Finally A Stitching Update!!

It has been quite a few weeks, even months, since I have done any cross stitching. My mojo must have been on vacation, lol!  Well, I am happy to report that my mojo has made a return and I have managed to get some real stitching time in this past week.

This is one of my 2011 Crazy January Challenge starts. I don't think that I have worked on it since January of 2011. I stopped with only the birds head outlined, part of the wings outlined and a couple of rows of the bird's breast completed.  Wish I had thought to take a before picture of this but I didn't.

Here it is after this week's stitching progress!

Feather Your Nest
With Thy Needle and Thread
32 ct linen; DMC threads; stitched over 2
I am pleased with my progress. There wasn't much time for stitching but any progress made is good.  With some dedication, I should be able to get this one finished this year!

Blessings and Happy Stitching!

Great Family Weekend!

It was such a great weekend!  We all got together to attend the State Fair on Saturday...what a beautiful and fun day it was!

What should we see first?

There was a great petting barn for the children to have a chance to touch and feed the sheep, goats and pigs and other farm animals...The grand-daughters really loved this area...grandma really did too!

Owen and Elyssa...can we take it home grandma!?!

Elyssa and Owen...beautiful girls!

Owen and grandma!

There were some chickens and bunnies to see in the animal pavilion...

Elyssa loved the rabbits

And of course there were tractors to see...

All in all it was a fun day filled with memories to cherish!
