Nearly July...!

Hello Stitchy Friends!

I can't believe it's nearly July!  I've been very neglectful at getting anything posted on my blog! I procrastinate... I tell myself as soon as I get some photos taken I will post.  Well I do have a few photos of recent finishes to share!

I just finished sewing the finish for Old Glory!  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  I found the navy fabric in my stash with the fireworks. Then also found the red to go with it.  

Then I went to my LNS yesterday to pick up my two recent framed finishes.
The first one is Stitch Every Day by Hands On Design.  I purchased this chart in Bloomington at The Counted Needle.  The second piece is Robin's Song by Little House Needleworks.  I stitched both pieces earlier this year.  I haven't decided where I'm going to hang them yet.  I may have to do some rearranging.  

I'm currently stitching Cherry Hill Farm by With Thy Needle and thread.

I have the border of letters finished and now starting to work on the inner design.  

I have two recent purchases that are waiting for me...
Our future DIL, Lauren, picked this out for their wedding stitching.  I need to start this soon. Their wedding will be mid-September. 

Then, Holly picked this chart out 

I asked her if she wanted a piece stitched with Addison's birth this is what she chose.

We have had so many rainy days here the last couple of months!  It's hard to keep up with getting the yard mowed between thunderstorms.  

The flowers are doing well on the deck. 

Summer is indeed upon us rainy or otherwise.  It's not so much fun to sit outside tho, the rain has produced a prolific crop of mosquitoes!  

I can't finish my blog update without sharing a picture of Addison.  She is two months old today.
We stopped over to their house this morning for some cuddle time.  Mike and I are certainly enjoying being grandparents to this little cutie!  

Happy stitching friends!
