Better late than.......

I am happy to be say that I finally started Trick or Treat Fairy although not on monday as planned......Some how the week got away from me and just got to stitch a little tonight. I have the floss toss that won...it 32ct Crystal Flash by PTPlus . There are 2 pics of it.... and It is a light apricot in color. I thought of doing it on darker fabric but this fabric won my heart! And next up is a picture of Cinderella Sampler.....it's on a 36ct SIlkweaver Solo... Sorry about the creases but I took it off the qsnaps for the picture! I am truly loving this !! Hopefully I will have a progress picture of ToTF next post!

Now I'd like to send out Happy Birthday wishes to Karen and Michelle who both have birthdays this week!!!!!! So Happy Birthday and I wish for you all that your hearts desire and then some!!!!!!


I went to the Red Rock overlook and just sat and talked with my sister this week. I really feel her presence there. It's an amazing place to go and it feels so right to talk with her there. I've written of my sister before so I won't go on about her now but somehow when I'm there I know she's listening. I plan to go again tomorrow!!!!! Here's a picture I took sometime last year... It's an amazing place!


I did manage to get my oil change done and a myriad of other "needed" things done like the radiator and transmission fluid changed and all the other fluids topped off and a good bath for my car since that's the car we'll be driving to Disneyland next tuesday morning...DH wants to leave before dawn.......ugh!!!!


I also stopped into TJMaxx and did really well......2 pairs of nice jeans that actually fit and 3 tops along with a pair of cute sandals.....all for an insanely low price!!!!! So I'm set for Disney and beyond! Well I'm off to bed since stitching group is just a few hours away...... Then after that it's another Pilates workout and dinner with a friend! I am planning on 4 Pilates sessions this week! I feel really good and have 3 sessions to makeup......And I am also commiting to start running again beginning on Sept 1st!!!!!! I really loved running when I lived in NY.....it's time for just me and my thoughts...nothing ever seemed too serious or insurmountable when I was running.


I am grateful for my life...........

  4. I just love the cinderella sampler you are doing and that looks like a wonderful piece of fabric for TOT, I can't wait to see your progress on it. How peaceful to find such a tranquil place where you can speak with your sister. I also live in a desert area and it's nice to get out to the isolated places sometimes.

  9. Your Cinderella Sampler is so lovely.

    Love your fabric choice for your Trick or Treat fairy. Can't wait to see how that comes along.

    A few posts back you showed a new HAED. You said it reminded you of LOTR. I soooooo agree. That is immediately what I thought of before I even read what you had written about it. That scene is so beautiful, yet haunting and sad at the same time.
