I'm still here!  I have a new computer and it is not going good!  I'm trying to start back blogging, but it is hard going from Windows Vista  ( if you can figure out how long ago that was) to Windows 10. lol  I just bought the HP tower. I had a new big monitor. Thought the monitor was the problem. Nope it was the computer. It had been worked on so much.. I just decided to crush it and get a new one.  I also got a new printer too. It is wireless, you should have seen me trying to figure out where the cord was to run to the computer.. DUH!  It's wireless.  It has been a day here at the olde homestead...

I have pictures of my finishes to show.. once I get them loaded into the new machine, I will be able to show what I have been doing.  Just bare with me please..  I'm an old dog trying to learn new tricks, or in this case new everything!  lol

Till later....

Edited at 5:35 pm...   I need a new comfortable chair!  My butt is numb... lol    That is all....

I have been lost over in Facebook Land!

Sorry I have been away for so long. I was lost over in Facebook Land. Never a dull moment over there!  lol

I do have some pictures to show of some stitches I have finished.  I will take some pictures and post this weekend.

I'm working on a model for Lori of Notforgotten Farms. It is a fun design is all I can say... You will have to wait. I should be through with it by Friday.

I'm trying to redo my Blogger designand Blogger is not letting me do any advanced changes to the page.. I give up.

Well seeing that it is 1:39 am. I better go to bed. Big day tomorrow. Taking the grandkids clothes shopping for school.

Till this weekend.. Check back for a post full of stitching pictures!

Is anyone ready for Spring? I'm ready!  It is a beautiful sunny day here in Alabama and so warm! It makes me want to do some yard work. Hope everyone enjoyed the Nashville Market releases! I ordered a good bit of new stash. Here are some pictures:

 Hands On Designs - A Year Of Chalk - April. Can't wait to start this one. I will finish it as a interchangeable display. I love the gunmetal linen and the floss colors. A great monthly project to stitch!

 With Thy Needle and Thread Designs. Love all these designs! Brenda released about 11 designs this year for Spring! I already have ideas for the little pinkeeps! 

Then my favorites... I love any charts with animals, so these projects I just had to have! Stacy Nash Designs! That was my mail for today!!! 

I have been busy in the craft studio. I finished some stitching and I went to Michaels (and used my coupons) and came across some frames, well... not frames as a frame, but chalkboards that I saw had other uses..

 This cutie was a chalkboard frame. I removed the chalkboard from the back and made it in a frame for my Shepherds Bush - Spring Lamb. I had stitched this one years ago. I had been looking for just the right frame.  I think I found it. It was a little long, so a added a piece and fabric with burlap trim and a little ribbon. What do y'all think?
Another Chalkboard. This one is an easel. I cut a piece of cardboard the same size as inside of the frame and spray glued some fabric to it. Then I made the flat square with the design. I bought some sticky Velcro and added to the panel and the back of the cross stitch. I can just change out each month. I also can change out the cardboard with another fabric covered cardboard square. It just pops in the frame.  Now I need to start May's design. I love these word plays by WTN&T.

I have more stitching to finish today. I finished 2 pin keeps last night. I stuffed with Lavender. They smell so good. I will be putting them on my sell site - Homestead Needleworkes.  I have a pin drum cut and ready to put together.  So stayed tuned....
Till Later....
