We have puppies!

Bailey had her pups from 7:20pm last night until (so far) 10:00am this morning. So far their are just 4 but think there might be at least another one to go. She has had 3 girls and 1 boy. They are all sooooo cute with one big chunker in the group that looks like her daddy. I will update if there are more tonight, she did go 10hrs last night to this morning between pups. OY!

Mother's Day Flowers and more

Hi all! Hope everyone had a great weekend. It was quiet for the most part here which is always welcome. LOL Mother's Day we took my MIL out to lunch along with my BIL/SIL. We had a great luncha and lots of it, great food. The kids were in Vegas with their dad for the weekend so it was quiet here. We have been on major puppy watch but no puppies as of yet. Major nesting going on today though, keep your fingers crossed.
Well, my oldest, Brianna, brought over flowers on Mother's Day for me, very pretty red roses in a really cool vase.

I rec'd another ornament for the HO HO HO ornament exchange i am in from Shelleen. Shelleen also sent along some goodies that are wonderful! Thanks so much Shelleen!!! I love it all!

I do have a couple "finish finishes" to share. Michele had given me a bunch of her stitching finishes to "finish" for her however i would like (trusting me with her stitching). LOL Well, i chose Peace by LHN that Melinda stitched for her in the Fair & Square exchange awhile ago. I made it into a pinkeep ornament for MIchele. I really like how it turned out myself. Also, i went through my F&S's and found a perfect one to make a pincushion out of. This is from Lynda A in one of my favorite colors, purple. I think i am going to add a bead to the middle of it though, we'll see. I used poly pellets to fill it.

I have an exchange that is en route so can't show that one as of yet. And that is about all for now.

Is it May already?

The time is sure flying by. HS graduation is coming up on May 22 for Caitie (she graduated in Dec but walking with her class). Then on to ASU in August for her. It's hot out here been in the 103's and just getting hotter. yuck

Well, i have a couple tiny finishes to share, not much really. I have been digging in my WIP basket and just pulling things out to finish. Well, i pulled out Salem Witch by Primitive Needle, stitched on silkweaver's solo using DMC. I think she turned out pretty cute, for a witch. I also finished up a small reindeer ornament from HIH (the pic isn't really good but you at least get the idea).

When the girls were here in April for our GCGC get together we had a little Floss Tag class. A couple of us finished ours up at the cabin and i took Michele's and Sharon's home to finish up for them. Well, i finally got Michele's done (Sharon's is next). Michele stitched "Easter" by LK a limited edition kit this year, over 1. It turned out really cute.

It is my turn to be receiving ornaments for our HO HO HO Ornament Exchange group. I rec'd Nicole's last week or so, just hadn't gotten around to taking pics. So here is the ornament Nicole stitched for me, Pear Tree by LHN on 40ct. It is gorgeous, i love it. Here is also a pic of the goodies she included (note, i already started Free BIrd by Plum Street Samplers on the 40ct fabric she included).

Well, we are waiting for our dog Bailey to have her puppies here anyday now. She was due yesterday the 7th. So we are just sitting back waiting for the little pups to come. Here is a pic of Bailey the other day. She is so miserable and uncomfortable and has been nesting quite a bit so hopefully this weekend. They are kicking like crazy in there, too cool.
