~ No Longer Waiting~


Hi friends~

Last Wednesday was the 3rd goal date for the embroidery to be ready. Somehow Wednesday turned into Saturday. Then, I was able to go to Michaels and pick up my Christmas present! This beautifully framed ( thanks to Mister ) embroidered piece now hangs in our breakfast room.





Do you see that beautiful frame he picked out? He knows me so well~







I do believe this is cartwheel worthy & was definitely worth the wait. :)

A little Riley update:

We went by to visit Riley the other night and he is doing GREAT! We took him a celery stick dipped in peanut butter ( one of his favorite treats. ) Riley has really taken to his new owner Eric~ we could see the bond has already started to form. We were able to hold him and give him sugars and when it was time to go he went right back to Eric. We felt soooo much better about our decision after this visit.

Have a beautiful day!

Hugs~ J

Morning, Dear Jessica! Oh, how beautiful your embroidery turned out! The frame is outstanding and yes, your mister is good! I know you're so proud of this piece. It's so lovely.
Oh, I'm glad to hear Riley is liking his new owner and I know how you must have felt sensing the bond!

Hey Jessica!
Oh girl, this looks beautiful...your mister did wonderful picking out that frame...yes, definately worth the wait.

Glad to hear that Riley is doing well with Eric. I had to laugh... when I saw that Riley's favorite snack is celery with peanut butter. My mister eats that every day too!
BTW...Thanks for coming by my blogs....and don't worry about keeping up girl, I can barely keep up with myself these days! LOL!! Stop by as often as you can though. I always love to see that you came by.
Have a great day!
xoxo,
Queenie~

This was certainly worth waiting for! What a treasure to have and always have your mammaw with you (did I get her name right? Sometimes I get confused). I love the frame too. It looks like something I would use! Have a great day. Today is much warmer here. The snow always brings warmer temperatures. It was 22 degrees when I took Kaje' to school and I was shoveling snow without a coat, woohoo!! Cindy P.S. So glad Riley is adapting well.

Hi Jessica!! Oh my goodness your framed embroidery looks mawvelous!! Hubby did real good!! I'm also so glad to hear that Riley is doing great with his new owner. I bet you let out a huge sigh of relief! And I wondered if you've found anything new on CL since your bed? I got so traumatized by that chandy I'm afraid to look! Lol! But that certainly won't last! *winks* Hope the new year brings you all kinds of wonderful! Vanna
