We built our new home on my family's farm. Our family owns a nice size farm is South Mississippi. About 2 years ago, my parents deeded each of the five children our portion. Our portion is in the center, with my younger brother to the south of us, my older sister to the north, and my other siblings to the west. My father raises cattle and has a small flock of chickens and my younger brother and his wife have a herd of sheep. Well, these sheep are stubborn and graze wherever they want, which sometimes means my yard. Yesterday, they all came for an unannounced visit (how rude!). Normally, this drives us crazy, but there are lambs in the herd now. Cute, cuddly, sweet lambs!! This little guy is very sweet and friendly. He comes to the back door wanted to visit. His mother didn't accept him immediately, so he has been bottle-fed and gets to sleep inside with the dogs (yes, the dogs. They love him!) I can't tell you just how sweet and cuddly he is. Just look at that little face!! (The other handsome one is my husband, Hobbie.)
Now, the rest of this post will not be as cute, but I do want to share my progress on current projects. Last night I completed the third part of CCN Santa's Village North Pole Post Office. I love this series. The colors are so bright. I only have the first 4 parts of the series, so after the next part, I will put it away until next year when I can purchase the remainder of the patterns. (Remember, my resolution was to only stitch from stash this year.)
The other two projects are Shakespeare's Peddler Ann Womack and Jeannette Douglas Designs Acorn Stitches. I am really enjoying both of these. Ann Womack is just beautiful. I have completed a good portion of the eyelet alphabet, which is so much fun to stitch. I am working on this pattern one page at a time. I am almost finished with the first of four pages. So exciting! Acorn Stitches is actually moving pretty quickly. If I continue to stitch at this pace, I estimate that I will finish in a couple of weeks. The colors on this one are beautiful.
Well, I have a lot of cleaning to do today, so I had better get started. Have a great week.
My husband, Hobbie, and I have been married 23 yrs. We have two boys (19 and 15) and three cats. We both work fulltime, though my job is more flexible. I love to cross stitch! My other obsession is organization.
