A Finish!!



Finally, a finish from me!! Our not-so-little guy has been under the weather for the past couple of days, so I've had some un-exepected stitchig time open up!!! This little patriotic design will be "living" in our guest bath, which has a (you guessed it!) red, white and blue color scheme. I love the sentiment on this piece - "We live in the land of the free because of the brave" - so very true!!!!

We aren't expecting any company until Friday - so hopefully, the next few days will allow me to spend some extra time with my needle and floss!!

Ian and I finished reading "Trumpet of the Swan" this week. It's been so nice to go back through and read some of the books that I remember reading when I was young...hopefully, he'll have good reading memories to pass on to his children someday...

I'm off to make some more tea w/ honey and lemon for my littlest sweetie -

Have a wonderful week-end!!

So Much for More Blogging Time!! :)




As you've probably noticed - since my last post, where I boldly stated that "I would have more time to blog" - i haven't blogged a single entry!! :)
I just don't know how things get so busy around here sometimes...I haven't had much time for stitching or reading or....well, you get the idea.

We have been experiencing our annual flood of "unexepected company" again this summer. Again we ask - where did all these people come from?? Every summer, we find it so amusing that folks that never wanted to visit us before (when we lived "up north")- suddenly want to see "us" again. It can't possibly be that we now live on a beautiful beach, close to Disney, Universal, SeaWorld, etc...right??? :) We're still getting visitors only because of our dazzling prsonalities and loving hearts...ok, probably not! :)

I am REALLY hoping to log some more time for stitching - for a couple of reasons...the main one being that I tend to get a wee bit cranky if I don't have a daily chance to put needle to thread (needlework is such a stress-reliever for me - soothing to my soul - if you will) and the second is because I have a boat-load of Christmas gifts that I would love (NEED) to stitch. I'm afraid "Come and Share" is going to go sit on the back burner for a bit while I turn my focus towards getting some Christmas stitching done. I hate having another "unfinished project" (like say "Delicate Beauties") but I really need to "zone in" on my Christmas stash for a bit. I can hardly wait for this years JCS Ornament issue to arrive!!

Ah well - back to running our "Bed and Breakfast" ...As the saying goes - location, location, location!!! :)
