I sit here and all I can think is, "Phew, that's done...now just to survive the wedding!" Yep, the shower is over and my life is back on track...for this week.
|Just before the Party|
I made her a copy of my recipe book and added a letter to her. She's beginning to read it here - she didn't make it and I read it aloud to all in attendance. hehe - made Courtney and a few others cry. She had a wonderful time and received several amazing gifts. The party was a resounding success in my book.

|Me and Angie|
You've heard me talk of going places with Angie - well, this would be the one of which I am speaking! We've been friends since I started work at UPS back in 1987. She's the best! Would you believe this is the first picture of us together ever? We both hate having our pictures taken and if she sees this - she'll kill me!
I completely missed the 1st and my update of the Fat Guys/Snow Belles.
And here's the overall progress. One more to go and this SAL is fini! The only problem I can foresee - where in the world am I going to hang this monster piece??
I have been stitching on the calendar. Still. Ever so slowly. But, I did manage to finish another set of 4.
You've seen Saturday and June before. The sixth isn't too different, but Dad's Day...well, you can see what I did for yourself! :) Currently, I am working on Thursday and am about half done. Crossing fingers that tomorrow will see progress.
See - I have to go to Cuyahoga Falls in the morning and I'll be driving in rush hour. Then sitting in a car dealership for a few hours. Seems my newest acquisition has a couple of dings on it and the dealership is fixing them. What did I get??
Yep, that's a Nissan Juke and I got it in that color. This thing is sporty and fun. And it still has less that 800 miles on it! Hubby decided that he wasn't going to have me driving back and forth to Kent State regularly (and Cleveland to the LNS) in my old car. You know sometimes you just have to give the guy a high five for his thinking!
I did go to Crafty Ewe a couple of weeks ago. Here's part of my new patterns.
(once again blogger rotates the pic)
Also found the latest L*K Santa - Santa '13. For some reason I fell for a couple of 4th of July patterns and some Christmas ones. These pillows just made me smile and the fob reminded my of the fob I stitched with Teresa a few years ago. Got a piece of fabric for the latest Marie Barber pattern in JCS. Can't find a picture of it on the web - it's the one with white pumpkins and hydrangeas.
Think I am heading to the stitching chair - it's blazing hot outside and I want to cozy into my chair and see what it feels like once again.
Hope today finds you smiling and happy! Tomorrow is hump day and as that camel on the commercial says, "Whoop - whoop!"
