More Finishes

I stitched this small fob up quickly. I have stitched this one many times.....it's just so fun and quick to do.:) I whip stitched the fob together but instead of using poly-fill to fill it I used some rice. The rice gave it just enough weight so now when I lay it on an arm of a chair it doesn't fall off. I wouldn't use rice to fill a larger fob as it probably would be too much weight .

As we all know, I have a weakness for dragons especially cute ones which means I couldn't resist this cute guy.

Krissy and Mac started their new schools today. Mac seems to like his class and all Krissy could say was there was only 3 cute boys in the whole entire school but she did say it wasn't as bad as she thought it would be. I give her a week and I bet there are more than just 3 cute guys in the school!
Today Megan turned 6 months old! I swear it was just a few days ago we brought her home. In those 6 months she has grown over 9 inches and gained 12 pounds. We were extremely blessed because she hasn't had any problems arise from being born so early. I wanted to post a picture of her today but she still wasn't feeling the best and wasn't being very photogenic today. She isn't running a fever but she is being clingy. If you have to walk away from her she gets upset and starts crying which in turn causes her to throw up. Nice chain reaction.
As you probably guessed no stitching for me today but I did pull out my stitching notebook and make a list of goodies I need to see if I can find at the LNS. I am hoping to be able to venture out that way sometime tomorrow. I'm not going to hold my breath because I might just decide to stay indoors and stitch instead. :)
Have a great weekend & Happy Stitching to All!

I'm glad school went okay for the kids. It's always so hard to move in the middle of the school year.

Megan is already 6 months old? Hard to believe !!!!!!!!!

Oh ... I remember those "baby-clingy" days. Hope Megan is feeling better soon and you can get out to the LNS.

I love all of your fobs!! And Fairy Roses is so beautiful! Cutest of all is that little pic of Megan...sorry to hear she wasn't feeling so well.

I'll never forget the day I walked into my 1yo's room to find him awake from his nap and having spread the contents of a poopy diaper EVERYWHERE in his crib. That was a straight to the tub kinda day, too, and I had to recruit my husband to help!
