On a Sunny Tuesday

Well Hello there thank you for stopping in. I have been doing a bit of stitching. My family and I went camping and i finished this little snowman below.
I just finished this cute cat. I love Brittercup designs. This one was in a UK magazine and I really like it. I changed the colors, as they were in Weeks and I don't have any of those. It will be finished off as a tote bag pocket soon.
I am doing some soul searching about leaving all the Yahoo groups I belong too, there was something that just happened on one of the groups in my very first RR I ever joined and things have really gotten ugly and it really had nothing to do with anything I have done, it was a friend stepping into "help" and unfortunately things have gotten worse instead of better. I have asked the group owner to return my RR to me and I will finish it myself I guess and chalk this up to experience. I have had my share of those in these groups and I certainly do not need this kind of hurt anymore.
I have made so many wonderful friends on my Yahoo groups and I certainly hope that they will all keep in touch as I love to hear what they are up to in their lives and what they are stitching and sewing. Well off to finish the housework so that I can get my walk in and then some stitching. Chat with you soon HUGS

On the stitching front...

Starting with some beautiful lilacs. I took a course a little while ago Pain Management and one of the things we were asked to do is make a promise each week to do something for ourselves, alot of the people said they would walk or do some sort of exercise, but I already do that so I picked stitching for myself as I was at the time doing alot of stitching for Hospice and my stuff was going by the wayside. Well when my course ended we were to pick a long term goal, mine being to lose another 20 lbs which i am almost 1/2 way there Yeah!! and my short term goal well I have almost finished and that was to clean off my stitching table and get these project finished. So here goes starting with a retirement present for our favorite librarian

I am still here...

I have been sick for so long finally get over that to have waves of sickness come again I am so very tired of this. But finally feeling better and now to get back into my weight loss mode. I lost 27 lbs over 2009 with a total of 50 pounds now gone forever. Time to get back into this weight loss and get healthy.
I have done some sewing and stitching. Attached is a picture of the tote I made my sister for her birthday next month.

I was in an exchange in one of my groups but don't want to ruin Viv surprise so I will show a picture when it arrives in UK.
I have been doing some crafting for Hospice with a friend of mine and so far we have about 15 of these almost done. We are also doing small purse size Kleenex covers and little bird house ornaments, and cute little ornaments kids love that are animals and hold candies will show pictures when they are done as well. Working on a tote for my daughter very beautiful material can't wait to work with it. Also working on a bell pull with Christmas frogs on it just about ready to start my frogs, others in the group SAL have a few frogs already finished, so I am a little behind.

Worked on some wedding invitations for a friends daughter can't wait to see the final result of all that work. They should turn out great.
Olympics are on TV watched the Opening ceremonies and I was quite impressed they did a good job, and we are doing pretty good we have 1 of each medal I will be watching the ceremony tonight where they will give out the Gold medal. Well off to watch some more and stitch a bit. Chat soon

an update

I bought a new to me car and what a deal... a whole $100.00. I went out to the Ford dealer as they were having a 4 day sale. Wed one for 10,000 (out of my price range) Thursday one for $1000. which was a 2002 Ford Taurus, I wanted this car so i was out there at 10 to 8 as the sale started at 9, well a person got there 20 minutes before me so he got the car, but I went the next day and got the Friday $100. car which is a 1998 Ford Taurus Wagon which I love and it is in great shape and drives beautifully.
I will need to get all season tires for it as it only came with winter tires, and eventually I will have to get a new battery for it as my Grand Prix battery won't fit which is a bummer as that battery is not even a year old.
I have been doing a little stitching I finished a tote bag for my sister for her birthday in March, and I sewed a pair of PJ pants for myself with cute giraffes on them. I will get Savy to take a picture of me in them and post one soon. I am working on a bookmark for an exchange I joined in one of my groups, and also working on a SAL with Christmas frogs that are so cute.
Hubby has been home all week it has been so nice as I have missed him when he is gone for so long. He applied for a truck driving job but we haven't heard from them yet.
Well off to do my treadmill them some housework then stitching yeah! Take care all chat soon!
