Happy Memorial Day

 Happy Memorial Day.
My Dad was in the Navy during WWII stationed on a troop transport in the Pacific.
Thank you to everyone who has served our nation!

We finally had a beautiful day today. 
Saturday and Sunday were intermittent storms and showers.
My awesome husband really worked on the beds.  
My flower beds were a disaster. 
The last two years have been garden neglectful.  
I have had to spend a lot of time helping my Mom.  
We had a rose bush take over everything.  
What that didn't take over, grass did.
I haven't been able to do much with my bum right leg. 
I have a raging case of hamstring tendinosis, heal spur, is getting better.  

I haven't been able to do too much on my feet so, I have been stitching more.  
Shucks!  That really is!

Did the La-d-da from the winter edition of Punch Needle and Primitive Stitching.  
I subbed the silk/dmc with over dyes and like the way it turned out.  
 Started on the BBD Heart last night on my homemade dyed fabric.  
I am pretty pleased with myself!
The next few months are going to be insanely busy at work. 
We have a therapist off for maternity leave, two weeks early and won't be back till August.  
And the census has skyrocketed!
I am sure that when she comes back it will bottom out and we will all be under scrutiny.  
I am getting too old for games and will probably tell my boss to fire me.  
I don't think I would be heart broken to collect unemployment.

I almost forgot.  
My graph for page views have looked like this for the last two month.
I have been averaging +300 views per day.  
I just all of the sudden started doing this.  
I don't think I've been hacked but, does anyone have this?
If I have more visitors.....I'm so glad you found me!Thanks for stopping.  Graph of Blogger page views
Hope you had a great weekend.
Keep on stitching!


  1. What a super finish and a lovely start! Hope you leg/foot pain goes away soon! Enjoy the coming week!

  2. The La D Da turned out nice, and the fabric for the BB is pretty.
    A lot of grass and creeping Charlie to weed here!
    You could pull it out everyday, I swear.
    I hope your leg/foot pain subsides soon.

  3. Great stitching!!!
    Don't worry about the page views, I am in the same situation as you.... let's hope it stops soon.

  4. Love the La D Da finish and the color of your pink fabric. I have a blog view thing on my blog but haven't looked at it in a while. I hope your foot and leg pain go away soon.

  5. What a beautiful finish. Great job on the hand dyed fabric too.
    I'm a new visitor and a new follower :) nice to find your blog
