Happy Friday Friends!
I know, for me it seems like it was just a very short time ago that it was April 1st and it was my first day of work in New Jersey and now I'm saying I can't wait for June. You see, I totally missed IHSW and TUSAL for March, April and May! Now that I am home again I hope to settle in to a somewhat "normal" schedule of sitting in my big girl chair, stitching away to my little hearts delight.
I managed to stitch a little bit in March while Masterchief worked a small job in Northern Jersey before we both started work at the Nuke plant.
Here is proof of that....
I snapped this one quick at the hotel before we packed up for South Jersey. I think these ORTs were from the Saxon Sampler. I have only to add our name to that and it's all done. I even picked up a frame for it while I was in close proximity to The Strawberry Sampler. Once again, the girls there helped me choose the perfect frame...
I can't wait to get it finished and framed!
Here is what I've been trying to finish in the last couple days...
I chose different colors than what was suggested...probably because I didn't have what I needed at the time. That is usually why I use different threads.
Masterchief has been working on our deck since we arrived home.
Our original deck was VERY small, just big enough for a couple chairs. Soon it will stretch down the back of the house and around the corner! Do you see where the spouting is on the house? That's where the addition begins. We added on to the end.
My Knockout Roses have really gotten big even though I cut them way back before we left in March.
We planted them at the same time but one is bigger.
I see I have gained a couple new followers. SO glad to see you here!!
I think I am finished with unpacking and organizing for now. That took longer than I thought it would.
Now to relax........
That's it for today. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks so much for your sweet comments. Each one brings a smile! I appreciate them so much.
