Arrival in New Jersey & A Giveaway!

Happy Monday morning to ya!
We left my brother's house in north central PA yesterday and arrived here in New Jersey a little over three hours later.  We are all checked in to the hotel and grabbed a few groceries to get us through the first part of this week.  Masterchief has left for his first day of work already.  I don't start for two weeks yet.  I didn't sleep worth a hoot last night, up constantly glancing at the clock for some reason.  Think I might take myself a little nap today.
Here's a couple pictures from when we were at my brother's place.
Their wiener dog, Tucker found my camera case on the couch........
Maggie Mae found a comfortable spot on the other end of the couch.........
Now what kind of caption do you put on a picture of a mutt like that?  I am at a loss.  These dogs just love their Uncle Masterchief but they don't love up to me as much.  I think they sense these things.



Here's my brother and Masterchief sitting at the table looking at videos of motors and big guns.  You know...manly stuff.

We are more or less settled in here at the hotel now.  I still need to figure out how to fit all our clothes into three tiny drawers.  I think some of them are going to stay in the suitcase for a while.  After our first week of training and testing is over we will only need our work duds anyway.  As long as I have my stitching bag all is well with the world!
Hopefully I will be able to finish the second TYFS today then off to the framers!

Before I go I want to tell you about a GREAT giveaway over at Deborah's blog, CRANBERRY SAMPLINGS.  Deborah has reached 100 followers after only six months of blogging!  You can have a chance to win some wonderful stitchy goodies too!  She is having the drawing on October first and you must be a current or new follower.

Good luck to all!

On The Road Again....

Hey there friends!  I'm so sorry I haven't blogged in almost a week.  I've been very busy.  I had all good intentions of blogging before I left home but it just didn't happen.

I packed way too much stuff, as usual.  I cleaned way too much, as usual.  I didn't drive at all this time!  After driving all the way home from PA just a few short weeks ago Masterchief felt so sorry for me that he wouldn't let me drive at all.  I slept quite a bit during the trip.  I only started to hurt during the last couple hours of this trip.

"Why did you drive to PA again" you ask?  Well here's the scoop........
Masterchief and I work in the nuclear power business and it's that time once again for our Fall work.  His first day of work is Monday but we left yesterday morning so we could spend a day or two with my family here in PA.  Tomorrow morning we will drive to the hotel we will call home for the next six weeks or so in New Jersey. I start work two weeks after Masterchief does.  He is a Senior Health Physics Technician and I am just a lowly Junior Decontamination Tech.  He's been doing this for years and I only just got in the business a year ago.  We couldn't bear to be apart while he would go to work so he got me in the business as well.  I like the work but I'm also glad when it's over and we can go home together.  We work in the Spring and in the Fall when the power plants do their shutdowns for refueling.  I won't be doing any stitching during this time and I probably won't be able to blog much either.  We will be working six, 12-hour days and our one day off will be spent grocery shopping for the weeks lunch box necessities, napping, doing laundry, napping, checking on our home in KY, napping and  more napping.

I tried to stitch a little bit while Masterchief drove and I almost tossed my cookies!  OK...I don't really eat cookies but you get the idea.
Here's a quick picture I just took of my progress on Masterchief's father's TYFS........

I have to put "Navy" in there yet and the little "USA" in the heart at the bottom.  I stitched the red white and blue lines at the bottom while Masterchief drove but there was no way I could count the spaces in the linen to stitch NAVY.  That's when I would start to feel pukey!  I will finish this in the next few days and take it to The Strawberry Sampler to have the girls there frame them for me.  I think I will choose a pretty gold frame for it.  Something simple yet lending to the patriotic theme.

Here is a picture that was on the camera of rolls I made before we left.  I gave one pan to our dear friends and neighbors and Masterchief ate the second pan in short order!


This was my second try in making these rolls.  The first time I forgot to add the yeast.  I know....duhhhh!!!!  

Thank you so much for visiting with me today.  I appreciate all your visits and comments.

I'll leave you with a picture that was taken just moments ago.........
These are my brother and sister-in-law's two dogs, Maggie Mae and Tucker, L to R.  Who needs a dishwasher when you have these two helpful souls in your home?  Why is it I'm surrounded by hounds wherever I go????  

