Good REason For Not Posting!

Well, I have been caring for my feral girl Promise who had delivered 4 babies.  The first baby was born on April 17 but died on April 18th.  Promise had two more kittens on the 20th and another on the 21st.  SO she had a little of a problem with the deliveries of these kittens.  I was by her side as much as I could be and if not me my daughter helped out.  She now has three kittens that seem to be growing aand also are very healthy.  I would love to show pictures of them but at the moment with the location of where she delivered them it is way too dark.  She has had a white one with one black little spot on its belly, a grey one just like mom who is all grey and another white one with as far as I see a little grey spot on its ear.  Will post pics as soon as mama lets me : )  Here is a pic of Promise and she is a very caring Mom for her first litter.  SHe will be spayed as soon as she is done nursing these kittens.
Hopefully after Easter I maybe able to find some time for stitching in between work and taking care of Promise and her kittens.  I have other cats so until the kittens are old enough we watch them 24/7.
Happy stitching all and have a very Happy Easter!

What Happened To This Week???

WoW!!  This week went by so fast! 
  Helped my daughter Kristina pack her things to move to Connecticut with her new hubby Andrew : )  She has moved close to the Navy base.  Yes, we just finished packing the truck this afternoon and she left around 4 this afternoon.  My daughter Ashley went with her to help her unpack at her new place.  She will be home in the morning.
  I know I mentioned before that I have taught her to crossstitch and she is at the moment working on 3 WIPs.  Since I do not use the stitchbows I gave them to her along with two traveling totes.  I also gave her plenty of hoops and a whole set of DMC threads so she has everything for her stitching.  She is working on Kustum Krafts Blue Eyes right now and enjoying it.  Here is what she has done so far

The first stitching was before and the second is progress as of now.  You can see she has got alot of the nose done.  She is almost done with the first page.

Beautiful Day here In RI!

It is so beautiful today!  Sunny and in the 50's.  My rose bushes are budding and I think spring has finely sprung here!  My snow birds are dwindling and I am seeing my red-headed finches returning to my feeders!  Hope everyone is having a great stitching week?  I pulled out one of my BAPs which is Cocker Spanials Watching Birds.  I started this pattern Jan. 2006 so it has been awhile : ) I am showing a photo of where I stopped in 2006 and an update to now.

It is slow moving but I am enjoying it!  Happy Stitching everyone : )
