Stitching and Life in the Company of Pets

I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, I'll start with the BIG news first, I'm so excited, I'm going to be a GRANDMA!!!!!  My daughter and her husband are expecting a girl late May!

I love the announcement they made, they are big gamers, ever since they were both young.  For a wedding cake they had Link and Zelda for the topper (they found the figurines and made the topper themselves).

Then, following the gaming theme, since they both still play all kinds of video games, they came up with this for the announcement

I thought it was great, so creative.  Fun part also, was that once you know what it is, it is obvious, but initially not everyone got it :)

Now onto the fun, but not quite as exciting, stuff.  Haven't done near as much stitching as I'd like,  we've had some more turn over at work, and lots of people taking vacation time for the holidays that put us behind while we covered for them, so not as much free time as I'd like, but I did get both of the Pine Mountain tuck pillows Naughty/Nice done and love how they came out.  They were a lot of fun to put out for Christmas (actually still have them out LOL, they make me smile).  I haven't liked very many of the more recent Pine Mountain pillows they've come out with, prefer more their earlier style, but these I thought were adorable.

Other than that, I've finished two crochet cat mats for the local animal shelter.  Really need to get going on a couple of my other WIP's, or maybe a fun new start.  Just got a new pattern from HAED, Maleficent, which looks like it would be a lot of fun.  They were having a 50% off sale and I couldn't resist.  Decisions, Decisions.

Hope you're all staying warm this winter, now I'm off to catchup on your blogs (which I apologize for being so far behind on).

    Congrats on both accounts... for the new baby coming, and for your finishes.

    I have a huge bin of PM kits... The older ones. I won it from a blog giveaway several years ago. I think I've stitched two so far, lol. So many projects... so little time.
