Here's the latest!

Well, I hit the mother lode the other day and got some cross stitch magazines for really good price! I went through the ones I wanted to keep and I've listed the others under my goodies for sale. Take a peek and let me know which one(s) you're interested in -- I'm only asking $1 per copy plus the S&H.

My currently sorted stash has been sold BUT I'm going to be adding some more Light Effects and some Variations and maybe even some hand-dyed flossies to the sale board! Gotta finish the summer semester homework in all three classes first...LOL.

Can you believe...

that it's only 78 more days until Christmas?!? Where did the rest of the year go?!?

For those of you who have been patiently waiting for my shipping rates on my website ( to go down like I promised, my son is STILL trying to tweak everything to work right -- seems that PayPal is giving him fits about something or other. Thank heaven HE knows what he's doing! LOL

As most of you know, my dad passed away on Monday the 3rd of October so the whole family is still trying to recover from that.

On the bright side, I started back to school on the 19th of September and so far, classes seem to be going pretty well. I'm carrying five classes this quarter BUT two are online only so that makes it a bit easier and less time constrictive.

Don't forget to check out my website for all sorts of Christmas gifts -- I have something for men, something for the kitchen, something for babies, and something for women, as well as a variety of other goodies to come, so make sure you check back often!!

The latest; the greatest!

For those of you who have checked out my website but found the shipping WAY too high, I have wonderful news! My computer guru son (who built the thing for me) is helping me to figure out how to charge shipping on weight rather than dollar amount. That will save everyone who purchases anything a BUNDLE. Give us until September 1 to have it done.

As a special "gift" to anyone who orders from my website from September 1 through December 1, I'll throw in a little something special (it's a surprise!). All you have to do is mention that you're a follower of my blog and there you have it!!

Shame on me!

I haven't done an update in almost a month! Sheesh!! Well, that's gonna change...LOL. Let's see, middle son took me to see Cowboys and Aliens yesterday. That's one movie I wouldn't mind PAYING to see again!!

My stepdad is doing pretty good now -- he's using his walker more and his wheelchair less. And he's eating better (he turned 80 in March and after we lost Mom last December, he sort of wilted). Since he and my soon-to-be-ex get along so famously, and my ex couldn't find work and his unemployment ran out, Dad fired the other caregiver (she was ripping him off royally!) and hired Stan to be his live-in caregiver. Talk about a win-win for the both of them! He pays Stan HALF of what he was paying that woman and of course, pays the bills and the groceries, so Stan actually has money to help me out!

My little muttster, Scrappy Doo is doing great for heading for the 9-year mark. Most of the time, he acts like he's 9 MONTHS old!

I'm planning to go ahead and go back to school in September and finish up my Associates' Degree once and for all!

Oh, and by the way, IF you become a follower to my blog, you can enter to win some really, pretty goodies (will announce them later).

Happy Summer!

Good afternoon, all! Well, I'm caught up enough with my schoolwork that I get to PLAY this weekend! I'm going to try to finish up the outlining on my Red Hat Sampler so I can frame it, but I'm also going to sew up a coupon holder/organizer thingy that hangs on the handle of your shopping cart so when I go grocery shopping, everything is right there. I'll show you guys a picture when it's all done.

Going to start some plastic canvas Barbie stuff for my oldest granddaughter; her birthday is the end of August and she LOVES Barbie!

That's "all the news and all the weather" about you guys?

Oh, almost forgot...I'm going to have a drawing for a couple of cross stitch magazines on the 6th of August so that gives you two weeks to leave a comment that you'd like to win them. Make sure that I have your mailing info "somewhere" in case you win.

All gone!

Well, Ray from the i-love-cross-stitch yahoo group just bought and paid for all of my linen and satin floss! I just know he'll turn out even more beautiful works of thread art!
