Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies!~ I hope you all are doing well and having a lovely start to your day! Yesterday I mentioned about my neighbor getting shot. I do hope that he is doing well but there is more to this story . There has been shady activity going on there for years and after things that we have seen and heard throughout the time we've lived here, we're really not surprised that it happened. When there is all kinds of different cars coming by day and night that only stay 5 minutes or less ,it doesn't take a body long to figure out what is going on. About 3 weeks ago , we had to call the police ourselves because my husband found drug parafanailia in our trash can outside. They were pretty sure where it had come from. Now before you all ask me why we haven't moved, we have thought of that many many times. When we start to get some money set aside something always comes up. The refridgerator goes out , can't be fixed and has to be replaced, the car brakes down , and so forth and there goes the savings. I'm sure lots of you can relate. Hopefully one day though. Stranger things have happened right?
Moving on....I've done it again! I started another project before finishing another! I like the bell pull, it wasn't boring me or anything like that. It's just that I was going through my stash this past weekend looking for another pattern and ran across another one that I've had for awhile and just couldn't shake wanting to start it. It is Joy in the Journey from Diane Williams before Little House Needleworks was birthed. This was back when she was doing some designing for Leisure Arts. This design is so cute and I just can't wait until it is done so I can get it up and framed. I don't have a spot picked out yet , but I'll find one!
Speaking of Diane Williams and Little House Needleworks, does anyone have LHN's Psalm 145 that they would be willing to loan me or swap for LHN's Winter Whites ? I would take extra good care of it and would stitch you something in return. The last one I borrowed ,I didn't keep for very long at all. My budget is pretty tight and I just can't spend extra on more stash right now and would really like to stitch it.
Well my sister is in town from Wisconsin and will be leaving bright and early in the morning so I'm not sure if I will get any stitching done today or not. We only see her a couple of times a year and sometimes just once, so I think I can put the stitching down for a bit! I should have taken a picture of her yesterday while she was here to put on the blog, but she hadn't showered yet and put on make up and all of that. You know how we women are! :)
Don't forget, if you haven't entered the drawing yet , you can do so HERE .
That's it for me. I need to get off of here and put some laundry in. Kinda getting things backwords today,I'm supposed to put my laundry in first thing in the a.m. Shhh...don't tell Flylady!!
'till next time,
Don't be a stranger,
