Catch Up

My life became a little crazy in November and then threw me into a wall in December....but is now calming down.
In November I found and purchased my first home. I found a little townhouse and moved in mid-November. Around the first of December I became extremely ill with a "possible" diagnosis of diverticulitis, which was officially confirmed the first of this month and was finally given instsructions/guidelines on how to heal and proceed from here.
Moving on to the fun stuff....I picked up a few Prairie Schooler patterns:

Very excited about these patterns!

And (drum roll, please) I have two stitching finishes...

Tonight will be amazing....

I am so excited ... tonight Renee Fleming, the most celebrated soprano of our time is presenting a special concert at Florida State University's Ruby Diamond Concert hall in conjunction with the 35th anniversary of the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra. I am treating myself to this concert as an early 60th birthday present. This will be a once in a lifetime event for me. I have been lucky enough to watch her in several Metropolitan Opera's Live in HD performances.

A Thank You and an Update

I would like to first of all thank Bernie from Needle and Foot, a new to me blog. She had a giveaway for some Downton Abbey Christmas fabric and I received it late last week. I have already picked out the needlework pattern to stitch to make it into an ornament for my tree.

It is a simple fabric with black lettering with a sprig of holly in green and red.

Now for the update. I went to back to Bernina today to get the name of the fabrics that I had purchased and showed you in my last post. They are from the Heavy Metal collection by Camelot Fabrics. One of my sisters asked for some for Christmas, so I went back to buy some before they ran out....but she cannot have it until Christmas (hee hee hee).

Update on Stitching and Sunday Stash

Those of you that know me, know that I am not a quilter, but I do sew and I do have a fabric stash....well, I have discovered the most fabulous, blog, Molli Sparkles. Every Sunday he does a Sunday Stash linkup and today I am joining it as I found the most gorgeous metallic fabric at my LQS, Bernina Connection, (I do not know the designer, but will look that up the next time that I visit)

and this from Joann Fabrics.

Gorgeous!! And of course, no idea what I will be making....

As for my stitching, I have an update on the mourning sampler for my dad

I am not sure what count this fabric is as it is a mystery linen, but I am stitching 2 over 2. I also started 2 ornaments for my tree, one is Harry Potter Deathly Hallows and the other is Love by the Stitcherhood.

And that's what I have been doing in the needle side of my life.
