I have finally managed to get my blog updated with some of my Christmas alphabets by Prairie Schooler that I got done, I got letters D,E,F,G,H and I done as well as a Little House Needleworks design that I got from Mary T. I believe it is called red house in winter. I took a picture of what it looks like on my trees. In my bedroom it is called my Christmas room. All year round, I keep my trees up in there and since these fit into my themes for the bedroom they will be on display at all times for me to see, lol. It is nice to look around my room since I seem to be spending a lot of time in there, so it is nice to see all the things I have done over time. I have been quiet for some time about all of my goings on because I have always tended to be that way mostly because I hate to burden others with my problems for the most part so that is why I keep to myself. So this will be one of those rare times that I am letting it all out so to speak. First off tomorrow, the 22th. I will be spending the day at the hospital with Mike. His parents are having surgery. Mike's dad found a kidney donar in his wife so they both will be going under in the morning and will be in the hospital for a while before coming home. After that many will be helping them out because they will not be able to do a lot for themselves for a little while. So things may be a bit busy. The other thing I wanted to share is that for some time me and Mike have been having issues and since May I have taken to sleeping on the couch and we decided to separate again back in October. We still are apart but have been talking and trying to work on things as well since January in between all that something happened that has floored me in so many ways and has at times been leaving me depressed and so many things in between. I found out at the end of January that I am pregnant. I am about 3 months along now, dealing with being tired and sick and blue at times has made me quiet a lot all around. So hopefully my friends who are reading this will understand why I have become so quiet anymore. So much is going on this year and all the things I had planned are on hold now so everything is going to take a bit of time for me to get used to since this was not planned at all. Mike had a vasectomy years ago but I have heard from so many that it has reversed itself for some men after so long. I have to admit I have my good days and then my days where I am scared of starting over and then blue about starting over since I thought all that was behind me. My son will be 14 in August and later that month be a 9th grader in high school. So it really has been a heck of a winter and spring to say the least. Now on with the pictures! If you have stayed this long to read I appreciate you doing so and for all your kind words about my finishes over time. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

I have a few small finishes to share, I have been not feeling so well so in between resting I have been stitching when I feel up to it. My first finish is by LHN, it is called pine tree hill. I have decided to take up tackling doing the Prairie Schooler Christmas Alphabet. I have done A, B and C. It may take me a while to do these, but seeing as how small they are it will not take too much time to stitch. I know the finishing job leaves soemthign to be desired on the alphabets but seeing as they are just ornaments for my tree they will blend in just fine with everything else on my tree I think. Thanks for all that stops by and take the time to leave a comment, have a wonderful week.

I was hoping to have an update sooner, but I have been sick with a bad cold that is still around a little bit so I spent most of last week in bed because I just felt awful and achy all over. On top of that on Friday last week Ohio got hammered with snow, we had over a foot of snow within a day so I had to go out a few times to shovel the snow, winter is almost over though and soon we will be upon my least favorite part of spring. The beginning of spring it is nothing but cold and wet and muddy all over, by May it looks nice out but first I have to get through the first part of spring. My first finish I had done before I got sick and the picture shows it, lol if you look at the ornament above it will show that this was done last month. This is signs of winter by Bent Creek, I have not worked with perforated paper in some time so I decided to stitch this on that, the picture does not do the finished result justice, my camera is ancient so at times the pictures are not as good as they can be. My other finish is March blows by Bent Creek. I am hoping to have more stitchy finishes soon, I went on a small shopping trip online on Friday at 123stitch.com and already got everything in the mail on Monday. I bought myself the Prairie Schooler book Woodland Santas and lots of floss for my future projects that I want to work on soon! As always thanks for stopping by and for your kind words.
