Happy Monday!

How is everyone? I feel like I am neglecting my blog (and my beadwork) so I thought I would post a couple of teaser pictures of my may BJP. As I said in a previous post, I don't want my daughter Jess to see this page until it is finished, so that's all I can post for now. At least you have a taste of what it looks like for now!
We had a wonderful weekend this past weekend. On Saturday we had a family cookout at Mike and Jessica's house. My sister Kim and her husband Alex were visiting from Texas so we all got together to celebrate seeing them. Her daughter Kara and hubby Adam and their 2 little adorable girls were there, My hubby and I, Jess and Mike, daughter Courtney and grand-angel Kileigh, my Mom and dad were also able to come for the cookout. It was nice catching up with everyone. I wish we all got to see each other more. Its so hard having family out of state. We just have to make the most of it when we are able to get together! HI KARA!! I am so happy to know you check my blog every week! Love you all!

3 Dogs and a Cat!

Well, not really! That is just what I have worked on this week. The Siamese cat pattern I cannot take credit for. It is a pattern by Deb Moffet-Hall. The Dalmatian and Samoyed patterns are my own though! I cant seem to get away from making these pins. Someday I hope to do each breed recognized by AKC. That would be an accomplishment since there are currently 150+ breeds recognized by AKC. Yikes! May need to rethink that idea huh? I am still plugging away on my May BJP. I am not ready to post it though. I have more work to do before I will show you. Sorry! I want it to be a surprise for Jess when she sees it, since it is all about her! I know you are looking Jess...I can just feel it! Take care everyone!

I am still alive and kicking! I have gotten a decent start to my May BJP, but I don't want to post any pictures of it for now. I am doing my May page to honor my daughter Jess, and I know she pops on here to check my blog everyday. So, I am not going to be posting pictures quite yet!

I have also been doing some beadfaerie work for Suzanne Wester. She sells her patterns at the beadcoop, and has been wanting her patterns beaded up to be sure they will turn out. I have done several pieces for her over the years. This is my latest work named "Leader of the Pack" I like how it turned out. I am going to frame it to hang in the computer room. You should check out her patterns, she does a bit of everything including some gorgeous loom work. Take care everyone! Look for more updates soon!

She Holds Her Little Girls Hand....

Like I once held hers. My youngest daughter Courtney turned 21 today! Happy Birthday Co! I cant believe you are 21, seems like just yesterday you were born. I took this picture yesterday, when Courtney Kileigh and I went to the park. It was such a beautiful day, and we had lots of fun. I love you very much. MOM
