Welcome and update

I see I have a few new followers.  Welcome!

Here is an update on A New Day.
I would be further along, but I stopped to stitch this.
Little Heart Swirl by Northern Expressions.  Sorry for the bad pictures.  I am lazy and using my tablet.  ��

Late to the party

The Grow Your Blog party I signed up for, that is.  I should have posted last night, but started feeling bad and that continued to today.  But I will introduce myself anyway, just in case someone is still out there.

I am Terri and I live with and care for my mom.  Between us we have 4 (3 outside) cats and 3 dogs.  I love to cross stitch crochet, and bead.  I have 2 sons, 4 grandsons, and 2 granddaughters.

If you have any questions or just want to chat, feel free to leave a comment or email.  My email is in my profile.

Happy New Year and thanks!

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a great Christmas and that the new year is the best ever!

A while back, Carmen over at Carden Antiques and Needlework posted that she had some fabrics available after cleaning out her stash and since I was the only one that expressed interest, she gave them to me for only $10!  Just look at all of this fabric!

There is Jubilee, Jobelan, Heatherfield, Hardanger and other fabrics in lots of colors!  Coffee, plum, white, pearl gray, blue and other colors and names I can't remember.  It was a box full!  I've already got several pulled for projects!   Thanks Carmen!!!!

I have joined an SAL started by DJ and will be back soon with a post about that,

See ya!~~

A quickie post

I won a drawing over on Inspirational Beading It was a $30 gift card from Best Beads and this is what I got.

7 colors of superduos and the last 2 tubes are crystal cubes and 4 mm rounds that I got elsewhere.  Thanks Mortira!

Bought this at our local farmer's market 

The 2 little holes are for knitting needles inserted through the yarn.  This picture doesn't do the piece justice!  It is gorgeous!

Bought this in July

A 2011 Chevy Equinox and it is loaded!  Remote start, heated seats and mirrors, sunroof, back up camera, cruise, ONSTAR, satellite radio CD player, and it even has it's own phone number!  The color is Gold Mist Metallic and I LOVE THIS CAR!

Back soon with more!
