Good ole summertime/My week in pics

I am so excited. I signed up ages ago to take an online class with Big Picture Classes. The instructor is cute Amy Powers of Inspired Ideas. It's called Happy Go Lucky Stitchalong. It's going to be a small sampler with 25 squares. Yesterday was the first day.....sure you can still sign up. Only $10......and you buy your own supplies. You make a happy list and do your own thing or follow along with Amy. Great videos and the music is so sweet. She shows you how to do each square that she has chosen. I used to do alot of needlework, ages ago, and it is all coming back. These squares were a little rough, the grandkids look a little geeky but I am loving this.
Sorry for the big blur
My dogs love me being home. Bunk bed sleeping. That blanket is my favorite cozy blanket......sweatshirt material.

I was a winner. First in a long time. I won this necklace from Tahra's Shop. It was for two initials but she did three for me. I am combining it with some other ones that I got as a gift from one of my kids. The giveaway was sponsored by Tarah's Between you and Me. (Tahra and Tarah....confused?) It came in this sweet blue box with a beautiful brown satin box. Do you notice the table it is on. Remember my oops table. I went over the finish with a spray paint, Heirloom White by Rustoleum......just a light coat. It came out just perfect for me. I sanded down the edges and love it now.
I also won this great book "Vintage by Nina". It is so beautiful. Sandy of My Shabby Streamside Studio. Love that girl. I can't read it because it is in Swedish (think that's the language) but the pages are full of amazing photos. Thanks Sandy and Tarah.
I spend alot of time with these cuties this week. They are so sweet. They have eyes and eyelashes to die for. They are Doodle's brothers. She had to get glasses and braces this week. A rough week for an almost 9 year old. Of course, I got some cuddle time in with her as well.
These flowers are from my hubby. He felt bad that I was tortured last week with those scopes. They helped my pride alot.
Okay, that is about it bloggy friends.....except for an update on Jacob.
He had surgery yesterday and is doing okay. I think this one was to take him off the lung and heart machine. But I think he is still on a respirator. He still has heart surgery to go through. But the little guy is hanging in there. All the prayers are helping. I know Viv appreciates them.
Now go out (or stay in the AC) and have a good week-end.

It's difficult enough when your grown up babies go through things..but even worse when they are small because they can't always communicate how they feel..

Your little Grands are sooo cute! :)
I wish I could see my little ones more often. I miss them.

Your stitchery is sooo sweet! Reminds me of a childs drawing..I love it.

The stitched kids are so fun. I don't think I'd have the patience for that, so I'm quite impressed!

Hi Debby, Are you a Creative Circle grad? That was the home party with all the craft kits. Went though the stitching then and so glad to see it's coming back. Love the free form style, but not brave like you...If I give it a try, may I copy your button jar? Too cute! Have a great weekend my friend!

Looks like such a fun project with all the little squares! Hope you'll show it again as you go along and then the final project too.

Debby - that looks like fun. I haven't done any embroidery in years. Congratulations on your winnings. It's fun to get gifts in the mail, isn't it? And what cutie pie visitors you had this week. I bet there was some serious snuggling going on at your house.
