A new bundle of joy!


Well I'm just in the best of moods today! Not! I'm losing my pink laptop that my husband bought me because we can no longer afford the payments ever since he bought his way too expensive truck! I feel like he just gets what he wants when he wants and does NOT think of the consequences ever. Of course I'm the one that pays for it every freaking time!

GOOD NEWS: Today I feel like designing. I have these cute coffee designs in mind and if PCstitch Pro ever decides to work correctly today I may get them charted out. All works out well you can expect to see several coffee related freebies here and me stitching each of them!

Stitching, crocheting, rain, and clay oh my!

Ok well fabric is lighter but this shows the stitching better. This is the 2nd chair in the series from the cat's whiskers. I got this far and then did the heart like 3 times and none of them looked right so i got frustrated and gave up. I think i'll add it in a different way.

I made this little purse for Destiny. Its a freebie link is here I just changed the colors and made tassels for the ends instead of shamrocks. I organized my craft room looking for 3 crochet hooks to finish a baby blanket and they are no where so I will have to look harder or buy new ones soon!

Then we got rained in big time! The rain hit my door and flooded so hard my entry way was all wet. It had come in the bottom of my door. So instead of going outside we played with clay!

haha I know funny huh? Its all one color cause Kiley combined them all. Since Destiny is really big on cake decorating right now I made this little clay cake with a teddy bear on top. Yes she is into teddy bears too. LOL ok my miniatures leaves something to be desired. Oh well we had fun while we waited out the rain!

Have a great week everyone! The girls have their school physicals tomorrow and poor Destiny may need a shot that wasn't required before but is now.

Oh! I want to share this video. Duke just went bananas over the peanut butter this past week! I was LOLing so much!

Beeyatch by Subversive Cross Stitch

Beeyatch by Subversive Cross Stitch
Finished this one up yesterday while watching a few movies. I just love doing up these patterns in this book. This is the 3rd one i have done. Not sure how i will finish it up so for now it will go into the finished but finished drawer
Also for anyone thats interested we are onto Step 3 of the pineapple plant. It has to stay in this glass of water for 3 weeks. I'll change out the water every other day and we should see roots growing from the bottom. I'll try and post this weekly so you can see the root growth. I'm putting it on top of my refrigerator in the meantime. Keeps the animals and children and DH out of it.

Growing your own pineapple


Today was my first time to cut up a real pineapple and i remembered that you could grow the tops, so i hopped online and found this awesome site with instructions and pictures to boot! So we are on step one letting it dry out and the scars to heal itself. See all those brown spots, its going to grow roots there one day. If you want to try with me heres the link here

And since my girls or Manzo havent been on here in a while lol, here they are!

That game she is playing must be intense! (Picture by Kiley)

And my cutie asleep on my book shelf. No its not normally empty but i had just finished handing out Avon books when I came home to this. 

Have a great day! Stitching pictures soon, i'm sorry!