Until next time.....
Have a wonderful weekend.

UUUGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

If I could only get off this computer long enough to actually STITCH SOMETHING!!

Since I can't seen to post anything on here without at least ONE picture.....here is one of the end of our house.
Masterchief just finished putting up the siding on the addition.  When all this is done, we will have added four feet to our bedroom, we will have a 12x15 bathroom, Masterchief will have a small workshop and also a garage for his beloved truck.  My tiny little bathroom will become a closet.  Here's a picture taken back on December 1, 2009 when Masterchief and our dear neighbor and friend hand dug the most beautiful footer I have ever seen!

Here is our home as it was when the framing began.....

Here it is as it looks today.....

The last two windows are Masterchief's new garage.  When  I see it with the addition on the end I think that our house was awful short because it looks "normal" to me in length the way it is now.

I can't wait until it is all finished.

OK.....I'm going to get off of this thing and see if I can stitch only a few crosses tonight.  I can only imagine what I could show for progress if I could keep away from blog browsing for a while.
Well it's all your fault....yes YOU!!  All those beautiful finishes and pictures of your progress.  How could I not look?

Thanks for stopping by and BIG thanks for commenting here.  Am I the only one who gets a little flutter of the heart when I see a notice in my email that someone has left a comment on my blog???   I really do appreciate every one!

Have a pleasant Monday.  This week will be a busy one for me.  What are your plans this week?

Critters & Progress

How does the day get away from me like this?
This morning we woke up with a jolt!  The wind started howling and the curtains were blowing.  The breeze caught the bedroom door and slammed it shut while we slept.  YIKES!!!  It was impossible to get back to sleep while our hearts were beating four times faster than need be.

So I did what any self respecting chocolate lover would do....I made BROWNIES!
I made two kinds of BROWNIES!  First I made Edgar's recipe for these gooey chocolate/peanut buttery bars.  Ohhhh...it's a sin to create these things. I should have taken a picture but as soon as they were cooled I cut them up and gave half to the neighbor and put the other half in the freezer.  I needed them out of my sight!  I also made a batch of regular brownies for Masterchief.  He doesn't like peanut butter mixed with chocolate.  I know, I know...there's something wrong with him there.  I manage to love him anyway.

Masterchief and I went for a bike ride the other night.  Here's picture of me trying to catch up with him.  I stopped to feed the miniature horses some apples...

When we returned home most of the tobacco fields around us had either already been cut or were in the process of being harvested.  Here is just one of the barns filled with the stuff.....

Took the camera with me during my walk one day this week.  Came across some very curious onlookers...

Mr. Epperson's pup is growing so fast...but it looks like he needs to grow into his ears


Those of you who know me just a little know that I'm not a big animal lover.  It's not that I don't like them, I just choose not to have a pet right now.  Maybe some day.  One that doesn't shed.....or drool....do they make them?
Don't dogs sense these things?  Look what followed me all the way home.........
Count them....FIVE DOGS!!!  Good grief.

Here's my progress on TYFS....
This one has Masterchief's father's name and dates on it.  I need to get it finished so I can take both of them to The Strawberry Sampler for framing.

Took a nap today, much like the neighbors adopted stray who has made my front flower bed his personal litter box.    ****SIGH****
There's my week so far.  Thanks for sharing it with me.
Also thank you all SO MUCH for your kind comments on my patriotic pin keepers!  I had alot of fun making them and I look forward to making more with other fabrics.

Hey!  Tomorrow is FRIDAY!  YAY!!  Hope it's a good one for you dear friends.
Thanks for stopping by....

I DID IT!!

I'm very excited about these little pinkeeps!  I don't consider myself to be very crafty but I can usually follow a detailed tutorial like Olga's HERE.  I found her pin cushions by searching through blogs found on blogs....found on blogs.  Do you ever do that?  I thought they were the cutest little things and the size can vary depending on the size of the jar lid you choose to use.  Mine are different in size and I filled them with crushed walnut shells instead of poly-fill.  I like the weight it gives to them.

