Maybe the 3rd Time is the Charm!

Well they say that’s true? I tried blogging a few weeks ago and wasn’t able to do anything as I was getting timed out?! Come to find out my router was not recognizing my password, so after a phone call to the help desk, the young man walked me through a reboot and a reset. Just like new! But then I didn’t have time to blog as I was headed out of town in a few days.

So now I thought I would give it a shot and this format I use, always had an automatic save…well not tonight! I was trying a new way with loading pictures and well need I say more? It all disappeared! So I am hoping that the 3rd time is really the charm!

Last time I left you, we were talking New Years resolutions…well I was anyway! I have finished 2 strawberries and 2 ornaments so far. I am working away on my piece that Tony Minieri designed for us on our stitching trip to France last year.

You might notice that I am being properly supurr~vised by AlleyCat. She really is very good and just sleeps on my lap, doesn’t bother my threads, but just don’t move! I am working on this quadrant with the hat which was our “Souvenir de France” of the hat factory that we went to outside of Toulouse, France.

This is the entire piece. I would love to finish this before we go back to the south of France at the end of May.

My other resolution was hoping that my orchids would rebloom and they have sure been doing that! I can really take no credit for that and will just thank Mother Nature.

Speaking of Mother Nature, take a look at our super bloom!

Just magnificent isn’t it? That’s thanks to all the rain we had!

AlleyCat send her best meows to you!

About Vicky

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?

  1. Vicky, I got a post with some narrative, but it quickly went away, replaced by a photo of AlleyCat, sending her best meows. It’s good to see her, and I hope you’re doing well!

    • I don’t follow you…it’s all good on my phone, my iPad and my laptop. Except at work the first pictures are sideways. I need to figure that out! Thanks for checking in.

      • Hi Vicky, maybe it’s my feed, since I still don’t see your Narrative! I’m going to unsubscribe and resubscribe and see if that works.

  2. Please meow a big Welcome Back to Alley Cat! And thank you for posting those amazing photos of hills bursting with spring flowers – just begging to be turned into needlepoint,

  3. Your orchids look AMAZING! You and my mom are the only people I’ve ever known who can get theirs to rebloom so I’ll tell mom she’s in good company. Your kitty is just too silly Xxoo

  4. Welcome back.
    Thanks for the post and the beautiful photos.
    I cannot believe you can get orchids to rebloom. I just have 4 leafy green plants. Do you fertilize them?
