Life's Doin's

The fam is still with us, though dad has started work this week in Kansas City, and Celina and Jill have also gone to Kansas City, so Celina doesn't miss her sixth grade orientation.
That means I have this little guy, Tay, to myself. He's a handful to keep track of as he's crawling, and makes a bee-line for electric outlets (covered by plugs), electrical cords (buried behind pillows), and floor-length vertical blinds. He keeps me on the move all the time. (By the way, he just had his second haircut, this week!)
During naptimes - after picking up toys, washing up meal items, and generally setting things to rights - I've been stitching. I resurrected a project not touched since last September. It's Snowmen A to Z by Crabapple Hill. Instead of stitching them in alphabetical order, I began with the blocks I like most. Here's "S" and now the finished "M."
I'm working on "A" now. It's nice to have an easy pick-up project in between life's other demands.


  1. Isn't it amazing how one little person keeps you on the run! You have reminded me I have that stitchery pattern.....I am trying to keep up with another one at the moment..but I think I might make the Snowman A-Z my next project to work on.....stitcheries I can pick up and work on when I have a few spare minutes are my favourite projects!

  2. I bet you sleep good tonight after taking care of little Tay. Little ones sure can keep you on your toes.

  3. I'm sure you're enjoying having the big guy to yourself for a bit. His new haircut is so cute. Haircuts on babies always looks so grown up to me!

  4. Although he keeps you on your toes, I'm sure you're thoroughly enjoying the one on one time with Tay. Love the embroidery, very sweet.

  5. Glad to read about the big family still getting along including Hogan. I am sure everyone sleeps well at night after all the hub-bub during the day. Give Hogan a head scratch for me. Abigail

  6. Oh, he is a cutie though. I have a little Elijah that can turn a house upside down in a matter of minutes, but he is just so cute, that I don't mind.

    Your mittens look great!

  7. You must be having so much fun with Tay, but they sure are a handful aren't they. Love your stitched piece. I can't wait to see more of them. It's always good to have one of those projects that you can pick up when life gets a little hectic.
