Happy Saturday!

I successfully got a few stitches in my ABC part of the LHN ABC samplers.  I'm pretty happy with myself.  Slowly but surely I'll get there.

What do you do for fun?  Well, I'd like to invite you  to our next Bingo game at our KYKS group.  All you have to do is join (The link to the group is at the top of the page), go to the Bingo forum, read the rules for our games, choose your picks and forward them to the appropriate individuals.  It's always a lot of fun!!!  Don't miss out this time!!!  :D

Hugs,

Hi All!!!

How's your stitching going?  I'm working on LHN ABC sampler.  Love LHN!!!  I'm afraid I'm in a stitching slump, though, through no fault of many talented designers!

I want to thank you all for attending the Counted Wishes Festival and to the generous people who placed orders during that time.  My little design hobby doesn't sell a great deal, but these orders came at a most opportune time. I hope you enjoy stitching them and please don't forget about my monthly newsletters which always have a freebie in them.  Since the October doodle didn't do well at the festival I'm going to include it in the October newsletter.  You can subscribe to the newsletter here.

Oh yes, and please don't forget about my September giveaway.  There's only a few days left to enter for this great prize!  Rules and post for this giveaway can be seen here.

Have a wonderful week everyone!!!

Hugs,
Cathryn  :D

9-11-2016

15 years later and the horror of that day still haunts us.  I remember driving through McDonalds for a cold drink for DH and I and hearing it on the radio and being in so much shock... well there were just no words.  And it didn't end there and still hasn't.  The repercussions of that day followed for days, months and years after that event.  Some of us still will #NeverForget.


Also let us #NeverForget the horrible tragedy of Benghazi.

Hope Your Labor Day Weekend

is treating you well and you have lots of wonderful plans for fun things to do.  I have some stitching on my list.  That and looking out my pretty window at the pretty zinnias my darling husband planted.  :)

My Blueladie Designs newsletter went out a couple of days ago.  I hope you got yours.  If not, click on my Blueladie Designs website link above and read on the homepage how to subscribe.  (Oh yes, and I've started to include it in the KYKS group too so there's another place to get it without subscribing!  You have to join our group, but it's a lovely group with lots of fun things to do.  Come, join and contribute.  It makes it even more fun!)

Penny, Killer, PJ and Boots (our 4 cats) have taken over the house and made it their personal mess.  You know... fun cat things like knocking everything down on the floor from wherever it was nicely put up.  Also fun to make the furniture scratching posts even though there are appropriate spots for that just for kitties.    I love them dearly... but...  :{   DH thought I needed a cat.  He brought home a pregnant one (unbeknownst to him).  That cat (Penny) had 4 kittens.  We were able to find a good home for 1 of them, but the other 3 remained and now I'm too attached.  My last cat lived for 19 years so I'm afraid these cats will outlive me.   :(

It's a very pleasant 57*F here this morning.  My coffee tastes especially good and it's a peaceful with most (just DH really) of the household still asleep.  The cats of course are into something new every time I go to the kitchen for coffee.  :)

DH went dove hunting yesterday and the day before he went and last night when he got home he was in a great mood.  It was such a relief because lately we've had Murphy and his law staying with us.  (You know... whatever can go wrong does.)  Which makes for a grumpy DH.  So I hope his improved mood will last another few days.  Maybe the cooler weather will help, although I hear we're in store for a few more 90*ones next week.  :(

Well, I have a few things to do before I can stitch.

Take care y'all.  Be good to yourselves and to one another.

Just Asking...

If any of you know of someone who could knit a prayer shawl.  I'm not sure if it's for a man or a woman yet, but I've been asked so I'm passing along the question to you.  If you know of anyone or would be willing to do it, please contact me at my email.

Thanks so much for considering this.
Also prayers would be appreciated for a special couple going through some trying times.  Thank you.

hugs & prayers,
Cathryn
