Have you ever used a magnifying glass while stitching? If so, did youfind it helpful?
I bought one that you hang from your neck. I could not use it all. Was to confusing for me LOL.

First I want to say a big thank you to those who read my blog and leave comments. it is nice to know that people are reading my blog. I haven't said thank you in a long time :-)

DS#2 had his lasy baseball game last night so sports is now over til the fall. DS#1 plays soccer in the fall.

DS#1 got his learners permit the end of March. he drove and hated it. Well last week he gave it another shot and liked it much better, thank god. he has signed up for drivers ed this summer so i will be busy driving him to school every morning. This should also give him more confidence. He has been looking at cars to buy LOL.

I finished stitching A Year Full Of happy May block but no pic yet.

I am also reading Impossible by Danielle Steel and enjoying it.

Today I plan on watching DVR shows and will be stitching on LK May Stamp.

I am still here

I am behind in posts again. The time just gets away from me. I have been busy reading and stitching though. Watching season and series finales as well. I will have to post my June Golas and what I accomplished in May. DS#1 is all done with Track and DS#2 had his last baseball game on Monday but has 3 makeup games. One is tonight. We were told they might not make up the other 2. I have been wacthing alot of netflix movies in the afternoons and some evenings. Our local library now has wireless, which my son is excited as he has a laptop. I am still on dial up but I am going to the library, to use their computers , every day. This is just taking me way to long. I will read my Juno emails and do my blog, every morning on my computer.
I won a gift certificate for a hair wash, cut and style so I have an appointment at 11:30 for that and the library opens at 1 so I will go there right after that.
Below are some pics of what i have been doing.

I stitched up Bent Creek May Snapper.

LK April Stamp

I stitched up LK February Block

Mondays I put in a few hours on this ornament by Vermillion Stitchery from the 2003 JCS ornament issue. Also on Mondays still stitching up sports ornaments but no pics.

Right now I am stitching on A Year Full of Happy May square.

I have had fun getting back to my reading schedule and will list what I have read when I post my goals :-) Right now I am reading Impossible by Danielle Steel. Pretty good so far.
