Not much new

Have been so busy working on my house and getting through Thanksgiving haven't posted to my blog in a while. Haven't sewed much. Have worked on a little Christmas tree skirt have had for a few years. Got it off a moving job where a lady gave us stuff that was left over in her house along with a bunch of other craft supplies. It is a muted pink and gold and I have been embroidering metallic gold around the gold and pink metallic around the pink. Then have added the acrylic flower beads I like so well to all the flowers on half of it so far, plus beads to all the berries. I have a pink Christmas tree I plan to use it under. Will take pics soon whether I finish it or not.

We got a lot of snow for us Thanksgiving day and a day later. Was really beautiful and enjoyed every minute of it. The kids sure had a good time having snow ball fights and there were snowmen all over town. Everyone took advantage of the rare snow that was enough snow to do something in.

Oh, that sounds lovely. I look forward to seeing a picture of it. Is this to be ready for this Christmas? Cleaning up a UFO?

A Little About Me

Hi and Welcome! I am 50 years old, married with 2 girls Andrea and Crystal, and 3 grandchildren. A girl, Jesi who is 13 that we are raising and a boy, Christian, who is 6 and, lives with Mom. Andrew James or Peanut is 6months old and brother to Jesi. We live in a house built in 1897 that is not in the best of shape but we are working on it and we love it. It is a 2 story colonial style with big columns and a big wrap around front porch. We also have 6 cats, of which only part of are allowed in the house, and 5 dogs. A Momma dog and 4 puppies. She had 9, we gave one away, then they all came down with parvo. I lost 4 but was able to save 4. A heartrending experience but was just glad to be able to save any. No help from the vet as they want so much money but found some homeopathic remedies that actually worked. I also have a 7 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that is my baby. She goes everywhere with me, sleeps under the covers with me, and is just the cutest thing ever.
