Ranchers Daughters blocks done so far

Hi everyone,

I haven't been on here in a while so thought I'd take a min and play catch up!! I  have been busy  playing catch up on my sewing over the last few weeks.

 Here is the finished quilt top for my sister in laws lap quilt now away to quilters.

I treated myself to some goodies from Country Cottages!  decided to try my hand again at cross stitch.and then saw these cute magnets I'm still waiting for the material and thread for the witch one but hopefully it will be soon.

This is my calender sew along from A crafts Delight Sewing Group from the face book site it is January It is the first cross stitch one I have done since I was a kid many many years ago!! and then it wasn't counted cross stitch!!February is a heart  design I have it  set up to start hopefully this weekend

These are my next three Forget me knot blocks from  I have one more block to applique then today the final part with  the borders and final settings was posted. It has been a wonderful mystery quilt to work on!

I also started a mystery sew along from Prairie Quilt Merchantile's on  called plenty of fish mystery quilt. step one is done and now step two to catch up on.  !!
In between this my husband re did out living room floor now we just have the windows in here to replace and this room will be refurbished.!!
While we were working on these we decided(well I decided!!) to sort the furniture and belongings in here and get rid of clutter so of course that meant cleaning the room as we went along which led to having the rest of the house spring cleaned!!   My health lately hasn't been too good had problems with internal bleeding so couldn't do much bending and lifting and stretching. so I asked a friend to come and help clean the house  so she has been here a few evenings this past week and  will be back again on saturday to hopefully help finish it off.  I have been washing and dusting what I can  and she is doing the bending low and high reaching!! working out pretty good.  Hubby and son will do the stove, ceilings ,under beds and ceiling fans for us on sunday and that hopefully will be the house done. It already looks and smells so much better. I will be glad when it is done though so I can go back to sewing and my regular routine!!   Well I think that is most of my news caught up I need to go and get a move on and start on my next book shelve in my bedroom that will take awhile to get done ! I hope you all have a great week Jennifer,
