I finished and mailed the model and it's been received. Sending a model out is almsot like dropping a child off at college...by then you've done all you can but your sort of hold your breath. I'm always a little afraid the PO will lose the package but so far, so good.
My walking buddy is on vacation...so getting myself going (and walking the full distance) has been a struggle, especially because it's been so hot. So far, so good on that too. The ipod helps...a little.
I'm back to personal stitching. I finished a little DMC freebie called Island Stamp. It had numbers in the corner...like would be on a stamp but I left them out. I'm thinking of someday finishing it into a little pillow to display in a basket (with other future beach themed little pillows.)
I also started a beach themed wedding piece for a neice who had a beach wedding. I like the design but am not enjoying stitching it. I think rather than stitching on it constantly, I'll put it in rotation.
I also put in some more stitches on LHN Family Sampler. It's not a great pic because I was too lazy to take it off the scroll rods but you get the idea.
On the very day of our anniversary, I was looking at Jill Rensel's blog and found a sampler I just have to stitch....A Sweeter Love by Plum Street Samplers. It's on its way to me as we speak. Now to decide if I want to stitch it in silks or DMC conversion. (I'm leaning towards silks.)
I really have to stop looking at stitching blogs. I'm so week against the enabling. lol!
On the reading front....I'm on the second book of The Hunger Games trilogy and really enjoying it. I should make some time to find an online discussion groups about this series.
I hope everyone has a great week!
