Hello Ladies...



I want to start out with AWESOME NEWS ... we found out that all is very well with the grandbaby... and that it is gonna be a .... drumroll please.... G I R L !!!!! Megz says that the name is going to be... Abigail Lynn Francis. She is ADORABLE already!!!! We have ultrasound pics galore... and in one of them... she is shaped like a little bunny... it is so cute. Mez is just as cute as she prepares for her... we went out the night after the ultrasound and HAD giggle to buy a few things for her... She is gonna be sooooooooooo spoiled... it is NOT going to be funny!!! This is Megz blog... and it has one of the ultrasound pics on it there... She has Megz little nose... I can NOT wait to see our precious Abbs...
On to stitchy stuff...

A FINISH: Last weekend I finished this was one of my UFO's i had in my basket... I started it last year... and just put it up... I have a goal to finish 4 UFO's this year... This is UFO #1. Megz is here with me while I am typing... she just giggled... and said "4 UFO's... snicker... that is Funny! " SmartARRRRSSS. She made comment that several of the 4 would be ornaments... HEY... Ornaments count! Giggle...

Anyway... This is a chart by Sheepish Designs... Betsy 108th Expemplary. I stitched it with the DMC flosses that it calls for. On the sheep... I switched out some of the colors and did a LOOP stitch to make the sheep look fluffy!!! I love it! I am so glad that I finished it... I hope to get out this weekend to find the PERFECT frame.



The first one is Hallow Eden by Plum Street samplers.. I have bought the Crescent colors it calls for to stitch it with. I have a WDW fabric to stitch it on! I am excited about starting this one!

Lizzie and Kate

Halloween Rules...

first 3 releases... I am stitching this on a 25 count fabric over 2 threads to be able to make a large banner style hanging... I have the DMC flosses gathered for this so far.



This first group was bought at Keepsakes in Cincinnati... This was a road trip for my best friend ... my daughter and myself. We always have a ton of fun going to Barbara's shop! I fell in love with the model she had stitched... and had to but everything for this progect... now to start it!! Just 10 stitches... and it is started! LOL!

First pic... Look at my cute little stork scissors... My daughter found them... and we all fell in love with them ... so 3 pair goes in the bag.... They are SHARP though... wow! they hurt when they poke you! This is a picture of all that I bought... Look at the pre-made needlebook and the little pin cushion ... TOO CUTE!!!!

I also bought some fabric for my hoot chart... How fun!!!

The Owl Chart was NOT bought in this trip though... I just took it to get the fabric for it!

This is the stash that I bought from Terrie at The
Stitch Store... Well... I will keep you all informed on my progress on each of these.

Keep Crossing those stitches!

gosh, after all of the drama in the previous posts about your health and your problems with your daughter, can you give us some idea of what has been happening? Is she still with the father of the baby and are you still suffering from the health problems?

We are still struggling a lot with a lot of things... I am calmer now... she is back home she was only gone for about 3 weeks and became so ill with the flu she had to return. She is at this point not with the dad... and is still sad that he can not be a good person the person that she needs him to be. We will see what God has planned for us next. It is almost time for Abigail to arrive so we are trying to focus our attention on that! Thank you for your concern!
