I have been so neglectful of my little blog here, shame on me but
the past weeks have been very busy. There was Mother's Day, a couple barbecues, a birthday party, lots of company, some babysitting, a book fair, a concert, lots of working... and somehow in the midst of it all I managed to stitch a little. I have been stitching for a little while every day after work on my Village from CHS. Its taking me a long time to get that next block done but I am enjoying it so isn't that what matters. I just love the colors of this design and I am enjoying personalizing it. On the block I am working on now it has a name of a bed and breakfast. I am changing the name of it to one that friends of ours owns. Jill and her husband Mike own the Shinglekill Falls which is a popular attraction up here in the upper Catskills. Its a lovely waterfall and they have a bed and breakfast right by it. It has been in their family for years. I can't wait to personalize the rest of the charts for my little village here.

We had a wonderful time on Mother's Day. My daughter Jennifer's, sister in law Tara came over with her husband and family, she is also expecting another baby in a few weeks. She brought me these lovely petit fours. Jen and I got up extra early and cooked lots of good food together, so that after it was all ready we could just enjoy ourselves and our families.
Yep these are every bit as good as they look. They were filled with raspberry filling and some with lemon and raspberry together. Wow they were yummy.

I asked my husband to get me one of the cakes from our local bakery, its filled with fresh strawberries and cream that is so heavenly. I thought it would be a perfect dessert for Mothers Day. Isn't it pretty??

I mentioned a concert. My little Victoria and her first grade class put on a lovely Spring concert last week. It was very nice and the kids did so well. Here is Miss Victoria before the concert and with her classmates singing You're a Grand Old Flag. They all sang so nice and so sincere. What a nice concert it was.

I had so many things I wanted to write about but I will save some for tomorrow. I need to skoot off to bed.
Good night all. xoxoxox

I love your Village -- it's great to personalize the blocks, especially when you have such a great name for the inn! The petit fours look delicious, and that cake -- yum!! And the concert! I miss those days of concerts with the little ones. Glad it was a good one! (We just have big kid concerts now. lol!)

Nice progress on your Village, Sharon! What a great idea for the personalization. The petit fours and cake look delicious! Tori is getting so big--I still remember when she was born. Time flies!
