Happy Mother's Day!!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! I hope you are all enjoying a great day with your families.

Where did April go? And here it is almost mid-May! I'm sorry that I haven't posted in so long and I really don't have an excuse except that life got in the way.

We took our RV to the Ozarks in mid-April and I celebrated my birthday while we were gone. It was the first long trip we'd taken with the RV, and only the 3rd outing. DH got some practice in backing, as had to back down a road and into our campsite!

Last weekend we spent at The Elms in Excelsior Springs. MO. Our two daughters had given my DH a gift certificate for a stay there when he retired...what a lovely resort! It has quite a history as was where President Truman stayed when he was awaiting election results. There's a spa in the resort and I opted for a "Rejuvenating Hand Treatment"! The massage was wonderful as was the paraffin wax treatment. I have arthritis in my hands so the treatment was really a treat!

Now to the stitching: I finished another Little House ornament design..........Pear Tree. It was a fun stitch!

This next picture is of the block I received at my stitch group exchange. It's a design by primitivebetty. I want to finish it into a pincushion someday!

Until next time, I wish you Happy Stitching!


  1. I love that little Pear Tree! It's hard to keep up with stitching and everything else isn't it?! Hugs to you!

  2. Beautiful Finishes :)
    That pear tree is one of my personal favorites!

  3. Lovely finishes. I really like the fabric you used on Pear Tree. Perfect.

    Thank you so much for the comment on my blog. I couldn't find your email. You asked about the finish Count my Day. The pattern is by the Stitcherhood. A newer release. From the Nadhville market I believe.

  4. Hi Sharyn, thx for visiting my blog and your kind comment, very nice to meet you. I'm gonna have a peek around your blog too. I recently bought this chart, the berries did me in:)
