I've added a link to my cross stitch sales bargains to your right. ;) I've done some 'spring cleaning' and am starting to try to 'share' some items I know I will never use. Hope you will find some fun things that will be a bargain for you.

Thanks for stopping by,

Well, here is a picture of the Little House Needleworks "Home of a Needleworker (too)" that I am currently working on:

I am really enjoying it and can't wait to frame it and hang it on my wall, because that's what our house is... "Home of a Needleworker."

:)

Thanks for stopping by.

I keep waiting until I have a pic to post on what I am stitching, but that is just silly. I am working on Little House Needleworks "Home of a Needleworker (too)" I really fell in love with it when I saw other stitchers in the LHN/CCN group post their pictures. I so love cross stitching that I wanted this piece for myself haning on my wall. Designing cross stitch and stitching it brings such pleasure, peace and joy to my life. :)

I am missing so many people in my life. People who are members of my group (KYKS) and my daughters and my mother all of my family. Sometimes I feel so alone. I don't know what I would do if I lost my DH. He was in an accident yesterday. Someone rear-ended him and he is in such pain (from whiplash I would imagine). He slept so poorly last night (it kept us both awake).

I don't even know what to say about life anymore. I have no eloquent words of prayer. I go to God and just say "help." I don't know what else to say. Just help. That and my faith and trust in God lets me believe that he knows what I mean even when I don't.

I love people. I care so deeply about even strangers troubles that they share. It just plain hurts. That's when it came to me that I can be a child and just go to my God, hold out my hand and say... "help".

Thanks for stopping by... God Bless you richly.
love, Cathryn

April 5, 2009

It's Sunday night. I've been stitching on the next SanMan Originals Christmas SAL on an afghan. It is going really quickly so I haven't stitched on it today. We did our shopping today instead of yesterday (groceries) because it was so nice out. We spent most of the day outside. Today there are storm warnings and watches. From one extreme to another. Tomorrow... we are supposed to be really cold and a chance of SNOW! I think mother nature needs professional help!!! Can anyone suggest a good therapist??? LOL

The rainy weather is killing both DH and I! Arthritis is painful when it's wet, cold, and damp!! But we get along with lots of aspirin and sympathy, me for him and him for me! I must admit though, due to the pain we kinda snap at each other. It's a good thing we love each other so much. ;)

Well, Wolfgang is getting nervous and went under the bed. Must be thunder and another storm rolling through so I'd better get off here. Back to Stitching! YES!!!

Thanks for stopping by.
