I have begun stitching in 1978. For the last 10 years, my stitching has been with "smalls". I love to use beads and ribbons and always looking for new ways for finishing. My email addresses is firstname.lastname@example.org.

We spent last night in the Emergency room from 11:45 pm to 4:00 am in the morning. My little boy had severe coughing. He was vomiting. I was so scared. The cough was so bad that I thought he would stop breathing. He has been sick on and off for 3 weeks since October. He does has some Asthma issue when he has a cold. In the Hospital, we found out he had Croup
. It is a upper respiratory viral infection that could be deadly for children under 5 years old. The hospital has been having quite a few of this type of emergency in the last few days. The cough is like a "barking" cough and the vomiting part was a real concern for me. They gave him a big "breathing treatment", took some x rays and a shot of steroid. He was a great boy the whole time. When we got home, he told us he was very hungry and tired. We went to bed around 5 am and he got up around 9:30 am. He is doing very well today. They did not give us any medication. He is eating and wants to go to the park and play tennis. Here is a picture of him today. He insisted he needed a pic taken since mommy is taking pictures of her stitching.
He looks pale in the picture but he is in good spirit. When a child is healthy, it is a blessing more than anything I can ask for. Here is his picture on Halloween day as Bob the Builder:
I went to the Houston Quilt show last Saturday. I only stayed for 3 hours because my husband was dropping us off. I went with a friend that knows how to sew and would love to learn more on Quilting. I don't quilt or sew. This was my first time there and I am definitely going there again next year for a whole day. They had more than 200 booths. Many of the booths did not want to have their pictures taken so I only took a few to share. There were 3 stitching booths, Dinky Dyes, Stoney Creek and Silver needle. I am very impressed with the Silver needle displays:
Dinky Dyes, Jo Fisher and her booth. I just love the Twisted oak honor thy needle pyramid.
Stoney Creek, marilyn was there and she looked so tired. Her booth was very busy. The mitten ornaments were so pretty:
Here were some random pictures of the show, I love the 2 halloween stitching designs; they were lot of sparkles there that the camera did not capture. There were tons of Fat Quarter and quilting fabric, many jewlry/beads, lot of trims, crystal projects and just lots to see. It is a show that you don't want to miss:
Here were what I bought at the Quilt show. I have limited budget and I can easy spending $1,000 there, but I did not, quite a few fabric, some dinky dyes threads, 2 packages of curve needles and some buttons:
I have received some stitching gifts from Frieda for my birthday( there is a thread winder in one of the heart boxes too) and Susan NJ sent me this JN exclusive from the cross stitch Festival at Hershey. Thank you so much:
Have a great week and thank you so much for your comments. I will try to catch up with some sleep in the next few days. Please keep my little boy in your prayers.
