Ms. Vallie chose her name out of the scraps of paper that I put on the floor for her. Before I could get my camera, she was starting to chew them up so I had to grab quickly. LOL She's a little bugger.
I have emailed Melody and notified her that she has won.
I will be placing some more mini totes in my store soon. I'm doing Christmas in July and several other designs. Look for them soon.
Now to a bad subject. I don't know how many of you are on the 123 Message Board but I posted on there the other day and I received so many hugs and prayers for what's been happening in my life. You all know that our daughter, Jenn and her husband and 4 boys moved into our house last year. Well to say it hasn't been working out would be calling it mildly. Don't you think that if children and staying in your home they should follow the rules of the house! Well I do but Jenn didn't. She left them get away with murder and now our house is literally a mess. You cannot believe how many nail and screw holes there are in our walls that we have to fix. It hit the fan early last week and we had a very big blowout. Needless to say they have moved out except for some of their larger furniture and me and Jenn haven't spoken since. She's told me to have "a nice life" so I'm taking from that that she's out of it. That is for her to decide. I've always said that the front door to our house is a revolving door because she's moved in and moved out so many times I've lost count. Anyways that's what I've been dealing with and that's also why I've been sewing so many bags. My sewing room had become my only place of solace. I purchased a new pattern from 123 the other day...it's the new Nora Corbett one called Gigi.....one of the Bewitching Pixies. I just thought were darling so I'm anxious to start it. Now I know most of you remember last year when I sold off all my cross stitch supplies.....wanna guess why? Because they were not paying any rent....no help on any of the monthly bills like electricity so I had to sell my cross stitch to pay bills. Sad isn't it! I had collected for years and years from working at LNS's around Orlando and now they are all gone. But now I should be able to start again....I'll be able to sit in my stitching chair....with Ms Vallie of course....and stitch again. I can't wait. Well I've talked long enough and I just wanted to say again... love to all you ladies who put up with me and my way of blogging.
Have a Blessed Day!
