Oh, Happy Day

Who does not love little Puppy teeth! After spending much to much time chasing her around the LR this morning I let her have one of the things she loves and is not allowed....a scissor fob with the scissors attached. It is a mystery why they always want what they should not have.....right now she is looking at me from her Pile with green thread hanging out of her mouth.....Where she finds it is her secret......I am sure her first surgery will be to remove the wad of DMC from her lower intestine......She is a joy and I am happy for my decision every day!

The pumpkin is a revision (what a surprise) of an automatic I receive from a Wool Applique company......I changed it to suit myself and I love the way it came out! I have not done this before so it was fun to design and then stitch. I really should have married a rich man so that I could do this every day! At one point I thought about gifting it but nahhh.....I am going to keep it.

I had a great surprise this week and it was another friend, Gillie, was passing through Chicago and stayed a night.....we did not have as much time as I would have liked but it was wonderful to see her. These women in my life are such a gift.

My EGA had a ribbon class last Saturday that was taught by one of the members and she did a first rate job.....I now consider myself a Ribbon Embroidered! I made two little things when I got home and will photo them soon for you to see.....what a fun and quick stitch....

If we do not meet again before the Holiday, Happy Thanksgiving to you all.................. Be Thankful......

Horribly Guilty!!!


As with most of things, Coco has taken far more of my time than I expected....not a bad thing but a task, none the less.....

Then I had to travel to Pennsylvania for the World Series and sat next to the rudest woman on the plane who coughed the entire journey.....I came back with a sinus infection that is just clearing.....the older we get the longer these things take to go away.

Have done little stitching.....I seem to jump from idea to idea wanting to try everything.

Just wanted to say hello and that I will put up pics of Coco and some WIP's before the end of the week!
