Time is flying by....

I can hardly believe it has already been one month since Christmas. The days and weeks are absolutely FLYING by for some reason. Others in my family have mentioned the same thing. Well, it gets us to spring faster, which I am really looking forward to. It's been cold here in the Pacific Northwest, and I have had to scrape the frost off the car windows every morning this week. Yuck. Even rain is better than scraping icy frost!!! I am watching the days get a little longer, now the sunshine is directly in my eyes when driving home from work, instead of it getting dark by that time.


My stitching time has been scant, here is a scan of the current project I am working on, a little freebie called Swirlygig from Bent Creek. It's been fun to work on. I completely changed the colors called for in the pattern except the Sable GAST...I didn't actually have the other colors, so substituted some Weeks Dye Threads in colors that appealed to me. I think it will be pretty when it's done, and I will post another picture then.




A couple weeks ago I took my oldest granddaughter, Alana, in to have her portrait taken. When my three daughters were little, I had a special dress that I had them wear for a picture. So I wanted a picture of Alana in the dress too! The photographer had a wonderful idea of bringing a picture of her mom (Amy) in the dress with us, for Alana to hold the picture. (I started to cry when she suggested it...it was such a great idea!). Here are the results...I am SOOO happy with pictures!

Back to the subject of cupcakes...I was window shopping in Michaels the other day, and saw a whole book on cupcakes in their book section. I was tempted to bring it home! This seems to be something that lots of people are doing right now!!! Which reminds me, I need to get some more cupcake liners at the store!!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!
