Woo Hoo! Ann Medd is finally framed! Actually, she was done last week, but between our not so perfect weather around here and getting ready for Easter, I didn't have time to take a picture of her! So here she is in all her glory:
No stitching to show this time around, but I am making somewhat good progress on Elizabeth Clayton and should have a finish on her soon. I've been playing with stash to figure out what the next victim of stitching will be! It's a hard choice.
But something exciting happened yesterday (at least for me). The Easter Bunny came to our house. He comes every year and leaves baskets for the kids. Even though the biggest kid is getting ready to head off to college, he still wants a basket. Mom never gets a basket. I think the Easter Bunny thinks that either Mom is too old or seriously doesn't need the chocolate!! You know "a moment on your lips, forever on your hips" thing! Well, I manage to eat a couple things while the Bunny's assistant (me) makes those baskets. But after the hunt was over, the kids told me that I had to hunt for something. That perhaps one of the Bunny's assistant's had left something for me. Of course, the kids can't keep quiet and just make me look for it, they have to hint that it's near something that I had recently done. So, of course, my first thought is Ann, who was propped up against the wall in the dining room:
So I looked behind Ann.............
Becky talking about an abundance of frogs - flower frogs that is!! That got my attention wouldn't you know!! Love, love all those frogs you found Becky!!
So now Mom is "with it". I can read blogs, emails and troll the net from anywhere. I can download books, figure out where I'm going with GPS. It was a little eerie when GPS pinpointed us to the back of our house - kind of like Big Brother watching. Now, I don't have to spend endless hours at dance lessons staring at four walls when it's too cold to get myself into trouble shopping. I am just beside myself!! I was informed by the other Easter Bunny's assistant (that would be my DH) that this would just about cover all those gift giving occasions this year (Mother's Day, my birthday, etc.). But that's good in my book. I'm now going to be technologically "with it" like my kids.
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter and has a great week. We're in for some heavy rain this week, but that's okay in my book. I'm taking the Ipad into the craft room and watching a tutorial on sewing! Oh happy day!!!!
