So much has changed....

I've been making some major changes & moves in my life over the past few months. I was offered an awesome job in Denver working for a non-profit that helps young men/women who just get out of prison get rehab, housing and jobs. My BFF's hubby is the director and I just love the work and am making almost double what I was in Pueblo. I am still working for the Black-eyed Pea 2-3 nights a week; just for fun money and because I've been waiting tables off and on forever and love the work with the public. So, I moved to Denver the end of April, I bought Kenny a bus ticket to Oregon, we've been having problems for a few years and I just need a fresh, new start... So, once I got settled I went to Fanci-Mats and met Cindy the owner who is a wonderful, friendly lady. I've become a regular customer and have had no problem spending my "fun money" there.. LOL I just ordered this pattern from Country Stitches this weekend when she posted it; I just fell in love with it.. can't wait to get it hopefully this week. I've been stitching some, not too much. I met a sweet man working at the Pea, were just dating now and taking it really slow; but he's very special and sweet and treats me well. Ashley and the babies are back in the states from Germany. Their living in Texas and are coming out for Thanksgiving, I can't believe Scarlett just turned 4 Sunday; time goes by so fast. I've been reading your posts and keeping up with your families and stitching.. :) Take care my friends....

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
