Hmmm, yummy sneak peek.... look forward to seeing the new design. Bre's photo is amazing!


So glad you posted! I was one of those people that were about to email you to see if you were okay! I miss your posts! Having 3 kids similar in ages to your kids...I know life gets crazy...take care!

I've never posted a comment before, but I vistit your blog regularly and enjoy reading your postings about your family and your designs.

Linda Crowe

I love reading your blog "almost" as much as stitching your designs!!!

Linda Huson

I miss your blog posts also! I cannot WAIT to see your new design! From what I can see of it, I know I'm gonna love it! I'm presently stitching one of your designs (but doing it a bit differently). I'll share a picture when I have more done!

I like fish tacos - but I use the crunchy shells with mine!

My only worry about the kitty sleeping on the needlework (which is something I would be fine with if my Katie Sue Bird did it), would not be the cat fur - but if they decided to use it as a scratching post - LOL! Ack!

I've missed you! I decided last night that if you hadn't posted today I would just have to email you and do a "well-fare" check. Glad to see your post today and enjoyed catching up on your goings on. I check in most days so I really miss you when you're not here. I'm also looking forward to the new designs in April! Look forward to the receipes too! I like fish tacos expecially on the Plaze in K.C. every spring! Did you see the yummy Mexican lasagna on the Chew today? Looked so good! Let that dear kitty sleep wherever she wants to and kiss her little head for me! Linda in CO


What a fun post! lol about Tilly and all. Yes, I've just had too many Mia hairs in my stitching to let her lie on my stitching willingly. Her hair gets in my stitching anyway. :D Love hearing what's going on in small ways with you all. Talented Bre, fun girls in general. And the sneak peek. Yummy! Looking forward to seeing what Bre has in store too.

Glad you're back! If you were gone too much longer, I was planning on checking on you as well! Glad to know the girls are staying busy, and Sophie's sweet Loo-Loo is safe! The food looks good, and so does the sneak peek at your design. I'm glad Tillie has the run of the house. This IS a cat's world...they just allow us to live in it!


Rubio's is indeed enlightenment in a tortilla. My DH and I used to go to one all the time, however, the town we now live in does not have one and we miss it very much.

We do, however, make occasional forays into Sacramento where we hit up the Ikea as well! :)


i've been busy, busy, busy at work but never too
busy to check your blog almost daily for posts!
i was SO glad to see your update on family and stitching tonight!

i just love sophie's bonkers! so glad Loo-Loo was found! good to hear the girls are keeping busy. pretty soon they'll both be home from school and sophie will be moving on to the next grade and we'll get to hear about the stewart's summer vacation.

don't forget about us who LOVE reading your blog!



Great pictures, as always, Paulette! :) The new design is great!! I had fun stitching it.


Nice to hear from you and the Stewart house! Look forward to seeing the new pieces, too!


Hey girlie, love all the pictures :-). Ordinary in-between can be a good thing. So is Tilly not living with Bre anymore???? Sweet little sneak peek too!!!!


Oh that Yorkie is soooooo cute! And the cat Tilly looks just like my Tigrou (little tiger in French)... he grew up in a French family. But I think he speaks English now lol.

Natalia Canaday

Great post, Paulette !! I enjoyed the pictures and the stories. That Yorkie is so cute, but Tilly is just special (this coming from a doggie lover :-).
I think Bre is an amazing photographer already. That picture is just beautiful and it captures the moment and the atmosphere so well. She is going to be good !!


I was beginning to wonder myself, Paulette, and missing your stitchy and family, etc updates. Yours is one of my favorite blogs to read. Take care of you and yours. Cathryn

Mary Warman

Why is Tilly living with you now? She is adorable and I know she is the boss of the dogs!


Good for Tilly - spanking the Yorkie that is. I might have to send Max over and let her show him who is boss! LOL. The new release tidbit looks great, I am anxious to see the rest of it.

I hope life will slow down for you a bit, so we can hear/see more of you.

Lynn Jones

It's so good to hear from you Paulette! I figured life must be very busy for you at the moment. I used to think I was busy when the kids were all home but sometimes it's just as bad even though they've all left!

I loved hearing about the comments regarding Tilly's nap habits. Although I'm a cat person, I also try to protect my stitching. At times though it seems like I'm fighting a losing battle. Often fur transfers to my fabric from my own clothing! I've taken to always leaving my stitching in a project bag now. Clarisse likes sleeping on those too but at least the fabric is protected.

Too funny that Tilly spanked the Yorkie!! It's good to hear the girls are all keeping busy. Bre's photography sounds awesome and I look forward to seeing her new designs. Yours too!!


How is Bre's quilt going? Did she finish it? I'd really like to see it.
