A Few Updates and Jazmine is One!!!

I think I will call this block finished.....well, after looking at the pic I now know it is not yet finished....I need to add some bling to the cretan stitch.....that won't take long and then I will call it finished....just two more to go.....yay! Maybe a hat? hmmmm......

 The next pics are of some crocheted roses I have made recently....the first one will eventually find its way onto a crazy quilt block......the two green ones are for a shrug that I am almost finished with.....
 A Tilda snow lady that I made for a swap.......I enlarged the pattern as the original was way to small in my opinion...this one sits nicely and is about 8 1/2" inches tall......
 This is a shabby tote that was also made for a swap....it turned out nicely and I hated to see it go.....the pic is not really clear but the rosette is all shabby with thread pulls and such....I may make a pin like this soon....
Well I have had company since Friday as we celebrated Jazmine's first birthday! She has been such a blessing to our family....She also started walking on Friday night while her mom and I were talking....she was so funny and we laughed lots.....We also had our Thanksgiving with family last week with more company......this weekend will be Thanksgiving at my daughters home since we have already celebrated with my mom and dad plus the rest of the family.....can you say tired especially after not feeling well....anyhow, below is a couple of pics of Jazmine...such a sweet girl
 Jaz with Frostie (mom) checking out her pink elephant  that we gave her for her birthday......
 She absolutely loved the elephant and was not happy to move on to the other gifts! We all thought that was funny....the elephant is actually a chair for her to sit in.
Last but certainly not least is a couple of pics of my sweet boys......life would be so dull and boring without them running around......Riddick of course is my big sweet boy as I call him as he is the oldest....he stole my heart when he was a puppy and chose me as the one to lavish all his love on.....
 And this is Whizzer who came into our family in February of this year.....I actually helped to birth this big boy as his mom was having a hard time.....he was and still is the biggest of the litter.....he is also a very sweet boy....thus my little sweet boy! They both bring much joy to my life.....
Hope you have enjoyed my little update.....I will go ahead and wish all my blogging friends a Happy and safe Thanksgiving as I will be busy for the rest of the week and weekend with family......see you Monday!
Until next time,
Wendy

Scissor Keep Swap

My scissor keep swap arrived from Simone all the way from down under.....thank you so much Simone, I love it! Every item you sent is just wonderful.....I will be using this set for my tatting items as I am just learning and this will be a great item to keep it all in....the fabric I am going to use in my yoyo quilt that I am making, thank you I just love it!....Look at this awesome basket that she sent out to me.......
 And the inside is for the scissor keep and a needle book that she made.....the inside of this sewing basket has pockets all the way around....I have already put my tatting shuttle inside along with a roll of thread.... hopefully I will learn to tat soon and be able to fill the basket with tatting that I can use in my crazy quilting...notice the cool lolly fabric! I am going to use that to make yoyos with for my king size quilt......
 Thank you again Simone, I love it!
Until next time,
Wendy

A Few Updates.....

Just a few updates.....I have been working on my winter theme blocks over the weekend.....here is a progress shot of the block I am currently working on....I need to make him a hat, then move on to more beading and layering the stitches for this block.....then I will only have two more to go.....slowly but surely coming together.....
 It has been a rainy dreary day here today.....but we did see a rainbow right before dark....not the best pic but it was still raining....
I also added a new recipe on my recipe blog for chicken and dumplings....
Until next time,
Wendy
