LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that)

American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again.

HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next.

  9. Hi. I just found your blog and love it. I enjoy reading about your son. I'm sorry he is having troubles with bullies and I'm glad you found out. I am also a fan of the American flag sampler. I met Karen from Rosewood manor at the sewing expo show this Aug in Indianapolis. I bought here Old Glory kit with the fabric and Halloween sampler and some smaller charts. The Halloween is made up of lots of quilt blocks like pumpkin, witched hat, ghost walk and more. Dont you love all the cool black work she adds to call lot of her patterns. Are. You using different threads for american flag sampler? If so I would love to know what you substituted:-)

Using Evernote for my planner

In my last post, I mentioned how I am using Evernote as my planner; a few of you have had some questions so here I am.

I started using Evernote the week of December 23rd.  I was looking for a new planner for 2017 and I was not liking anything that I was finding.  I keep lists of all sorts of things in Evernote so it only made sense to try and find a way to use Evernote for my planner.  I did a little bit of research and found these templates for 2017.  With a little adjusting, I was able to make the weekly template work for me.

I first created a folder called Day Planner {I put the folder in my Inbox stack because I spend the most time here}.

!Inbox -- default notebook.  Anything coming into Evernote goes here to be sorted and dealt with {It is piling up today}. Ideally, this is emptied every day but for me, it is more like a few times a week.

!TO DO -- This is the notebook that holds some of those lists.  My genealogy to do list, my blog to do list and my brainstorming list live here…

Family Sampler Update

I was hoping to get more done on this this past week but another trip to the ER on Wednesday night did not leave much time for stitching.  I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low and I found out that I have a UTI.  I was really surprised about the UTI because I did not have the normal symptoms.  The antibiotic has really been helping.  I was not feeling well and just laying on the couch but then I got dizzy and fell so Jason had to come home from work and take me to the ER.  Yesterday was the first that I really spent any time stitching but I did get a lot done. 
I switched to my HAED Nature’s Mourning for this week.  So far today I have gotten a lot done.  Hopefully this week I will stay healthy and want to cross stitch.
Enjoy your week!
Happy Stitching!!
