I really need to learn how to take better pictures, maybe if I take them outdoors the colors would be more true. My brother saw the Eiffel Tower one and since he had been there last year confiscated it from me. Just as well, I think I would prefer a different color.

I've been reading Nora Roberts, The Hollow and although it took me no time to finish Blood Brothers, this one is taking longer. I will pursue and also read The Pagan Stone, need to know how it all ends. Any Harlequin readers out there, if you have an e-book, check their site out, 17 books for free. Now I havn't read any of their books for eons, but think they will be quick and easy reads.

I'm Back...I think

I've not blogged in some time and have tried to keep up with my reading of blogs, leaving comments once in awhile. Life has been like a roller coaster, highs and drop down lows. A co-worker of mine died suddenly June 22nd, such a shock I still can't believe it. It did make me re-think my problems and realize just how "little" they really are.
We have some guests at my work, Mama Duck and her 9 babies. They are on the patio which is the second floor. The girls in the cafeteria are kind and put out water and some kind of food for her. Not sure how she is going to get them down to the ground. I'm thinking I should pack them up and take them to Trout Lake.

Now for my stitching, here are some pictures of what I have been up to, there are more, I just don't know where I've put them. My stitching (place) is so unorganized, I surprise myself when I find something I had totally forgotten I had.Holiday Samplings

Well that will be it for today. I'm off to look for those missing stitches and maybe find some more surprises to make my day :)

Okay, why can't I "paste" my signature here like I used to. I use Microsoft Word, copy then past here and it won't work. Any idea why ?
