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:-)

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!!

Hopefully this will clear up any questions you may have.





How I use Evernote for my genealogy.

I use Evernote to store everything including my genealogy research.
You want to use Evernote in a way that makes sense to you.  Tags, notebooks, no tags or no notebooks; do whatever works the best for you.
Notebooks (the blue box)
Notebooks are sorted alphabetically so if there are notebooks you want at the top of your list you can use ! or @ or ~ in front of your notebook title.  In my image, for example, I have my INBOX notebook with an ! in front to keep this notebook at the top of the list.  I use a ~ to keep my GENEALOGY notebook stacks together.  I have an ARCHIVE notebook and in front of that I put an x to keep it at the bottom of …
