Update on Wild Menagerie

This is progress after about 174 hours of stitching. It's coming along pretty good.

Last week was really busy and this week will be busy too but I'll get some stitching time in on it.

We had a family picnic at a park not far from the Lake yesterday. It was a beautiful day for it. We got to see Johnny. He sure is growing and ever changing every day. I'd wave at him yesterday and he'd put his little hand out to wave and try to say "Hi". He's not quite 9 months old.

Today we got the news that another niece is expecting her first child. They didn't make the announcement at the picnic as they wanted to tell her parents in private and before the family knew. We are so happy for them. So we will have baby no. 5. But only the 2nd one we'll get to see or know. The other 3 are down south and their parents are divorced so they won't get up here

Well until next time Happy Stitching!

The menagerie is looking good, can really see it taking shape.

Babies are so much fun. Glad you will get to have another close by to visit with.

Looking really good, keep up the great work, such a striking design.

I love all the other pieces you have been working on too, you always choose such lovely designs.

The tiger looks more and more amazing every time I see it! I'm glad the family picnic went well - and what good news, too! Will you be stitching something for them?
