July ORT Report and a Finish

Hello Friends...
Just a quickie post to let you know what I've been up to.

First -- the TUSAL report.

There are mostly threads in there from my most recent finish.

Ten Commandments by La-D-Da
R&R 32 ct. Creme Brulee`
1 thread over 2

I squeezed the year above my initials.  I changed every color called for only because I didn't have any of the recommended threads in my stash.  I tried to pick colors that closely matched though. I am very pleased with it.  

So what else have I been up to?
Well aren't you all so sweet...thank you for asking!

I made some pins
Yep, that's a watermelon.  It's been sitting on my counter for a while now.  I really should eat it. 

I grunged up some tags

And then I stamped them

I also watched the hummingbirds fight over the feeders

They are really entertaining to watch, and listen to!  They chatter and squeak to each other, especially when they are wanting the feeder all to themselves.  We have four feeders across the back of the house. 

That's it for today.  Masterchief is waiting for me to get done here so we can go in to town and get more boards for the deck. I am going along so I can run in to Walmart or a Dollar Store for some cheap safety pins.  I am going to try (again) to rust them. I've tried several times in the past but have been unsuccessful.  Myra has peaked my interest in it once again and maybe, just maybe I'll do it right this time!  

I am still thinking about what to offer for a giveaway here.  
Stay tuned!

It Took One Year....

Guess what? 

Guess what?

Guess what?

Can you tell I'm just a little bit excited?  

Let's start this way ----->

Remember this?

Jennifer started my ABCD chart on a journey to 17 stitchers.  
It made it to 14 of them and then I thought I had lost it forever. 
I had really given up all hope.

Well lookie here ----->

After ONE WHOLE YEAR it finally showed up in South Africa at Cucki's house!  

She has it all stitched up already as you can see and is now sending it on it's way to Mouse

I thought it was lost forever and now I am so excited that it will soon be right back where it started. 

I am so thankful to Jennifer for starting this chart on it's journey and to everyone who stitched it so far, who took the time to write a little something or include a picture in the journal.  

I can't wait to see it!!

~Happy Hugs
