Busy times are fun times

Well life is getting more busy all the time. My piano students have started up their lessons again. I had a friend come out to visit and we did alot of things with embroidery (she couldn't be left out of the embroidery field when she saw how much fun I was having) so I was busy showing her tips and fun things to do. I learned how to do a project on crosstitch fabric and boy was I impressed at how well it turned out. I am going to finish my Halloween projects and get them off in the mail this week. So the pictures for that I hope to have up on the blog before Friday. I have been doing my favorite projects too. So here are a couple of pictures for you to see and I will get the others on the blog soon.

Summer is over!

Summer is over and boy have I had a great summer. I was lucky enough to go and visit my daughters and their families. I have some pretty great kids all 5 of them. I was lucky enough to have a new grandaughter born in June... 10 pounds 3 oz. She is a big girl, healthy, happy and beautiful. I start teaching piano again next week and I have been doing some embroidery work too. This week our oldest grandson is spending the week with us... I have received hugs and kisses what a big treat. Since he is a big guy now, 6'2" and handsome to boot. I think I like having them come and spend time with me like this. Maybe next summer the next in age will get to come for a week. They grow so fast and then they are gone starting their own life... nope I am not going to get maudlin I am happy to have the time with each one of my children and grandchildren I am blessed truly blessed.

Busy days and nights

Well, I am going to be busy for the next several weeks. So as I find a moment or two I will try to add the things that are finished. If I can't do them that fast, I will be posting lots and lots later. I will just have to catch you up on everything then. Have fun and be safe and enjoy your summer, just don't forget to check back in by July. I know I will have things to show you by then.

Newest baby set

I know you have been waiting for the newest set for baby, but the newest one is much the same as one of the others. Lady bugs are still popular.

not embroidery

This isn't an embroidery project, but it turned out so cute I just had to put it on line to show off. It's even cuter on the sweet little girl it was made for.

I made this burprag set (blanket and burprags) and the set is on it's way to its proud family. Baby will be here before too much longer.
The other picture is our flower bed, as you can see the sun has come out alittle and Papa is taking advantage of the sun and the helpers to clean up the flower beds. I am not allowed in the flower beds or the gardens (okay, so I did make a few mistakes and took out things I thought were weeds, let us forgive and forget), so I take pictures and watch the grandchildren and keep the water and soda's coming.

I have been having a great time.

Well, I have been having a great time doing Embroidery. I co-designed a picture with the Author of the book "Hallowed Moon" ... We designed the picture and put it on a bag, and a denim jacket. I will at least take a picture of the design and put it on the site.

I finished a logo for a salon and spa in our neighborhood and embroidered some robes for the spa.

I am working on several sets of burprags and receiving blankets (always it seems I am designing several sets of those), I still think that they are my favorite thing to do. I just love babies.

I know I need to get the pictures up and show you them. That is on the list of things to do this week. I hope to have them on the site no later than Thursday of this week. Hope all of you Mom's had a great Mother's Day. I know that I did.

Hearts and more hearts

If you enlarge the picture you can see the several different layers of hearts in white and then the lavender hearts on the outside. For a baby that is very loved!

If I only had more time!

Well March is half over and I am still sewing and embroidering projects. This last week a friend of ours had a baby shower. I had made her a set of burprags and receiving blanket (the lady bugs with the white edge) and my daughter (who likes Amber too) decided she wanted to make some too. So I did the sewing (she only did part of the sewing that is too stressful)and she crocheted around them. I was so impressed that she did them (she did them very well too), she made two sets for Amber and 2 sets for her sister, Plus she wanted to tie two baby quilts so we did (again I did the sewing she did the tieing). Then, I wasn't sewing fast enough so she made two baby blankets (crocheted we know an easy quick pattern) for on the carseat.

Well, I am getting into the groove now so I am making some very simple burprags (spit happens, little princess, happy baby) no crocheted edges, and a small receiving blanket for each one. These are for the Headstart program in our community. Our women's organization (Relief Society) makes things for different groups off and on all year long. They are making flannel boards with animals, magnetic boards with shapes and numbers, little books for counting and lots of other things too. Someone in our church noticed that I had been playing the piano in the Children's organization (Primary) for several years now (over 4 this time) so they moved me to the Relief Society and decided I needed to be the 2nd coun. over Enrichment meeting. So, I am now going to be making alot more things- which is good, I have decided keeping very busy makes me happy, keeps me young, and keeps me out of trouble. Keep watching, I will add some new pictures soon. Vickie :)
