Making progress

Project update:
I didn't paint. Decided I didn't know what to paint.
The teddy Bear was too hard, with no pattern I had issues with the head. I wasn't sure if I could just leave it off and call it the headless Teddy!
I did work on the quilt and have it mostly done! It's cute.
And we are kicking A__ on the scanning of photos! So all in all not a bad couple of days.

With company gone I am in the mood to do projects. So this weekend I proclaim, project weekend. I have a painting idea I have been dying to paint. A quilt to sew for my niece. A teddy bear to try to sew, no pattern just an idea. We'll see what gets done. Seems like I have more projects than time lately. And more time than money...story of my life.

Photo scan in progress. I bought a photo scan machine from QVC and it works slick! Shannon has started the scans and I am going to help. Our plan is to scan in all the old family photos and give a CD (or CD's) to each family member. (Hope they are not holding their breath.)

I am taking care of Rylee today while Shannon is at the dentist. She went down to sleep about 10 minutes ago. I miss her, now that I don't care for her everyday. Seems I am more lonely than she is...she has turned into quite the little Mommy's girl!!! And Daddy's girl too, as today when I came she screamed Daddy, daddy daddy...and was slightly disapointed it was only Gramma. Ah well third place isn't bad!

Must run.

fish and company stink in 3 days

This is the time of year I have a lot of company. Last week my brother and his wife. This Sunday, my friend Jeanine, from home. We plan to have a lot of fun...doing nothing. They soon my neice is coming (11) for a week! Can't wait. Another friend is trying to arrange something. Now I wonder could it just be that I am so missed they all seem to travel here this time of year? Or could it have something to do with the fact it's freezing in MN and they are sick of winter?...humm something to ponder.
My sister in law says fish and company stink in 3 days...but not my company, I am happy to have them!

Angel feeling better, thank you cutest Vet in the world! (Or atleast in Broward County)
Now if we can figure out what is wrong with Rylee and fix it...we will be all set.
We are off to the specialist today.

Pet Triplets

Here is the photo of the aforementioned pet paintings. The photo doesn't do it justice - they are adorable!

Pictured from top to bottom: Dancer, Bandit & Angel :)

I think Judy has a future in pet sketches but she says she doesn't want a new career she is retired! Company left today but I won't be lonely long a gal pal is coming this weekend!
