Did you celebrate?

Did you celebrate "Thread Your Needle Day"? I had great plans to stitch but my day took a different direction. Instead I ...

- Noticed the dirty French Door on our deck, wrestled water hose up deck, got water on deck chair cushions, spooked cat who then scratched my hand. Realized door is no longer sealing very well when I came inside and found water all over the wood floor.

- Volunteered to make pregnant daughter suffering from morning sickness Milk Rice "just like Grandma used to make", had to go into town to get a new double boiler two hours before I was supposed to deliver food. Believe it or not, it either turned out "just like Grandma used to make" or its been so many years, we've forgotten how it tasted when Grandma made it!

- Delivered food, bought straw bale and even remembered the tarp to keep straw from attaching to everything in vehicle. Put straw around rhubarb plants. I'm sure the neighbors wonder why the only thing in my garden is rhubarb. Sometimes I wonder too.

- It was hot and humid so I came inside and went to my sewing room where I  felt guilty about Phebe so I trimmed and squared Ohio Star units. Somehow was only able to finish 6 of them but the end is in sight!

However, before I did that ... !

Anyone want to guess what the above is or shall we just say I was out in the sun too long? LOL

Here are the Ohio Stars for Phebe in process. I finished these this morning and only have 14 more to make! After making 66 of them, 14 is so doable.
Yesterday evening, I also began to applique the 6 petal flowers on LE. I guess I did some stitching afterall! 

Until next time, Mayleen


  1. Just 2 things. #1) I hope daughter is feeling better soon. #2) I hope you didn't have to share any of those yummy colors. Stitching will come and stitching will go, but chocolate is forever.

  2. Oh my!! what a day LOL!!! A bit of everything in there.....hope the weekend shapes up a bit better for you!!!!

  3. We can be so easily distracted, can't we? And then, when we "come to," can't recall what it is that we'd set out to do! You at least trudged on, getting several things accomplished, and then finding sewing time too. Happy for you to be a grandmother again - and so nearby! - but sorry to hear about the morning sickness. I'm going to be a Nana again too! We're expecting in January, right here in Florida. How about you? No surprise that we're hoping for a baby girl, since we've had three boys. This will surely be the last grandie in our family.

  4. 14 is so doable lol
    Im not looking forward to the stars.....So many stars.... :)

  5. What a great idea/yummy way to pick colors! Did you add this picture to your album?

    Hope all is well with daughter. Understand that morning sickness.

    Sorry to hear about your mom.
