Our Puppy

Those of you familiar with my mom's blog have of course learned that we have a couple of golden retreiver pups. They are brother and sister and my parents have Gracie and we have Luke. Both of their very favorite thing in the world is to be around each other. This picture was taken on what was a great day for Luke. He is relaxing in the shade in my parents' back yard after an exhausting morning of tumbling around with Gracie. For him, life just doesn't get much better :)

Just Cross Stitch Ornament

Straight from the pages of the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Preview Issue, here is a picture of my ornament, Season of Love. My mom and I had fun coordinating our ornaments with a gingerbread theme for this issue. I hope you enjoy them!

My Little Nephew

Here is little Andrew! What a cutie he is, don't you think? I love getting to hold babies - they just feel so good in your arms. My kids are in love with him too. Sean has always liked babies, and even Juliet (who has never liked babies!) adores him. They just love how soft and tiny he is. And they just laugh when I tell them how I was never able to see them when they were this small because they were such big babies! Juliet was 9.1 pounds and Sean was 9.8 pounds. So we're all just enjoying this little guy right now :)

New Stuff!

So here are the complete pictures of the new designs, Summer at the Shore and Mary Mary Quite Contrary. I'm particularly in love with Summer at the Shore because I wish that I could really spend my whole summer there! Just put me at the beach and I'm happy! I think that Mary Mary is a nice addition to the Nursery Rhyme Collection as well. She will be joined by Little Miss Muffet and Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater in the next couple of months to complete that series. All the details about the new designs are available on my website.

You can also see a new ornament that I've designed called Season of Love in the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Preview Issue. It has a gingerbread theme that compliments my mom's ornament that is in the issue as well.

And finally, I would like to thank all of you who have so warmly welcomed me into blogland and left such nice comments on my posts. I really like hearing from you and hope you continue to check in here on my blog!

Recital Time!

So, my very busy week with Juliet's dance recital is over, and I have to admit I'm a little sad. I loved watching her perform but knowing it was the last time she would do those dances was a little bittersweet. Before too long though, they'll be working on dances for next year, and I can't wait to see what she'll do next!

She of course had a great time with her friends. You can always count on a bunch of 8 year old girls for lots of excitement and drama!

Busy Week!

It has been such a busy week! As many of you know who follow my mom's blog, my nephew Andrew was born yesterday. He is such a cute little baby. I got to see him and hold him yesterday and can't wait till I get to again!

Also, my daughter Juliet has her summer dance recital this weekend, so we will be very busy down at the theater the rest of this week. It's lots of fun but also very tiring!

And finally, I have a little snippet of Mary Mary Quite Contrary for you to see. I think she's so cute standing in her little garden.

My New Blog

Hello everyone. . . . I have finally started a blog! My first post is a preview of an upcoming design called Summer at the Shore. I love all things beachy and blue, don't you?

I also have another nursery rhyme coming out at the same time. Mary Mary Quite Contrary is the fourth design in my collection. I'll post a photo preview of that too in a day or so.

Thanks for stopping by!
