The Joy of being Granny

Manda and Maddie got home from the hospital on Wednesday just after noon and they both had a good nap. It is so hard to sleep in the hospital and they both were very tired. This is the first of many pictures I'll be boring you with I'm sure. Manda says she is a very good baby and only cries when she wants to eat. Much different from her brothers.

Maddie 4 day old.
I finished her "Hello Kitty" pillow and was really finally happy with the outcome. The first picture is a scan of the finished stitching and the second is the pillow I made with it (Sorry about the quality of the second picture but you can get the idea of what I did).




Manda also like Pooh (and so do I) so while looking for my book of Pooh stitching I found 3 more Hello Kitty charts that I found several years ago. I don't even remember where I found them, all I remember is they were free and I thought maybe someday I would have a GD so I printed them. I see lots more Granny stitching coming up real quick.
Today I doing some what I call "Brain Dead" stitching LOL. Doing the border on the Lizzie Kate BOO Club Double Flip. Only 3 colors and since it just repeats, no constant checking of the chart. I may even start the first design tonight while watching the NASCAR race.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend with lots of good weather and stitching time.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

Maddie is a little angel. You wont bore me with the baby pictures. Glad to hear she is doing so good and the Mom too. Stitching is great and I love how you finish it into the pillow.
