8 Years Ago Today....

This came into my life:
and life couldn't be any better if I tried. These past 8 years have flown by and my life is richer having him in my life. I never knew how much him being a part of my life would not only make me a better person but in a way he saved me from a lot of destruction. I sometimes catching myself begging for time to slow down because it is going by way too quickly and it seems like only yesterday I was holding my breath and willing him to live. He came into this world at 4lbs screaming and fighting and he hasn't stopped since. I look forward to seeing him continuing becoming his own person and becoming this great man that I know some day he will be.

The Bookshelf

After getting over my stitching slump I have finished The Bookshelf by Little House Needleworks. I just love how it turned out and can't wait to frame it and hang it next to my bookshelf in my living room. I stitched it on 32ct Linen using DMC threads, I know I started it last year but I stopped keeping track of the time because it was taking away the joy I used to find in stitching. I am now currently working on finishing Colonial Houses by Little House Needleworks that upon completion will hang in my living room.
