It has been way too long since my last posting! 
No excuses...just life gets in the way.
Wishing all my readers, friends and family a very very 
HAPPY THANKSGIVING 2012!!

My thoughts are frequently of those not here on this holiday. 
Many thanks to them for being a part of my life at some time. 
Missing you all and knowing you are sharing a better life in the open arms of our Lord.


Found this Turkey Bishop on Google...
makes me think of all my sewing and smocking friends,
 customers and teachers. 
Hoping you all are enjoying a tangle free holiday wherever you might be. 



Also found on Google..
Can't make out the verse on the bottom corner, but I do know that 
I would want to  WISH   YOU   all a wonderful Holiday Season ahead.

My Thankful feelings extend to all...for your love, support, concern and more these
past years and months.  I do miss my little shoppe and the fun of creating more than
ever could be written here. 
Now it seems to be the time of different pathways. 
There may not be another post here for a while again...
Then maybe it is time to resume the musings of a stitching mind. 

Happy Thanksgiving to All

A red rose in remembrance of my mom on this Mother's day.  And my grandmothers, my mother in law, and others who have left us.  Miss them all and know they are all celebrating every day in Heaven.

Wishing everyone a Happy Mother's Day and hope they enjoy it all will family, friends and more.

  I have noted that my postings here and other spaces have slowed to a stop.  Not because I have no thoughts to share, nor because I have not time enough, it's because I just haven't.  No excuses, no apologies, just not doing it.  Maybe my fingers will find time and talent again soon, but until then, enjoy your days, and certainly, enjoy this day and many more as every day is or should be Mother's Day.

I agree with Maxine...

How Many Years...

April 21, 1979---33 years ago---I walked down the aisle and married a prize of a man!  Four babies, once cancer scare, many moves, and lots of ups and downs...we are still going.  Not bad for a couple of kids from New Jersey.

Happy Anniversary to my hubby...He has work and soccer today. I am away on a short stitching retreat. But we still go home to each other.  Not bad for 33 years.  Smiling with memories.
A red rose for my love

Welcome 2012 - Year of the Dragon


A frozen beach---really?? yes last year on the very tip of  South Jersey..this is what 2011 looked like coming in.  For myself, that is how the year seemed...FROZEN...not warm and nice, but cold and hard.  Farewell 2011...it was not the best of our times.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Welcome 2012---this year will hopefully be a better year for all of us. Too many are plagued with unemployment, housing issues, and more.  May we all find warmth and comfort in new beginnings.  

As is my usual style...I have made some goals for myself [resolutions too].  One of which is to blog more regularly, so this post is already hours behind.  But being an oldster, [59 later this month LOL], my late night efforts are few and far between.  Throw in a few celebratory drinks and my brain fizzles and giggles!

Coming later...my escapades and efforts at New Year's treats--Danish Style.

Here is what I hope 2012 memories will look like when it comes to a close in 52 weeks.

Jeremiah 6:16 “Stand at the crossroads and look;
ask for the ancient paths, 
ask where the good way is, and walk in it, 
and you will find rest for your souls.

May 2012 bring us all good rest, good times, 
Health, Happiness and more. 

Also good stitching!! Happy New Year all
