My mom can't come to the blog right now. She's sitting in the corner rocking back and forth with big fat sweaty tears rolling down her chubby cheeks. I can't understand a word she's saying, but it sounds something like "They LIKE me. They really really LIKE me." And then she bursts into fits of boo hoos that make me want to go get a hammer.

Thank you, friends, for such lovely birthday wishes for Mo-ther. I know that she appreciates them down to the tips of her pink toes and that she would kiss you all twice for making her feel so very special. You all just ROCK!

Here's the view from the Happy Chair today.
Mom's making progress on the Love canvas from Sew Much Fun. Isn't it kinda' cool?

Wherever you are, I hope it's where you want to be.

With love from your pal,

P.S. I'm on Prednisone now, so my allergies are much better, but it has put me in a rather surly mood:


  1. Beautiful progress on your piece! It's making me want to pick up a "learner's kit", LOL!

  2. Beautiful work.

    And I am so sorry I missed it.

    Happy, happy Birthday (a little late) May your year ahead be filled with love, laughter and lots of wonderful stitching.

    Oh and one more wish for you. May Stewey stop watering the drapery.


  3. A belated happy birthday to you, Coni, and to Aunt Chrissy, too! Tell Stewey to cut you some slack :-)

  4. Of course we love you, Coni and Stewey. When you don't blog, it leaves a big hole in my day.

  5. Prednisone? Does your mo-ther know that will make you pee more? Her poor drapes!

  6. No more tears Coni, of course we LIKE you! You are often the biggest smile of my day. I'm glad to hear Stewy is feeling better...if a bit surly.

  7. That would be the best birthday treat of all - for you to stop peeing on the d--- drapes, Stewey!

  8. What is not to like about Coni and little Stewey. Happy B-day and many more to come, even if this is belated. I hope Stewey feels better soon, and his attitude improves.

  9. It seems I am late in wishing you happy birthday!!!! Love the LOVE canvas. And Stewey, I feel your pain with allergies. Ugh. I take Allegra though and it works great. Hope you are feeling not so surly soon!

  10. Love the canvas piece!
    And of course we "like you" - in fact we LOVE you!

  11. Poor dog. Prednisone makes me nuts. It is nuts when you are up at 3 a.m. cleaning house, right?

    Hope you feel better soon. And give your mo-ther a birthday hug straight from CH.


  12. Hope you had a wonderful day Coni, full of fun. One of my furry children is on prednisolone and she's hungry all the time, but it has really helped. Stewey this drug does not make her grumpy. Are you having attitude issues?

  13. Sorry I missed your birthday...Happy Belated Birthday! I hope you had a great day and got stitchy presents.

    My Reggie is on his 6th day of Temeril-P, which is an Antihistamine with Prednisone. Wow, is he hungry and thirsty! I hate the fact that he has to pee all the time, which results in waking me up during the night :< It has helped with the allergies, though, but I wonder what will happen when he finishes the medication?

    Hope Stewey feels better soon and I love your new project! Looks like a fun stitch.

  14. Stewey, wish your mo-ther and Aunt Chrissie both a very happy belated birthday from me!

  15. Poor Stewey! I just hate, hate, hate to take Prednisone because it makes me hyper and I actually walk the rooms all night long. I would rather suffer with allergies than take that again. Here is hoping you are much better soon, Stewey and a belated Happy Birthday to mo-ther.

  16. Darn allergies, anyways! Stewey, hope you are feeling better real soon.

    And please tell your mother and Aust Chrissie that I'm sending Happy Birthday wishes their way. (I know it's late but the wishes are sincere none the less.)

    Thanks for sharing your Mum-sie's progress on Love. It's going to be another awesome finish!

  17. Going on vacation means I missed all kinds of stitching news!

    Happy Belated Birthday ;)

    The love canvas is beautiful.
