Hello readers... a few weeks back the hubby helped my daughter get a new little Hyunda Accent... the DH was so impressed with the way it handles and of course the 38 mpg and then on ECO mode it is more like 42 mpg. soo... back to the dealorship we went.. for mine... here it is.. white 2014 accent with all the bells and whistles... hands free blue tooth.. sun roof... moon roof. i just love it. Going from the big engine in my Durango.. down to this itty bitty car has been a challenge but buying gas has been a breeze. I was paying about $100 / week for gas... now.. $32... at most. That is amazing. It is a wonderful little car. I love it.

Today it is cold and dreary in Kentucky. We have had snow showers off and on most of the day. We are to have another 1-2 inches tomorrow. I am surrounded by snow and Ice from our last big snow "event". I am very frustrated and want warmer days.

I am not a part of any of the SAL's that are for UFO's this year but it is a goal of mine to finish some of the started but not finished pieces in my basket.
With me having the flu, I have not been stitching very much nor very fast. I did in the past few days though start to work on my favorite piece. I started this a few years back with my best kindred spirit friend. her piece is finished... Lucky girl... My goal is to have mine hanging by years end.
I am having some troubles posting the pictures... It is cutting them off... You can click on them to open them.

Please all pray for recovery... i have had the flu for over a week now. Was at our local ER last Friday and left feeling like i was on the mend. I have a good day and then a very bad day. I have been out of work for 7 days now... and feel so bad about that. The fever is gone... i am no longer contageous... but i can not get rid of the cough and i have an ear that is stopped and soundsnlike there is water on it. It is so frustrating. I just want to feel better. I tried to go into work yesterday and my co workers said i looked like pooooo. And was barking like a dog. I just dont think it is right to cough this hard for 2 weeks. I go to the dr once again today to see what he can do to help me. I have been on an antibiotic... and several courses of sterrhoids. I have an inhailor... and cough syrup... i am so tired of being sick. Please pray foe healing for me and my family they have caught it too but are bouncing back much faster.
Thank you all... stay warm.

Happy New Year to everyone.. what a landslide of a year. Since July my world has just been uprooted and re adjusted... finding out my dad died. Then... swoooooosh.. gargle... and SPIT! Wow... I have aunts... uncles.. cousins... BROTHERS.... nieces and nephews... new experiences to be had by all. Wow all the new details to learn... what makes me who I am.... I had a wonderful childhood.. but it might have had a bit more adventure with everyone in it from the start. I would have liked to have looked in my dads eye... to have told him how awesome my childhood was... to have heard his voice.
So stitching has been wanted but my mental focus has not truly been where it needs to be to stitch...
I will start out by listing some of my stitching goals for 2014...
Working on UFO's...
♥ Peaceful Paradise
♥ Grandmother Fairy - Mirabillia
♥ LK Mystery Christmas piece
♥ Mary Cotton LaDDa
♥ Moses Sampler -silver creek samplers
♥ Emma & Eliza Meet the owls of October - Just Nan
♥ Jenny Beans Christmas Sampler - Shakespeares Peddler
♥ Storykeep Magical Arrival - HAED
♥ The Seven Virtues - LaDDa
♥ Away we Ride - Blackbird designs
Also several christmas ornaments to start ... stitch... and finish!
Big goals... but if just a few get done I am so happy.
I also want to show you some of the ornaments and progress for the end of 2013....

Friday night I went to my local cross stitch shop and got fabric for the Plum Street Sunday Chirstmas piece. Today was the release of part 2 and I have had so much fun getting this all caught up. I am stitching this on 28 count Picture This Plus Twilight... It is a denim like blue with a lot of cloud like variations in it. The color has presented some challenges with the colors used so I have had to change my colors. I am using a mixture of the DMC threads called for, some Gentle Arts called for. I even used a pretty green HDF silk for the one color... This has been so much fun working with colors... And trying to get the look that I want out of the fabric.

I hope this post finds everyone doing well. I am posting today to show you what mother nature has been giving us the past 24 hours. It has been raining every day this week but Friday into Saturday the rains were so hard. This is what use to be a local park... With a dog park attached. You can see where the dog park fense is all wadded up. What a shame the dogs seem to love this park... A safe place to run. When we stopped yo look you could smell a somewhat sewage smell... That is not good. As we drove around... There were several road closed due to flooding.
I am hoping later today to show some stitch pics... Again hope all is well with you. Keep crossing those stitches.
