An Early Celebration, a Prayer Request and Craft Ideas

Hey there Everyone,

Just a quick shout out to my wonderful hubby for taking me out to my favorite Mexican restaurant for lunch today. I am thinking it was an early celebration of our 8th year Wedding Anniversary. It was scrumptious!

I've been busy working on my first cross stitch pattern. it is a small simple one. I will try to get it posted by the end of the week. Key word try,lol.

Crafts may be slowing down for me if I am not able to get an eye examine I desperately need but cannot afford and my health insurance will not pay for it. I have had multiple episodes where my vision turns completely milky white on me and I cannot see or even focus for about a minute each episode and it happened twelve times yesterday. It really is quite scary when it happens.  So keep me in your prayers, please!

I still have not had the chance to work on my own Wildflower Pincushion yet. My sister-in-law just loves hers. I gave it to her yesterday while we were celebrating my husband's parent's 62nd Wedding Anniversary. Wow! That is a long time to be married in a day and age of what I call "Disposable Marriages" . Congratulations Dot and Don!

I got my Candlewicking pattern today and my cute little fabric cats pattern. I am still waiting on my rose cabochons and my "Mystery Bag of Floss", but at least it is 100% DMC. I am really excited about it and cannot wait to see what colors I do get with it!

A journal I made for myself.

A journal I made fro my sister-in-law Suzy for her birthday.

Baby photo album I jazzed up for my Great Nephew to be who is slated to my his first appearing on June 24th I believe. Can't Wait! So excited to see the little angel!

This is the beginning of an Eyeglasses Case I made out of the rim of an old Christmas stocking. it was really easy to do. Free Mini Tutorial::  Cut 2 squares of felt the same size. Sew up the long edge and the bottom with right sides together turn right side out then slip the second case inside the first and topstitch the top edge. :o) Then you can add either flowers as I have done or, add beads, or even Embroider the square before you start making it. Using the rim is fine for small glasses, but if you have bigger just use a bigger square to accommodate yours :o).  

As always, Happy Creativity and Joy until next we meet!
