OR daughter and Juliet are coming

This Saturday evening OR daughter and Miss Juliet are coming for a visit. So yesterday while I was cleaning up the upstairs and getting everything ready for them, I gathered up some of my blue things to make me a new header. I used a couple of family pictures, a quilt I made, some dishes my mom gave me, a sampler, a book of Toby, a clock that I bought and redecorated, and other blue items. I didn't put the grand daughter's pictures on because OR mom would prefer no to have her face on the web, which I understand. But trust me they are the light of my life! Family matters the most for me.

I would say that blue is my favorite color, because I wear that color the most. However, I only have one room, a bedroom, in our condo that is decorated with blues. My kitchen is pink and green with a touch of blue, and I have a pink and green bedroom, but everything else is fairly neutral. I have a lot of quilts hanging on the walls so they add a lot of color to our home.

Tomorrow is the last day for contest

Leave me a caption to this picture of Toby and the hat I took to quilt retreat to win a surprise gift. The contest ends on June 10, 2009. I will let my husband pick the best one. Good Luck!

Guess what I won/Sarah's hat

This is the hat that I knitted for Sarah. It turned out okay, but I don't have a picture of her in it. The little baby carriage planter is one that I found at the Salvation Army when MI daughter was pregnant. I was going to plant baby tears in it and give it to her with a note that said, "Let this be the first of many baby tears." But I never got around to finding baby tears, and the longer I had it the more I liked it for myself. So I put some dried baby breath in it and put it on my kitchen counter. Someday Sarah can have it.
Beedeebabee, http://beedeebabee.blogspot.com/, was having a fantastic giveaway to celebrate the start of her new blog, and I WON.
Can you imagine the excitement when I found out I had won two of the beautiful pins that Paulette makes out of felt and beads? They are so beautiful and the handiwork is incredible! Being a person who likes to make things, although Paulette is surely an artist, I know how much time and love go into handmade items. I just love them. Thank you Paulette! Check out her blog and her Etsy shop. Okay I have teased you enough. Here is a picture from Paulette's blog.

I can't wait to get the package.

Sarah and my broken finger

This is our newest pic of Miss Sarah Jennifer at six months. Emily at Tutus and Tinkertoys, (She is located in the greater Detroit, MI area), took this and many, many other pictures of her. It was sooo hard to choose which ones to buy, as Emily does such a wonderful job! Check out her website at http://www.tutusandtinkertoys.com/ to see her work.

Last Thursday night I broke my middle finger on my right hand in two places. What a nightmare! It is so difficult to do anything, although I am learning to get along. Here are the details of what I did. I was looking for something, per usual, and I was looking in my great-grandmother's trunk. Of course the album wasn't there, so I closed the lid on my finger, and to make matters worse I lost my balance and sat on the trunk with my finger inside. OUCH!!! I managed to stand up and get my finger out and yelled ICE as I ran upstairs to the kitchen. MI daughter who was visiting quickly got out the ice and Fred got the zip lock bag. I think the fact that I got the finger in ice so fast really helped a lot. I didn't get much blood under my finger nail or too much swelling. We were off to the ER in a few minutes. Tomorrow I go to the DR to see how everything is doing.

I am signed up to make some ATCs for a swap. I am thankful that I only have to make eight and they are due at the end of June. I did start one last night and I was abe to manage, but it was slow work. Red Lead is sponsoring the swap.

My caption contest is still open until June 10th. Scroll down to the picture of Toby and the hat in the quilt retreat posting. Have a great day.
