Happy Mother's Day!

I appreciate my Mom and all the great skills she taught me, especially the love of all things thread!

May is a great month for anniversaries, birthdays and special days for my family. Hopefully I will get all the flowers planted, the deck washed and have some time to enjoy friends, garden stitching parties, golf outings and throw some dancing in there too!

Crystallize has 4 more areas!  Looking good.
Almost halfway!  Can you believe it!
You can order the line drawn canvas and catch up!  Join my group on facebook.

Oh to be this cat!  
It is a life pampered by her people with treats and days filled chasing moths, lizards and bunnies. When the chickens wander over, she just looks at them.
