With October just around the corner and being Breast Cancer Awareness month, this week's newest set is great to show "Some Support" for those you care about who have survived or are fighting breast cancer.
The lingerie designs would also look cute on PJ's or a lingerie bag, not to mention you could stitch the design of your choice on card stock for a romantic & unique anniversary or Valentine's Card for your sweetheart. Great for a lingerie party or personal bridal shower too!

Stella & Gus Tidbits 02

Where has the summer gone? It's hard to believe that schools have started and Labor Day is upon us! My trees are even beginning to show signs that Fall is just around the corner. Of course with the cooler nights we've had and the little bit of rain our monsoon season has brought, my flowers are blooming like crazy and the hummingbirds are having a field day with them!

Gus and Stella are back again and are up to their usual old selves. Stella is most definitely going to make herself heard and just when Gus thinks he has women figured out, he wakes up from his dream! LOL, my hubby liked this one so well, it's now his Facebook profile photo. Bless his heart, at least he admits that after being together for over 30 years, he still hasn't quite figured me out!
