Mother’s Day week-end and Mondays

Mother’s Day week-end the best ever!

Saturday spent the day visiting….




And the best canvas of the day went to Judi M. visiting her sister Kathie Q. The canvas is from Julie Pischke ( a stitch guide was designed by Marlene Doak.    It is a Gecko tote and just too cute; those geckos are wonderful. And then of course when I finally set down to stitch (ha-ha-ha) I saw the rest of the canvas. Oh my BIG and cute!!!

Sunday was a food fest…My husband took me to for cinnamon rolls and coffee then it was off to church with our youngest son and his family. Got an orchid corsage from his family…the orchids are beautiful. Then brunch at an Italian Restaurant I have wanted to try for a long time; I had pasta, pasta and more pasta. An afternoon with ice tea, a book and nap…some of my favorite pastimes…then a steak dinner to top off my day. Mother’s Day was good.

Of course I have no idea what happened to Monday…it just came and went…with A LOT of HEAT I might add. I have decided that the weather in the Midwest is different at best. I am not going to complain about the heat…especially since there are friends that are in much more peril than I and trying to keep dry. I finally gave in last night and turned my air on but trust me when the temperatures go back to normal the air is off and the windows and doors back open. I will not miss Spring!

Oh yes, yesterday I spent my day researching laidwork. Most of the information is found in books about Goldwork or metal work. I’m not sure I just didn’t confuse myself more than I was already confused. Now I have about 10 books with book marks all over my work area…I think I’ll just give this a rest, mull over all the information floating around my brain and stitch. Maybe as I stitch some of the questions I have will resolve themselves or become more apparent. I’ll share as time goes on, but today I’m off to stitch.

I hope everyone has time to stitch today! ttfn…sue

Mother’s Day

 The Three reasons I get to celebrate today.

And no matter how old you are, you are still my baby(s) and I can remember each day these pictures were taken like it was yesterday. I love each of you more than you will ever know.

Scott, you are the oldest and every time you did something it was a first for Dad and I. You taught me how to be a mother. Thank you.

Hugh, you are the middle child…I heard middle children compared to the filling of a sandwich. And you are the filling of our family…never a hum drum filling either, something different every day. Thank you.

Edward, you are “my baby”, my last son or as your brothers referred to you, “The Chosen One”. We thought you were the easiest to raise…we’d done it all before. How wrong we were! You kept us on our toes and kept us young…Thank you!

No matter how old you are, you are still my baby(s) and…

I love each of you very much!

Happy Mother’s Day to All and…I hope everyone has time to stitch today! ttfn…sue

Happy Mother’s Day!

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and I want to wish all Mother’s a Happy Day. May you spend it, doing just what you like to do best. I envy all of you who will have time to stitch, I might get to put a stitch or two in tomorrow evening if I am lucky.

We are celebrating with a graduation (one of three) with one of our Grandsons, a daughter-in-law’s birthday, another Grandson’s birthday and Mother’s Day. Family is important and I take great pride in the fact that if I were not a Mother none of this would be happening in my life.

Happy Mother’s Day!
