Granddaughter was over Tuesday and I was relaxing while she watched a program. I started stitching and she asked me "Grammy will you make me a picture?" me: "of course honey. What do you want it to be?" Her: "I want a princess, a castle and a carriage in it."
hmmmm. We got in the computer and she spent about 30 minutes on my lap and we searched stitching sites, Amazon and found nothing like she wanted. She kept saying to me: "go back to the tea cup Grammy." This is what she wants and it is on order. I like it and will enjoy stitching it and am glad she will have one that she will enjoy as she matures and this Grammy visualizes it in her adult home in a special place.
Wednesday when I was stitching she asked me "when will mine be done?" haha
I have taken up another Hobby or Project: Genealogy. Wowzer is it fun and very time consuming. I am working on my maternal Grandfather's family and can't get any farther back than my Great Grandfather who was born in 1824... the hunt goes on. Several weeks into this project I did some research on ways to organize all information one finds: printed paper and digital files. It is better to organize them in the same manner. There are a lot of blogs and written articles on doing genealogy search and I appreciate them. After a lot of contemplation I choose a non -binder type of organization. I'll talk about all this in a later post.
The only problem with taking up Genealogy is I'm not scrapping... Soon I will balance it out; probably after summer is over. Gardening is thrown in this mix also.
I will soon be doing a layout, soon, for my Granddaughter's book about her love of fancy headbands. She is four now. I know, hard to believe... here is a cute from the behind picture of her helping Grampy paint our house. Seriously; a girl has to have the right accessories for painting; especially a big purple flowered headband. She continues to charm us.
I was bored with pictures etc. on our walls and moved some around. In our 'more formal' sitting room I put three pictures I've stitched above the fireplace. On the mantel are four Lenox flower figurines I love and have had quite a few years. The one in the upper right is an embroidered piece and the other two are called Brazilian embroidery. The dimensional flowers are all done with needle and floss. This is what it looks like.
That's all for now. Take care all.
