My morning seems stuck...

Going to be one of those days. You know the kind. It will be forever stuck in a time warp. It is what happens when you have on/off sleep. When you just can not seem to get going. Thankfully, I do not have to be anywhere until work at noon.
The stitching for Stitching Buddies is complete and I will be looking for fabric today to finish it. Loved working with Patty's design. Look what was crawling around my tea cups this morning....
When you can't sleep you create. They will be going to sit in someone's Christmas tree this December. I guess there are many combinations I can make depending on color schemes....any ideas?
Well, time to continue to wake up...maybe another cup of coffee and the morning paper will help. Welcome to new friends. I really appreciate that you take the time to visit and leave me kind words. I see Ms Zoe is back from her two minute walk around the yard. She is staring through the screen door...best let her in before she panics and gets lost out there. Have a wonderful day my friends.

Early morning quiet

I love the quiet of the early morning  Before the sun is bright and only the sounds of the hummingbird visiting the feeder. We finally have early cool temps so the slider is open and as I sit here I can listen to the gurgle of the pond water. If I approach the  pond slowly, the fish can be seen floating lazily close to the  surface. It is a small pond, but very nice to have. Lizards scurry around as they see or hear me outside. Just me...Mr H is still asleep and Ms Zoe is too.
I have been stitching and getting ready to do the final finishing on  a few projects. Then they will be ready to mail off for my exchanges. I will be making some of those Christmas spiders this weekend and then they too will be ready to scatter around to new homes for the  holiday. I am almost ready with my SSCS package.... This is my second year that I am participating. You can click on the picture right side bar to read all about it.
Look what I found in my garden this morning...
Mr H said as long as I was making spiders, how about a black and red one for him....Be ready to let me know what color you would want for your Christmas tree....soon I will be  posting and then selecting.... so watch for the post soon.
Speaking of Christmas trees.... I found this to add to my tree this year... well one of my trees...
She is simply labeled Russian Doll... I do love these Matryoshka dolls and over the weekend found a few cross stitch patterns. I see a few free standing dolls in my future. But for now, I think a cup of coffee and toast with Prickly Pear Jelly is the only thing in my immediate future. So happy to have you visit with me today. Thank you for the kind words. I love hearing form you. Welcome to a few new friends..... have a great day.
