I only stitch on days that end in "y".

Plugging away....

I'm still plugging away on LHN Family Sampler.  I have most of most of the bands finished except for a few little touch-ups (one more band to go).  Then I have most of the border to tackle.  I'm enjoying this project but will be glad to finish and move onto something else.

I felt the need to have a finish AND was in a patriotic stitching mood so I stitched up this little beauty (a freebie at the Janlynne website) designed by Sandra Cozzolino:

 A quick little mom brag....DS received his AP scores this past week and scored 5's on both of them.  Yay, T!

Also, our baby barnswallows reached a milestone this week;  they've taken flight!  They still return to the nest in the evenings and mama and papa are still feeding them.

Tomorrow I'm meeting with some stitchy friends for a little get-together.  For some reason, the food always has a theme.  This time the theme is the beach.  I'm bringing a watermelon carved like a shark (as seen on Pinterest) and filled with watermelon and gummy fish.  I also had the idea of taking some goldfish crackers, serving them from a plain fishbowl.  I thought it was a brilliant and easy plan.  You'd think it would be easy to find a plain old fishbowl in the pet dept. of Wally's World but noooooooooo.  Hopefully I'll find one somewhere else without too much trouble.

I hope everyone has a fantastic week!

I am loving watching your progress on your Family Sampler Rita. It looks great! I'll have to go print out the freebie from Janlynn, it's a cute one!

Have fun with your stitching friends!

I like your idea of the fish crackers in a fish bowl. Hope you can find a bowl :)
