Happy Birthday Maddie

I can't believe it's been a year since I was sitting on pins and needles waiting for the birth of my only grand daughter. Maddie was a year old on the 13th and now has 9 teeth, is taking 6or 7 steps at a time and using her sippy cup instead of the bottle. How fast they grow. I don't have pictures from the Birthday party yet (DD has to get a new modem for the internet) but will share them as soon as I get them. This picture is from Easter and she looks a bit confused by that round thing her mama calls a plactic egg, what good is it if you can't eat it.

Finishes....

Instead of waiting til the last minute to do the stitching done for my little tree I got a head start on May.


"46 Birdhouses" One Nighters by Jeanette Crews Designs
Stitched on White or Brown Perforated Paper with DMC
These were a fun, fast stitch (less than 1 day each). They are really small, less than 2"x2" each (click on picture to see details). There are several more that I want to do but they will have to wait for this.......
New Start....


"Women who behave...." by Sue Hillis
This will be Manda's Mother's Day present. While she was a good girl who never gave us a bit of trouble she really did behave LOL. As her high school principal said to me "She marched to a different drummer", I told him she marched to a Different band. For example she decided she wanted to go to the Prom but didn't want to be tied down to a date, so she and 3 of her friends all went together which wasn't too strange until I got a peek under her beautiful long dress and instead of the shoes I got her to match the dress she had on combat boots LOL. This design fits her to a "T".
This is really a bad time of the year for me. I get very sad and somewhat depressed so I may go MIA for a while. To keep my mind busy I'm going to stitch, reorganize my stash and move the living room around. Don't worry about me, I'll be fine just a little quiet for a while.
Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching

Hard to believe Maddie's a year old already, it really does go so fast. I like the little birdhouses that you're stitching and look forward to seeing them up.

Take care of yourself Rene!

Those birdhouses are adorable, and I love the piece you've started for your daughter - she sounds nifty.

I feel for you in your blues - I get mine in March, so I can honestly say I understand.

Those birdhouses are great! What a wonderful variety.

We'll miss you while you do your internal rearranging ... and be here with open arms when you return.

I am sorry but there is no way sweet Maddie is 1. It was just 2 weeks ago she was born. I am sure about it!
The birdhouses are so cute! And I really almost bought that Sue Hillis design!

Can't believe Maddie is already one year old. Time is sure flying by too fast for me with Connor too.
