It has been several years since I posted here and I didn't even think about it until I received a swap from Swap-bot that said she had visited here.  So here goes nothing.  LOL.

We had to let SuzyQ go in July 2015.  She developed kidney failure at the age of 15.  So she is in heaven with her Daddy Don who she missed very much.      This picture is about a  year before she passed. 
SuzyQ and Annabelle July 3, 2014
This is Annabelle.  She originally belonged to my granddaughter who got her as a kitten in the spring of 2010.  She was bought to me when she could no longer be kept by her because of their living situation.  She is a beautiful grey and white odd eyed kitty.

Update on SuzyQ

SuzyQ is going to be OKAY.  She had thyroid surgery and the vet is very optimistic that that the other side will come back to normal.  She is getting rehydrated and starting to eat.  Will come home tomorrow.  So she will have more time with us.

Hey everyone. I know I have not posted in quite awhile. But I had to post this.  SuzyQ is my cat she is almost 13. Took her to Vet this morning because she quite eating and just dropped weight almost overnight. Anyway they just called her blood work came back that her Thyroid values are over 2 times what they should be. So I have to go back this afternoon and we will decide what to do. Anyway please pray or think healing thoughts (whatever you do) We need everyones prayers. Thank you.

The other thing I wanted to post was these pictures for this weeks Photo Hunter theme which is Lazy.  And SuzyQ fits that to a T.  There is 2 pictures of her sleeping on HER chair by the window.  2 of her laying on her back on the floor.  And the last one her curling up in my overnight bag.  Like she is saying you are not getting out of here without taking me.  Hope you like.  I will probably be posting some more pictures for the ones I didn't get done later.  

Have a great day everyone.

Saturday Photo Hunt - Clean

Okay.  Yesterdays Photo Hunt theme was clean.    On May 24, my son and I were traveling to Canyon, TX for Granddaughters HS Graduation.  Part way there he decided to stop and take a break by pulling into this small town car wash and while I stretched my legs he washed the car.  So this is my post for clean.  I will try to catch up on some of the themes that I have missed.

Happy Valentines Day

  Happy Valentine Everyone.  This is my first Valentines Day  since Don passed in November, 2011.  The last few years he had been getting me roses for Valentines.  Usually sending our daughter to pick them up.  She is working today but over her lunch break she went and got these beautiful roses in his memory.  She said the one was called tie-dyed,  it is really beautiful.  I love them both.

Now on to other things.  I have a little cross stitch happy dance.  
Just a little NeedleMagic, Inc kit that I got at Hobby Lobby last month.  Daughter likes frogs so I made it for her.    Now to go back to the OakHaven Designs 2012 SAL that I am stitching.  January was this little kitty.
  I finished it as a small notecard.  February is a cute little puppy.   Next was this plasticcanvas piece that I ran across when I was sorthing things to set up my craft closet.  
  Then last I was working on crochet 6inch granny squares for the Online Angels Charity.  I don't have a picture of them yet.

Better get this posted and then on to other things that need done.  
Have a great day!

Saturday PhotoHunt a day late.

Here is my bling.  My husband bought this ring for me for Christmas 2004.  I had never had a diamond and the rubies are our birthstones.  I love this ring and will wear it for the rest of my life.  It reminds me of all the good times that we had and how much he loved me.    RIP Don I love you.

Free Plasticcanvas Bookmark

Bookmark  made using the Mosiac Stitch.
Size is 10 threads by 36 threads (9 holes x 35 holes)  using  7 count clear plastic canvas.
I used 2 different colors to be able to show how to do this stitch.  Can be done in 1 color also just follow the pattern as shown for the different colors.

To begin come up at A and down at B, up at C, down at D,  up at E, down at F.  This makes the square that comprises the Mosiac Stitch.  To continue the pattern count over 5 holes starting at E then come up at G and down at H.  Continue following your pattern till you have completed the first color.
For 2nd color begin at 1 and come up then down at 2, up at 3, down at 4 and continue as numbered on picture.

Saturday PhotoHunt

The theme this week is gather.  So here is my picture.  Family gathering around truck at son's house in preparation for the fireworks on July 4, 2011.  Such a great evening.

Happy New year everyone.  I will be spending at least part of it over at my sons house.  They don't want Mama (me) to be alone this evening.  Depending on how things go I don't have to come home as our motorhome is over there and it has 3 extra beds for anyone who doesn't want to drive home.
