Back on the Web

I have been off-line for 2 months now. I have been very busy at home and I have been sick too. Nothing to worry... about my health. But a lot to worry about my time-management issues. A lot of unexpected surprises and blessings were placed on my lap. I can not just say my graces and thank yous... I have to work on it. Hence, I am still a very busy woman. But I'm not regretting it. 

I wanted to tell everyone about one special good news right now but I still need to zip it. I hope you all understand and won't bombard me with guesses or hint, hint. 

The month of May was a busy slumber for me. I guess I got stuck with the spring fever and spring laziness. Oh, yes! I was lazy. In fact, I still have 3 back orders from my shop. I'm very lucky that my clients are very patient and understanding. Of course, I feel so guilty. Lesson learned, I can not stitch 3 projects at a time for clients. As of now, I will only accept one order at a time... especially now that I have added responsibilities.... which brings me to the month of June. I'll tell you more about it on my next post. 

Meet our new member of the family. Arumi. 

She is a Pitbull. Mr. D and I fell in love with her at first sight. Isn't she adorable? 

This is her now... 2 months old. She grows fast. She can reach the door knob now and oh what trouble she gives Mr. D. He calls her a whirlwind. She can destroy almost everything in his room. 

I would love to show you some of the flowers in our yard that kept me away from the world for awhile. 

These are my favourites last spring. Honey suckle. We have an abundance. Thanks to them we got butterflies around us for the whole spring. 

I got new knock-out roses for my front yard. Red ones! And oh, they grew fast. And you can still see the beauty of our pink antique roses. Loveliness! 

Hurray to the beauty of these wildflower. Black-eyed susan. They flocked stunningly on both corners of our lane. An attraction to and fro our house. They are still around! 

These are 2 finished pieces for my charity stitching. It was already received by a stitcher friend in Canada. She will make it into a quilt for a dear friend of hers who is fighting from breast Cancer. The You Are in My Heart is designed by Ursula Michael. I modified the Hope design by changing the original colours to pink. It was designed by Joan Elliott. 

I honestly miss stitching everyday. 

Have a nice weekend everyone! 


  1. Oh welcome back Angely, my sweet friend. So glad you are alright, and your little (not for long) Arumi is absolutely adorable. What a great addition to the Dobbs home. Hopefully he won't get into too much trouble :)

    1. Thank you dear Leslie! I hope Arumi won't grow fast... to keep her out of trouble. LOL!
