What I’m Working On….

I had a busy week.  I’ve been working hard to get caught up on writing blog posts.  I’m a gal that blogs ahead meaning I write the blog posts and then schedule them out.  That way I can be gone for a weekend and not have to worry that there won’t be a blog post there for you to read.  Before Kramer got sick I always had many scheduled in advance.  As of late, I’ve not as I used up so many of the scheduled posts when Kramer got sick.  I am finally getting close to being back where I was at and it feels so good.  Thanks to Kelli and to Kayla for writing a couple and helping me out.

But..onto the crafting side of what I got done.  I got LOTS and LOTS of flying geese pieces done and I finished up all of the letters of the alphabet for Georgia’s baby quilt.

I trimmed the letters all up so they are 8″ in height.  I started sewing them together.  So far, I really like them.

Next week’s goal is to get the flying geese together so I can make a big heart with them.  We’ll see.  This is all improv in my head so things don’t always workout as planned.

I’ve had so many people write to me or comment that they bought a wool mat and are loving it.

I’m still loving mine too.  So many have said that they agree that this mat isn’t stinky like some of the others.  I thought I best add the code and instructions to get the 15% discount in case you didn’t order one yet.  The code ends August 15th so if you’re ordering order soon.

Put the mat in your cart
-Once you go to checkout there will be a box to put in a promotion code or coupon.
-When you are there plug in this coupon code:  JOS15OFF

It is for 15% off from July 15th to the end of the day on August 15th.

Now back to my crafting for the week…I also got some to cross stitch a couple nights.  I did more crafting this week than I have in a long time.

Friday night I finished this…
These are the Sheep Virtues from Little House Needleworks.  This is #7 of the series.  I started stitching this at the last couple appointments before Kramer passed away.  I ended up letting it set for awhile and finally came back to it.

Next up in the series is “Wisdom”.  I’ll start that one sometime in the near future.
Saturday night I was determined to cross stitch too.  I only have about 45 minutes and didn’t want to start anything new so I pulled out this project that I started about the time Kramer died.  I stitched and watched Priscilla and Chelsea on Youtube.

As I was watching and stitching they announced their winners…one of the winners was NELL.  My friend and blog reader.  How cool was that?  I had to text her and tell her congrats.  How fun.

Sunday morning I had company.  I sat and visited and stitched.  I ended up getting pretty far on the little project.

So that’s what I was up to this week in the stitching and sewing department.  I think that’s about the biggest amount of time I’ve had as of late.  I’m hoping I can get some time in this week too.  We have a wedding and a family get together this weekend so I’m not too hopeful for stitching time.  We’ll have to see.

  1. Its nice to be able to stitch and visit at the same time. Love reading your blogs and miss when I dont see it daily. Thanks for all you do.

  2. I bought one of the mats, I haven’t used a wool mat before and I’m finding the smell off it gives me a headache. If these are low odour then I’m glad I didn’t by any others!

    I started watching Midsomer Murders from the beginning when I was playing a computer game I love but at the time didn’t need much concentration. My husband came home from work early and he enjoyed the end of the one I was watching so now we are only watching in the evening. So much for me getting some sneaky viewing in!

    I love the way Georgia’s quilt is coming together.

    I really like your blog. Its the only one I have ever followed. I admire you and your family for perseverance through some trying times. You are to be admired by many. How fortunate your family is to have you as the role model and female head!

    The link for the ironing mat/pad does not work. Can you resend it, please?

    Also, some time ago you put a chocolate cake on your blog that your family loves. If I remember right, your son/son in law had refined the recipe and that was the one you posted. What I remember was that he said it was done when you could smell the cake. Can you repost that also please?

    Thank you.

  4. Georgia’s quilt is progressing nicely. I’m sure she will treasure it. So happy you are back to crafting. Something about crafting soothes the soul.

    Love, hugs and prayers coming your way.
