In my shop at LittleMamaHenCo A couple of weeks ago was our Spring Break vacation here in Florida. My husband and I are not beach goers; so, we packed up the kids and headed to the mountains! I usually bring cross-stitching with me while we are traveling, but this time I decided to try my hand at embroidering. It all started when I was browsing instagram and found Fabric and Ink . She has the most darling creations ever! I then went on youtube and looked up some "how-to" videos on embroidery. I immediately fell in love with the French Knot! Embroidery is a great travel craft! It's not the same as quilting, but it makes me happy to see all those tiny knots form into creations. Today being Sunday means that we will be heading to the Homeschool Resource Center to try and finish-up painting the backdrops for my daughter's school play coming up in May. Her homeschool Drama Group is presenting Beauty and the Beast Jr. I can't wait!
MaoMao will be 7 years old this April. SEVEN! The kids were so little when we first found him. He was so tiny too. He was lost and dirty and found our kitchen window to meow beneath. It took us about an hour to catch him. He so much wanted to be caught, but he was scared. Trusting that someone else wouldn't throw him away was hard for him to accept. Finally, with some help from a box of Yoohoo (we were out of milk) and my two littles 'meowing' at him like they were his brother and sister, he came out of the bushes just long enough for me to sweep him up in my arms. He is intelligent and sweet and does not love anyone but his family. He's funny and playful... lazy and naughty ... and he very much considers himself an equal in this family. I never knew I was a cat person, until he crawled up into heart. I've been so busy lately, but I did have time to make 50 little coin purses for a friend. She's using them for her daughter and son'
