Hi,
Hope you all are having a good day....It is sooo cold here in Virginia. Supposed to get down to around 5 degrees tonight! We made a big pot of Vegetable soup last night and it was so good. Had some wonderful deli bread to go with it! yum.......We are staying in tonight ....except I HOPE my hubby will take me out to eat tonight!!! I just put a little Quaker Pinskeep on the Blog for you that I designed. It works up really fast. I just did it on Aida cloth and then distressed it. The floss I used was 938 DMC. So simple but primitive. Anyway, hope you enjoy! Maybe you can stitch it up this weekend if you are in a cold place. Have a blessed weekend!

Hi Girls,
What are you going to do this year! I have all kinds of plans...but probably won't keep any of them! I won't to do a lot of the needlework that I have started and NOT finished. I am sure you have some of those. I won't live long enough. Another thing I plan to do this year is to really make more friends!! You know how we seem to have a lot of "acquaintances". Wellllll, as the old saying goes, that when you die, if you have a couple of goooood friends you can count yourself lucky, then, we should all be really fortunate! I think, personally, we are all too, busy! I think that is why bloggers, and facebooks and all the other thinks and gotten started. They are like "pen pals". There are a bunch of girls sitting around on computers typing instead of getting together like they used to do and having "fun". Laughing and just cutting up! You know, just plain old girl stuff!! Being silly! Guys don't know how to do it! They have their Guy Stuff... don't they! We can't get together and cross stitch but we should be able to! When I had my Needlework Shop girls would come there all the time and just bring there needlework in and I had a table and chairs and they could set and cross stitch and we would have the best time!! Just laughing and talking ...just about anything....we don't do that much anymore! Women miss out on it....We need to get back to it! What do you think???? I miss having really close friends, what about you????

Happy New Year Everyone!!
Hope you all had a safe and Happy New Years Eve......and are having a great DAY!!!! I can't believe it is 2009! How time flies. Did you make any New Year Resolutions that you AREN'T going to keep? That seems to be the only kind I make.
Here is a poem I read this morning in our local paper. The author is unknown but it is a good way to start off the year! Enjoy.....


Share your gifts and talents ---listen with your heart.
Do the things you dream about but don't have time to start.
Pick a bouquet of flowers --show someone that you care.
Be gracious and forgiving, life is never fair.
Hold on to your courage, you may need it down the road.
We all have a cross to bear.....it could be a heavy load.
If you practice all these things, no matter where you roam.
You may find both sun and rain, but you'll never feel alone.
Maybe we could all do a little of the above this year and just spread some joy in each others lives! After all, isn't life too short not to. Time seems to get faster and faster (although it really doesn't)...just seems that way as you go through life.
Have a great day!
Nancy
