Meet Claire

This is Claire! Our lovable little girl who has Down Syndrome. She smiles more than not and has the best melt your heart hugs! She loves going on bike rides with us but this year we've ran into a problem..she is to big for her seat anymore ( knees hit my seat ), I like having her behind me so I can talk to her and show her things while we're riding.We thought about one of the tow behind things but they seem so far back from you. Any suggestions?

Weekend Treasures

These are some of the treasures I found this weekend! My niece didn't want the little heart stool anymore so I took it home and painted it. I found the gloves in my mothers cedar chest, the doilie is from an estate sale, and the heart from one of my favorite shops!

The beginnings of my Crazy Quilt pillow.

This is the start of my crazy quilt pillow. You cant really see the

embroidery ( that's probably a good thing since I need a lot more practice.) I really enjoy this,, I'm learning new stitches and I even did a couple of things with silk ribbon!, not to mention looking for the little things to add to it like buttons etc.!So much fun.

Raja and I walked this evening around the school, tomorrow is obedience again and I'm trying to get her ready for her Canine Good Citizen testing. It's been another pretty hectic week so far and it's only Tuesday! Laurie once again pulled through and helped me get my Crazy Quilt pillow started ( yes I figured out what I wanted to do with my fabrics!) I really enjoy looking for all the little laces and things to add to it. I'm going to have to brush up on my embroidery, some stitches just aren't looking like they should, actually they weren't looking like anything I've ever seen!! So I decided to stop for the night and do some blogging. I hope everyone has a good day tomorrow, and enjoy Spring!!!!

This is Raja my 10 month old collie. Wednesday night she graduated from basic obedience and will now move on to intermediate. I really want to try her at agility, or rally. She's a pretty good girl still has her puppy moments but quite the character at times. Her and Claire are best buds which is amazing in itself as Claire was so afraid of dogs until we got Raja. Sometimes I feel like I have two children the way they tease and pester each other at times.
