Still finding my stitch time....

How silly to think I would not get in any stitch time! Let's face it, no matter what is happening around here...I am the only one up at 3 or 4 am, and we do not go anywhere until later in the morning...so....needle is in hand.
Yes, I am enjoying love having my brother visit. He and Mr H have always had a great relationship. Alan was only 11 when Dennis and I married...and Alan spent lots of time with us while growing up. We both enjoy reading, so we spend time reading and of course chatting and he and Dennis are sure to tease one another. Yesterday we went to the pool in the morning so Alan could tan a little then to  Margaritaville and had a few margaritas...delicious! After relaxing home for a time, and trying to decide where to have dinner..... we went back to Margaritaville for a nice evening.
Today we are taking Alan up to Jerome...
And now to the stitching. While waiting to see if my dear friend Fern had the right DMC shade for my challenge piece...I put in a few more stitches on the fob...
It is such a lovely piece to stitch.... Now for the good news....yes indeed, Fern had the correct shade for me! So meet me over my other place and see for yourself.
Thank you for sharing some time with me...thank you for the lovely comments....have a great day.

Not much stitching yesterday....


Well it should be no real surprise that my stitching will take a back seat this week...my brother arrived and we had a lovely afternoon chatting and sitting out on the lanai making plans for the time he will be staying...
one of my sweet friends thinks she has the "old" color of thread I need for my challenge piece, so I have put that down for now....I did get a few more stitches added to my Glad Tidings ..
Look beyond the wrinkles! I added some leaves for the vine...a few more motifs to be added....it is a pleasant little project.
Getting the coffee ready for when my brother wakes...
I have been trying to catch up reading all your blogs. Amazing what a few days without the computer can do! I think I may have won a give away...not sure...I have found a few new followers here....I may just be on the final reads of many blogs....and posting comments.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope your day is wonderful..

Look what finally arrived...

A time back, I won a give away from Rory and Kathy for Down Sunshine Lane. I picked out these.....
I really want to stitch them....now! But I will wait and try to fit them in. Just love BBD. Thank you Kathy and Rory too.

Some days~~~

Lately I seem to be loosing track of time. It just gets away from me and I can not get it back! We had a very quiet and relaxing Sunday...the ham was so good. I had a busy Monday...My monthly stitch group and then we had our Spring Luncheon. home to go with Mr H for an MRI...then some errands to run....things to get organized for today. What is today...yes, it is Tuesday, but it is also the day my brother Alan arrives for his visit.
He is 11 years younger than me, but can be the big bro when needed. Sorry to say that the visit is only 3 days, but I will enjoy every minute with him. He tries to come out every Spring, just him...sis in law and niece remain in RI.
On the stitch front...
I did a bit more in my "spare" time....and I did pick up my challenge piece again...for that, meet me at my other place.
It is so nice to have you visit with me...enjoy your day.
