Today I give you a photo of my future grandchild and the dog. :o) Isn't this cute??? Today will be a busy day for me, as I am having dinner guests tonight. I worked this weekend, so today is house cleaning day and getting ready for dinner! There is a family in our church, whom we adore, that "took us in" right from the start, when we moved here. We have been going to the church for probably three years now, and they have become good church friends of ours. I decided it was time to have them over and have some fun! The husband is a guitar player and singer and I've asked him to be the "entertainment" tonight. It should be fun! Have a great Monday!

Busy me!

I've been busy having fun. Once I finally got started cutting fabric, I can't seem to stop! I was up until after 2am this morning, working on my quilt plans. There will be a few embroidered blocks in the quilt. I found these designs on the internet from a coloring book (page) site.
Did I ever show you my light box? My husband bought this for me as a Christmas gift one year. One of the best gifts ever... makes transferring patterns so much easier. I used to tape the pattern and the fabric to the glass storm door... worked well, but this is much more comfortable!

One of the fishies... will be embroidered in colors to match the fabrics.

I'm finished transferring designs, so I just packed up the light box and cleaned my work area some. Looking forward to sitting down to embroider. What have you been working on?

weekend plans

My husband has promised to take me to see the movie: Julie and Julia tomorrow evening. I have been waiting for this movie to come out. I wish all my blogger friends could go with me. Anyone seen it yet? I am working this afternoon and my poor husband came home to even more yard work this weekend. We had a rough storm Wednesday night and we had four of these trees to go. He has been busy cutting them down and removing them. Now the poor guy has to mow the lawn. I feel bad for him because he works away from home all week, just to come home and do lots of yard work.
The trees that we lost were our Bradford pears. The wind split four of them down the middle. We have a few more that we will probably go ahead and take down, as well. The former owners of our home planted them too close to the house and now that they are mature, they need to come down. It'll be nice to open up the yard a little.

Easy Yummy Snack

I want to share with you the easiest yummy pizza snack ever! Kids and adults, alike, love these little pizzas. The ingredients are : flakey canned biscuits, shredded cheese, pepperoni, and pizza sauce. After stretching the biscuits to make a "cup" inside your pan, put in a teaspoon of sauce, one slice pepperoni, and sprinkle with cheese.

Bake at 375 degrees until they are lightly brown.
These are also good when they are cold, so they make an easy snack to take to a party or get together at work. I usually make two packages at a time for my family and they are usually all gone in no time. The possibilities are endless, as far as your toppings go, but we stick with simple pepperoni and they are always good. Enjoy!
