Change of pace... a little cross stitching!
Good morning all! Well my honey is doing a side job and I am left to my own devices... you would think I would be crafting up a storm but with us trying to sell our house I just can't make much of a mess... and my craft table is neatly filled with Christmas cards I just don't have the motivation to finish until I can do it with my kids! We had fun working on them together... now doing them alone is boring! So.... I pulled out some overdue cross stitching I am working on for my bff's grand daughter!
I will use my own font for the name and birth date... like I did in the wedding announcement for my son and his wife earlier this year....
I like funky lettering and this project will be no different... while I was cross stitching I had a visitor!
My son that I made the cross stitch for??? he stopped by to say hi!!! (a 1 1/2 hour drive to say hi!)
Here he is with my daughter... I posted on fb that it was my tallest and shortest and I love them both! He is 6'7" and she is 4'10". My son wanted this shot too.... showing just how big his new truck is! He loves to go mudding in it he says... he is a EMT student at present and works at the fire hall in 4 counties.
and while I was shooting pics my sweet Daisy decided to pose for me! Notice her shock collar??? A necessary evil but she knows her boundaries and stays in the yard now... a very worthy investment in the safety of my best little puppy friend. ;)
Thanks for taking time out for me and I hope you will be inspired to try going a new path if you are stuck or at a stopping place...
