Blessed Sunday all!

Jack is nearly done with the cross stitch on his kitty then it is on to the backstitching. Is there anyone out there who actually likes a mile of backstitching? Not me or Jack.

Finally!!!!! I finished my wrap! It has been more off working on it than on since April. I mean with cross stitching and home repairs it has taken the backseat a lot. At least I will have it for the chilly fall mornings sitting out with the Bugger.
006
And speaking of the Bugger, isn’t this a cute picture? She is snuggling with a teddy bear she found abandoned in a ditch on one of our walks. She promptly picked it up and brought him home. How could I take it away from her? So after a bath he looks good as new and she loves him!

I finally feel like I am getting somewhere on this chunk of the moon. I did have a nice long visit from the frog though. But I soon sent him packing. The areas next to the halo missing floss will have beads and metallic floss. I still haven’t gotten the missing thread so I can work on Rainbow Bridge but I will soon. I am kinda on a role with this anyway and determined to finish this area!

Jack has been up to doing some cross stitch on his project. I really do think it will be very pretty when done. We searched all over Wichita when we were living there to find this for him as it had been discontinued.

Now this is the best picture! Jack and I shop at Wal Mart for groceries even though we have a couple stores here in town it is worth the short drive to save money but we do buy some items here. In the summer time we fold down the backs of the car seats and perishables are placed up close to stay cool. Well Miss Katie must inspect each and every bag to see what is in them. Jack got lucky and caught this darling picture of her. What a mess she is and we do so love her.

Katie was trying so hard to tuck herself under her blankie in the den. She wanted to keep her Dad company but only while napping. Believe me that look means ” For ever more would SOMEONE cover me up!”

Even though I am really close to finishing my Ruth piece, I need a break from it so I am working on this one again as well as one other. I can not show you that one as it is a present for a friend. Don’t want her to see it!

We also went to the little town of Lamar not far from us. My dad lived there the last few years of his life. It is also the birthplace of Harry Truman. Pretty cool isn’t it? I think so! LOL! Here is the theater downtown.
003
And here is the courthouse. not a very good picture. Sorry!
004
The next two are tributes to Mr. Truman at his birthplace.

This is the back of the home. Are you surprised at how small and modest it is?

Here is the well and straight ahead is the outhouse.

And last here is the front of the house. Hope you enjoyed the brief tour. Next time we will go inside and it is sure a treat.

Here is our model showing off her sleek new warmie. We got it for her while we were in Springfield. Katie heard denim was out of fashion and that faux fur was in! LOL!

And here is our Miss Bug after Jack wrapped her up like a puppy burrito!  She didn’t mind one bit.  Trying awful hard to look cute as well.  I think she is pulling that one off just fine!

We are home and had a great time! It was just what we needed.  We visited our friends at their pharmacy.  Here is George the owner laughing at Katie.  She was eating a doggie cookie with her butt in the air.

Here is George and Sue’s daughter Jennifer. She and Katie are best buddies.

A little quality time with Sue. Feels good!  Katie always barks and stands on her hind legs looking out the drive up window everytime someone arrives.  She acts like she owns the place.  The owners doxies used to be there all the time until an inspector forced them to leave them at home.  What a rip off!

This is our very nice room! It was wonderful and so was everyone who worked there including the owners who are good Christian people. You are checked on a couple times a day to make sure you have all you need and all is well. They have plenty of time to talk to you and lots of smiles as well. It was more like staying with family. Katie even got a special bag filled with goodies and they have a nice grassy area to walk your dog with poo bags provided!

Now for some of the fabrics Jack has been buying me and some patterns to. I am down to 4 outfits and of those four two are in tough shape, one is not the proper size and the other is just getting very old and worn out.  These Jack bought for me at Ehlers here in town.

These are reproductions of 1800’s fabrics I bought at a place called FM Store in Springfield. I really enjoy all the fabrics. The dark blue with wheat is a reproduction of a fabric produced in 1860. The other was produced from 1830 to 1870.

The blue calico I got here at Ehlers and the other I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby.

These are the patterns I bought. I got them from Kathy at Common Sense Patterns Nice looking pull on style dresses easy enough for me to do. She prints them on really good, heavy paper as well and the instructions are easy to understand. I have been sewing for a number of years but I am self taught and never learned to do complicated patterns. I prefer simple styling anyway and easy to put together.

Lastly, here are Craig and Becky Chandler and their dogs. They not only own the place they work their too. Unlike many motel owners and they are such warm, loving and caring people. They are such a joy to talk with as well and the dogs are adorable. Katie and Buddy were flirting. Funny!

So that is most of our trip.  I hope you enjoyed everything.  God bless!
