Here are some pictures of some bobbins I have painted recently. The first picture shows the bobbins in a group. So which bobbin do you like??

In the next group of pictures if I can do it right is a bobbin I painted in celebration of the birth of my new grandson Peyton. Mark sent to me a picture that he drew and I tried to paint it on a bobbin. Shown are all the sides pretty much. I did add some flowers at the bottom and a winking sun LOL. I tell you ....I wish I could draw right out of the air.

I really don't have much else I can share with you at this time. I have been working on designing some ...."There Be Dragons"....that is very slow going....I really do wish I had some magical tatting dust.....

New York State Senator Hiliary Clinton was in Rochester, New York and met up with some of the Union members that my husband belongs with. My husband is in the back row second from the left. The strike is still going on. I do wish it would end but I don't see an end in sight. My husband's comment about meeting Hiliary was...She looks pretty good for her age....LOL

A baby buggy I have here. I just finished this last evening. It is going to be a part of a baby announcement for my new grandson Peyton Lee. Now to do some tatting to put with the buggy. Wish my fingers would move as fast as my brain cells do....LOL
Chrystal and Peyton went home from the hospital yesterday. I took Timmy Guy back home....now to go and visit sometime when Peyton has his eyes open will be a wonder.....

Here is a picture of my only two grandchildren that I have. Timmy Guy and Peyton Lee. Timmy is so excited!!!
Today ....I have been so out of it. I have been really sick as I have posted before. I have also been getting up early in the morning and staying up at night. Then there was yesterday with all the excitement ( a good kind of excitement) Last evening I took Timmy Guy up to the hospital so Chrystal and Timmy could visit and for Timmy Guy to see his new brother. By the time I dropped my car off at Burger King ( which is where Ryan my youngest works) and came home I was tired. Timmy Guy has ADH. It is hard to get him settled down for the night and to go to sleep. At 11 pm he was still awake. Everybody else had gone to bed. I was so tired but Timmy Guy wanted Granny to lay with him on the couch...so I did and fell asleep. Mind you because of the ADH Timmy Guy has to have somekind of background noise or he will keep waking up. So the TV was on with a low volume. I must have layed during the night in a strange way for I woke up at 4 in the morning and my head was really hurting me terrible. I managed to crawl into my own bed...and then...the urge to visit the powder room wouldn't leave me alone....so up I got again to take care of that problem but my head hurt so much I had a problem getting to sleep again. Before I knew it, it was time to get up again and get Timmy Guy up and ready for school. I ended up waking up with a wicked headache...and it has been with me most of the day and making me feel sick to my stomach. This is something I don't need right now. I almost fell asleep on the couch this afternoon, but then I had to stay awake for I had to pick up Michelle ( my youngest daughter) from work and take Ryan to work so I could have the car this evening to take Timmy Guy back up to the hospital. I finally popped a couple tylenol so my headache would hopefully go away...but I think my main problem is I am so tired for being sick and then all the excitement. Things are a bit hectic. Tonight we are going to use our spare bed that we have. Should have thought of that last evening...maybe tonight I can get some much need rest. I just feel so tired...probably not fully recouperated from being sick either though...the cold is much better it is still there. Sigh....anyhow...that is what I have been up to. But my new grandson...is so precious. I got to hold him alot late this morning when my husband and myself went to visit this morning. Yes...I didn't feel good...but is really hard to get me to stop and lay down...and rest...sick or not....life is just too short in my opinion for a whole lot of sleeping, besides I hate naps...when I wake up I have that same groggy feeling I have when I get up in the morning and I don't like that kind of feeling...so no naps.

I am gonna see if I can get some pictures on here....so if I am sucessful...you will see Peyton Lee Turner. You can see in this picture. Chrystal has eyes only for Peyton. Below is a picture of Peyton and his Daddy. I love the way his bottom lip was sticking out...so cute!!







Here is a picture of me and Peyton. I know I look like an old hag here...but it is the cute guy that I am seen in the picture with that is important.






Isn't he the sweetest thing!!!!!!!!! Note his hat that he has on. You got it the Colts hat. LOL Someone...and I think it was my son Shawn said he looked like The Pope Peyton with that hat on. He has a whole Colt outfit that we got him at Chrystal's baby shower. The Colts outfit is going to be his going home outfit. ....Sigh.....I think I am in love again.....

Ta Da Ta Da Ta Da........Peyton is here!!!!! He was born this afternoon. I was there...but am not sure of the time. It was between 1pm and 2pm. He is so sweet and perfect looking. Peyton decided not to wait till Thursday for the C-Section. Chrystal started labor last evening and was C-Sectioned today. He was a big boy and well on his way to some future football team. Maybe the Colts huh???? He weighed 10lbs and 11 ounces. He was 21 inches long...with hair that some men wish they still had...LOL.
Well....I was going to show pictures but for some reason...I keep getting an error which they say will be fixed...so maybe tomorrow I can show pictures....sorry guys for not being able to show pictures of the newest and hotest babe around...LOL

Peyton should be born on January 12th. That is if he can hold off that long. I have been really concerned about my new grandchild. He is going to be one big baby. At this time they figure he is 10lbs. Timmy Guy was 8lbs. when he was born and ended up with a collapse lung from the trauma of coming down the birth canal. So...they are not taking any chances with this baby. Especially since he will be at least two pounds more in weight that Timmy guy was at birth. So Chrystal is having a C-section. I will still be worried and will have a sigh of relief when all is over and everything is good. So on January 12th....I should have an announcement and who knows...the first picture of my new grandchild will be posted....I am sure I will be one proud grandmother.
Now if I could just shake my nasty cold I will be all set. This cold has me practically in bed. I can't think too clearly...and I don't feel like doing anything either. But it should hopefully pass by the 12th of January.

I hope you all had a very nice Christmas and survived your New Year's Party. We had a quite night at home. We usually do not go out on New Years. We usually just buy a bottle of Champange, Chips and dips, pizza and this year we had shrimp. In the past it has been lobster...but not this year.
I had a nice Christmas. Santas were very good to me. I was happy with everything that Santa's graced me with. And we didn't have a white Christmas. The snow was pretty much gone on Christmas. The temperature got up to the 40s just before Christmas which melted the snow away.
I started this angel in bobbinlace right around Christmas. Finally got it off my pillow last evening. I have been sick with a nasty cold. So far I have spent the day on the couch sleeping on and off....
I hope you all have a very Nice and Happy New Year to come.
