Well.. here I am !

I haven't been on the blogs for 2 months...I've been stitching and keeping very busy with my new way of life and getting  used to living's working out quite well for me.
My friends are keeping me busy and that's a good thing.

Now I must tell you.... Ann of Knowledge and Needles put together a day for my Mom to showcase her stitching and boy oh boy was it nice!! We had a GREAT turn out and I would suggest you have a look at her blog so you can see all of the beautiful work Mom has done over the years.
I was pretty busy for the days before gathering all I could get my hands on..And today I picked up almost all of the rest of it to return. I'll get the remainder on stitching day Thursday!

                         I took a few pics before the croud came but Ann's are much better.
 Mom turned 94 in August and still stitches every day..when she isn't playing cards or reading . She lives in a retirement home and keeps very busy!
 Ann was the hostess for the day and she and Mom are very close! She is a wonderful friend to both of us!
            Rebecca had a stitching weekend and took time out to come and see Mom.
                       Some ladies Mom plays cards with!
         HENRY   the youngest of the Great Grand children
I think the pics tell it all. All in all it was a VERY GOOD DAY .
Thank you Ann and Dan for opening your home to soooo many people!

To all of you out there that have sent greetings to Mom and those of you that took time out  to visit with her and see her works of art..WE THANK YOU!
PLEASE have a look at Anns blog!
Stitch with happy fingers!
I will see you again soon!

Welcome back! I missed seeing you and all the gang this past weekend. This tribute to your Mom was awesome! I didn't realize she had stitched so many pieces. It was really lovely of Ann to set this up and I wish I could have been there to see it all in person.

Your Mother is an amazing person. I hopped over to Ann's blog and saw all the stitching she has done over the years. She has done some really stunning an gorgeous pieces.
