This is for an exchange. It is my
first time finishing something into
a triangle. The fabric was a gift
from Carol at Stitching Dreams.
The last day of the month and I have
another finish.May everyone have
a blessed April.

Amanda's 21st Birthday.

We had a great dinner at Daniel in NYC.
I forgot to bring my camera. Its hard
to believe it was snowing out on 3-23-11.
It was a dining experience and the kids
will be sure to remember it. Happy Birthday

Finished Prairie Schooler - Thanksgiving Comes Again





Pattern By ThePrairie Schooler
Thanksgiving comes again. Book 141
I finally finished this large piece. It took
so long to do. With all the work changes, just
have had a hard time fitting in stitching time.
This is a beauty and will be off to the framer
next week. Happy 21st Birthday Amanda.
Will post pictures of her dinner tomorrow.

Lizzie Kate Easter Sampler completed





Pattern by Lizzie Kate
Sampling Easter Q-005
I cannot believe it has almost been a month
from my last post. I have been stitching but
haven't had time to finish and post. I have
been working the same schedule in work for
over 7 years. My supervisor left to go to another
department and they split our group up. Rather
then be thrown to the wolves I chose a supervisor
i have known for years. The hours are the same
but my days off are different. I used to be off
thursday, friday and sunday. Now my days off
are Sunday, tuesday, and wednesday. Don't
get excited, I work 10 1/2 hour shifts 4 days
a week. It has only been a couple of weeks and
I am still adjusting. I don't even know what day of
the week it is sometimes. On top of that I have been
working a ton of over time, sometimes working two
weeks straight with no day off. When the nice
weather is here - NO MORE OVERTIME- life is to
short. This piece was fun to work on. I adore the
spring colors. The fabric is so cute. Bunnies that
sparkle. The buttons make the piece. I have been
working a bigger piece and hope to be done next week.
I have been visiting blogs but do not have the time
right now to leave comments on all of them. When
i am back in the groove I will feel much better.
On a bright note, My oldest baby will be 21 on March
23. It is hard to believe she will be 21. I am taking
her and my other kids to one of the best restaurants
in NYC. I will post pictures and details. I will be
buying her the very first drink because she asked
me to. I guess it is an honor, but I am a person who may
have maybe one glass of dessert wine a year. I am not
a drinker. I am excited and I worked hard all year.
I want to give her something she will remember the
rest of her life and this dinner will do the trick. I
appreciate all of your comments and truly
enjoy all of my bloggers.
