The white fabric is some that I picked up recently at the local Salvation Army Garage Sale - don't worry Michelle, I washed it first. The purple flowers were made from scraps and buttons. This was a great opportunity to practice my sewing and embroidery skills and I really enjoyed making it.
Michelle has received her pillow and says that she loves it! I'm so glad. This was a really fun swap!

If you haven't checked out Kelley's shop, you really should! You will be in for a real treat!
She has things for baby, things for the kitchen, toys for baby, and really pretty totes. I can tell you that the gift items she made for me were really well sewn and great quality. You will not be sorry with a purchase from her shop.
Isn't this baby onesie adorable?Love these kitchen towels!This pear and apple set would make a great baby shower gift.
Thanks so much Kelley! I loved your gift!!

When you look at this pic, remember that the camera adds 10 lbs. Plus, there's the other 10 that I'm trying to lose (I gained it this winter). So I'm really 20 lbs lighter than it looks in the picture. LOL
I'm glad that you can't see the red Gatorade that both me and my son spilled down the front of our race shirts. Isn't that sad? Neither one of us can walk and drink Gatorade at the same time.

Country Ladies Rescue has now merged with another rescue and the new name is Sheree's Dog Rescue. You can view their website here. I received their latest newsletter this weekend and was heart broken to read about a little dog named Ducky, a Yorkie/Maltese mix who was born with hydrocephalus. Ducky has alot of health problems and Sheree's Dog Rescue is trying to save his life so they can place him with a loving family. You can read Ducky's story here.
Sheree's is collecting money for the surgery that Ducky needs. The poor little guy has had a really hard life up to this point.
You can keep track of Ducky's progress on his blog. Let's all send positive thoughts and prayers Ducky's way. He is one of God's creatures, after all.

We look alittle older and wiser in this picture than we did in our wedding photos. LOL But I think we're holding up pretty good. We haven't strangled each other yet anyway, so that's a plus.
So Happy Anniversary Babe! I hope there are many more.

I had to redo the waistband but otherwise, it's done. I'll get pics up of it as soon as I can. I'm very proud of myself for following a pattern.
