I've Hit 100!!!!!!

Greetings dear friends!~ I can't believe that I've turned 100! Well my follower count has anyway.LOL . Thanks to everyone who follows my blog. I appreciate it so much. Still baffles me that I actually have 100 people that like to read my dribble. Getting to know so many of you has meant so much! I just feel bad that we can't visit in person. Maybe someday.For now, your visits and comments in like we are visiting. :)
Don't you just love bargains! I love bargains! I was with my mother the other day and look what I found for $1.49!!

Ghiradelli is just about my favorite chocolate and for the price , it was just begging to come home with me! Anyone know if this freezes well? I was thinking about going and getting more and sticking it in the freezer. Yeah ,right, like it would stay there!!LOL!


Linda let me know that her Easter exchange arrived that I sent her. I forgot to take a picture so I swiped her's. You don't mind do you Linda? Anyway , I found the cuttest roll of ribbon that said "hippity hop, hippity hop, Easter's on it's way". I just had to send that. It was just too cute. I also sent along a piece of opalescent evenweave that I thought she might use for something. Do you recognize the little "peep" scissor fob? I decided to send it to her along with some cute little ladybug and daisy stickers. I stitched a little hanging pillow from Lizzie*Kate titled "Hop Squared",on 28 count pink Silkweavers linen using DMC and Weeks.I used Rainbow Gallery whisper for the tails to make them fuzzy. I finished it off on the back with pink and white gingham and the hanger is a cute little Easter Egg rick-rack. I don't stitch many Lizzie*Kate designs but this one I HAD to do.

April also let me know that she recieved the Winter House 2010 exchange that I sent. I stitched a little house from Pine Mountain and then the snowflake came from a Bent Creek design. I stitched it on 28 count natural linen using DMC, Rainbow Gallery linen floss, Needle Necessities overdyed floss ( now Threadworx) . I added on cute little snowflake and star buttons, then added a Mill Hill snowflake charm. I finished it into a scissor pocket and April has told me that it is already holding a pair of her embroidery scissors so I am happy as a clam. : )

This last picture is of our sweet little "new baby" Cassie. Isn't she just adorable?! She's an Aussiedor. We have had her a few weeks but I just kept forgetting to post a picture of her. She and Brittney get along just fine except for feeding time! LOL . We usually bring her in and feed her. She is soooo easy to train. She has learned fetch, sit, and lay on command already. It only took a day to teach each thing. As a matter of fact , it only took a few tries to get her to sit on command. She is very very smart.

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful day!! It is supposed to be 82 here today! I am so excited! Thanks so much for stopping by today and for all of the wonderful comments and emails and words of encouragement! You ALL are so awesome! Btw... with all of this nice weather putting me in such a great mood , I feel another giveaway coming on! Wanna know what it is and when it will be??? Well, stick around. It will be posted soon!

'till next time,

  7. Your 'new baby' is gorgeous - I'm feeling really broody!!! Some lovely stitches once again! Chocolate, lucky you, with 82 degrees the freezer sounds like a good place for it - best send it over to the South of England - it will survive better in our cold temperatures!!!

Cassie is ADORABLE...her pic makes me want to reach out and pet her! Glad to hear that she is adjusting and learning quickly!
