Couldn't let another day go by without updating my blog, especially on such a wonderful day as Mother's Day! Hope all of you have a wonderful day.
It has been so long since I posted and I didn't realize how many days had passed.
Yesterday we lost a dear family member. My daughter's cat Moses, who we call Mosey most of the time. What a love bug he was. He was 15 years old and our Katie's cat. When Katie got married she took him to her new married home with her DH Tony. He has been ill for the past months and going through a lot. Finally he passed away yesterday and my little Katie is absolutely devastated. We all are very sad to lose him. We have had him since he was a 5 week old ball of fur. They brought him home here to be buried on our property where he played for many years, chasing birds and sitting on the roof guarding us like he was a mountain lion. Mosey has been through proms, boyfriends, weddings, births and deaths, I like to think that he is up in heaven with my sister, who loved him too. We are all going to miss you so very much, Mosey.

I have not had much time for stitching lately, been really busy with work and family stuff. Not to mention I should make the Guiness World Records for having the worse cold in American History. They should bottle some of my germs and use them instead of ammunition in Wars, but I don't think I would wish this cold on an enemy. I just can't get rid of it. UGHH!!
Last Sunday, our little baby Anthony was christened. He is getting so big already. He is now 5 months old and such a sweetie. He laughs and chuckles nonstop. So much fun. Here he is with his parents. Katie & Tony.

and here he is playing jet-pack boy yesterday. LOL

hahaha check out that bib, it says CHICKS DIG ME! Too funny!

I need to take an updated picture of Ellen Birdseye. I have just about finished with her. She is lovely. I just need to stitch two little buds on it that somehow I missed. In my excitement of thinking that I finished it I was admiring it and found the two bare buds. DARN IT! Have to dig out that color again. I never was so happy to see a piece done. I really loved it and its so very pretty but seemed to go on forever.

Have a Happy Mother's Day dear friends. xoxox

Oh, my gosh, that Anthony is a heart-stopper! No wonder chicks dig him!

Merlin, my old man cat, and I are very sorry to hear about Mosey. We know it's so difficult to lose a furry companion.

Hope your day is happy.

Sharon, hope you have a most wonderful Mother's Day! Love the photos of your lil one, he is adorable. So grieved to hear about your kitty's passing, it is so hard to let them go. We lost a female earlier this year and she was also 15.

Will look forward to seeing your finished Ellen Birdseye, I adored stitching this and it is one of my favorite framed samplers!

Margaret said...

Oh I will wait to see Ellen Birdseye with anticipation! Sorry about your DD's cat. He looks like s sweetie. Your grandson is adorable!!!

You have a beautiful family, Sharon. You are truly blessed.

Sorry to read about Mosey though. Pets are such an integral part of any family.

Take care and hope to catch you on-line soon.

I am so sorry that Mosey is gone. I lost my Molly this week too. It's so hard to lose a beloved member of the family.

Anthony is a doll!! He is growing so fast!
