Great Nephews, Stitching and a New Hobby!

Hello all my dear stitching, crafting friends!  Hope you are all doing well!  I have been a bit busy with a little bit of sickly in the middle.  My sinus's have been giving me fits and we had company last weekend.  My sister-in-law, niece, 2 nephews, 2 niece-in-laws, and 2 great nephews came to visit and it was wonderful!  Had not seen them since April of last year and goodness, that is way to long to wait!  Remember Adam?  If you have been reading my blog for a while you will remember that I use to baby sit my great nephew, Adam.  He has grown up so much and he is so darn cute!  Look at this face, covered with chocolate from a doughnut. 
I have missed him so much and I guess he has missed us too because when it was time to leave he had a fit!  Made Aunt Cindy cry like a baby!!!  Then my other great nephew who was only a few months old when they moved has grown a lot too.  We did get to see him some in December when him and his mommy came to visit but it still felt like forever!  Look at that adorable face!
Now on to stitching . . . remember that pattern that I was asking if anyone happen to have the pattern too a while back . . . I found someone who had it on 123 Stitch forums.  So it is finally finished and I am so darn happy to finally have it complete and hung on the wall!  
I also finally got "Stealing Oats" by Brittercup Designs from someone on Facebook and got it all stitched up.  I love it so much!!  I got off on my counting at some point but I made do and made it work!  
Now on to a new hobby!  I have been wanting to learn to knit for some time now and every time I try to, I get so frustrated!  So I decided to try again and guess what . . . I got totally frustrated again!!!!  LOL  So I started looking into Loom Knitting and decided to give it a go and I love it!!!!!  I am working on a scarf right now and am just loving the way it is looking.  I actually just bought some of the cheapest yarn I could to start practicing with but am really happy with how it is looking!  I do wish I would not have made it so wide but it will keep a neck really warm that is for sure!  LOL
Well I guess that is about it for this time around.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! 

Oh and don't forget that the Counted Wishes Festival is coming up in March on the 15th - 20th!

Your G-nephews are adorable. Congrats on your finishes. I'd never have known your were off on the BK piece. It looks great.
