My Saturday stitching project

Well now that all the chores are done, and I made time with the kids, I am going to sit and stitch for a bit. I will also be watching Shameless On Netflix.  Very addicting show!!







I am also wondering if anyone has played this game?  I am not sure about it.  I would rather be stitching than playing this game.  





Another great site for new stitchers

Some amazing websites and blogs that are worth mentioning.

So while I was waiting for my migraine to ease off, I decided to surf around since I don't have the concentration to stitch.  I love searching for free patterns and look at new charts.

free cross stitch patterns

This next blog is pretty awesome.  I went there to find this free pattern that I hear about and found so much more.  I have made this pattern one of my maynia starts.  The quote is very special to me as I have dealt with depression and anxiety.  In my darkest moments I have had a few thoughts about it but I could not ever do it to my family.  It would have hurt my family deeply.  The below link belongs to a blog called stitching the night away.  The creator of the blog encourages everyone to share the link and post the finished product.  It is a great way to raise awareness to a serious issue.

I hope that you all are having a great nite, happy stitching everyone :)😄😄

A quick update


I hope that everyone is doing well. I am just getting over a bad cold and have not done a flosstube for 2 weeks. I had great plans to show my manyia plans but just did not have the energy to talk. Lol. I have managed to start the projects that I picked out. I will update and show pics in my next post.  I have been having a lot of fun doing them. I decided to just work on each project for one day and then put them in rotation. 

Work is going good and the weather is getting nice. School is almost done so I am not sure how much stitching that I will be able to get donethis summer but hoping I can still get some stitching in. I loved going to our camp in the woods. It is so quiet and perfect to stitch although in early July sitting outside is not recommended due to the damn black flies. Lol 

Till next time......

My Kids are growing up

Wow, my kids are growing up so fast that I cannot believe it.  My sweet daughter has her beginners.  Wow her beginners.  I was very nervous about the fact that she would be driving but I am very happy that she will be able to take care of herself and not depend on anyone else. 

My son is starting to really think about what he wants to be.  He has always wanted to be a RCMP officer and involved with the military somehow.  Those both scare me but whatever makes him happy.

I am still stitching everyday and I feel very bad that I have left the blog get so behind.  I will post a picture of my finish that I am very proud of.

I am so sorry


Hey everyone, I hope that you all can forgive me for being gone for so long.  I have been going through alot of personal stuff with my anxiety and depression.  I have had to adjust a few things but I feel like I am getting better.  I am also going to get back into my youtube channel but I wanted to update here first.  I am still stitching, that has not changed.  I was lucky enough to have enough money that I had been saving to get a laptop.  I have a hp 15.1 laptop which is really nice because now I can update my blog quickly without having to go at the desk top computer.  It just gives me more freedom.  I have missed you all and I am still watching everyone on floss tube.  It was just hard because when I cant even look at myself in a mirror most days, I really could not face a camera.


So below I will post some pics of some projects that I have been working on.  I do hope that you are all well and that you are all still stitching.
