Carrot Top Mossie

I was taking my bath last night and thought hmmm, wonder what a Carrot Mossie would look like. I have a very busy brain, I can't even relax in the tub! I immediately sketched a few little carrot heads, started stitching, right through Desperate Housewives, I might add, and here is the finished product!

12th place!

Well, the results are in. My Mossie came in 12th place. Better than a swift kick in the ... I suppose! Haha! Thanks for your votes, dear friends!

Apple Blossoms

Right down the street from my house is an Apple Orchard. In the spring it is spectacular when all the trees are in bloom. I stitched this Apple Tree this weekend, it was fun, but very unlikely I'll ever make another. I love making one of a kind pieces, but two of a kind, not so much fun if you know what I mean!

Happy Birthday Sean and Bob!

Sean is my oldest grandson and turned 15 on March 15. He is a cutie-patootie, really smart, is kind, and loves his Grandma! I am having a hard time with his newly aquired deep voice!

This is Bob! Sean got him for his birthday 6 years ago. Bob was just a teeny little tortoise and is growing bigger everyday. He could out live us all!

Good bye February, Hello March!

February was totally crazy and I'm afraid I neglected my blog. Hopefully I will do better in March. My parents were hospitalized a week apart, first my Dad with blood clots on his lungs and then my Mom with an intestinal obstruction. Thank God, they are both doing well now and things will get back to normal.
We also had 3 more grand kids celebrate birthdays this month! Reese, turned 6 and Tommy turned 4. Reese and Tommy are the "wild" ones. They come over and "fly" all over the place! I think they are on a constant sugar high!

And then we have Noah who turned a whopping 13, just like cousin Nathan. He just missed being a Leap Year baby and was born on the 27th in a snowstorm! He is a sweetheart with a great sense of humor! When the summer comes Noah is at my house from morning til night and he is always a joy to be around!

And then we had the Sweetheart Swirl, a formal dance at the highschool. Two of my grandkids attended this year. Mackenzie went with her boyfriend Zach. She looked gorgeous. Natalie made the whole outfit, the dress and the purse. Mackenzie is the family fashionista!

And then we have Sean, I still call him Seanie. He is quite the ladies man! He went to the Swirl with a flock of girls. He loves the girls and I think they love him too! Quite often goes to the movies with a whole harem!

So that's what has been going on at my house. I have been doing a lot of crafting and have listed some new things in my shop, but now I am getting the itch for a good old spring cleaning. It's still pretty cold and snowy in Michigan, but I think I might start cleaning out some cupboards and closets!
