Thank you all so very much for all your wonderful comments and emails that I got about Ellen Birdseye. I was so thrilled that everyone liked her so much. She is pretty and I have not had her framed yet but hopefully soon.

Once again, I have been so busy and every day thinking I need to update my blog but somehow I just don't get the chance. This weekend I spent time catching up with email and now that I have a moment will catch up with my little blog here too.

Lots of family things going on, including a very ill son in law Shawn who has been in the hospital. He has been ill for awhile and finally a little over a week ago had some major surgery. He is still very ill but getting a little stronger every day. Thank you God. He is my daughter Jennifers husband and more like a son to me then a son in law. I love him dearly. I hope he gets well and comes home soon.

and me I have just a small complaint... another lousy cold. UGH!! I hate colds summer, winter anytime. I hate being stuffed up and coughing all the time. People look at you like you are "Typhoid Mary" and can't say I blame them. LOL Since I work with children all the time I thought by now I would build up some immunity but guess not.

No new stash to speak of but I have been working on 2 things that I have been wanting to do for some time. One is a Halloween design by Lisa from Primitive Needle called Near Halloween. I am so forgetful but I think I won this chart as a door prize last year from Lisa. Thank you again, Lisa. I love it. I haven't gotten too much of it done but I just love that moon. I am stitching it with only one thread over 32 ct pear. It looks much better in person, I like the way the one thread looks. Looks even more primitive to me.

Isn't that moon a dandy? I just love it.
I read lots about a 15 sided biscornu and you guys know how much I love them, so I decided to try my hand at one. I started stitching the design that I found free on the internet at STITCH-CREATIONS. I am sorry that is not a link I have been trying to make one and for some reason Blogger is not cooperating this morning.
This is just a few of the squares I have done so far. I need to make 15 of them before I can put them together and I am really anxious to get them done. Aren't they pretty?

So look for an update soon on them. I can't wait. I think biscornus are the neatest little things.
The week after Mother's day we had a little luau. My 4 children came home and it was very nice to have them all here. We had lots of fun. I didn't take as many pictures as I would have liked to, too many pina coladas & Bahama mamas I think. LOL But it was sooo much fun.
Here is my little Hula girl Victoria

No you won't see a pic of me in a grass skirt, HAHA. Not enough grass around here for that. LOL It was lots of fun though.
Here is my Jaime who has her little flowers in her hair.

and here is Raymond, my youngest with his nephew Anthony. He has been away at school working on his masters in Theatre and this is the first time he got to meet Anthony in person. They had so much fun together too. Anthony looks lots like Ray when he was a baby.

Here is Katie (Anthony"s mama) who will probably kill me when she finds I posted a pic of her. LOL Sorry Katie but you are just too cute.

The rest of the clan must have been running and hiding from me.
I just have to close this post with a new picture of my grandson. He is such a ham. The moment he sees a camera he smiles. LOL he is truly my grandson, all my kids did the same when they were babies too. LOL HAMS ALL OF THEM.

Have a great Sunday everyone, hey its the last day of May. Summer is almost here. xoxox love to all.
