Hello from Texas....

Well, I made the flight in one piece. LOL I haven't flown since 1996 and let me tell you things have really changed...I didn't have any problems and even got my stitching scissors on the flight ok; they never said anything about them; I'd talked to several ladies and they had mixed experiences on the air lines allowing scissors. Some had lost their favorite ones, so I just brought a old stork pair that doesn't cut very well and there wasn't a problem. Me and Scarlett have been stitching, it makes this Grandma very happy when she asks if we can stitch, she's only 4 so I have to help but she's doing a great job. I brought Bent Creeks "Summer House" Zipper for us to do; it's on 18 count and the needle is huge so I thought it would be easier for us to use. It's so humid here; Ashley & Torry just bought their first home in Corpus Cristie; I've never been here before and the humidity is horrid!! It's rained everyday, this morning we had a really bad thunderstorm and I've caught a cold either from the babies or from the weather change. Hopefully it won't rain tomorrow so we can go to the ocean; I'd like to go home with some sun.. It's nice not having to worry about working for this week; but I"m kind of panicking about the money I'm missing. I'm single and a waitress and pretty much live day by day, the kids bought me a ticket to come visit them and I couldn't say no and I haven't had a vacation for almost 5 year. I guess I'll just worry and deal with things when I get home. I did have a amazing job offer before I left and I am praying everyday that it pans out; it would be so much more money and it's an office job and I'd be off my feet. I'm too old to be waiting tables; my knees are bad and I just can't do this much longer. I have so much to write about; but I'll just save it for another day. I hope everyone is safe and sound and doing lots of stitching.. Hugs, Shar

I'm still around.

Well, it's been a while since I've posted; I still don't have a computer at home, just my tablet and I hate trying to type on that thing. So, I come to the library every once in a while to print off free cross stitch, and get caught up here; I may go looking at computers today; I do miss having one and being able to update my blog. Last week Ashley flew here from Texas and her and I and Heather went and seen Garth Brooks, we had amazing seats and had a wonderful time, I fly to Texas on April 10 to visit the grandbabies for 7 days; I haven't had a vacation in 4 years and I sure am looking forward to just relaxing and hopefully getting some sun. They live in Corpus Cristie and it's right by the beach. I can't wait... I haven't been stitching very much lately; I just can't seem to get my stitching mojo going. I've started a few things but can't seem to focus long enough to make any progress. Hope everyone is safe and happy....

Merry Christmas....

I hope everyone is doing well and are healty and happy. I know the holidays can be a difficult time of year for many of us, those of us who have lost loved ones and can't be with the people we love. But we just have to be greatful for what we have and live our lives the best we can. So much has changed in my life over the past year, I don't even know where to begin...I'll save that for another day. LOL Ashley, Torry and the kids were here for Thanksgiving, we had a wonderful time and their moving to the Denver area in March, I'm so very happy about that. I've meet someone who makes me extremely happy and is a wonderful, loving man who I hope stays in my life for a very long time. Just a short note to say hi and even though I don't post like I should, I will try and get better, I read everyones posts and love all the beautiful stitching you all are doing, I've kind of lost my stitching "mojo", sure hope it comes back soon.. Love, Sharee

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
