Teddy Happy Dance & PhotoHunt

We all reach a time in our lives when our friends start having babies.  In the last few months two of my close friends have had their first children.  I'm stitching up this quick, cute little JBW design twice and framing them as little baby samplers.  Here's the first of two, this one for a girl!

French Country - Teddy Bear
c2011 JBW Designs
Stitched on : 28ct Light Mauve Quaker
Stitched with: DMC B5200

I'm almost caught up with PhotoHunts for 2011, soon I'll move back in time to the themes from 2010 and then I'll be 100% up to date!  The them on July 9th was "near".

This photo was from my Dominican Experience in February of this year.  One of our days was spent in the mountains of Hato Mayor where we learnt about cocoa plants and how they're cultivated.  We were introduced to Mondesto a cocoa tree farmer.  He wanted us to all come in closely, once we were near he wanted us to see his hand, where earlier that day he drew a picture of Jesus in pen.  He said he loved Jesus so much he was inspired to draw his likeness on his hand that morning.  Mondesto was quite a character and it was obvious he took joy in our visit and sharing his knowledge with us.

Stay tuned for my next blog entry... its the long awaited ort box tutorial!
