I was chosen from Rene La Frog as a PIF receicpent. PIF stands for Pass It Forward. I will stitch something special for 3 people with the next 365 days. In return, these 3 people will stitch for another 3 people. If you want a gift from me, please leave a comment. If more than 3 sign up, I will pick 3 names out from a bag.

Family Picnic

My nephew from Oklahoma was in Connecticut visiting his grandmother, his mom's mom. My sister was able to get him for a week. He was in West Haven this past week. My sister had a picnic at her house. To make the story short, Jacob's mom left CT on bad terms with my brother and most of the family. We were told not to say a word to my brother so my brother was very surprise to see Jacob. Pictures were taken and there is one with my dad, brother and Jacob. I got another one with Gramdpa and his grandsons.

Some of other family members were there. So a group of them took a walk to the beach. The beach is down the street and my sister has a ocean view from her bedroom. They got back and my BIL cooked a couple of hot dogs and hamburgers. So when the hot dogs were done, my BIL yelled "Jordon, you're up!". Jordon, playing with the kids, went picked up the bat, thinking it was his turn to bat, and than asked "Where is the pitcher?" And no one was playing a baseball game.

I did found out our family is growing again. My cousin is expecting a baby around February. I am hoping to see her next month at a baby shower. My cousin's girlfriend is expecting a baby on September 28 and her shower is next month. With my girlfriend expecting in January, I think there might be a lot of baby finishes in the near future.

2 fFinishes and a Start

I finished my July Block swap finally. I wanted to do two but time didnt allow me. I stitched JBW Designs French Country Cat. I used Carrie's Creations Glory thread. I have been dying to use this since I got it for my birthday. The fabric is Sunburst Yellow by Sassy's Fabbys. I think the colors came out great. I will definately be doing this one again.

When I was at my closest LNS, I picked up a small kit of a Morning Glory. I stitched for my SS in one of my yahoo groups. I am showing it off beca
use my SS has no idea I am her Sister. I had directly send her packages from a couple online stores. She will be getting her last package this week.

I finally started my Lavender and Lace Fairy
Dreams. I am stitching on Joblean Wood Violet. The fabric was another birthday present and think it will be perfect for this pattern. I started in the center. So what I stitched is more the background of the Fairy. I am going to try to work on her every 2 weeks.

This is my first post. I decided to switched over so I can add more pictures to a my blog. My current works in progress (WIPs) are Mirabilia's Enchanted Mermaid, Lavender and Lace Fairy Dreams, Mirabilia Winter Queen. I am thinking starting Winter Queen again, mainly I really dont like the fabric and I am just dragging my stitching on it.
I do get behind on my stitching. I need to finish a Celtic Knot for an exchange, a Flip flop exchange, my monthly block swap, which is going to be a patriotic cat, a Christmas ornament and Lizzie Kate design. I will have pictures in my next post.
