Simple Joys Finished!

I got "Simple Joys" finished up today. It was such a fun stitch. I needed a smaller project to feel some sort of accomplishment. I have had so many big starts this year that I've barely finished anything!

Long Time No Post!

Sorry I've been MIA! I wasn't feeling too well last week. I caught some kind of virus that made me so tired. I'm finally getting over it, but still coughing a little. Now Matthew has gotten it. He was up in the middle of night coughing like crazy, the poor guy (and poor me because he kept me up)! LOL! :)

I did get some stitching done...

I worked on Shores a lot last week. I got the big whale stitched in block 11 and then I worked on the water around the whale.

I also got Simple Joys back out. It's coming along, slowly, but surely. Amy finished her sampler last week. I saw it in person on Saturday - It looks great!

Simple Joys as of 6/8/10

Speaking of Amy, while I was there we decided to do a round robin with Karen and Faye. Only instead of stitching it on one piece of fabric we are going to use individual pieces - sort of like our own Fair and Square exchange. We are going to be using designs from The Prairie Schooler Patterns "Friends" and "More Friends." Amy, Faye and Karen chose 32 ct. Vintage Buttercream for their fabric and I chose 32 ct. Vintage Light Examplar for mine.

It should be a fun project and it will be nice to have a stitched piece from each of them.

Well, the kids are out of school now. Bradley's birthday is tomorrow - he's going to be 10! I just can't believe it. It seems like just yesterday I was holding him in my arms. We're planning on going to Florida soon. They are going to be spending time with my mom while I come back here and relax. I'm sure I won't know what to do with myself!! :) Write soon - hopefully with a finish!