Well here they are.............


Now you knew they would have to be patriotic in style, didn't you?   :)

The hardest part was gathering the bottom up over the lid but it wasn't so bad.  I'm not used to working with a sharp needle so my fingers are a bit sore today.  I ran the eye-end of the needle through my finger!  OUCH!  I had a thimble close by but I just can't seem to operate with that thing on my finger.  I suppose as with anything, if I used it more often I would be OK with it.
A big THANK YOU to Masterchief who helped me stuff the little things.  I spooned the crushed shells in and he packed them down in there so I would have solid pinkeeps.

Well it's time for a Sunday afternoon nap.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Yard Sale Finds & Some Creativity......

Good Saturday morning to you all!

It rained here ALL NIGHT...waking me up around 3am.  It wasn't the rain so much that kept me awake but a dog in the distance voicing his opinion about the getting left outside in it!  I will not complain though (about the rain).  We really needed it.

The little town closest to us had their annual "15 mile yard sale" yesterday.  I should say they started it yesterday.  They quickly got rained out and were left scrambling for their bright blue tarps to throw over their goodies.  I managed to get to a couple of them before it really started to come down.  Here's a pic of what I found........
The basket I'm told was handmade by this woman's daughter.  It's a quite solid basket with a very sturdy bottom (that description could be used for many of us).  I picked it up for only 50 cents!  The next item is a small purse made of some sort of jute...maybe???  Anyway, a small purse forces me to only carry what I think I might need because my back can't handle the weight of a larger purse hanging from my shoulder anymore. It was $2.    I collect cobalt blue glass so this little jar was a must have.  It's very narrow so it will fit nicely on a window sill.  I think it was also $2.  The cute little seven-inch ruler was only 50 cents.  We also collect blue Ball canning jars.  We now have so many that we are more selective in buying them.  According to our research this one was made between 1910 and 1923.  The offset "PERFECT MASON" only happened for two years during that period.  We picked it up for $3 and the bugs inside were FREE!!  Now folks that's like walking up to a pay toilet and finding the door unlocked.  (I humbly apologize to my early followers who have found that line in this blog before).

I worked on ABC Tapestry a little bit yesterday but nothing really picture worthy.  I promise to take a pic of it soon to post.  I'm having a bit of a problem finding a comfortable position to stitch in.  After painting the living room I rearranged the furniture and it doesn't quite lend itself to easy stitching.  I have ABC on a big stand and it needs to fit over the chair I'm sitting in.  It won't work if I sit on the end of the couch and it's a bit too close to the arms of my great grandmother's rocking chair and I don't want to scratch them.  I'm left with one chair and I'm doing my best to make it work.

Masterchief should soon be back home.  Our church has a men's breakfast in Somerset once a month and he needed to pick up a couple things at Lowe's afterward.  I asked him to bring me home a roll of double sided tape as well.  I'm trying to make an adorable little pin cushion, tutorial found HERE.  I don't consider myself to be nearly as crafty and creative as most others but I'm giving this a whirl.  I'm up to the point of needing the tape so I'm waiting for Masterchief to deliver.  I make no promises that mine will look as beautiful as Olga's!

The SUN is shining and I need to be out in it!
Grab yourself some sun today

Home Again, Home Again......

Yes, I did a jiggity-jig when I got in the door of my home!
Masterchief and I have decided this will be the LAST long drive for me.  It only took a few hours on the road for us to realize that.  A little refresher for those of you that might not remember........
Masterchief left for work in New Jersey in late July.  Come mid August we couldn't stand to be apart any longer so I drove to PA where the second part of his job was and stayed with him at a hotel until we both came home together....now this is the important part.....driving our separate vehicles, on Labor Day.  Masterchief doesn't mind driving.  Even on long trips.  I never used to mind it either but my hind quarters have other ideas.  Now I can only drive a couple hours when I need to stop and stretch.  I get in such pain I could almost cry.  This time it was my hips.  Other times it's my back or that funky little nerve that runs from your lower back, down a butt cheek of it's choice into the upper back part of my thigh.

