About Me

My photo
I love anything creative...I am a busy mom of three (+4 dogs, 1 bird, 1 bunny, and 1 sweet husband) who sometimes wishes I had more time/energy/talent to devote to just being creative!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Barb had asked when I was going to post a photo of new baby Calvin. I thought this one appropriate for the season with the clovers behind him (and he is half Irish after all). We have a huge clump of them growing by our front porch. Calvin looks a little concerned over being in that basket though!

This is where I ended up on BC Quaker star. I ran out of WDW Navy Blue. Thankfully there is a few months before this one goes on display, so I have time to order more and finish this one up. I ended up not taking out the border on the left tip to accommodate the red motif. I figure who will know but me that there is a mistake there in my stitching. *If you ever come to visit and see this one in person please be kind and just don't mention it :)

Here is my new start for the week, another Bent Creek, "Baby Row". I hate when you go to buy the colors on the chart and they completely don't look like the picture on the front! The large letters on this are supposed to be WDW "Galvanized" which is a light grey, but the chart photo looked like a soft brown so I changed mine to use WDW "Mocha". I am much happier with my decision. This will be a birth sampler for little Calvin. When it's done I want to do a post with each of the samplers I have made for my three little ones. Hope everyone has a great St. Patrick's day, and avoids any pinches (don't forget your green tomorrow!)

What I am Watching: Dexter (just started it on Netflix and love it so far), The Soloist, Red, Role Models

Miles Ran this Year: 75.98 miles (I was proud of myself last night- I really really didn't want to go run, in fact I made it out the door walked 3 minutes and came right home, my dog was so not impressed! But I managed to get my laziness onto the treadmill and ran 20 minutes on that instead. A small victory but at least it was something!)

Congrats on your little boy! What a precious photo of him in a basket - so tiny. I too have changed colors to look more like the photo rather than what was listed. Beautiful stitching. love Annette

He is so cute. That picture is perfect. Congratulations!! Really, you can't tell that there is a 'mess up' on the top of the star. I wouldn't worry about it either. Love your new start. I can't wait to see the finished product.
