Hi everyone!

I have been busy getting things caught up this week.  I started to work on my forget me knots and had problems with the templets    turned out to be the printer settings set wrong. I got that fixed and  started working on the arch boarder I managed to get three ready to sew for today. Later today I will see about getting the next six ready and then I will sew them over the weekend.

I am working on my Ranchers Daughter block for this week should have it done here in a little while.

I worked some on my April cross stitch sal

I nearly finished my Spring quilt swap just the name  patch to put on and get it all washed.

I also made a x-mas stocking for a swap just need to get the hand work done on it.

Over the weekend my husband helped me get the  bathroom and bedroom sorted back out. After his shower install  we still had wall paneling to re hang ( had to take it down to get to the plumbing) and all the pics to be re hung so after that was done he vacumed the ceilings and  moved the bed    and chest of drawers to do under them as well.  amazing what you can find when you do that!!  rooms look and smell so much better now!!

Afterwards we went out side and  I helped him to get the gardens started. we weeded the beds that  we have completed and then put down what mulch we had, took away walkway and some of the old surrounds to re shape the garden made it easier for him to cut with a mower instead of a  weed eater. will miss the large garden but I am not able to keep it up and he doesn't have the time.  We will have more to do on it but it will have to wait until next month when we have a little extra money  this month is all gone on the shower.

My fairy tree rose came up good this year where I planted it.  I was allowed to keep one. I used to have a whole bed with just these but hubby hated them where they were and finally talked me into giving them away BIG mistake I really miss them but we felt they were too dangerous for Daisy our blind dog  to get around she kept walking into them and I know they hurt so away they went.!!!

crype myrtle
The Crype Myrtle trees are doing good as well one is full of greenery and the other is at least alive!! can't wait until they come out in full bloom.

this is step 4 of the POF mystery I finished this one the same day!
My son got a new job , He will start on Monday still working on 18 wheelers (mechanic)  but the pay is better  he will work the mid shift again though so not so good for my routine but thats ok I will get used to it again. 2pm-11pm  .  Hubby talked about changing jobs he was offered one with really good pay and hours but they still haven't called him back to go do the rest of the paper work so don't know if he will go or not scared to let the medical insurance go for awhile with the way our health is the new company won't have insurance for  90  days  and we will have to change the life ins back to portable so we will see what he decides later this week.   I think it is just spring fever got him again this year!!! He always talks about changing them when push come to shove he  stays put!! Got to love em for getting us  worried though!!

well I have  rambled on enough time to get some work done .  Hope you all have a great week.!
