She's 17 months old now. . . . . .

Our girl Gracie really looks big, doesn't she?  She is as fluffy as a feather boa!  Well she did have a bath (shower) last night and that's why she looks so poofy.  Here nose is all wet as Ron is watering right now and she keeps sticking her face in the hose to get a drink.

OK. . . . . . . don't you agree????  This is the top of one of our barrel cactus and I think the fruit (which holds seeds) look like tiny pineapples!  Aren't they cute?  Beautiful flowers will follow shortly.

I have just finished designing the last of the ornaments in the series.  They have been fun but this will be the last year for them.  But here is some happy news for those of you wanting another seasonal band sampler. . . . .  Rita just finished stitching Autumn and it is on it's way back to me.  I've seen a photo and I'm sure you'll like it (I do and so does Rita!).  It won't be out for a while yet but I thought I'd deliver the news to those of you who had requested another one.  Next year I'll get the spring and summer ones done and complete what is now, a set.

Keep stitching friends!

  5. Gracie sure is beautiful, I love her shiny "coat".

    The bloom of the cactus sure DOES look like little pineapples. :-)

    I really enjoyed stitching Autumn and so glad to hear that there will be summer and spring coming along. (I was sure hoping that's what would happen.)

    My fellow LHN fans are going to love Autumn!
