I would LOVE to have update pics to show... But i am STILL not stitching. I attempted to stitch this week first night input 7 counted them ... 7 stitches in a piece an ornament. OMG... i felt my brain and body relax. Soo the next evening after dinner i sat to stitch... I stitched for 10 minutes solid. Oh boy i was in TROUBLE. My arm was hurting... And swelled like. Crazy... I could barely move it for the pIn. Then the pressure started in my mid arm... I was sooo frustrated... And almost ready to cry. I am so tired of it hurting. I want to stitch... And allow mind to work... My brain needs to be busy.
I am ready blogs and seeing so many neat things... And possible future projects for me to do.
Take care all. Hope life send you each MANY blessings.

Hello all.. Not as if i am even stitching... But i am in LOVE with this chart... and am struggling with shops being able to get it. One person has told me is was a SAL from a few years back that i will have to buy used. I have been searching EBAY high and low for this and a few BOAF charts and have had absolutely NO LUCK.
Does anyone out there have a used sal copy they are selling that i may be able to buy? I just love this mermaid. I have never stitched a chart by this designer and know nothing about them... How are the charts and designs to stitch? I am silly to even be looking when i can not stitch for several weeks yet... But i just fell in love with this when i saw it.
Thank you for looking for me.

Wednesday April 29th i had the surgery on my elbow. It was for tennis elbow that i have been treating for near 2 years now. I have since found out that the surgery was way more involved. The surgeons have told me that the tendon was near torn off. They went in for a tendon release... Ended doing a tendon re structure surgery. The have cleaned and cleared the elbow... And stretched the tendon and tacked it to the back of my elbow... All I can say is...OUCH!!!!! This has been the most painful surgery I have ever had. They are telling me that I am going to be taking more time to heal... But they will have to see how therapy goes. I am scared to do much with it... I am afraid that it will be hurt. I have no grip and I have to still think hard to get my fingers to move and my hand to grip and release. It is almost scared. The pain is the worse part... Omg... It is extreme. I was told it was painful.... But did not imagine this.

Last year my dd gave me tickets for me and her to go to see The Lion King when it came to Cincinnati. We went on Opening night... This was the best performance i have ever seen.. It was magical... It was breath taking and it was so emotional for me. In the opening and the circle of life formed and the larger animals assembled onto the stage thru the audience... Tears formed and i was near a full cry it was just amazing. I would gladly go again and again... To see this show. Amazing voices ... Humor well played... I just had the very best time. Some of the pics u may have to click to open... For some reason they are not auto correcting like they usually do.

I dont even know where to begin ... The night of Super Bowl the DH watched the game and felt odd... He was sick from around 11 and by 6 am we were headed to the ER. Around 1 that day a dr came into our room to tell us he had a blockage in his intestines where the small and large connect. They had also found a suspicious places in the CT scan on his liver. They had suspected cancer. By 7 pm he was in surgery had a bowl resection and a liver biopsy. The surgeon stated that it was cancerous as far as she could see. Two days later her knowledge was confirmed... He has a carcinoid cancer that has metastasized to his liver. We now have been to Columbus Oh at the James Cancer research center to see a Carcinoid cancer specialist. It is a slow moving cancer but is not curable. We have to see what pace this cancer is at so the tests have started. Wow... Over night... And with no warning life changes. I stay scared these day... Fear of what they will find that has not been detected yet... Fear of what it will mean for us. Fear of losing more than i am ready to lose.
On top of this.. I have been out of work since December 23rd. I had a procedure PRP done on my right elbow. This is done for Tennis Elbow. I have been suffering from this for around 2 years now AND have been told that my daily dose of CONSTANT Key punch at work has damaged my elbow. The MRI completed a few weeks back shows a piece of my tendon hanging down and laying in the back side of my elbow... I have been told this is a workers comp issue but is hard to get the treatment i need if i go the route of workers comp so i just went with it on my own. But something must have gone wrong in this procedure... My arm became worse and has not healed. I am now set for surgery on my elbow for April 29th. Crazy huh... With the pain in that elbow there has not been a lot of finishes. Stitching hurts. I have been able to train myself to keep my elbow tucked to my side and to watch for a certain feeling of pain... That is my stopping point. So i am not getting very far with any of my projects. And there has been no finish work at all. Once i am healed i want to have a finishing weekend and just clear out my container of finished work. I have several i need framed too... But with no money coming in for that... It will have to wait. For now.
So i dont know how much i will be posting.. I am still looking and reading and keeping up with the amazing finishes posted each day.. But life has just imploded around me for right now.
There has not been the extra cash flow with being off for this length of time to purchase all the new goodies that were released at Market. Although my wish list grows as i look around. I have stopped looking for fear of what i may find that i just can not purchase right now. Saved for another day. Hopefully once my arm heals .. I will still have a job and can afford to get some new stash. I worry about my job with all of this...but it is a matter of what path God has planned for me. I am just riding on the coat tails and hoping the ride is a long and steady one.
Any and all prayers for me and the DH are welcomed, and GREATLY appreciated. Thank you... Thank you.

My daughter scraps from mom is looking for a series of charts. She is wanting charts only and I believe she is wanting to see if someone would have them used for sale. She is starting to get on a roll with cross stitch. She just completed her LPN degree and starts back to school in the fall for her RN/BSN degree. She was trying to get these started and kitted before she goes back to classes and clinicals again! If anyone has these and are done with them... And would like to sell them.... Please let either of us know...

I am moving so slow... i am using this as a type of therapy. My dr has told me to use my last fingers 3 fingers on that arm a little more and more each day to try to strengthen that tendon.. but when it starts to burn too much to stop. So... i am trying to stitch and use those fingers. It is going slow but at least i am working on it. Hopefully i can finish this while i am off work. Just wanted to update you.
Thank you for looking.

I had sooooo much fun. Last Friday evening... my DD, my bestie(my sister from another family ) and myself headed to our local cross stitch shop for her fall sale and cookout night. Oh my goodness what fun... what fun. We wend to Keepsakes in Sharonville, OH. What a good time... wine... food... charts... stitching... talking... and laughing. It was such a good time but it almost always is when i am with my bestie and my dd. She has free chart buckets... and they are a blast to go through and get some goodies... that is always a treat. The shop owners bith cater to us that nite. Barb welcomes and gets us settles.. keeps everyone cared for and glasses full. Her husband grills the best grilled chicken known to man... omg it is so good. All i can say to both of them is that they are way more than shop owners... and treating people to this type of evening is just amazing. Of course then there is the %off of everything in stock... so i do have to end this post wih a pic of my goodies.
Thank you for stopping by and looking...
