The baby has arrived

My niece, Heather, had her baby at 9":30 PM May 1. Weighing in at 8lbs 11 oz. Addison Kay made her entrance into this world. We're all excited. Her middle name is after her Grandma, my sister, Kay. Kay and Ken made the trip to see the baby the next morning. Ken had to work at noon and Kay had to work that night. So they made a 4 hour round trip that morning.

Today Kay is coming in to town for the week. We have a busy week ahead. Tomorrow she's shampooing my carpet then mom's so then we'll probably do some shopping to get away from the fumes. Our brother, Tim, is moving into the same Apartment Complex I'm in so I am in between helping him. He'll call when he's ready for me to go back to the apartment. So Kay and I will be cleaning out his room at my parents house and turning it into Dad's office. Sometime during the week we'll go to Heather's to see the baby. Heather lives about 45 minutes from here. I have a Dentist Appointment Thursday. I hate going to the Dentist but I really need to I have a tooth acting up.

Friday I have to take my cat to the Vet to get his rabbies shot. I dread that. Although it's just a couple of blocks down the street, getting Whiskers into the carrier is going to be a chore. He's not going to like it. As it is I have it out and open and he goes by and closes the door. Those are just a few things we will do this week.

I've been stitching little by little on Noah & the Gang. It's slowed down quite a bit but I'm plugging away at it.

Question of the week was about heirloom pieces. There are several pieces I have done I hope will be heirlooms someday. This piece being one of them. I made about 20 years ago for my Grandmother and got it back when she died. I'm hoping one of mieces and nephews will want it some day.
Well, my Mom just called and said Tim and Wendy were loading up and getting ready to head over this way so I better go meet them.

Until next time, Happy Stitching!

Congratualations, I'm glad that everything sounds like it went well. You mentioned that your Noah's Ark is slowing down, but it looks like you've made good progress to me. Enjoy your visit.

Congratulations on Addison's arrival, and I pray Mom & baby are doing wonderfully!!

I see you've made progress on Noah's Gang! More wood planks and some water...which I love the blue in the water by the way.

Your heirloom piece is lovely, too! Do you remember the title? =)

Lovely to "meet" you Barb :)
Thanks for popping by recently. Reading blogs has been my downfall in the stitching progress area too!
The 4 furbabies here say hi to Whiskers