This morning Masterchief left for Hopkinsville, KY to get siding for the addition on the house.  He tried real hard to get it around here but he was told it was discontinued.  It's a three hour drive.  I had put my new jeans on (bought at my favorite store, Tractor Supply) and also broke out my new pair of sneakers (bought online from K-Swiss...the only sneaks I will wear) and planned on riding along until I found out my bee-hind was going to be planted on his truck seat for a total of 6 hours!  I bowed out at the last minute and dug out my comfy pants and house socks!

So....I'm HOME!  HOME....what a wonderful word.  I missed it so!
HOME....to my sweet, squeaky little hummingbirds.........

To my knock-outs................

To my lavender, which I gave a serious cutting............
That stuff just takes over like wildfire!

While visiting with my brother and his wife in PA they took us to a few antique shops and flea markets on Sunday afternoon.  I found a couple scissor frogs.......
 The one on the left is the smallest one I've seen.  My smallest pair of scissors fit in there nicely.

We arrived home to a beautifully manicured lawn!  We both are so grateful to our neighbor who cut our lawn while we were away.  It's no easy task either.  We have a HUGE lawn!  We own the lot the house is on of course, the lot next to us which now has the addition on part of it, and the two lots below us.  One BIG square.  There was already a house built on the other side of us or we would probably have scarfed that one up too!  This assures us that we will have a nice buffer zone between us and the neighbors.
It's not nearly enough to show our gratitude to our neighbor for taking care of our lawn but I made him an apple pie yesterday (one for Masterchief too).........

Now I've been making apple pies for years but Masterchief says this one was the best I've made!  I thought he wouldn't like it at all.  I usually use Granny Smith apples for a pie but thought I'd try Macintosh this time.  I picked up what I thought was two 3lb. bags of Macintosh  and ended up with one Macintosh and one of another kind.  I can't remember exactly what kind it was.....something with "red" in the name of it.  Anyway....they both are a soft apple so I added almost 1/2 cup of flour to them along with the usual sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon because I thought they'd be juicy and the pie wouldn't hold together.  It turned out to be the most delicious pie I've made!  What do ya know about that?!?

As soon as I hit "publish post" here I'm going to drag ABC Tapestry out of the office to my chair in the living room and work on block D.  Here it is how I left it.........

My goal before leaving for work in two weeks is to finish block D and get a good start on block E.  I also have to finish TYFS for Masterchief's dad so I can take them both to The Strawberry Sampler for framing.  Coffin Buzz and Colonial Dry Goods weren't finished yet when we scrammed out of PA so I'll pick them up when we return to that area in early October.

While staying in Malvern, Pennsylvania I met one of the fellas Masterchief works with.  One Friday evening we all went over to Wegman's (I miss that place already) for dinner from their cafe'.  Cameron told me he plays guitar.  I didn't want to be rude but he probably would have been surprised if I DIDN'T ask....."how exactly do you play?"  You see, he was born with one arm ending just below his elbow.  He said something about duct tape and it must have hit me funny after one glass of wine because I laughed till I cried.  Now any of you that knows someone that was born with any type of disability like this must also know that they aren't all sensitive about it so he took no offense of course.  After dinner Masterchief and I went up to his hotel room to hear him play and DAMN....that boy is GOOD!
He used duct tape to fasten a guitar pick on the end of his arm and you'd never know he didn't have five fingers right there!  Cameron is a very nice young man.  He and his wife are expecting a child soon.  I'm not sure if it's their first or not but I'm so happy for them.

While visiting with family in northern PA I took my son to go see our grandmother in the nursing home.  She has always responded to men differently than women.  She was the flirty-type even before her mind went south so this is no surprise.

 She absolutely loved Josh...played with his beard, his shirt sleeve, the very colorful tattoo on his arm.  A few things she said even made sense.  They must have put her to bed for a nap right after lunch because that's where she was when we arrived.  The bed was so very low to the floor that Josh sat on the floor next to her bed to visit with her.  This tells me she must have a problem with falling out of bed.  I'd rather they do this than restrain her to the bed!  I worked in a couple nursing homes years ago and I remember having to strap some residents to the bed rails so they wouldn't fall out or hurt themselves.  I hated doing it.  I didn't work in that line of business too long!

