I got on the HAED Website yesterday and I checked to see if Pansy was still available and sure enough it was so it is not OOP and I am so glad of that. This is a beautiful Pattern and I just dearly love the colors that she is wearing. She is a very beautiful lady...and the way this Pattern is it is just too beautiful not to stitch up. I will be ordering this pattern this next month (March). I am so anxious to get her started but I'm going have to buy material for this one and probably some threads but I want to get Daisy Offerings done first before I start another HAED Project since Daisy Offerings is a HAED Project.
HAED Projects are real easy to do...I do mine on 18 Count White Charles Craft Material - it is nothing but regular cross stitch - there is no half stitches, no quarter stitches but there is quite a bit of Confetti Stitching though which I don't mind because that is what makes the picture turn into a beautiful masterpiece. I love the HAED Patterns and I have a Wish List a mile long on their website. I don't care for the download versions of their patterns because it takes lots of Ink to get them printed out so I like what they call the Hard Copy of their Patterns. I have some of HAED Patterns already and when I will start them I don't know but I have decided that with Daisy Offerings...I will always be doing a HAED Pattern along with a easier pattern from now on until I can't stitch anymore. I am addicted to HAED Patterns. HAED is Heaven and Earth Designs. They are on the Internet.
Last night I had my dear close friends come and pick me up for Triple F which is at my church. Triple F stands for Food, Faith, & Fellowship. At that time it was nice out - it was snowing out a little bit but that was about it...when we got ready to leave from my church the sidewalk that leads out to the partially parking lot by the church's doors was like a Skating Rink. I was a nervous wreck last night til I got back home. I started to walk toward their Blazer without hanging onto anybody and I started to slide so I very slowly turned around and headed back up toward the church's doors and waited on my friends to come out so I could hang on to her for dear life. She helped me and a older lady out to their vehicle...they have a Blazer which is a 4 wheel drive. We made it out to their Blazer and got in okay. Where I live at now...you can drive clear up to the ramp and the roof is over the ramp part so there is no snow or ice that can get on the ramp unless it is blowing. Thank goodness the winds were not blowing so I got out of their Blazer and made it okay without any help up to my Apt Building doors without having to have any help. It was pretty clear - the cement ramp was.
When I started to slide on that sidewalk last night my heart went in my mouth and I started to get tears in my eyes. Last night was not very good weather wise...it was awfully slick out. If I ever fall again I'm going have to have surgery again on my right leg due to the plate and the screws in my leg and probably a few broken bones on top of that as well. That is why I don't dare slip and fall ever again and this month has been so terrible weather wise - we've had 3 Ice Storms this month already. I am so tired of these Ice Storms.
I am praying that I will be able to get out tomorrow to go to Radio Shack to get my phone card renewed - I am going to call them up first and see if I can do that over the phone and I am keeping my fingers cross that I can do that over the phone. I soon rather not get out until sometime next week when the weather is a little bit nicer out.
If I would've known that the snow was going to turn into Freezing Rain last night I would've never step out of my Apt Building but I didn't know that. My Direct TV was out yesterday morning and it is out again this morning too. I like to get up and watch the early Morning News/Weather and this morning I couln't do that.
When I got back inside of my Apt last night I was crying because it was just too close of a call for me last night when I started to slide on that sidewalk. God was with me because I did not fall even though I came real close in falling down last night.
I hope and pray that we don't have anymore Ice Storms - I am so ready for Spring.
Thanks for all of your comments.... I appreciate them very much :)
I hope that you all have a very wonderful day today...
Love & Prayers
God Bless You
