To All of My Good Friends in Blogger

To all of those who come in, I would like to invite you to come and visit me on Instagram and Google +.   I have found those to be excellent places to display my needlework and interact with others.  Many of the bloggers I have known over the years are on Instagram, so please visit me there at The Stitchwizard and in Google+ at Debby Littlefield.

 I have found that these are places that are more updated with better technology and I have more control and security concerning a couple of internet trolls who spend all of their time here lurking, worrying about my personal business, from how much stash I get, to wondering how much it cost, to wondering how much money we make and questioning whether my husband is a Vietnam Veteran, which he most certainly is, from 1964-1968, and things that are no one's business really.

 My private life is just that PRIVATE. I love sharing things with my followers but the things these two trolls want to know are just not their business at all.    I hardly even know either one of them really and don't want to.  So that being said, I am making a positive change. Please do come in and see me at Google+ and Instagram.

Serenity Harbor Small Progress on Block 6

                                                                    

I made a little more progress on Serenity Harbor this past week.   Yesterday was a good day to go over to my LNS and get some thread for the meadow of sheep that will be on the side of this small house.  We rode over to Spring, TX and got some threads and then over to Rockfish Seafood restaurant afterwards.  The heat wave has moved west but still it is warm and humid here.  We rode through some rain but got dry on the way home. Love the weekends even though most days are like weekends for us.  Looking forward to some stitching today.

Donna Bayliss has decided to make two more ways to stitch the very bottom of this project and all of us can decide which one we want to stitch. I love one of the new endings she chose.   Some of the women found that the fabric they were using was not going to have enough room for the finish so Donna redesigned the very bottom of the project to accommodate the error in their fabric.  Since mine is 40 ct instead of the 32, I don't have any problems but do like the new change to this pattern with more roses along the bottom.

Stitching Blog

Stitching Blog

First of all I would like to thank all of the people who come in and leave me comments in my blog.  I have been on Blogger for many many years now and this is my stitching blog where I have many many friends.  People from all over the world come into my blog and it is fun seeing everyone's work and works in progress for all of us. A couple of trolls.

The troll from Tempe, Arizona has been in my blog 92 different  times (8-29-15 ) according to my counter Seems like a lot over a short period of time.

Sorry to have to make a post like this but isn't blogging about showing your work and enjoying seeing others work as well?  Joy you don't have to come into my or my husband's blog if you don't like our posts.   No one is forcing you to.

Getting Closer



It is getting closer and closer to going to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for my retreat this year.  It will be in October. The summer is going so fast.    I still need to do some stitching for the exchanges.   I am so looking forward to seeing many friends I made there last year, it will just be the best time ever.

Serenity Harbor Block 5 Finish

    Frame and Table Top Stand Made by Wooden Treasures  (www.woodentreasures.info)

Finally finished block 5 yesterday on Serenity Harbor. Lots of solid stitching but it is enjoyable to do on a very hot day inside with the A/C going. I love Serenity Harbor. I have blocks 6 7 and 8 so I won't be running out on this one anytime soon. We broke a record here with the 106 F heat so staying inside and stitching was incentive to finish stitching on the water in block 5.   I have blocks 6, and7 also to do but am glad this one is finished.  My dh says this looks like where he lived in Camden, Maine and I just need to get him to go there with me for a visit now.  I have never been to the New England area and would love to go.  If not for the winters there, I would love to live there.  Thank you to the ladies who left me nice comments and welcome to my blog Kate!  I am happy to have new followers come in!  :)
