I'm a mess...

Hello my sweet friends....I hope your week has started out on a high note.  Mine started out at 6:00 am this morning with a trip over to watch Little John while Mommy went for lab testing.  I really don't remember driving there because I think I was still asleep.  Wow! 6 am is early!!!

I  can't say enough about all the wonderful comments I received.  I'm pretty sure it's this depression that I've been in that has my head going in circles.  I was dismayed to hear that some of you also have gotten nasty emails for no reason whatsoever.  People can be so cruel sometimes.  I'm going to take everyone's advice and just ignore these awful people and get on with my life.  I worry too much about what other people think and I always have.  I'm not what you would call a very secure person. Okay enough about that but I do want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for all the help that has been shown me.  I love each and every one of you.

I must tell you about my saturday evening.  I was sitting here minding my own business when Peyton called and asked if I wanted to meet them at the mall.  Well I had nothing better to do (well except stitching) so I said yes.  We were in JC Penney's when Little John decided to start acting up.  Daddy went to him and asked if he needed time out in a corner.  Now you must remember that Little John is only 1 1/2 years old but he knew what that meant.  John got him out of his stroller and Little John walked over to this corner and just stood there.


Well the cashiers around us just couldn't get over this so one went into the back room and came out with a cookie for him.  John put him back in the stroller and he was good as gold for the rest of the evening.  He is such a good boy (most of the time) and he's so smart to realize what "time out" means.  He only had to stand there for about a minute but it was enough to settle him down.

Well I've started another shawl out of a cotton yarn that starts out cream and ends up the color of coffee with cream in it.

I'm loving working with these gradient yarns and have several on order.  Can't wait to receive them.  I haven't done much cross stitch lately but I did start a small pattern.  It's called "Growing Love" from Threadwork Primitives and it's turning out very cute.  I felt like making another needle case and this one is a little different with stitching on top and bottom.

I hope all of you have a fantastic week and get to enjoy the beginning of another glorious summer.

Blessed Be, Barbara

Oh that little sweetheart in the corner tugs at my heart! I feel so bad when they are upset or unhappy. And how sweet is he to go to the corner! I must have missed a post about the emails, but take a quick look at Facebook and you will see how brutal and nasty people are becoming.

Awe! He is so sweet!
I was so sad to read that you had gotten nasty comments. They win if you go away, so keep blessing us with your sewing and stories about your sweet grand baby!

I am so pleased to see a post from you my far away friend, I was worried we would lose you from blogland, I do hope you are feeling a little better now, it seems like an awful long road when you are travelling it. Oh bless Little John he is such a cutie. The shawl is wonderful and I look forward to seeing the stitching maybe next time. Take care and hugs coming your way.
