Prayers please

My youngest granddaughter, Emmy (3) had a scan done today and they found a couple spots on her left lung and her liver.  Hopefully, they may be able to remove them via laprascopic surgery.  That's all I know at this time.  Cat is doing very well.  Cat will be 5 later this month and Emmy will be 4 in July.

Please pray for them.  Thank you!

Magic blankets.  I have done one and started a second and have plans for a third.  Here is the first.
It is done in blues and greens.  I got the idea from Zooty Owl's blog.  Google the name Zooty Owl and you will find her blog.  There is also a Facebook group called Kim's Magic Blankets.  Lots of pictures there.  These are very fun to stitch!  I'll be back soon with my second one.  See ya!~~~

Happy New Year!

I know, it's a little late.  Lots going on here.  Both mom and Catriona are doing well, though.
My first finish of the year.  From a Craftways Christmas book, stitched on 40 ct Cream Newcastle, 1 over 2, using the called for DMC.  A fun stitch!
Sorry about the wrinkles.
My new year start is this SAL from AuryTM, called Quaker Fantasies.  I am using 40 ct. Ivory with silver Evenweave from Fabric Flair and Silk Moire threads.  Another fun stitch!

Yikes!  Picture is upside down!
And another SAL I  am doing this year is Roses Blanches by Reflects De Soie.  36 ct. White linen with Dinky Dyes silk in Brambleberry, Peacock, and Charcoal.  Love how it looks so far.
I have some bead stash to show!

Oops!  Can't get it to turn.  There are 15/0 and 8/0 seeds in perm finish gold and silver, 3 colors of chatons, 2 mm pearls, and several colors of iris duos
And I have been crocheting like crazy lately, but I will show that next time.

Well, that's all for now!  See ya!~~~

Ta da!

She is done!  Angel of Spring by Lavender and Lace.  Done on 32 ct. linen with called for fibers and beads.
Picked this up at a flea market this summer.
Bought these last week.
Finished this a while back, too.  Just need to cut out and put a hanger on.

Can't get the picture to rotate, sorry.

Mom and Catriona are both doing well!  

If I don't get back soon, Happy Holidays!
