It's Been a Very Long Time

So much has happened since I posted last.  First off, no, DH has not found another job as of yet.  He had an interview two weeks ago for one that would be perfect--full time middle school math tutor at a charter schools here in town.  It's just a few blocks from our house and would be just the job for him.  We've been anxiously waiting to hear something.


I have managed a little stitching since I posted last, but actually not very much, considering my last post was May 5 and today is June 25! 

Oakhaven Months SAL (I haven't done June yet)
Spring Sampler SAL - Page One Complete

Bittersweet Moon by Blackbird Designs
for Blackbird Designs Summer SAL

HAED Dragon Luck SK SAL
(I've made further progress since this
photo was taken)

TUSAL - 5/21/10
(More than a month late posting this!)
Also, I could have sworn I took
a mid-June photo of my TUSAL

I have one more start, but don't have a photo yet.  It's "Frugal Samplings" by Waxing Moon Designs. 
I'm doing 'Use It Up.'  It will look like this when it's finished: 

I've just made a smalls start on the top left border so far.


Our yard is full of beautiful blooms of all varieties.  I can't help myself, but I'm out snapping photos nearly every day!  So, I'll share some of them with you.

Bouquet of Roses from my Garden
that I brought to work last week:


A few of these next photos are late blooming tulips from our front yard.

I'll save photos of the vegetable garden for next time. 


I participated in a recent exchange on the ILCS Yahoo group.  You were supposed to stitch an ornament that representated summer to you for your partner in the exchange.  Here's the ornie I received from Emily:

Wonder how she knew how much I love flowers?  :)

To me, summertime always means watermelon, so here's the ornie I did for Emily:

A fun exchange.....


Several weeks ago, I received the cutest card and my very own thread picker from Lisa.  Isn't this frog adorable?!

I liked him so well, I ordered several from her.  They should be arriving soon...can't wait to see what she's come up with.

This entry has gone on and on and on, and I haven't even said anything about Mother's Day, our trip over Memorial Day, and so many other things.  Guess those will have to wait for another time.

I'm so close to 75 followers.  I've decided once I get to 75, I'll host another giveaway, so stay tuned.

Until next time,
Happy Stitching!
