Meet Tess

Many of you have seen the creative talents of Wendy on her blog. She makes the cutest bears and last week I received one as a thank you!

I am now the proud mother of Tess. Isn't she the sweetest little bear? She has a movable head, arms and legs. I just love her feathered hat. She looks like she's heading off to a tea party.

Thanks so much Wendy for sending me one of your special creations. I just love her!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a good week.

My Pride and Joy - My Daughters

Yesterday, my daughter Andrea (left) and I went to visit my daughter Justine (right). Justine is in her third year of college studying Nutritional Science at UC Berkeley which is about a half hour drive from our home. My husband stayed behind so it was girls' night out.

We are on a mission here to eat a healthier diet and Justine shared this link with me. Check it out. It's chock full of wonderful recipes. I've already made the black beans and roasted beets this week.
I wish you all a very Happy Easter. Thanks so much for stopping by.

A Finish After 20+ Years

I stitched this design way back when I was first married and it's been sitting in an unfinished pile since then. When I found out that Wendy makes bears, I thought it would be something she might enjoy. I finished it into a little pillow for her.

I went ahead and ordered a book of french designs that I've been wanting from in Canada. I've seen several of the designs from this book on French blogs and can't wait until it arrives.

I hope you all have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
