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!

Another Photo Hunting Blog

I found another Saturday Photo Hunting site. (Click the title for link)  The theme this week is Tree Branches.  Anyway over the last few years I have taken many pictures that fit this theme so here goes.
 2007 Osage County Lake in Kansas
Same tree Osage Lake
Next 3 are in my yard just different times.

 2007 Ice Storm.
 August 2010 Summer
January 2011 Winter  Same 2 trees.

Glad this is not this year.  Although we could use the moisture.

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.
