I’m a bad blogger…

Filed under: Chatter | Tags: , , ,

Wow, am I a bad blogger or what! I haven’t posted a new blog since the end of May and it’s now the middle of July! Bad bad blogger 😦  I’m a good tweeter though, I Twitter almost every day! 🙂  Does that give me some sort of redemption?  lol 

It’s sunday and I’m feeling goofy today. We finally got moved and mostly settled. Still haven’t gotten everything where I want it but it’s workable. Need to rearrange the kitchen cabinets a bit to make the kitchen flow a bit smoother but overall I really like our new home 🙂  Need to figure out where to put my collection of mason and other miscellaneous jars (they’re still in the boxes I packed them in). Hate to put breakables on shelves because I’ve had a few fall down and everything broke.  That’s just heartbreaking when it’s something that can’t be replaced.  I’ll figure it out I’m sure…one of these days! lol  🙂

Kids are enjoying our new town. The library is within walking distance so my kids are …  ready for this … going to the library almost every day … and it’s SUMMER!  They’re reading and participating in the classes and I think it’s just wonderful!  They have a lot more responsibilities here than they did out in the cornfield, such as a pool to clean every day and a yard overflowing with plants and flowers that must be weeded and tended.  They’re doing great and every day I notice I don’t have to remind them quite as much as the day before to do their ‘chores’. 

I’m gearing up for what is normally Christmas in July at HeartStrings Embroidery – but this year I’m calling it Happy Everything!  I think my overall theme this year will be the seasons.  4 season quilt blocks and a bunch of other things all revolving around the seasons or months or days of the week.  Haven’t decided what all new designs I will have, but they’ll be lots plus a freebie every day. If you have a suggestion for a design you’ve been wanting, let me know.  I have wonderful artists that can draw anything so give me a shout out!

Well I’ve rambled quite a bit now. I need to get busy doing my ‘chores’..the pool needs vacuumed, weeds need pulled and I need to put together our new (to us) pool table.  A little funny…my kids asked me if I could not PRIM out the rec room!  🙂  ROFL  I thought that was too funny!  lol  So I guess that means no saltbox or willow trees or tea-dye allowed in there…rofl rofl 

Have a great day & SMILE 🙂

Friday new release embroidery designs

It’s Friday! Yeaaa – long weekend ahead! 🙂  Anyone plan on swimming?  Here in Ohio it’s always iffy – if it’s warm enough and the water doesn’t have a layer of ice on it! lol  Our pool is just about filled and it’s got a heater…so maybe…  lol  We all know my kids will be right in it, blue lips and everything.  Don’t ya sometimes wish you were still a kid and had no fear.  I wonder if I could still ride a bike… hmmm  lol

Anyway – new releases today at HeartStrings Embroidery.  There’s also a new freebie – applique fishing lure.


Farm Blocks – 4 square.  So many uses!  I did mine in 1 color because I like the look.  Great for applique on towels or a quick and easy wall hanging.


This Olde Crows has worn himself out and crashed – right into my favorite summer food – watermelon! lol



Bless Our Nation – great companion to last week’s Olde Glory!

Everyone have a wonderful long weekend and on monday, take a second out to remember those that have come before us in the USA to fight for our freedom.  Say a Thank You and special prayer for them 🙂

HUGS & Happy Stitching


New embroidery designs..

Happy Thursday everyone 🙂  It’s a beautiful day here in Ohio and here I sit inside making embroidery designs 🙂  Windows are open and I have a wonderful breeze blowing through the house.  Memorial Day weekend weather looks good.  I bet my kids get in the pool even though I know it’s going to be COLD!  Oh, the joy of being a kid.

I put up 3 new designs on HeartStrings today.  Americana and Grandma and Grandpa.  You can never have too much Americana I think 🙂  I haven’t snapped pictures yet, sorry about the computer generated pictures.
