Some stitching getting done

Hi All,

I did finish stitching the Red B from Merry Cox, now I just need to put it into finished form!!
As I may have mentioned, we have moved to North Carolina and while packing up my stitching I have found several WIPs that I had forgotten about.  Below is yet another Merry Cox piece it is a small pin keep and it will only take a small amount of time to finish. 
I am still in Macon, GA finishing up with some commitments that I had and hope to be living in North Carolina sometime in November.  The weather there is a bit cooler than here in Middle Georgia - it is still hot and muggy!!

Have been enjoying several days of quiet with not obligations and watching TV while stitching and knitting.

Not much exciting things happening just yet, hope you all have a great weekend.

Thank you for stopping by.

Good Morning,  Well we have moved into our new house and there are boxes everywhere.  While waiting for some of the contracted work to be done in the new house I was able to do a bit of stitching and knitting.

This is a Merry Cox piece that I started in 2001.

I found this while packing up my sewing room along with other UFO's

so I have pulled out several to work on along with some newer projects.

This is my second attempt at lace knitting.

The lacy part is using a skein of Habu Mohair

the fringe part id Feather Moire

This will be a pretty scarf for the winter weather!

Thank you for visiting.

Moving Day tomorrow

Good Morning Everyone,
My hopes are that I will be able to post to my blog each week, with progress on my stitching and my life.

Tomorrow is the first part of our move - since I have some obligations that I feel I need to follow through on and since my sister (who lives with us) still has to work until the end of November - we will move part of the house to an apartment here in Macon, GA.

On Tuesday, the rest of the house, my husband, and our cats will move onto North Carolina.  Since we already have a condo there my husband and the cats will move there and the furniture will go into storage until our house we bought closes at the end of July.  This split moving is quite tricky since you are not sure if you are packing things for each place going to be correct!!!

Will stop by again next week, hopefully will have some photos and all will be settled!!

Thanks for visiting,

Returning to the blogging world

Greeting everyone,
It has been over a year since my last post, my life (like everyone else) has just gotten so busy and out of control that stitching and computering (is there such a word???) really went by the wayside.

I hope to update, my blog page but need to get use to blogging again.  I have much to read and get caught up on with everyone.

A bit of updating with myself - DH, Terry retired and we decided that we will move and retire to North Carolina Mountains.  Our Daughter, Lindsay already lives, works and goes to school in the Hendersonville area.  We have several friends there and in nearby cities that it just made sense to not only move but to downsize!  Of course the house was not much of a downsize, but the yard definitely is.  This lovely yard that we have now has become quite difficult for me to maintain - this getting old is just rough, especially kneeling and standing constantly and climbing up and down the hill to the side and back yard.  Our new house has a lovely smaller garden area and the whole small neighborhood (nine houses) are all beautifully kept.

The good and bad part of this decision to move is that we found a lovely house and that we sold our house - only thing is our house sold in 4 days!!! Not that that was bad, but it really pushed us to pack up with out necessarily being able to totally clean out.  Though we did get through enough things to have a moving sale with is tomorrow.

Hope you all will forgive the long absence and I look forward to getting to know you all once again.

Have a wonderful weekend, I am off to start pricing for the moving sale.
