Such a hard life! Poor Murphy is so tired, playing with Tony and Kristin takes so much energy!

A Stitchy Gift

Last weekend I received a late birthday gift from my sister, Trudi (no blog). What a wonderful surprise it was!

I love both the cupcake pincushion and the scissors fob!

Thank you, Sis!

Meet Murphy

Murphy is my new grandpuppy. He is a real sweety!

He is still a little peanut, and we aren't quite sure what he will look like when he grows up or how big he will get. Meanwhile, Tony is kept busy entertaining him.

My life in a nut shell

Well, not exactly a nut shell, but not much bigger!

Can you imagine all your documents, recipies, stitching statistics, etc. on one little memory stick? Can you imagine your life if you misplace said memory stick?

The good news is that I found it! It was only missing for three weeks......three very long nervewracking stressful weeks.

Oh, and it is now backed up incase I misplace it again!

The monitor is dead. Not worth fixing a monitor on a laptop.

Scissors fob from Irene

I received this lovely pansie scissors fob from Irene recently, as she was my partner in the Crafty Natter Scissorskeep exchange.

I just love pansies! She did a great job with the stitching and finishing!
