Our New Home

A couple of people have asked to see our new home so I will show you some outdoor photos!

This is the front of our home

we have solar here!  YAY
Hope it helps reduce the bills.

and here is the yard.

There are lemon and orange trees in the backyard.

My daughter painted all the rooms before we moved in
and mine is a light...PURPLE! My favorite color!  

I am still "organizing" my space and
next I need to sew some curtains. 

I think we are in for many years of enjoyment here!

Thanks for stopping by,

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Evening everyone!

I did a little stitching this week and then my stitchy bug disappeared again. I figure it is in one of these unpacked boxes.  There are not to many left so I should find it soon! I really need it because I want to participate in Justine's Solo September. That is where we will stitch one piece (of your choice) for the month of September. I plan on digging Dinosaur's out and working on that!

Here is my finish!
Words SAL Part 8
Designer - Palkó

and here it is
in its entirety!
 
First Stitch 01/18/14
Last Stitch 08/22/16

I love how the colors look together and how it turned out.

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Hello Friends...

I still have not picked up the needle since we started packing, moving and unpacking. Today though I did gather up a couple of my pieces and put them on the table in front of me...so there is hope! I think that I may actually do some stitching today or tomorrow. Wish me luck ;)

The move went smoothly - yay!  Now to just finish finding places for everything we have unpacked! That is the tricky (and time consuming) part but it is almost done.

Thanks for stopping by,
see ya next time hopefully
with a stitchy update!

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Evening Folks,,,

It has been a long week but thankfully I did manage to get in a bit of stitching.

As you know I participated in Justine's Just One July and worked on Dinosaur! I did not quite finish two columns so I kept it out a couple of extra days to finish that section and here is the update.

Artist - Stephen Michael Gardner
Progress as of 08/02/16
Now it will be going away until Justine holds
Solo September and I work on this again!

Also with all the puppy excitement last week I forgot to show the update of the Words SAL! It was just a small update as is this weeks but EVERY STITCH COUNTS! I have been stitching this while at the new house waiting for deliveries.  First up is last week's update

Words SAL
Designer - Palkó
Progress as of 07/23/16

And this week's update
Progress as of 08/04/16

Sorry, but I have one more update for you...

Some of you might remember that I joined the "1 Hour A Day Challenge" over at pomegranate and chintz. I started a few days late so naturally I ended a few days late too...but I DID IT! Here are my daily progress pictures.

Days 1 thru 5

Days 6 - 14

This week will probably consist of little to no stitching as we prepare for the big move on Saturday! Wish us luck. I am praying all goes smoothly just like when we moved here from Illinois.

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week (maybe) with another faithful update!
