Good afternoon ladies; My DH and I want to thank you all for your very sweet and caring comments and Prayers, you have all been so wonderful.. and Isabella thanks you as well. She is holding her own so far, we are having some trouble getting her to eat, seems like every thing she eats dose not stay down... her daddy has been trying everything to get her to eat, but when she does it just won't stay down,, so he is calling the Vet to see what else can be done.... keeping our fingers crossed.....  But she is no worse either...we are thankful for that.....

I have been keeping busy with my new project I have started.. and thought I would share it with you... Just down the road from where we live I found this wonderful little Quilt shop called QBee Quilting... love it,, she has some wonderful fabrics and patterns.. I found some cute embroidering patterns.

Are they not the cutest things... love them.. So I found my tracing paper and traced it on some muslin. I decided to use black for the stitching..

I like how the black shows up. After I am done I plan on giving it a coffee bath to age it a bit.. I plan on making a pillow with this one... I have just right fabric for it,, should have taken a photo of that,,,, oh well I will when I get it all done.... then you will be surprised when you see it....

Well that is about all I have been up too this week,, not much to speak of.....sorry about that..... I hope all my dear friends out there are keeping warm and cozy, with all this nasty Snow.. It has been a while since I can remember when we had a hard Snowy Winter as this... back home they are really getting hit with lots of Snow and Wind.... Today the Sun is out and looks so pretty, but the wind is really blowing, I am not sure but I think I felt the building move...... ooooooooo  lol;  I may need lead shoes to keep me on the ground...hehehe   So stay warm and safe dear friends.. thank you all again for your sweet Prayers,, I treasure each and every one of you... God Bless;

Hi Alaura! Oh, I hope the vet can give something to little Isabella. Poor little thing. I know this is breaking your heart.
Now, I'll be you're in quilt heaven with that shop just down the street! How cute is the design. It's a primitive isn't it? Can't wait to see what you do!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :O

Hi Alaura,
I hope little Isabella starts to feel better soon. I can imagine how that just breaks your heart to see your little baby sick like that.
Your embroidery design is going to be so cute. Can't wait to see the finished pillow. That's like the kind of stuff I like doing, too.

Hello Alaura! That will be so pretty when completed! And I'm so sorry that your precious Isabella is ill. I'll say special prayers for her. Both my mother and I have cute Shih tzus and we love them like the true little babies they are!! I bet the meds will work and this will soon just be a bad memory!

Big TX Hugs,

Hoping that Isabella will be able to keep down her food. Please keep us posted.
How nice to have found such a neat quilt shop. I love your embroidery patterns. We have a store (Home Goods) that has the tea stained muslin embroidery art framed in black frames - I LOVE it!

Alaura, I'm so sorry to hear about your precious little Isabella, and pray that she will be feeling better soon. I know how it is when a beloved pet is sick ... you feel so helpless.

I love your embroidery patterns and will look forward to seeing what you do with them.

Keep us posted on Isabella. I hope you will have encouraging news to report soon.

Hope this finds Isabella feeling better and keeping her food down. I also think your embroidery design will be cute. When I go to sales I try and pick up all the embroidery I can, Still saying a prayer.
