Happy mother's day!

I want to wish all the mothers out there that follow my blog and that stop by a happy mother's day, for all the mothers out there I hope everyone has a wonderful day! Not sure what I am doing today myself. My guys will be surprising me later. I do have another stitchy update. I have 2 small finishes this week, these I stitched in no time flat. The first one is called my first gray hare by 4 my boys. I did not stitch in the saying my first gray hare though. I decided I would leave that out and figured this would be a lovely Easter decoration for next year, so it is tucked away in storage for next Easter. The next finish was a little saying about Mother's that came from the book words of wit and wisdom by Joan Elliot. I had checked this book out at my library last week and thought this was so cute! Thanks for stopping by!

Finally a stitchy update!

I was able to pick up my stitching again a week and a half ago. The first 2 finishes I did I was able to get each one done in a day because they were so simple. The first one is an Easter ornie by Lizzie Kate, and then the May design from Curtis Boehringer from the 3 for 2 club, I love how this turned out the daisies are such a nice touch I think! Then my last finish was the May barefoot angel from Curtis Boehringer as well. I took a stab at tea staining the fabric for the May angel I have stained more fabric since that looks wonderful I look forward to stitching with that fabric soon.I am feeling much better. I still have the odd moments where I am stiff and wake up pretty darn stiff as well but it works itself out as the day wears on. In between all of my down time of not being able to stitch I have been doing a lot of reading. I finished the book for the book club I am in for April and read 3 other books as well. So far this year with some of my resolutions I am doing good at staying on task! Reading was one of my goals and I have been able to at least read one book a month if nothing else. I have been sticking to my stitching goals also, yea! I have been keeping a few other resolutions as well but still need to improve on others. Now that is is May it is starting to look and feel like it. A lot of warm days here anymore. I think all the changes in the temps though are messing with my youngest cat Bela she has got a nasty cold. I feel like a mom chasing after a toddler with a tissue in my hand so I can wipe her face for her. The antibiotics the vet gave are working good. She still tends to whistle while breathing and sneezes a lot. Poor thing. She wins the sympathy vote with me when she looks at me because of how she sounds. School will be coming to a close soon. June 1 is the last day of school. I found out this week that James is advancing onto the 8th grade. 1 more school year to go before it is those dreaded high school years! As always I want to thank everyone for stopping by and for taking the time to read and leave a comment.
