The Room!!!

As is my usual routine, I've been cleaning before the next big trip. It's in May. Today my friend came over and we tackled the ROOM!  Thank goodness my church is having a garage sale in June.  I have someplace to take the "goodies" I no longer want or need!  We're pooped.  Gee, wouldn't want to do it all in one day.  What would I have to look forward to? LOL!  Just look what we cleared out today.  That doesn't even begin to make a dent!! I'm ashamed of myself.  My friend said to me that I could not buy anymore "treasures" after I'm finished with cleaning.  You know, right now I don't want to. 

I haven't been stitching, been too busy cleaning. Soon I'll stitch again.  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Hoe Prairie Schooler for Lily

I completely forgot to post the HoE Prairie Schooler ornament I made for Lily.  She received it and said she liked it.  I like this little design and have stitched it a couple of times. 

Well, I am in the process of my annual "before the big trip" clean fest.  Being a year older has it's disadvantages.  I poop out alot faster.  I am making some progress though.  My church is having a garage sale in June, so I am also donating alot of my treasures to the cause.  I'm tired of dusting around "things", so out they go. 

I've been awake since around 1:00 this morning.  Now I am getting sleepy at the time I need to be getting up!   Guess I had cleaning on my mind! Gotta get it done. Not really. 

We've been having really cool weather this week.  Maybe summer won't get here too fast.

Off for a small nap.  Enjoy your day.

HoE Prairie Schooler from Ellen

Ellen gifted me this dapper fellow for her HoE Prairie Schooler exchange piece.  Stitchers who know me, well know that I do love Prairie Schooler.  Ellen said he is the Nutcracker from PS's Mini Card Series.  She also included some lovely cotton trims, of which I can certainly use.  Thank you so much Ellen.  He is very welcome into my home!

I haven't done much on the stitching front this week.  You know how it goes, sometimes you just don't have the oompf to pick up a heavy needle! LOL!

My cousin and his wife from Alaska have been visiting my mom, so I've been spending time with them.  They are getting me all excited about my Alaskan cruise next month.  They live near Ketchikan and are going to meet me there when the ship docks.  I'll be getting a personal tour of the town and area.  I have another cousin in Juneau.  She is meeting me at the ship there and going to give me a tour of that area.  What a fantastic way to see two towns.

Guess I'd best get my day started.  Have a great Thursday.

Birthday wishes for my Sister

Today is my middle sister's birthday.  I stitched up this little design to mark the occasion.  It's an adaption of The Sampler Girl's design "Oh Mother Dear Cupboard Sampler."  I used a 32ct natural linen and the DMC optional threads since I didn't have any of the called for threads.  I happened on the keys at Michaels the other day, so I bought them.  I think it turned out great.  Oh, and Happy Birthday Terresa!!

Spring exchange from Julianne

I received this little bunny egg from Julianne yesterday.  We met through an exchange group and have become stitching  buddies.  She always seems to know what I'm thinking about stitching for myself when we do our private exchanges.  This design is from Prairie Schooler's "Just Hatched".  Thanks so much "J".  I love it!!
