In Memory of Boomer






In Memory of boomer
We got boomer when the kids were small.
We didn't receive her as a puppy, so
Estimating she was about two when we got
her.  She was roughly 19 years old.
Amanda, Chris and & Alyssa grew
up with her.  A full bred Jack Russell,
she was solid muscle. She was fast as
can be and in her younger years she
used to escape all the time.  I can't
remember how many times we picked her
up from the pound.   Each year she
got a stocking at christmas.  You
can see her with a candy cane in one of
the pictures.    I know it was a 
hard day for all the kids to say goodbye.
She entered the gates of heaven in Peace today.
We all love you boomer.

Celebrations and cross stitch

 We had a celebration with Terry McCoy
for finishing "The Cat" that took
4 1/2 years.  Cake, food, cross stitch,
lots of fun.
From the bottom row from the left:
Deb, Sue, Me(Cindy) right in from of the cat,
and Lindsey.
Back row from the left:
Donna, Paige, Barbara, Judy,
Terry, Marie , next to marie terry's
sister and daughter, Darlene, and Karen.
I coupe of people missing from the group.

I framed this piece myself.
I don't do a lot of frames but
I need to start. I really like how
it looks.  The grey wood frame
was on sale for 6.99.
The pattern is by Lizzie Kate
from seasons - Summer.  Love the colors

I have wanted to do this pattern for a long time.
By CCN
Snowmen Trio
They are so cute and enjoyed doing this piece.
Blogger giving me an awful time uploading
pictures,  the fabric on the back matches so well.
I added the silver snowflake charm.

I didn't get to post pictures of my harvest luncheon
which was a great success.  Food, Fun, stitching.

Happy Stitching everyone.

2nd JCS 2014 ornament finish and Mr. Holly Jolly

 The second ornament from the 2014 JCS
ornament isssue is finished.  Faith by
Nikyscreations.  I changed some of the colors.
I added the charm in place of the heart.
 I finished into a pillow and added lace trim.
A simple stitch, but it reminds of a victorian 
piece.   I hope everyone is enjoying the fall
season.  Much cooler here today.  55 degrees.
It will be in the 70s the next couple of weeks.
I will be hosting a harvest lunch on saturday
for the stitching group i belong to.  Pictures
to follow.


 Lizzie Kate - Snow friends.  I call him
Mr. Holly Jolly, he makes everyone smile
when they see him.  Really pretty colors.
Sure to bring a smile during the winter
months.  I added the snowflake charm.
