Moving on - the weather today (and what the weatherman assures me will continue) is not conducive to taking photos. With that in mind - Paula please accept my apologies because I can not get your fob to show up correctly without sunlight!
Here's the story - a few weeks ago I entered Paula's birthday giveaway. And being the gracious blogger that she is - gave something to everyone who responded to her post! I got A Stoney Creek Cross Stitch magazine that has tons of patterns I want to do. Tons! The front cover has a pattern showing tree leaves in the fall - This one will be done - it's perfect for the tree hugger side of me! And I got a fob - it reminds me of a charm bracelet. Many danglies - I love the charms - an angel, apple, stork scissors, silk cord on a bobbin, spinner, stars, and the words Dream and Wish. She then wrote out what each charm means - the angel is my guardian angel watching over my stitching etc. Very cool - the next time the sun shines - I'll get a pic and show you!
With the aid of the daylight lamp and the camera's flash I did get some pics of my latest finish - number 15!

I have worked on another project and the progress is not stunning, but I did put stitches thru cloth!
I just added some sweet potato on October last night. This picture looks creepy - like blood dripping down - eek!
And One Nation - This project is H-U-G-E! I can't get it into one picture for the life on me -
It's fun but those long straight lines are boring. I stitch a line, do a star, work on lettering and repeat. I think that's why I worked on a pumpkin in April last night. lol
Tomorrow I am checking something off my bucket list - if the weather cooperates I should have some neat pics for the next post. There will be a story without a doubt.
Sunday - I'm taking the kids out to lunch and then a movie. My sister had Easter dinner last weekend. Easter is a hard holiday for me - my Grandpa died 27 years ago. Today is the actual anniversary but I've always associated the two events. And tomorrow is 3 months for Dad.
I think he would be happy with my plans for tomorrow though - I hope so.
Might not post before Sunday. May you have a blessed Easter holiday.