This turned out to be a much longer post than I thought it would be.  Thank you for putting up with my rambling and also a BIG THANK YOU for all the wishes for a safe trip home.  It was safe....but painful for my hiner...is that a word?  :)
When we travel back to New Jersey for work at the power plant Masterchief will be doing ALL of the driving!

Lastly, I leave you with this sweet little angel I found while antique/thrift shopping in PA.  This is yet another thing I collect.....figures of angels with no paint on them.  Just plain, simple angels.  My heart breaks when I see them in a thrift or antique store all stained and weathered.  This one needed a serious meeting with some soap and a soft toothbrush!  She looks just fine now and is among my other sweet angels on my shelf.

Masterchief called a little over an hour ago.  He picked up the siding and is on his way home.  I missed him after the first hour!  Aren't we just hopelessly in love?  I wouldn't have it any other way.

Thanks for stopping by to read this l-o-n-g post.  Hopefully I will have some tapestry progress to show you next time.

Take special care of YOU!

Homeward Bound....

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!
WOO-HOO!!!!

Masterchief received word at quitting time on Wednesday that today would be his last day.  I've packed the room up and put what I can in the car.  The rest will go in the back of his trusty old pick-up.  I just love that thing!  It's a 1990 GMC.  She has some rust on her and she's showing her age but hey....let's not cast the first stone, huh?

So now that I have the car packed and everything cleaned up in the hotel room I'm sitting here bored to death!  I even packed my stitching away...how dumb was that?  I deserve at least 20 lashes with a wet noodle for that one!

For today's post I thought I'd tell you a bit about myself.  I'm not sure if I've done this before but I've seen it on other blogs and I've always found it very interesting to read of others likes, dislikes....etc....

Now these things are going to be very random in order.  Whatever pops in to my mind.  I'd like to give credit to the Stitch Bitch for blogging about herself on Wednesday, July 28 2004.  I love her very humorous way of blogging and have borrowed a few of these from her with my own answers.

1.  I like primitive designs.....but not TOO primitive.
2.  If I was made to choose I would say my favorite color is any shade of green but I love all colors found in an old sampler.
3.  I have an innie....waaaayyyyyy in!  That's what surgery does to one's button.
4.  I like cobalt blue glass and blue willow dishes.
5.  Two of my pet peeves: a man without a shirt and a woman with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth.  Now don't get me wrong, I have nothing against a woman who chooses to smoke but really...take a drag and then remove it from your lips!
6.  I like anything having to do with apples, of any color.
7.  I collect wooden nickels.
8.  I HAVE cut my own hair, and learned from it.
9.  If I could be any age for a day other than 42 (which I am now) I would choose to be 61 because that is how old Masterchief is.  After which I would say something to the effect of..."YOU CAN HAVE IT"!!!!
10.  If you don't count going to New York with my grandmother when I was a child I never made it out of Pennsylvania before I met Masterchief.....or went anywhere on an airplane.  My life began when I met this man!  He has promised to show me the world and if I never travel a mile I will have seen it only by looking in his eyes.
11.  My favorite number is 14.
12.  I love ANYTHING patriotic.
13.  I once weighed 227 lbs. and wore a size twenty-two pant.  I now weigh anywhere between 145 and 150 and wear an eight or a ten.  When the scale says 149 I panic.  I once ate everything except for okra and when I say everything I mean EVERYTHING!  I now eat vegetables as my main staple and seafood occasionally.
14.  NO....I am NOT a vegetarian.
15.  I am addicted to pretzels....the ones that aren't absolutely coated with salt.
16.  I strongly believe in re-gifting.  I would rather something I gave be given to someone who absolutely loves it than think it might be thrown in the back of a closet somewhere.
17.  I don't care to own a pet right now.  I was raised with either a cat or a dog in the house...or BOTH!  I can't stand hair, drool. or cat litter thrown about the floor.  Besides, it wouldn't be fair for me to own a pet right now when we travel so much for work.  This is not to say I won't own a pet some day.  Someday a little ball of fluff will win my heart and I'll put up with all those things I just said I can't stand!
18.  I was first married at age 16.....divorced at 18.....remarried at 21.......divorced at 33.....remarried at 37.  This one is IT!  I can't believe I had to go through all that to find the one I was supposed to be with.
19.  You probably know this one....I'm expecting my first grandchild in early November.
20.  I was reallllllyyyyyy blonde when I was a teenager.  What happened?
21.  I don't watch soap operas.  I don't really watch much T.V.  although I do enjoy old movies on the TCM channel.  I pick on Masterchief for liking the typical "old fart" channels like The History Channel, The Weather Channel, and Discovery Channel.


