Time - I need more time to stitch

Good Morning Everyone!
Another warm day today,
 but the corn is lovin it and is growing by leaps and bounds! Yaaaa for the farmers!!!!!

I have been working on 3 different projects since I last posted. 2 are ones that I have been working on and 1 is a new start. Really need to control myself when it comes to new starts and get some finishes in first. (that probably won't happen)

Here is my progress on The Upstairs Sewing Room



 
And here is my progress on July Word Play

Couldn't get it to turn the right direction but it's a good picture of my work!

My new start is a towel for my kitchen. I have a towel bar on my refrigerator and that is where I hang the towels that I stitch. Here is a picture of a few of my stitched towels. I have a couple for Valentines Day, St Patricks Day and one for Easter that I have put away.
I have quite a few Christmas ones but they are packed away with the Christmas stuff.
 
Well here is my new start -
I don't have any fall towels so when I saw this book at Hobby Lobby on Thursday I had to have it! We will see how many I get done! It feels funny stitching on the towels as most of them are 14 count and it has been a long time since I have used 14 ct. Its a lot easier on the eyes!
 
 
I am going to leave you with a couple pictures of my grand kids
 4th of July swimming pool party

My grandson and his dog Buddy

Well I am off to get my dishes and some never ending laundry done
Have  great weekend everyone!
Happy Stitching

Stitch - Stitch - Stitch

Good Morning Everyone!
 
I have a small problem, well not a real problem ,but I commented on a post and I don't remember if it was on Bloglovin, Instagram, or Facebook. The problem is I commented on this persons new start and I told her I had done it already and she wanted me to show her a picture of the finished piece.
Here it is! It hangs in my living room.
 
Home of a Needleworker by LHN
I did this one in May & June of 2013
and just love working on this piece
 
Now for some up dates
this is as of last night

Another Finish and something from the past

Good Morning Everyone!

In cleaning out my dad's stuff I found a framed picture that I painted in my early teens. I remember spending some time at the lake with my grandparents and my grandma gave me this project to work on. Do any of you remember Artex paints? Well I used them to paint this picture and it hung in my parents kitchen for many years and now I have it in my kitchen.

And I do have a finish to share today!
Cappuccino 
by Buttons & Beads Autumn Series - Mill Hill
14 ct Mill Hill Perforated Paper
Floss & beads included in kit
Started 3/18/15
Finished 6/16/15
I like the effect of the beads, but not sure I enjoy the beading process.
Here is a picture I took after I hung it in my Kitchen
My Coffee Wall 
I have one more cappuccino picture that needs to be framed to add to the wall.

I am going to close with some pictures that I have taken of my family
