And life moves on!

Life has a way of ruling our lives and this past week has been a long one for me. My last post was on a Saturday (7/28/12) and on Sunday we started moving our middle daughter home from Iowa. It was a hard thing for her to do but she knows in the long run it's for the best. It breaks a mothers heart to see there child's heart hurting from a break up, but time will heal her.
Friday night some friends of ours came over and we were sitting in our new shop talking and having a few beers when this big bad storm roll through, the clouds were very dark and lightning everywhere. but the best part was we got a good shot of rain that we desperately needed. Now I think I am going to have mow the lawn again because everything is turning green once again.
This past Saturday (8/4/12) my DH had a truck pull in one of the local towns but I decided to stay home and have some me time. I sat and watch the whole first season of True Blood (this is what I get for having my DD back living with us, she has movies that I have not seen). I also stitched while watching the TV. So do you want to see what I stitched on?

Yuletide Linens from Christmas Quickie Leisure Arts Book
Designer Deborah Lambein
Completed 8/4/12
14 ct cream & lace fingertip towel
I have not worked on 14 count fabric in a long time, it was a great change of pace for me.

The next piece that I will show you is for my niece, Chrissy, her baby is due in the middle of August. So I started this cross stitch picture keepsake for the new little one.
Bear Photo Frame
From Sweet Baby Memories by Leisure Arts
32ct oyster linen & called for DMC floss
Started on 7/18/12
I have more done on it since I took this picture a couple of days ago.

this is what is will look like when
I also plan to change a few colors to make the pink stand out for her little girl.

Well I was too the dentist today and had a tooth pulled and a bridge put in. And the stuff that he gave me is wearing off so I think its time for a pain pill and a nap.

I hope everyone is having a great week!
Happy Stitching

Thanks for all the great comments and too all my new followers!!!!

That's a beautiful towel for the holidays! I also watched the first season of True Blood in one weekend when my son came to visit and brought the DVDs. So much better than waiting a week between episodes!
