I think she did a great job.

Hello Stitching Friends!
I picked up four finishes from the framer yesterday. I'm pretty happy with them!
I should have waited until morning to take better pictures, but then it wouldn't have gotten done. I took the pictures with my iPad. So, didn't do any editing. Sorry.
The summer seems to be moving along quickly. Things have been extremely busy for me at work. I had a large project come up that had a short time frame, but I may be nearing the end of it soon. So, due to that, I have not had any ambition this week after getting home. My brain has been fried! Lol.
We travelled to Minnesota last weekend with our son and his fiancée to visit my sister and her family. We had a great time as always. So nice to get away! I may have a new stitcher in the family... I taught our son's fiancé how to cross stitch last weekend. We stopped in LaCrosse, Wisconsin on our drive North to visit Crosse Stitchery. Well, while browsing, she expressed great interest in some charts, so we picked out a couple of easy ones, and got her started. She caught on pretty quick. In fact when they came to visit today, she brought her stitching along so she could stitch with me! She had made good progress, so I supplied her with fabric and floss to go along with her next project. She seemed pretty happy about it!
I have been stitching on Liberty House.
It took forever to get the big red house stitched it seemed! I am working on the eagle in the tree right now. Hopefully I will have it done before too long.
These three new charts made their way home with me. I do love patriotic pieces....maybe because my birthday is near the fourth....
The weather has been warm and very humid of late. We are also still getting rain showers every few days. I swear you can practically see the corn grow in the fields! That's one thing that Illinois can do well....grow corn!
We did manage to get the deck stained two weekends ago. Harry also got to the groomers for his short 'summer do'.

Hello Stitchy friends.
I can't believe it's been over two weeks since I posted. Father's Day will be here soon.
I have been busy at work and at home. The staff at the library has been busy getting ready for the start of the summer reading program. I have been busy with reports, and such, preparing for the end of another fiscal year.
I have been spending leisure time stitching and reading. I just finished The Hurricane Sisters by Dorothea Benton Frank. I loved it! But then I think I have said that about all of her books... I tend to mainly read mysteries or suspense with the exception of a group of favorite authors. If you haven't ever read a book by Dorothea, give one a try this summer.
I finished summer sampler by LHN.
Then this afternoon I decided on my next start.
It's a rainy Saturday here. I am just waiting on the last load of clothes in the dryer. Mike is at work and I'm surrounded by sleepy cats and the sleeping dog. So, I should have time to stitch on this some more today.. Then it will be time to begin a new book. There is always at least two or three on my bookcase waiting their turn. I mean, I can't be without a book, right!?
Supper is going to be simple and no fuss. Probably a salad and a weight watcher entree. Sounds exciting...
Hope all of you are well, and enjoying a weekend doing what you love best!
