I got to spend the day with this handsome little guy and his sister on Friday!
Even though they both weren't feeling so good, he had a moment to give his
Grandma this wide-eyed grin. What a cutie!

Sewing Room Update!

A couple weeks ago, I painted my sewing room a nice brown taupe color. Okay, you can see in the photos, the creative process is still in action, but it is an improvement to me and feels more welcoming. My friend Tanya does the vinyl wall decor that you see in the photo. (Just one more stitch.) She has an Etsy shop if you're interested in her doing some for you! Her prices are very reasonable.

The Colors of Christmas

I've had a few days off so more time to sew. YEAH! Here is the quilt I'm currently working on although the colors aren't coming through very well. Look for it in my Etsy shop toward the end of the month!

Saying Goodbye to Soxie

Today I had to say goodbye to my favorite kitty, Sox, who was 95 in cat years, 15 in people years. He was not getting well. It was hard to do but I feel it was the right decision. I will sure miss that little guy. He was a very good pet, and quite spoiled I might add. Here he is in happier times:
He used to like coming into my sewing room to make his presence known. What a sweetheart.

Our new Grandson is here! Eli Ray Carlsen was born Thursday evening, May 27 and is a big healthy boy at 9 pounds! I spent the whole afternoon yesterday holding him, when I realized maybe his mother would like a turn! He is so sweet and can't wait to see him again!

And this is how Maya feels about it! (She loves her little brother) and you don't want to try holding him if she's around!

That's HER baby brother!
Aren't grandkids the best?

The Happy Mother to Be....

And surprises.....

Maya found a willing friend!

It was a happy fun filled day!

Things have slowed down for me quite a bit as I've had a touch of pneumonia this past week.
Seems all I do is cough and sleep, in that order. Hopefully the rest I've been getting will pay off!

Coming Up!

I've been working trying to fill the Etsy shop and this is the current project:

I call it Blue on Blue, this picture seems a little dark, it is a brighter blue. This one is ready to be quilted, as I work on another quilt of turquoise and tans. Look for them both in my Etsy shop in a couple weeks!
