Tacking on Crows

Well this post started out with me crowing about Blogger telling me this morning I am currently not following any blogs...please click add blogs you would like to follow. REALLY! This as bad as the program enhancements at work...push an upgrade and break the things that work.

Apparently it is only telling me that on my Ipad vs the laptop. OY!!

I have been dreading the moment something seriously starts to foul up on my blog, I am techno challenged. I can dig into something learn how to use, use it, but once it's built and I do not use it regularly my brain don't retain.

 I hope I have the fortitude to keep on keeping... I am still trying to figure where in the world on my blog that I change my reader. I know it's going away, I know I need to change it, but I have tore up this dashboard looking for the switch.

Well as technology get what you pay for and wait a bit and it will change again.

Will work on a more stitchy post, due for one....guess I better stitch on something. So busy and tired from work I can't see straight at night, working in the yard and preparing for our summer get-a-way!!

Ending on a POSITIVE note:

Soon, soon I will be hugging my Navy Girl!!
Who by the way officially tacked on her crows Friday, 6/14/13, on Flag Day!! Navy Girl made Petty Officer 3rd Class less than two years in, on her first testing!!
She's Da Bomb!!

Congratulations to MA3 Gass!!

Still stitching boss, still stiching....

A play on words from one of our favorite movies; Cool Hand Luke.
I have been busy as the bees in the trees, trying to get the baby gift done.

 I am having to rework the baby's name to make it line up.
She was born on Memorial Day, a 9lb, 12oz, 22in big bundle of joy. So, so happy for my friend who is going to be the greatest mother.
((scissor swipe))

Can't wait to get this one to the framer.
Was shooting for dropping it off today, but you see that's not happening.

Tripped over a new blog, new to me, Posie Rosy Little Things, while reading y'alls blogs. Dang if I can remember which one of you (give yourself a shout out in my comments please). Alicia is very creative and that baby of hers looks like a little Nordic angel; cute as a button. While reading some of her back posts I came across her Winterwoods Sampler. Yep I ordered it; how could I not.


It is perfect to display during the fall/winter in Maine.
A very charming design.
Love the colors.

Catherine received her giveaway package yesterday! Yeah! I can post a pic of the surprise I included; a Balsam pillow I made.

Mmmmm, smells like the Maine woods.
Enjoy, Catherine!

Now some picks from my Junk Hunts lately, hahaha. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. I know, I know you don't hear from me for weeks and BAM I hit you with picture overload.
You like it, I know you do. :)


A posy picked by my honey.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend and week to come.
Keeping the folks in the Midwest at the tops of our minds; be safe.
Keep on stitching.
