Framed pieces and expecting news

Happy Monday!!!!!


Yesterday I went to The Inspired Needle found Here for the Stitch-in

Wonderful stitchers, food and stash

I picked up two framed pieces
Quaker Garden by Blackbird Designs





Winter Wonderland by Blackbird Designs


I was excited to get them posted, that today was a gloomy day, so the photo's are really bad and don't show the beauty. They always look better in person anyway

Additional stash I aquired

I don't like how Homespun Elegance package thier charts, now in a thin plastic that is sealed, so when you open it, you ruin the plactic. How do you keep the pages together? besides using your own expensive zip lock.


Linda borrowed me the Sleigh Bird chart, so when I returned it to her yesterday, I gifted this back for a Thank You



Now for the expecting news....

This is DD Heather and her hubby and Brianna

(photo taken last week at Brianna's daycare Christmas program at the hospital, where heather is an RN)

Brianna'a going to have a baby brother or sister
So that makes me Grandma for a third time.
With all the trouble Heather had with Brianna being 10 weeks early and 2.9 lbs. Both their lives being in danger. She is considered high risk, please say a prayer for her and this baby. She has had several blood test to watch (I think) her count, she has a scheduled ultrasound in the middle of Jan.




I know this is such a busy time of year. Even I have fallen behind in commenting.

Thanks so much for taking time to comment or email. I love reading them.


Happy Stitching!!!!

Framed pieces never look as good in a photo as in real life! I'm sure they are even more spectacular in person.Congrats on going to be a grandma 3 times over! Hope everything goes smoothly!

What gorgeous pieces. I'm crazy about the BBD one.

And fun new stash too? What a great day! I guess Homespun Elegance is trying to cut corners to hold down costs like everyone else.

And yea for the good news about the grandchild to be. Sending good thoughts your way.

First of all, congratulations on becoming a grandmother again. Your little Brianna is just a doll!!! I definitely will keep your daughter in my prayers. I saw your pieces yesterday and the photos do not do them justice. They are both even more beautiful in person! Thank you again, Ranae for my "ornie"! It was hung up in my kitchen even before taking off my coat!!
