Summertime summertime....

Hello all.  I am sorry it's been so long since my last post.  I'm a bad blogger.  I have been reading your blogs from time to time, but haven't had the time to do a post.

I have been reading and stitching tho.  I just finished the newest Janet Evanovich book the other day.  Her books are always good for a laugh.  If you haven't read them, you're in for a treat.  I enjoyed the latest Dorothea Benton Frank book, Folly Beach before that.  I have now just started Nancy Thayer's new one, Heat Wave. 

I am still stitching on the Carriage House Sampler piece; "Americana".  I have really enjoyed this bit of stitching.  I'm not sure what I will start next... I haven't decided.  Maybe "Summer" by Cricket Collection...  It's not like I don't have anything to choose from. ha!

My neice, Barbara from California is here visiting in Illinois for awhile.  We have been having fun catching up.  We had a movie night the other night. We saw "Bad Teacher".  It was fun.  After viewing the previews we decided there were a few more upcoming movies we would try to catch while she was back here.  Barb is also a stitcher.  So, we get together and stitch while she's here also.  Even though Barb is my neice, she is older than I am, due to her Mom being my much older half sister.  So, we share many common interests.  We always have fun together.

I was going to share some photos on this post, but my DH has installed lightroom software for his photo editing, and my camera pics have gone into that program after I uploaded them, and I've tried to import them from there, but not having much luck this morning with that....  Guess I'm going to have to have some help.  So, I apologize for not sharing updated photos of the stitching in progress.

I will share a picture of Joplin climbing the tree in the backyard.  This is her first summer and she is loving the outdoors.  So many birds to watch....

Happy stitching!

    I am glad to hear that Folly Beach was good. I loved Plantation and Sullivan's Island but haven't enjoyed her last few books.

    Have a great weekend!
