OMGosh where does the time go? On my last post I wished everyone a Happy Easter. I must have gotten lost on my egg hunt. Well not really. Now it is July. I have been busy like everyone else. Let me share with you a bit of what was going on in my little corner of the world.

First, I had a birthday. I was not to excited about being another year older but I received a beautiful cross stitched picture that I have wanted for a very long time. I believe that it is a La De Da pattern. I love it. Thanks Karrie.

I have had several pedi's and have enjoyed every one of them.

I have taken care of my roses.

I have planted my flowers.
Christmas is not sneaking up on me this year. I have been working away on my gifts. I can't show you the front side yet as I have some very nosey friends!! I am kidding guys. I am still not showing the front!

I have been working away on my BOM's. I have even started two more. I will show you those later. This one is from the in CA. I love this one. Pieces are all done in wool and it will fit, when finished in a 18x24" ready made frame.

This one I joined at last year when I was in WI for Boxwood and Berries.

I am way behind as usual. This is the second block. I have the third one started, but I am still waaaaay behind.

Some stitching with friends.

Eating and catching up with them too.

I went to a quilt show. What fun. Beautiful quilts and great vendors. More to follow soon.

This is some progress on a BBD cross stitch I started last year. Since I took this picture I have made even more progress. As you can see I have been busy. This has been the first week that schools here have been out so I also have my two grandchildren home all day. Heaven help me, it is going to be a long summer! I have been working on this picture sitting on the deck watching my grandchildren in the pool.

Our weather has been on the wet, windy, cloudy and chilly side here. This weekend, all four days, is going to be in the 90's. No happy medium here. I will be back soon with some shopping pictures. Till then...
Hugs and Stitches,

Great to hear from you Pat. We've been having the same weather here and starting tomorrow, I think summer is finally going to hit us with a vengeance.

What a lovely birthday gift! It's gorgeous. Sounds and looks like you've been busy. It goes without saying that I love what you're working on. Wool...sigh.
