Babies and bibs!

So my boss sent out a message that she was a grandma and I wanted to do something nice. I posted earlier that I found some cute bibs to make

(Exhibit A)
I finished the two turtles in about a week. It was a fun stitch, although my fingers get quite sore and bandaids were close at all times.

(Exhibit B)
I really enjoyed working on this bib. It was the first time I stitched a bib and I've only done stamped cross stitch a few times before. Imagine my surprise when my boss tells me that her daughter in law had a baby as well! Good thing these bibs come as a pair. I quickly stitched up the second bib in about two days.

(Exhibit C)
My boss is off to visit her daughter and daughter in law tomorrow so I was up until midnight last night last night finishing the bib. This is my evidence and excuse as to why I am tired and in need of more coffee today!
Sorry I was so long between posts. I caught a bug and was under the weather for a week, but thankfully I am coming along. I spent Labor day weekend at the shop watching movies and stitching a storm. I worked on my first punch needle piece and I'll post pics later, worked on the Rose Bower Wedding, also pics later, and just generally had a relaxing weekend. Things have been a bit stressful at home lately. We have some neighborhood kids who have been causing problems and they decided my car was a great target. They have done over 1500 dollars worth of damage! Broken window and smashed the door. I have never had anything like this happen before and it is a horrible feeling. It was nice to get away for the weekend and not have to worry. My mom didn't think it was so great the dog and I were staying. Rylee decided she needed to go to China and was going to dig her way there!

Mom has a lot of ground squirrels and Rylee must have thought they were inviting her over for tea and peanuts.

Well I'll leave you with furry baby pics. I'll post an update of Rose Bower on Monday. It will be nice to work on it this weekend and not on bibs!

My friends raccoon she is taking care of until she can release it. Very cute but very feisty!

They looked so comfy I didn't want to move them to use the blanket. I got up and got another one. No they are not spoiled at all!


  1. The bibs look amazing. Such cute designs. Sorry to hear you have been under the weather and that you had damage done to your car. I know what you mean about that horrible feeling, my handbag was stolen from a car boot recently and I felt awful for a few days after.

    1. I remember reading that. It's hard understanding what goes through the minds of people and why they think its okay to mess with other peoples things. Thankfully the cops in my town and doing something about the problem of these kids and have installed cameras all over our street.

  2. Congrats on the adorable finishes AJ. Love the kitty pics.


  3. The bibs are adorable! Glad to hear you're feeling better. Take care -
