I Feel Like Frosty the Snowman

Country Rustic Primitives

Olivia making sure I don't pass by without petting her

The stitching is long finished

One of six Valentine stitches
5 freebies and one of my own

Terrible photo of a favorite design
by Notforgotten Farm

I'm having some health problems
good thing I'm a homebody 
still having tests to get diagnosis

Right now they are calling it exercise hypoxia
basically if I move my oxygen level goes down
so I'm on oxygen, tethered to the machine
I have portable 02 for when I need to leave the house
for Dr appointments and tests

I feel fine with the oxygen
as long as I don't do anything strenuous.

Felling like Frosty the Snowman?
I'll be back again some day.

Penny Tree Farm
 a photo from earlier today
stitching much farther along
of course I'm changing colors
and the rabbit will be a cat


Hope you're all having a great day
grateful my sisters in Florida and North Carolina are fine
I could never live on the coast
would much rather deal with cold and snow

Crows in Loops and Stitches

finally a rug off the frame
I started this one in late June I think
darn cross stitch got in the way

26 x 12
pattern available on Dorr linen
$50 shipped

a few mistakes 
led to fudging and I love it!
I stitch 1 over 2 on 32 count
makes for an older look I think

design by Homespun Elegance
October Crow House


Hope everyone is having a good week.
It went from hot
to unseasonably cool here. I'm fine with that. 

This morning I picked up a carload of containers
from my friend Bea's house
it's almost empty
her son was there to pack the car
He's in his mid 70s
He'd rather be golfing 

Bea's house is almost empty
soon to be for sale

Right now, she is in the hospital
went in yesterday with weakness and heart issues
she's 98 
 ready to join her husband
emptying her house of treasures
has really broken her heart

I'll pop in and see her tomorrow

Halloween Stitching

someone got carried away with those pumpkins!
I combined 2 Pineberry Lane patterns

Winter Sampler 

by Birds of a Feather

this will be tea dyed

there are cream snowflakes

I chose to use one color instead of the two called for

the bottom area is very personalized

 more Pineberry Lane stitching
I absolutely love her


time to clean up my stitching mess
so I can do some hooking and finishing

Happy Gorgeous Weather !
