Hello my Friends,
The sun is shining here in northeast florida, so it is a good day to post. I finish my hat and framed a small cross stitch project that was sitting around for a long time. On the down side I am sick again with a cold and cough, went to the doctor on Thursday and got on some steroids and nasal sprays,,this is getting really old. My stress test came back good and he wants to see me in 6 months 15lbs lighter. But my liver ultra-sound came back abnormal so I have to wait till Thursday to find out what is going on with that.
I did get alittle more done on my Sampler Hill so I will show that to. I am working on a teacozy also but it doesn't look like much now so I will post when it looks like something. I am having a hard time with what to start knitting since I finished my hat, I have a lot of projects in mind but which one is the question. Well I think that is it for now, till next time keep stitching on whatever you are stitching and we will chat again soon.

I forgot...

Happy Sunday,
Hope you are staying cozy and warm where ever you are..The sun is shining here and that makes me happy..As the title suggest I forgot to post pictures of a finished object, if you follow me on instagram them you already have seen it, but the fact that hubby likes it makes me happy.  So here it is, it is the Bankhead Hat knitted in Deborah Norville yarn in colorway steel..

Happy Thursday...

I hope today finds you all warm and toasty. It is chilly here in North East Florida and looks like it will be for the next week. This week has been good, I am feeling a lot better and had my ultrasound on my liver today so I should get the results back early next week. I have been knitting and stitching this week and it is going really good. I am also hoping to get some sewing done this weekend as I don't have any plans to go anyplace, keeping fingers cross because I am really missing my sewing machine. I went to my stitch-in last Saturday and had a great time, missed some girls but it was a nice small crowd, then my friend Melody and I went to Panera for a bite to eat and had a enjoyable time..must do that more often Melody. Well I think that is about it for now I will leave you with some update photos to enjoy. The first is my Love Vine Hat by Maiden Brooklyn it is a paid for pattern on Ravelry and I will be knitting more of these, I have really enjoyed knitting this one, I have knitted it out of Malabrigo Yarn in English Rose colorway my favorite.
And then here is my updated picture of The Sampler Hill by With Thy Needle and Thread/Country Stitches, again I am really loving stitching this one, as I have the other one of hers I have stitch. I am stitching it on 36 count fabric in the colorway Cornsilk by weekdye works and using the recommended threads.

I'm Back....

oh my! I have been missing in action and I am sorry..This past year was a blur and the end of 2014 totally suck I was sick for the last 3 weeks of it..But I am feeling a lot better and back on my game. I just wasn't feeling like myself for most of the year and so I finally went to the doctor and got on some blood pressure medicine and now I am feeling like a human again, then I get a bad chest cough and cold and that knocks me down for 3 weeks but I am back up and running..
I did make it to Clearwater Beach for a little vacation in June for 5 days and that was really nice, we hit up Clearwater Marina and got to see Hope and Winter. I did a little crafting but not much..
I am hoping to post every week with what's happening and pictures of what I am working on...
I have been reading blogs and my new obsession is watching podcast about my crafts, if you watch them let me know which ones so I can check them out.
I am leaving you with some pictures of what I am working on and a few new books.

Starting with the top picture, I started Blackbird Design and haven't got much done but liking this one so far, I have bee wanting to stitch this one for a long time. I am also working on Sampler Hill by With Thy Needle and Thread and will post a picture of that next week.
Next picture is going to be a Bankhead Hat Knitting Natural it is a free download on Ravelry and there is a knitalong going on on Instagram by obiwanknitter, so far I am really like it and plan on making more. Then the next 2 pictures are new books I received in the mail this week and really love both of them, you can get the both of them on Amazon. Well I guess that is it for now, if you want to find me on Instagram I am Devonfl and on Ravelry I am Devon-kay. I hope you all have a good and productive weekend, till next time take care.
