Hello Becky....

I was just wondering if anyone knows what happened to Becky from "Becky Bee's Stitching Hive"? I sure do miss her postings and beautiful stitching and finishing. I hope her and her family are ok?

Goodbye 2013...

Well, like many of us I'm going to start out the New Year with hopes of making some big (and not so big) changes in my life: I got myself a sewing machine on Black Friday and my goal this year is to learn how to finish some of the stitching that has been building up for the past few years; I love to stitch; but am challenged when it comes to finishing. LOL I want to be a "Grand Finisher" like Vonna & Myra & Lisa & Becky..:) So that is one of my goals for the year. Along with the normal lose weight and try to be a better person. The kids will be back from Germany the 27th of February; I can't wait to meet Mr. Colton; he's so darn adorable, and of course get my hands on Miss. Scarlett. We always Skype but it isn't the same as holding them. On the stitching front; I'm working on Lizzie Kates new "Snow" kit; I'm loving it and should have a picture to post in a few days. Wishing everyone a very safe and Happy New Years Eve. Be careful if your going out tonight; I'm going to have a quite night along with the dogs & cat and ponder my life..lol

It's getting closer...:)

I can't believe Christmas is almost here; with Thanksgiving being so late this year it really shortened the span between it and Christmas. I haven't posted in a while; I didn't realize it'd been so long. The kids come back from Germany Feb 27 and will fly to Dallas and then drive to Corpus, their new home and are planning to drive to see family in Colorado in March. I can't wait to get my hands on Colton and Scarlett..:) I miss all of them so much. It's been a long 3 years they've been over there. My other daughter and grandson are also doing well. I went and spent the night with them last week and we had a lot of fun. I stitched Colton and Scarlett Christmas Stockings, every year I stuff the girls stockings, they'd rather have those than big gifts. I do make a pretty good stocking. LOL I had to mail them off to Germany real early and it only took a week to get there. We thought it'd take longer. I haven't been posting, but get on blogger everyday to see what everyone else is doing and everyone has really done some beautiful stitching this season. It's sad to see it coming to an end for another year. I love the time from Halloween to Christmas. It's been colder here in Pueblo, Colorado then normal and I'm loving it..:) Were expecting snow this Christmas; I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I've been thinking of our dear friend we lost Cathey, how her poor baby and family must be hurting so deeply this holiday season; life doesn't seem fair sometimes to take someone so young from the ones who love her. We all know how much she adored Jr. I went thru and re-read some of our person e-mails last night. She was always so positive and sweet; I know like so many of you, I miss her terribly and hope she rest in peace, she's watching her loved ones from heaven. I doubt I'll be on again before Christmas, I want to wish each and everyone of you and yours a wonderful Christmas and very safe and Happy New Year..Hugs, Shar

Welcome Mr. Colton...

Hi ladies, my computer died, yet again. So, until I get myself a new one (hopefully this week) I'm using Kenny's. I have been wondering how to word this post. Ashley, my youngest DD gave birth to my new grandson Colton on the 10th of October, as most of you know this is also the day we lost a very sweet dear stitching friend Cathey. When I got on the computer that evening to post pictures and the news of Colton, I read where we lost Cathey. I sat here and cried. Like many of you I never met her personally, but on our blogs we became friends, we traded a Halloween theme exchange that I will treasure always and we emailed each other a few times a month. My heart really went out to her and I was praying that she would beat this horrible disease. My heart breaks for her husband and sweet Jr. who doesn't understand why his mommy isn't with him. I know she is no longer hurting and is with the lord in a better place than we are for sure. So, now I will post some pictures of Mr. Colton Cassidy, :) Ashley was scheduled for a C-section at 7:30 a.m. on the 10th, they are stationed in Germany and are 8 hours ahead of us here in Colorado. Needless to say this momma didn't get any sleep that night. I stayed up waiting for my SIL to text me pictures and let me know how Ashley did. We almost lost her when she had Scarlett, so this was so very scary for us. Especially with her 1/2 way around the world. I have to tell you all, I cried off and on for about 1 1/2 hours. lol Damn Menapause..lol Well, at 8:10 Torry texted me that baby and mommy were fine. Colton weighted 9lb, 10 oz and is 21" long. :) He's so precious. I'm in love yet again. Being a grandma is the best feeling in the world. Here are some pictures of our not so "little" guy. On the stitching front I'm stitching on Scarlett's Christmas Stocking then I have to do Coltons. :)
