I'm gonna be a mom again!!!

....of a new furbaby!  It's been a long time since Missy and we're finally ready for our next one.  She's a brand new baby Shiba Inu....we've already named her Lulu and she's 4 weeks old.  She'll be able to come home when she's 7 weeks.  So my baby is coming home on Oct 15th.  And we're so excited.  We go out to the the kennel where she was born every Saturday to see her, give her a cuddle, and see how much she's grown.  She has already stolen our hearts and we already know that she's going to be soooo spoiled!  LOL  Oh my gosh I can hardly wait until (1) Saturday and (2) for her to come HOME!!!

I've got some happy news on the stitching front.  I finished The Song They Sang, and I love it.  It's the second addition to add te the sampler wall I want to create one day.  I have to get a puppy one that I know Diane has done from LHN. I will have to whip out the c/c and have a look around to order it.  hehehe! Isn't it amazing that us stitcher's can always find an occasion or something to stitch about/for.  LOL

I didn't get a chance to work on Molly last weekend, that's why there was no update.  But this weekend I got to spend some time with her and this is how far I got.  She's coming along.  I just love working on her.  So that bodes well for the other three that Kati and I will be stitching on our Sunday SAL. 

I'm going to focus on doing some ornaments, I haven't really stitched any over the summer.  Mostly because we weren't home a lot of the time and I had other things that I wanted to work on more.  I've actually found a couple or three reindeer that I am going to stitch, so as much as I said I was going to give up on them, I have found some refreshing pieces to move me along with my reindeer commitment to myself  :)  Plus I would like to do a couple of things that are quick finishes. I'm in need of some immediate gratification.  We all know how that is when we start working on big pieces, and it seems to take forever, it would be nice to have a finish now and then.  So that's what I will fulfill with my ornaments.  :)

Thanks so much for the compliments on my figurine.  She's porcelain, and she's actually made in Hungary, we went to the factory where they are made in Hollohaza and she's called Seamstress.  I love her.  I picked up another couple of pieces while I was there as well to add to my collection that I already have that my mom and my aunt's started me on.  I love them all.  And I always get excited when there are new pieces. :)

Awww, Barbi, the new addition to your family is darling--and so is your finish! Great job...

I know exactly what you mean about needing the quick fix that ornament stitching offers--I just love doing them, too :)
