It will go out with my next mailing to WOCS. I have a clear plastic pouch that I collect these small items in and when it's full, it's time for David to make a trip to the Post Office.

This is the Hedgehog ornament from the Little Critter Collection by NMI. It's now sitting in my donation bag waiting for enough ornaments, cards, bookmarks, etc. to make mailing worthwhile.

This is another from Mill Hill's Spring Bouquet Collection. I fell in love with this one when I first saw it, but had to order it from my LNS. It came in last week so I picked it up Saturday morning along with Rootbeer Float and Lemonade.
Unfortunately, it took longer than it should have, because I got the yellows mixed up and had to rip out all of the ice cream. I added a magnet and it's joined Popcorn on my refrigerator.

So, I finally had a chance to stitch and finished this rose for a quilt for a lady with cancer. The quilt is being made by a member of WOCS and she provided the fabric. I think it's a damask aida and although you can't see them, there are embossed roses in the border surrounding the aida square. The chart came from Cross Stitch Card Shop #61.
This is the first time I stitched on this fabric and I didn't really enjoy it, because was too soft and hard to keep taut. I also had trouble seeing the holes.

Today we went shopping and then went to Claim Jumper to celebrate David's 60th birthday. (Kyleigh really likes red velvet cake. She was sitting on my lap and we were sharing a spoon--I was feeding her a spoonful and me a spoonful. All of a sudden she got ahold of a spoon and started trying to do the same thing.)
After lunch everyone went home to take naps because we were all exhausted. Janice put Kyleigh in her crib and went to lie down, but almost immediately heard the pitter patter of little feet running down the hallway.
They've now turned the crib into a toddler bed, about six months earlier than planned.

Now she's excited because Nonni is tossing the ball so the dog can chase it and it bounced near her.
Kyleigh had a fun evening rearranging furniture, discovering that the planter outside is the right height to sit on and play in the dirt, eating dinner, taking a bath in the sink, bringing grandma all the phones in the house and climbing on everything. Oh yeah, we also played with some toys and tried to sleep through all the fireworks (illegal in our city) going off in the streets outside.

First we went to Needlepoints Ltd so I could get another packet of the tiny buttons used on Boo Club and then to Walmart where I picked up a couple of Sharps Containers and Kyleigh got a new top with watermelons on it. Janice also bought her a red tank top and a mesh teether -- she has four teeth coming in!
Our next stop was JoAnn's so I could replenish some of the floss that I needed to finish Boo Club. (I'm doing it in DMC instead of the overdyeds called for.) JoAnn's didn't have one of the ones I needed so we also went to Michaels where I also picked up some Winnie the Pooh bookmarks.
Last night I finished Spiders. I'm now 1/4 of the way done with this banner.

It was a really good game and I'm glad I went. They started off by having parachutists land on the field during the national anthem and then went on to win 5-2. If Kyleigh's not going to be at the game, I usually take something to stitch to keep me from getting bored. Tonight I ornamentified a couple of ornaments. These were donated to WOCS by Donna and all I had to do was make them into little pillows with hangers.

I also finished Black Cat tonight. I'm almost done with Spiders as well, but I need to add a few more spiders.
