And here's the love of my life - Nikko.

Nikko is the one who sleeps with me and stays by my side when I'm sick. She's about 11 or 12 years old now. I made the little veil for her when Judy got married out of leftover materials from the pew bows. Doesn't she look like she's praying? :)


The blog would not be complete without pictures of my cats. These are of Lucky - when we first got her - she was so tiny - she was a rescue kitty and was just over 4 weeks old, we think.... Anyway - she got MUCH bigger, and now she's way bigger than our other cat, Nikko! I call her "Pretzel Cat" because she sleeps in the most twisted positions - I guess it must be comfortable!

Stitched Cards

Here are two cards I'm teaching in November - both are stitched with metallic threads. The wreath is beaded as well.

New Cards

Here are a couple of cards I made for my submission to the Design Team at Wiggles and Giggles, a local scrapbooking store, which I'm happy to say I made! I've also started teaching classes there. I've submitted the cards to a magazine too - we'll see what happens there!
