She's HERE!

So  Happy to announce that my great niece has arrived.  She and mommy are doing well and going home from the hospital ASAP!  Praising God she arrived safe and healthy! I've attached my favorite pic of Maelyn and big sister Lily.


I'm also happy to say her sampler is Completed!  All that's left is framing.  Thank you for all your encouragement.
I have so much to be Thankful for this year, including my husbands large family. 


We had plenty of food, laughter and hugs to go around.  Hope you did too.  Thanks for stopping by and Have a Wonderful Weekend =)

Updates

Not much stitching this week.  Dont have any energy, got a cold.  Here's a peek @ my Patriotic square for Love quilts


On a personal note, wanted to share a photo of the flowers my hubby sent me last friday.  I adore yellow roses, so glad they included some.  Considering participating in our churches 10th annual Chili Cook-off on Sunday.  I've only missed one year, so I'll probably whip up a batch.  Think we had 25 entries last year.  I'll let you know what I decide in a future post =)  Happy Stitching everybody!

Miss Monkey + Exchange

Happy Thursday!  For those of you wondering about the designer of my Monkey Birth Sampler...its my friend Sunshine Stitches.  She graciously created & gifted it to me to match my niece's crib set .  I'm so blessed to have such a talented friend =).

Got a fabulous Fall Exchange in the mail today from Lynda.  The Scarecrow you see is an ink pen and the coin says  " Reading Makes Cents".  It has all my favorite colors.  Cant wait to use that varigated Floss on something.  Hummm need to scour the web for a good chart....
Got to get back to stitching.  Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Photo Update

As my blog suggest...here's the progress on the baby sampler.   My plan is to complete her name (I had to frog part of it--ugh) and then lay it aside until she arrives.  The Doc's are keeping an eye on mom and Maelyn soo she may arrive earlier than scheduled.  In that respect I shall wait to finish until all the stats are in! 

Will be working on my love quilt square as well as some Christmas gifts the remainder of this week. Hope to show some progress by weeks end. 

Would love to hear from you so please leave a comment.  Have a wonderful day &thanks for stopping by!  Pam

Works in Progress


 As promised earlier today, here are the Pics of my two WIP's...

Maiden Voyage

I've been considering a blog for 10 months now and finally "bit the bullet" this morning!  My goal for this blog is to motivate myself and readers to complete projects more quickly and enjoy them longer.  I hate that "rushed to complete something in time" feeling.  Hopefully by blogging my progress I'll better stay on track--with your encouragement of course! 

I'm currently working on a Baby Sampler for my great niece and a patriotic quilt square for Love Quilts USA.  I'll try and add a WIP (work in progress) pic of both a little later.  {i'm still getting to know blogger ;)}

I hope you'll enjoy this journey with me....Let's get stitching!
