I decided to start Watermelon next. I got a little start on it. I finished the border, but that's all I've been able to do!

I didn't get much done because we had a busy weekend. We went to the In-Laws Saturday. I didn't make it to the cross stitch shop because we couldn't find it. I didn't take the map I printed. I know where it is now though, so I'll be going soon. Sunday, my brother came over and the kids and dh went out on his boat. Here's some pictures of them...

I thought they looked so cute! My mom (on the deck) bought the matching lifejackets and hats for them. They had fun - saw dolphins and pelicans! :) I think they're going to like living in Florida!

And here's the latest picture of Matthew...

Sleeping in his carseat! :) He's getting bigger, some of his onesies are already getting too small. :( They grow so fast! Speaking of growing my oldest baby (6 year old) has a loose tooth! That doesn't seem possible! He was so proud of it too! Well, I've got to change a poopy diaper, so I'll write more later!


  1. Nice start on Watermelon, the photos of the Boys are lovely

  2. Your pear was so lovely, it's great you are starting Watermelon. Can't wait to see more!

  3. Your Pear is so pretty! I too have the Watermelon and Pear. I started on the Watermelon and just love it. I got sidetracked on a Just Nan project that I ordered, but intend to work more on the Watermelon. The Crescent colors are beautiful. I saw the new Apples pattern that LHN came out with but not sure about it as the Apples are green. I will think about it though as I love Little House and Country Cottage Needleworks. Debby

  4. Your kids are so darn cute!

    I've stitched Watermelon too - just debating on how I will finish; perhaps another pinkeep. I'm anxious to get Apple!

  5. First of all, Your children are beeutiful! Congrats on the newest one, he is precious. I love your work, the pear turned out great as I am sure the watermelon will!

    I will be back to visit often!


  6. Your boys are too cute! Pear turned out great! I just picked up the new one called Apples-I am going to try it over one.

  7. Have you seen Apples that just came out? I really like these designs and think I will get some. The boys look so cute in their little hats and life jackets. I can't believe they saw dolphins, that is so cool. Your little sleepy guy is so cute. Ann.
