So true....

I am going to be so glad to be done work today because I come home, change and head to my sisters! It's a 3hr drive and I am gone for two nights. Tomorrow is the baby shower for Benjamin. It will be a great time. I baked my yummy cupcakes last night, made the icing all up so all I have to do is ice(baby blue icing ;o) them tomorrow.

The other night my husband and I went through some bins that were in storage and one of them was stuff from when the kids were babies. Little outfits, little shoes, quilts(one of them was the very first one I made..I'll post about that someday soon). In one of the bins was a stitchery I had forgotten all about. I did this when Emma was just a baby...14 years ago!!! People always told me, they will be grown up before you know it..so true. Where does the time go?
(you can click on pic if you want to see it clearer)

I was pretty impressed looking at the detail in it...did I do that?? I used to do cross-stitch alot, but I think this was my first and only big embroidery project. All this stuff went to the way side for quite a few years as I was working and raising the kids. I am so glad to have found my creative side again :o)
