A Quickie

Minds out of the gutters ladies and gents.....I am referring to my latest quick stitch. It is from the Heart in Hand, Mother's Wisdom Series. I am now working on the "Mind your Manners" design so that I can frame both, one for each of my girls.
I also want to welcome my three new followers!

Teresa at Willow Tree Pond , she is presently having a 1st Blogoversary Giveway so hop on over and check her out!

Heather at Stitch in Tyme , she happens to be a Lizzie Kate Lover and owner of a few different blogs!

And Denise at Riverside Stitching, she is picture heavy so very fun to follow! 
Welcome ladies and hope all have a good rest of your week! Almost TGIF!

"Mom of Two" accomplishes a goal!

We all have goals, do we not? I have many, the typical lose weight, have more patience with my children, keep the house cleaner, etc. This year I also decided I wanted to finish a part of my SAL on time. Now I didn't put it out there, maybe I should have? Anyway, I did it and during the shortest month of the year!!!  Having said that, Oakhaven's Monthly SAL appears to be an easy one. If anyone is interested you can see the Yahoo Group by clicking on the link.

Speaking of Owls, I have lost our resident in my owl box. It appears a squirrel has evicted it. After doing a little research this happens quite a lot if the owl is without young. Can you believe an owl was scared off by a squirrel??? So we evicted the pesky squirrel and covered the entrance this past week. I hope to take the cover off this week and attract another Screech Owl before they breed (March-April). Wish us luck!

February TUSAL and our Snow Day!

Well, I am a few days late with my TUSAL posting. My excuse??? Why a snow day for Central Texas! Yes, our city shut down for 1 inch of snow and how we all felt like we were in a winter wonderland. 

Our girls were in heaven. I think it was their 1st real snow play! We made snow angels, a snow-girl with our neighbors, had snow ball fights and went sledding down a steep hill at the neighborhood dog park. I know the pictures will look like nothing to our "Northern" friends but my how much fun we all had!  

As for my latest stitching project, my owl is coming along and almost done. I'll show it next time as it is in my car and I'm too cold to go out and get it! Stay warm and if you are in Texas, pray that we won't see anymore rolling blackouts during our "frigid" season!

Pass the Pumpkin Pie Please

So last night I finished my latest, Thanksgiving Line up by The Trilogy. It turned out cute but alas I'm done stitching earth tones for awhile. The colors were becoming quite drab to stitch but I'll be happy to have it come November! 

On to project #2 for the New Year, January SAL from OakHaven Designs. The owner has a Yahoo Group that I have been following, the group has close to 700 members. Maybe ya'll have seen her designs? January looks like a short and sweet piece. I'll post a picture with my TUSAL Update later in the week.

Almost forgot to show ya'll my present from Japan. It's a Hello Kitty Bag for guess what? My WIP's of course! Notice anything different about Hello Kitty? She's a Kitty Devil, do you think DH was trying to tell me something?
