I've been lazy about blogging. I've had some finishes, but have been lazy about posting photos. So......I can't find anything I really want to stitch. Planning to go through my stash tomorrow to see if anything catches my fancy.

Sheeze. Too bored to stitch. This is a first.

It's been an interesting month. My beautiful, wonderful son Michael turned 37. He's my baby and I think he's finally got used to my calling him that.

We survived the flooding here. Not all of Lousiana was so lucky. The Morganza Spillway was opened to drain waters that were too dangerous for Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The sad fact is that thousands of others had to suffer for our good luck.

Yesterday was Memorial Day here in the States. It's the day we honor our fallen heros of combat. It's a big thank you we owe to them, as well as those who fought and lived to give us our precious freedom.

So I'll go in search for some photos now. Maybe it will spur me on to other things.

This is Michael with the three grandkids. They belong to a Mutual Admiration Society.

A dear friend's daughter is getting married this weekend. This is the biscornu that I made for Jessica as a wedding keepsake.
Her wedding colors are red, purple and black, so I used them in the biscornu. I wasn't really sure how it would finish up, but it really is very pretty. I like it.

Two Royal Wedding keepsakes. The first is by Kelmscott. I used the materials called for. I actually finished stitching it during the wedding.

This is the keepsake from the Sampler Girl. I used DMC threads and fabric from my stash.

I couldn't end without some photos of my Sweet Baby. Yesterday I made my first puppy treats. She really likes them. Very simple to make with very little mess. And not all those additives that store-bought treats have.

So that's it. I hope my mojo comes back. Yuk. Sheeze. A revoltin' turn of events!

Have a great evening and Happy Stitching!

I saw and heard lots of discussion before the spillway was opened, but I've heard nothing about it since, how it actually did affect the people in the path of the flooding.
I'd like to know more, where can I find out?
