Odds and Ends

Thank you every one for all the comments on my last two finishes. I'm not really that fast a stitcher - I've just have A LOT of time lately. Last night I slept for 3 hours and got up at 2:30 - all I could think of is you guys -- "and they think I never sleep as it is -- what would they say now?"

*******************************************************

Waiting patiently for my sister to come get her children. I've come to the conclusion my DD can wait another 20 years to have kids and she's to NOT leave them with me. I'm pooped! Maybe it's the back, the meds, or the fact of the three hours mentioned above but "Come on Keri!"


Rob had Alivia in his lap and starting drinking chocolate milk. She wanted in on the action -



See Keri's hosting her friend's baby shower. I got to help with the decorations yesterday. May I introduce the "Diaper Cake" -



Started The Raven yesterday morning - and this is where my progress stopped this morning at 10 am.



I'm using PTP Fossil. It's lighter than the called for fabric but the colors are showing well. It only has three. The repeats went quickly.


Can't see the baby -- she's crawling after the dog.
Gotta go --
Denise

Sounds like you have had a busy day. I absolutely love the diaper cake. Wish I knew someone having a shower.
Take care, hope you get more sleep tonight.

:) Thanks Denise for keeping them!! They certainly enjoyed being with you guys today -- and just so you know Alivia was in bed within an hour of coming home. You wore her out too!

Oh, I hate it when I can't sleep! You are certainly a good sister/auntie. Take care of yourself, too, though.
