I'm sure by now all of you have heard about the horrible things that have happened here in Orlando.  Why do these terrible people feel they have the right to take someone's life?  The sweet young girl who had her whole life in front of her, snuffed out by a crazy person.  Fifty innocent people out having a good time with friends not knowing they won't be going home that night.    I just do not understand it.  I pray for those families who have lost someone dear and for those still in the hospitals that will be scarred for life...emotionally and physically.  I have a friend who says "the world is upside down" and I tend to agree.  

To keep my mind busy, I started a new cross stitch project.  This is one I've been wanting to do for years and I felt now is the time.  I have ordered all the buttons (quite a few) and have the WDW threads and  I'm stitching it on 28ct. gingerbread linen.  I love the colors in this and I plan on making it into a wall hanging for this Halloween.  Wish me luck!
Now I can't very well talk about Halloween without showing you some new pics of our Halloween baby.  The first one is of him being a big boy after he pulled himself up all by himself.

This second one is of him and his buddy Chloe.

I hope all of you are safe in your homes tonite and please say a prayer for those here in Orlando that are in need.

Blessings, Barbara

When you see an innocent sweetheart, it brings a smile through the sadness.