That's all I can think of now.  I hope I didn't completely bore you.  I've always found these things interesting to read of others.

I went to the laundromat this morning so I wouldn't have to carry home much dirty laundry.  I stitched on TYFS while there.  I was surprised that no one came up to me to ask me what I was making.  Usually when I stitch in public people are drawn to me.  Does this happen to you?  I can't say I blame them...I would stalk them like an Elvis worshiper!  I got the words "Thank You For Serving" done.  I can't take a picture 'cause like I said earlier....I packed it up already....bring on the wet noodle!!

I probably won't be posting for a while.  We are going to visit with my family a bit north/northwest of here until Monday morning when we will leave for Kentucky.  That trip takes about 12 hours and we have both vehicles this time.  I will probably need to stop more often than if Masterchief was traveling by himself.  I'm famous for falling asleep while driving.  He will be keeping a good eye on me, that's for sure.

Thanks for reading such a long post.  Sorry I don't have any pictures.

Until next time...

Skippack & Other Things...

Ok...lets see how this goes.  I'm sitting here at the Wegman's Cafe'...goosebumps on my arms (cause I'm always so cold in air conditioning) hoping I have decent internet long enough to post all these pictures.

Here's few pictures of things I picked up while shopping in Skippack with Vera on Sunday.......

magnets


blue willow items

childs blue willow tea cup

chopsticks and teabag holder

We ate at Basta Pasta.  I'm so glad Vera suggested it.  The salad I had was very good and Masterchief ordered something having to do with meatballs...well it smelled good anyway.

Here we are at the table on the porch......


I'm so glad we were able to meet with Vera and her husband while here in PA.  We had a very nice time with them.  Masterchief and I must be a couple of light-weights though because we both collapsed on the bed upon returning to the hotel room and napped for two hours!  

Every Thursday there is a small farmers market held in the lower end of a parking lot very close to the hotel.  I bought these soaps there.  I wish you could smell them!  
  

While visiting with my son and daughter-in-law last week I stopped at The Village Stitchery (go back a couple posts) and bought the goodies to make this.....
The linen is R&R Reproductions Iced Cappuccino, 30 count.  I've seen Rose Garden by BBD finished many times on blogs I read and swoon every time!  I bought The Gentle Art Simply Shaker's Antique Rose for the roses but thought I'd do the leaves in a very pretty green color.  I'd tell you what it is but I'm not in the hotel room to look at it and I can't see it from the picture here.  

Still (slowly) working on Thank You For Serving for Masterchief's father.  It's very slow going I'll admit.  Living in the country I'm not used to having so many places to shop go so I haven't been doing much stitching. Before I know it the day has passed and Masterchief is home from work wondering where dinner is!   Here is what I have done so far.....
The flag takes a long time to finish.  When I'm done with those white stripes It will flow a bit easier.  I need to find out the exact dates he was in the service though.  I think a call to Maine (Masterchief's mother) is in order. 

I can no longer feel my toes or my nose.  I knew I should have packed a sweater.  I need coffee.  All that sounds so ridiculous considering I know it's over 90 degrees right outside this window.

We will be heading a few hours farther north where I grew up for the holiday weekend, leaving as soon as Masterchief gets off work on Friday.  I'll be sure to pack the camera with a fully charged battery...oh and that memory card thingy too (like I've never gone off and forgotten that, right?)

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit with me today.  I appreciate all the time it takes my stitchy friends to blog and comment.  I have gained a new respect for all of you.  It really does take some time to put a post together, doesn't it?

Have a great weekend!
