Our little cowboy

Hopefully you had a more productive stitching weekend than I did. I didn't have a lot of time, and a good deal of what I stitched, I ended up "frogging". I wish I knew why I can't count. I finally resorted to putting in some vertical grid lines and that is helping.

I'm working on the Mary Busby Ackworth sampler which I love. This is such a beautiful sampler, and I'm most anxious to get it completed and framed so that I can hang my four Ackworth gals together.

I just had to show you the newest photos of Haiden that arrived last night!! Our little cowboy!! When I emailed my daughter, Carolyn, to get permission to post Haiden's photos, she told me that she had made the vest and chaps. (Of course, that pleased me.) It also brought back memories of the costumes I made for Carolyn and Stephen.
Some of you may remember that when I was in Texas in July I had hoped to find Haiden his first pair of cowboy boots, but I didn’t have any luck. I now know where to go when I return. At least I was able to get him a cute book entitled The Brave Cowboy by Joan Walsh Anglund. What a darling book it is! This will be the perfect thing to give him the next time we're together. Maybe Carolyn will even take a photo of him reading it in his cowboy outfit.

I can't believe how big Haiden is getting! He is just so adorable! And in that picture of the three of them, you can see he gets his good looks from his mom. :D Hard to tell with dad with the sunglasses. lol! Love the cowboy outfit! Oh, and good luck with Mary Busby. She's a beauty!

Ellen Haiden is just too cute for words! The cowboy outfit reminds me of my brother when he was a little boy a lot of years ago. He was so funny - he would shoot anyone but never my mom - nobody could make Brian shoot my mom!
Lots of Love

What a sweetheart Haiden is in his cowboy costume. I almost said "Giddyup" when I viewed the photos. What a charmer. I know the houses he visited just loved him.

Thanks for all your compliments regarding Beth's and my stitching. You truly make us feel great and we are so appreciative of your blog, board and website. Again, many thanks for all you do, not only for us, but stitcher's worldwide.
