Happy Birthday, Owen

Today is my youngest grandson Owen's 6th birthday. I can't believe that he could be 6 already. It seems like he was just a chubby toddler.

I've been busy being a Nana the past few weeks. Since I've retired I love going to all their school things. Our oldest grandson, Wiley, was confirmed a couple of weeks ago.

Note the cuffs hanging out of the sleeves. We had to force him to put the tie and blazer back on for the picture. What is it about young boys and ties and jackets?

Since then I've been to Grandparent's Day at the youngest GD's school, a spring concert at her school, a spring concert at the second youngest GS's school, and last night we went to one of the twin's piano recital and out to dinner with them afterwards.

I can't believe that I haven't written for so long. I haven't been making a lot of progress on my stitching. I think that I have too many projects started and way too many that I want to start. I have managed to finish two small pieces. The first is The Trilogy's Summer Spots that will eventually become a pinkeep.

The second is SB's Year In Stitches June. I started this series forever ago and this year I'm determined to finish it. I think this piece will become a flatfold.

The other night I started the Blackbird design freebie that everyone was stitching a few weeks ago, but haven't done enough to take a picture. My other pieces are coming along very slowly and I'll try to post an update soon.
Have a good weekend and happy stitching!

Owen is a cutie and I laugh about your comment about teenagers. I've got one and you would think that I was trying to pull his teeth out getting him into a jacket and tie. Must be in the genes! Love your stitching too.

Such a cutie, your little grandson. Happy birthday to him!
Your two finishes are so lovely. Really make you think of summer and holidays and garden time.

Nana has been busy, and what a great way to show your love, by being there, at all of these activities. You are a great Nana, Kath!!

Such cuties, I know you must be proud! I love your recent stitching, great work!;)

Owen is adorable, Kathy! And love the pic of Wiley - typical young man that tries to get out of that jacket & tie as soon as possible. LOL Glad you are enjoying all their activities!

Your finishes are wonderful. Love the SB piece, especially!

You have two very handsome grandsons Kathy!

I love your finishes. I especially like seeing your finished SB. I always forget how much I love them until I see one finished.
