Sugar Skulls

The older girls made sugar skulls in celebration of Day of the Dead. They are so bright and colorful. I just love these every year.

I absolutely love this sweater and it felted up nicely. I made a pair of mittens and a pair of woolie pants for the babe.

McNabb in October

We started out our October with a fabulous day trip to McNabb. We got to visit a lot of John's family. All the kids had a ball! They roasted marshmallows and made S'mores with John's uncles, shared Halloween treats with John's aunts, and celebrated Vincent's birthday a few days early. A great time was had by all.

So.................what did we do for John's Birthday?!!

Well, the kiddos and I scurried home after school, did a quick pick up of the house, tended to all the various animals, as swiftly as could be done, in the pouring rain, threw together and baked a cake, painted a piece of muslin for the center piece of their DADDY quilt, practiced spelling words, decorated the back door with drawings and letter magnets, and made some dinner. The best part is because of the pouring rain, we all got to be home instead of running 1, 000 places for soccer practices. What was on the menu... roasted pork tenderloin, extremely sweet corn, and garlic bread. The cake was lemon with lemon frosting. After dinner we all snuggled in on the couch and watched a movie, The Call of the Wild. The kids seem to enjoy the movie and the bonus was that they got to stay up until 10pm.

just so that everyone understands this drawing...the "F" word Carmen is referring to is the word FORTY...since next year he will be forty.
Here is the center piece for their DADDY quilt, that the children will be working on for the next few weeks.

I just finished another block for my quilt, some more fun bird embroidery!

Dog Bed for My Friend's Poodle

My dog trainer has become a good friend of mine. Her recent request was a dog bed for her new big poodle. Although Flirt is still a puppy, she will be big soon enough, so a 24"x36" doggy bed was in order, winter is coming. I really want to put bows on it, but since she is still very much a puppy, they would only get chewed off! Emilia found it very cozy to sleep on last night!

The Pups...Sally and Buttercup

Now that the pups are getting older and have successfully completed some obedience classes, we are trying to let them out to roam the house a bit more. Today The Golden Girls and I had a lot of fun just hanging out. Of course, I could not get a pic of Copper because she always sticks so close to my side. So here are today's pics of Sally and Buttercup. Sally is 16 months old and Buttercup is 10 months.

New Outfits for Picture Day about midnight the night before picture day I realized the twinnies needed something new to wear in their picture, so here is what I came up with...
