The weather here has been hot and humid. We have had to use the A/C for the last several days because of DH's breathing. It is supposed to cool off tonight and stay cool for the next couple of days thankfully. At least that will give the ol' A/C a break.
I have been doing odds and ends around here and trying to keep up with the hated housework and laundry. Why oh why do we have to eat and wear clothes ??? it would save so much time and energy, not to mention money, if we could do without both. I know, my cheese is slipping off my cracker. LOL

I also finished a Mini Quaker Sampler from the German Marquoir Group. It was fun to stitch and I am quite pleased with the colors that I choose. I wasn't sure at first but I like the look of the finish.This next piece is also from the Marquoir group and has only one more section and it will be complete also.
In Friday's mail I received my stitched card from Lynn as part of the Stitched Friendship Exchange through Jayne's Attic Forum. Her stitching is so lovely and I also received a nice chatty letter telling me about herself. Definitely a fun exchange.

I also finished my part in a RR for Jayne's Attic. I just love the butterflies. here is my part and the whole RR piece. I think she said the designs were from UK's Crazy for Cross Stitch. I just love the colorsThis piece is the Lavender Morning by Chatelaine from the October, 2006 issue of Gift of Stitching magazine. I finally managed to put the beads on it and now all I have to do is frame it. I changed some of the bead and floss colors. So I guess you could say I made it my own.
This last one was a fun one. "Whatever !!!" is my answer to everything, it drives my DH mad. LOL He kind of growled at me when he saw what I was stitching. I told him I was going to hang right in front of his eyes so he would never forget it. I won't repeat his comment. ROFLMBO !!!
