Sunday Catchup ...

Monica (my daughter in law) turned 27 on Thursday. We had a wonderful dinner at The Spaghetti Factory ... their meatballs are to die for! lol ... then it was back to our house for presents and cake ... it was a really nice evening ... here's a picture of my dad with Chris and Monica ...

Monica blowing out her candles ...
and Maddy thinking that the leftover cake was all for her ...

I've been stitching this week but have no pictures to share yet ... don't you hate when you camera battery dies :( But I do hae a couple of things to share ... My Lizzie*Kate exchange arrived at it's new owner's house, Wendy Jo ... When I was reading her blog and saw that she decorated her house in Americana theme I decided to stitch Liberty, one of my favorite L*K freebies. I stitched it on some coffee dyed fabric using the suggested colors. I had a blast finishing this one, I really am having fun with beads ... I'll definately be stitching this one again for me ...

Remember I've been stitching a lot of Valentine designs and had decided to give them away to a couple of friends ... well I really wanted them for myself too, so here's the first one all stitching and finished ...


Hope you all had a great week and a stitchy weekend.

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for Sunday ...
