Savanna helping Dad to see if his books balance..I am sure she is a lot of help but then she is daddys little girl as she should be.  Oh they do grow up so fast.

Ohhh so long

My goodness I have been so busy that I had to go to the old blogger to get back on.  LOL Still making them little x's and now am doing a little of quilt block making.  Have always wanted to make a quilt so I have litle blocks and material laying all over this house.  Of course the dog has a ball with them.
I still do not have Cinderella done but working on her.  She is really getting pretty.
My daughter is stil here and working at the Sierra Health care center. (CNA)  has her a car now and a new boy friend that she cares about so everything is cool with her.
Seems like I have no time to get on here anymore ...had my computer go down down so lost my email addys, my readers on my blog and still trying to hunt them all down. Of course you know you have to change your email and etc. but I am back on I love cross stith and will be anwering
Debra pretty quickly.  She probably thinks I have forgot all about her but I have not and Nancy Murdock..I do manage to get to read some of the news on the web site and see all the pretty finishings an starts.

Think I will check out here for a while and get some pictures rounded up. This is little Logan on his first birthday.  Such a sweetie but still have not seen him. Forgot I had this one on here.  Of course when old comp dies pictures did to till I get someone to take them off or maybe I will figure it out in my spare time.

ANOTHER UPDATE...I AM STILL AROUND

Have the old fairy godmothers face and working
on Cinderella word now.
Boy this blog has really changed. Hope  I can figure it all out. I am so glad to feel better and maybe get to stick around a little now that everthhing seems to be settling down again.
My daughter Susan that came to stay with me got her CNA yesterday and I am so proud of her and of course she is happy. 
Grand kids all growing and getting cuter by the day.
The motel is usually full on the week ends but we are getting busy during the week too so that is a good thing.
Our dog Rescue is growing so big but he does look like the 15 pound pomeranian and he thinks he runs this place and is good with the guests. They love him.  He really is a sweetheart , I will get a picture in a little while. Well there he is about 4 months ago.Of course he's on my desk but I have a cute one of our table centerpiece (of which he is not to be on). Cannot find the picture.  Will have to catch him again. Also found out he is most likely the deerhead chihuahua pomeranian.

Got a new picture of my 4 year old great cowboy. He got stuck with something when he was trying to escape his grandma.  Too funny.
Well got some cross stitching done this week so will show it tomorrow. Sure hope I ge this done for
 the State Fair this year.

Slip out of here for now I will so keep your needles smoking..

BACK TO CROSSTITCHING AND SETTLING DOWN.

Well  I think I am starting to settle down a little.  Love the new job and my daughter is here from Phoenix to visit a while.  She had kidney stone surgery on both kidneys so she needed to rest and recuperate but my girl in housekeeping is quitting so she is teaching Susan how to clean the rooms quick...She loves it.

Have been on my cross stitch a little so I think I will put a picture on to show this time.

I think I am probably half way through some up in the right hand corner and about half of the bottom.  Looking good.  I love the little mouse in the shoe up in the left hand corner.  Cute.
Been reading all the cross stitch posts and checking blogs and pictures.  Want to welcome all you new ones.  I know you will enjoy it here and will be helped with just about anything you want to do with a needle.
Forgot who had the lovely new room on the ILCS group that her son built her but it is very very nice and looks so comfortable.  Such a lucky momma.

Oh yow got a new great grandson and Savanna has a new little brother.  How about him..I have not seen him yet but I plan on it..
Well you know what... I do not have anything else for this time.  I am on oxygen now because it is so low and also going to the pain management to take care of back and legs I hope..
Keep the needles smoking on the cross stitch site as there are a lot of SAL's going and BAP going as well. Welcome to the group all you new ones too.  You will surely enjoy.

BUSY BUSY IS MY LIFESTYLE NOW...

Man have I ever been busy here at my new job of managing a 12 room motel in Truth or Consequences, NM.  I was hired to pick it up and get it off the ground and I do believe I am going to make them some money after I think 6 years. I love it and it is a challenge which is what I need to keep this old  mind working.

I sure have not had time to do any cross stitching but maybe 300 stitches in 3 months.  BUT I am about all moved in, drapes up,blinds up, rugs down on hardwood floor, painting, hanging my cross stitch and being tired at night so not much cross stitching if any.  Sometimes I hit my chair and I do believe the old eyes are shut before I get comfortable.

My oldest grandson and the dad of Savannah is going to make me a great granny again and it is a boy so this will be their last child. Sure am glad because granddaughters will be getting started.  

My knitting is just laying around too.  I started a new dish clothwehen I got over here and still do not have it finished..I have it laying on the table and usually try to do a row or two in the morning during coffee but that that does not always happen either.

Since I am full again....4th night in a row....and I have my no vacancy sign on I am going to try for a few stitches tonight. 

So until I get enough stitches to see a big difference I will make you wonder how much I have done. No Picture......  Have been lurking on the boards and checking stitching for others and many there are some pretty things going on....Want to welcome all the new ones, the ones that have returned after a spell like me, prayers to all that are ill or have illness in the family, hugs to all ..and hopefully I will get in an exchange soon. I miss all the action.  Was so sorry to read about Rene and thankful that I was lurking and was aware of it.  Really miss her posting .. and  she was quite the stitcher and starter.LOL Felt like many of you..like we had met and really knew each other.  RIP Rene...

I know this is a long one and I am missing out on maybe 2 stitches instead of one.  LOL  So until the next time..happy stitching to all.
