Lizzie Kate/Sweet Treats/Completed!!!!

I finished the fourth & final piece from the Lizzie Kate Sweet Treats collection last night.  I enjoyed stitching each of these but I do admit, by the fourth one, I was ready to move onto something different. I think the cupcake was my favorite of the four to do. I will post all of the pictures again on this post, so you can see all of them. Now, for my husband to do the framing...when I finished the candy last night, he said, another frame for me to make huh? I told him that all 4 are done now, so he has 4 frames to make. Wow, just added the pictures..would you believe they are all done on the same fabric? You can sure tell the lighting was different with each one!
We had a very long time of having at least one of our grandsons here. We brought two of them home with us at the very beginning of April. We kept one, the other grandparents kept one & one was at home with mommy & daddy. Daddy then left for training, so mommy came north for 2 weeks. (it had been 2 weeks at this point already) She kept all 3 of them at her parents house, but they visited over here often during that time. Then, when she was ready to go home, our son still had 2 weeks of training left. Her parents offered to keep one, so we said we would keep one too, since someone would have to make the trip anyway. So, we had a different one for almost 3 weeks, until daddy came to get them.
Last week, I played catch up around here. I got so far behind on a lot of things, plus, we needed to get our garden put in. "J" had helped me plant all of the different pepper plants, but we still had tomato plants and all of the seeds.
I am starting a freebie that I found online last week next. Funny story to go along with this piece!!! I had my parents pick up a new chart at my favorite LNS : http://www.houseofstitches.com/ They always put a freebie in your bag for you to enjoy. When my dad handed me the bag, he said they chose this freebie for me, because they KNEW I would love it......it was the same one I had found online last week. Does my LNS know me or what?!!?
Ok, I better keep moving here....we are having our small group here for a cookout tonight. This will be our last meeting until school resumes in the fall. I am looking forward to a break all the way around...I finished my babysitting yesterday, until school starts.



have  a great rest of the week!

Oh, all four are so cute, Shari. I think Candy is my favorite--of course--I just love candy... (Well, I love cupcakes, ice cream, and pie, too!!)...

You sure have been a busy grandma caring for one or more of the boys for so long--I'll bet they just love their time with you :)

All 4 sweet treats are such cute finishes!!

You have certainly been busy with your grandsons, and I know you enjoy every minute of it. We really love it when our grandson(who is 20 months)gets to spend time with us!!

It's a great set you've finished! I can't imagine getting much done either with 3 yr old boys around. But I can't imagine having my kids gone for 2 weeks at a time at that age either! But I never had 3 at once. How long is your son going to be gone for this time around? Enjoy your summer off from sitting. Hopefully you got your garden planted before the cold and rain we had yesterday. We really needed it!
