. I may just go home and stitch....imagine that!

Have a great weekend.

Anyone, Anyone??

For some time now I have been getting the travel bug. If anyone wants to go anywhere just let me know. I am going to take some time off this fall. Not a long time, maybe just some long weekends.

My mom comes home tonight Yay!! I know she drives me crazy sometimes but she has been gone 2 weeks now and there is lots to catch up on.

I found out my dad's sister has been diagnosed with lung cancer that has now spread to her brain. More on that later when I get more information.

Cinderella, I mean Sleeping Beauty

She is done!
This is the latest installment of the Mirabilia RR. Did you see that new Mirabilia? I do like her and since I am a November baby I think I will have to get her just because.
Now, what do I work on next or do I want to start something new? No, I don't want to do Queen of Freedom or Lily of the Valley.

Memorable Day

Today is the anniversary date of my dad's death. It is 6 years now. I am not sad today just reflective.
I just got back from picking up some new luggage that we sell in our store. It was delivered to my rep's house so I went to pick out what I wanted.
My uncle came to visit my grandmother today so I think we are fixing to go to eat lunch somewhere. My mom still isn't back yet.....3 more days. I am glad she is off having fun.
