WIP's and a brag post

For the Witches Hollow fans













For the Jardin Prive fans







A big Thanks goes out to Laura for posting the La D Da trunk show at Inspired Needle


I dug this out right away on Thursday. To my surpirse I had already started a little of the border

"Mocking Bird"









Now for the brag...


DD Heather graduated college, Class of 2011, Associate Degree in Nursing

She had a recognition program in the morning for the presentation of pins. She received one for nursing and one for the Alpha Delta Nu Honor Society. We are so very proud of her. In the class of about 40, Heather was the only one working full time and schooling full time, plus with a family. Thank Goodness!! she has a fine husband that supported her.

She works at a hospital in the PICU, in June she is going to the cardiac unit.



I am missing the stitch in at Inspired Needle tomorrow due to gas prices :(


Thanks again for all the comments and e-mails, they are what keeps me in stitches.
