Busy Time of The Year!


     A dear friend of mine asked me yesterday if I hadn't posted since December! I  thought about it, and had to admit that I hadn't.  With Christmas.  The flu.  A trip to NH to see my new great grand, Isaiah, and everything else going on....I had ignored my postings.  Sorry my dear followers.
     First thing I noticed, when I arrived here this morning, is that we still need only six more followers to reach the 100.  Once there, I'll draw a name to see who wins the surprise box of goodies.  We've been at he 94 for a while now, so let your friends know about the give away.  Keep in mind that they have to sign up as a follower and they have to mention the giveaway on their own blogs.  Here's the box below.  Shoe box size.  It doesn't look like much, but it's full of goodies.  I hope we reach 100 soon.

     I made, knitted, a few Christmas gifts and then crocheted up a kitchen towel and cloths to go with it.  Wish I had taken a picture of these.  The towel wan the red, white and blue ombre, and I did one red and one ombre cloth.  Made a nice set.
     I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever finish this piece below, but I have only about an hours worth of stitching on it.  Just got too busy with other things over the holidays and didn't pay a lot of attention to my love of cross stitch.  As you can see, all I have left are the long stitches in the leaves.  Maybe today........

      I have seen quite a few SAL's this past week or so.  Very pretty things.  Not only cross stitched, but knitted and crocheted as well.  Are any of my sweet followers here participating in any of them I wonder and if so, which.......  I participated in just one long time back.  Did good for about three months, and then got involved with too many other things.  I decided then and there that, that would be the last one.  I did finish it, but way, way later than it was supposed to be finished.  Good thing I wasn't being fined for being late! So now I look at them and admire what everyone else is doing.
     A happy but late Valentine's day to all of you.  This picture below was taken of my Bill and I at the local senior center.  It was a Valentine's day celebration.  The love of my life indeed.

     Must catch you up on another love of mine.  Here's the latest picture of Isaiah, my great grandson.  He just loves Peepa, my son.  They're so blessed to live so close to him  They're great grandparents.

Just one more of our four generation family photo.

      Well I was given a delicious fig bar recipe and I'm going to go ahead and make some.  Between the soup and the bars, the house will smell homey and fantastic. 
     Want to thank all of my dear friends and followers for being so patient with me.  I think of you so often, and just need to get myself here to this site, to catch up with ya'll.  So until next time, stay safe and well and warm.  Of course, the last thing I want to remind you is, not to forget to "feel the colors".
