Well, hello there February.

Happy February! Let me make myself feel better by showing you my current project progress on Oh the Miles, by Goodflorastitchwort. I am loving this project by the way.

I say "make myself feel better" because about 30 minutes ago, I attempted to sit and stitch, and sat down with a half frozen Diet Coke I brought inside from my car. Horrible idea. I barely twisted the cap AT ALL, and it spewed everywhere, including my beautiful new start!!!!  UGH! I took it off the snaps and used seltzer water on it. It's out drying on the dining room table, so I hope all will be well in the morning.

Tomorrow will be two years since we lost our Jim. He is so missed. It's been a travesty that the past two years has been taken up with so much family nonsense and drama and outrageous behavior. It has prevented those of us closest to him from grieving as needed, and caused so much trouble. This year, I intend to try and honor him, and what he meant to us. He wanted certain things for us, and he encouraged me in everything I ever wanted to do. So, this year, I will try again to make him proud by finishing the things I started, continue with goals I plan, and just be happy with the simple things.

My mom, Jim and my son, J.R. at Ocean City MD 1998

Hope you all are staying warm wherever you are and enjoy the company of your loved ones and all your sweet stitching projects. Until next time,


  1. Oh No!
    I hope it will be ok.
    It looks like an interesting project.
    Enjoy your good memories of Jim.

    1. It's still a bit stained, so I'm starting another! Thank you Marilyn!

  2. Sorry about the coke accident and hope the seltzer water has helped remove any stains from it! I think your Jim would be proud and pleased to know that you are going honor him by living your best in 2019. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thank you so much Robin! The seltzer did help, but I'm so particular, and the stain didn't come all the way out, so I'm starting another one!


Thank you so much! I appreciate all stitchy comments!
