I'm sorry that I don't have any stitching photos to show you...yet.

I'm still working on my new teaching project that will premier in May at the Inn Stitches Spring Fling. As a teaser, I can tell you that there will be a wonderful painted wooden box with ball feet and a lid. Some of the items that will be inside are a pincushion, a three-sided scissors weight, a custom-made hornbook threadholder, and a very special needlebook. There are 19 different stitches on the project.

My stitching time seems limited these days. This past weekend our son, daughter-in-law, and 10-month old grandson were here. As you can see from the photos, Garrett is quite a character.

Boy, does he like to entertain us!  Such a happy baby and so full of smiles and laughter.


I need to get back to working on my model, but hopefully I can show you some stitching photos soon.

So cute!!!! And that video brings back such memories! We used to do the same sort of thing with DS. He loved doing that! lol! Precious moments to remember and treasure. Glad you had time with the grandson and family!

Oh my goodness, what a cutie pie! No wonder your stitching time is limited. With that adorable little boy I would want to spend my time with him too. :)

He is a cutie! What a great thing that you are close enough to spend time with him and his parents. I love the nose/spoon pic!

Can't wait to see the new class - the box sounds awesome.
