Odds and Sods

I've had a good week..did some interesting things and have kept pretty busy.

I went to Micheal's and bought 6 cubes (@ 40% off each) for my stitching things...the cubes come in a box and you have to build them. each one took about an hour...not hard to do just time consuming building all the drawers.Yikes  Good thing I like baseball.It was easy to listen to while I built!
Now I have to sort through my things and fill the shelves and drawers.
I love the way they look!

On Sunday I was involved with singing in the park in Picton On.
 I took my Mom with me so we would have an audiance..surprise.. there were at least 150 people there.  NICE!
Doesn't Mom look great? Her birthday is in 3 weeks she'll be 94.
Some photo's to share with you.

Not much stitching this week, only the CdC and I'll show it next time.

Have a good week and stitch with happy fingers.!

On Saturday Lynn hosted a stitching day for our stitching friends. 12 ladies showed with food and treats and drinks and much stitching.
Please go to her blog to see the best photo's...I do have some that are pretty good. we had such a good time.
It was a 3 hour drive for Kathy and It but was worth every moment. Kathy and I got six hours of quality visiting during the drive.

Alls well !

I have had the worst time with my computer....It  finally Crashed...yup Crashed ! I lost everything...oh ...not my photos I had them on discs thank goodness for that.

It seems that could be the reason I had so much problems with the comments and uploading.
Who knows anyway. .. I now have a new hard drive and all my programs are reloaded and we will try this again.
I had 4 Trojans and 2 viruses
I also have a new antivirus so I hope all is well.

Now about the stitching in the mean time I was able to spend some time on that.

This is a Halloween piece 
Black Cats and Flying Bats
Blue Ribbon designs

Next I stitched the eyes on this hand towel for my bathroom.
The pattern is in a mag that a friend loaned me.
The towel was given to me from a friend (Angie)at my group. she bought it at a yardsale and thought of my bathroom.
The lady (Judy) she bought it from is in our group as well and loved the results. Now she can come and visit her towel any time she wants.  LOL
Remember Ink Circles CdC ?
here is a close up of the verigated thread on the navy.


                                                                                    Hmmm table cloth is showing through.. it is white.

Not the greatest photos but you get the idea.
This is a RR we are doing at our Thursday group. Barb is the owner of this one . I had my pig tails dipped in ink as a kid so this was definitely mine to do.

So as you can see I've been stitching.
I hope you are all  having a wonderful summer,  and Stitch with happy fingers.
