 This is Cooper.  He was my mom's dog, was living with my son and his family, and it wasn't working out for him there, so he is living with me and Kody now. 

He is really a sweet dog.  He really misses my mom, but seems to be adjusting well.  He has been here since just before July 4.

A few pictures from around my house


Garden tub

My bedroom

One of my flower beds.  These pictures aren't the best, but give you a little idea of where I live now. I am SO VERY happy here!  

Oh, I am home with Covid - 19.  Tested positive a few days ago, but no major symptoms.  A fever, chills, coughing, and a little sneezing.  Fever has been gone for several days, but I won't be able to go back to work until after Labor Day.  So, you may see a few posts from me in that time.  I started a new project today and want to get a picture of that and a progress picture or two on another project. 

Stay safe and thanks for stopping by!~~

Terri, Kody, and Cooper!

Blog readers

I have been having very bad luck with, so have been unable to read blogs using  them.  Is there another blog reader available that works?  I will do a google search also.

Long time no post

 Hi everyone!  My son moved in with me shortly after the last post and moved out, finally, in March or April.  Things have been very busy with all of us!  I bought a new place and moved on May 25.  My oldest son is moving now to their new house.  So we are all over the place!

I have not been able to read any posts on - or do anything on there!  Anyone know what's going on?  I know not too many people still blog, but I do like to read and, hopefully, will start posting again soon.

Hope everyone is well!

Happy beading, stitching, and crocheting!

Terri, Kody, and Cooper!

 Renaissance Rose by Joan Elliott

Stitched on 32 ct. white Etamin using called for DMC except I used Kreinik 002 #4 braid instead of the Light Effects called for.  Finished 8/20/21 and I can't remember when I started it, but it has been a while.

Pulled Emma Miles out of my WIP and UFO jar to work on next.

Overdue post

 Sorry I haven't been around.   Too busy and just did not want to take the time to post.  I will let the pictures do the talking.

  Take care!
