My Latest Hobby…

I have fell in love with hand embroidery. I already did cross-stitch and to be honest with you, I can’t see those little squares anymore.

After reading this gal’s blog over at ‘My Country Home’, I had to give it a try. She is wonderful at this craft (and others). You must go check her out! I can’t remember how I got started reading her blog, but I can’t wait to see what she is working on next. She has all sorts of links for free BOM (Block of the Month) patterns. They’re all wonderful. I’ve got most of them downloaded and even finished one set.

My daughter has even tried her hand at it. She spent the greater part of the night sewing up a little stitchery that we designed together. It was her idea and we worked on the drawing together. She stitched it totally alone. She didn’t want to trace the pattern, so we did the print right on the fabric. I might have to start doing that for myself…so much easier! I had to trace…UGH.

Here is her stitchery…. She is giving it to someone special to both of us. (I don’t think she reads my blog, so maybe she won’t see it until I get around to mailing it!)

Here is the picture if anyone else wants to stitch it up…go right ahead and steal the picture. (I’m not sure how to host it otherwise.) ~~I’m not sure if you guys can see it or not, since it’s not showing up on my page…but when I click it it goes to the picture~~

Here is the Autumn hanging I did for my office. I plan on doing one for each of the seasons and just switching them out. I love the stick idea (again this was from Leslie over at  “My Country Home”) This one is from HomeBerries.

Here are a couple of apple hangings that I made for the classroom, but they look so good hanging in my office. I don’t want to move them! LOL I even made the little wire hangers. These are both from HomeBerries.

Here is the BOM that I finished. It is the Christmas Wish-List BOM from Gail Pan Designs.

New Coop

Let me start by saying that it’s been awhile!  BUT, I figured it was about time to get back and post something.  So, here comes a few posts in a row..that should hold me over for sometime!

When we first got chickens we thought they would just roam wherever and come back to the safety of their cage at night.  YEAH RIGHT!  These chickens thought they were bulletproof, I guess.  So, when they started dissappearing one by one we had to do something.  Back in the winter we built  (and when I say ‘we’, I mean my husband!) a coop that you can walk in and it has roost poles and nest boxes and chicken wire on only one side.  We put nine chickens in that one.  That left four bantam chickens outside in the cold. (well actually they were all in the cold at that time ..lol)

So, the bantam chickens ended up in an old rabbit hutch that was given to us by a friend.  They liked it enough, but it was small and they couldn’t scratch the ground.  After staring at this thing in our backyard for sometime now, WE decided to build another coop for them.  Currently it is just a frame and covered in chicken wire with NO door.  Leave it up to my husband to half do a job…UGH!  He says he is still pondering on how he wants to do the door, oh well…as long as I don’t have to build it who cares!!!!

The other chickens have learned to come home at night, so we release them during daylight hours.  Guess they just got used to the coop, good thing cause we have lots of coons here!

Class Description

This class is a collaborative writing workshop. During

the course of this class, students will write freely on the topic. There will be brainstorming ideas, images, vocabulary words to incorporate, as well as peer review.Vocabulary words will be based on the common SAT vocabulary words. This serves two purposes, students will both learn new words and prepare for the SAT. It’s never to early to start preparing and this is a great way to expand

their lexicon. The student’s works will be published

in a free electronic version as well as available in print. In order for me to do this, participants grant nonexclusive,non-alienable rights to their submissions. This class is open to students of all ages including moms and dads therefore all stories MUST be G-rated. So fire up your pens and keyboards and start writing about THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT

Ages/Grades: Any age/grade can participate as long as the parent understands that either the child or they will need to complete the online writing assignments. Short stories are encouraged.
