Middle of July Already

Here I am again. Let's hope blogger doesn't mess up my post again.

Stitching wise, I finished Vierlanden Susanne / Wiehenburg. I really enjoyed this one, not sure why it went to the way side so long ago. But I is finished now.

I also pulled Papillon's Serendipity out again and moving along with that one. I should have another finish by the end of the month. It sure feels good to see some of these completed.

Wednesday was a good day, Duggy and I met for the day again. I always enjoy her company. We compared our stitching, caught up on family gossip and just visited with no men around. It felt good. We stopped at 99 for a late lunch as we usually do, and was in there for two hours. LOL  I thought they would eventually throw us out but I guess they know us by now as that is our usual stop. We had such a pleasant day, I was sad to see it end.

I made it home around 9 PM and was tired but pleasantly so. I did manage to stitch a little before I fell asleep in my chair.

Thank you again for stopping by, and have a wonderful day !!!

July Already !!!

Well, here it is another month that has gone buy. As I have said in the past -- time does fly !!
I had DH at the ER again a couple of weeks ago. He had a coughing fit and fractured a rib -- again !! He has done this in the past - quite a while ago but it happened again. He is doing better now but was in a great deal of pain for a while. We mostly stay home with the heat as it tends to bother him. We had a very quiet fourth of July. I took DH out to dinner on the 2nd as it was his birthday -- 72 years old. I teased him and called him "my little old man " LOL  he didn't see the humor. But even though he would never admit it, I know he enjoys the teasing.

As far a s stitching, I have tried to keep busy. WIP's have been my main focus as well as the stitching I needed to do for RR and exchanges. I did finish The Mighty Oak and now just need to decide how to frame it. Vierlanden Susanne by Wiehenburg resurfaced and I am proud to say that it only need one more medallion and it is finished also. The birth record that I started for my friends granddaughter is also finished and waiting to get framed. I window paned a stitched piece on a tote bag for my partner in the Summer Exchange for Needlecraft Haven and since she has received it I can post a picture, as well as the lovely little pillow that I received from my partner. Now I need to get busy on the next RR mailing, it is one of Margaret Sherry's Calendar Cats. I will post a pic when I have something to show. Here are the pictures --
