Finishes, RAK, and a Catch Up on the SAL

First up the finishes -
Summer Bird
Heart in Hand
Recommended floss
14 ct aida

Little House Needleworks
My color way
And I was blessed with great stitchy friends in the last couple of weeks! I had asked Gracie how to make her marking pins. Not only did she send directions but tons of beads. Enough to set the mind to working and off to the store I went. But, did I grab a pic of mine - no. lol

And Faye decided to give away a little something the other day. She went back through her comment area and saw I had left a number of comments about her finishing skills. If you've never been over to her blog - take the time. Her finishes are AMAZING! Anyway, she decided to send me a pattern from iStitch.

Thank you both for your friendship and generosity!

I caught up with Teresa on our SAL. Pheew! Thought there for a minute I wouldn't have the chance.

The ribbon did intimidate me at first. Now, I'm thinking this ribbon idea might be a great way to finish my LHN ornies. You know the ones --- the ones I have been putting off for months because I couldn't decide what to do with them!

Enjoying another vacation. Not one thing to complain about. Oh, I need longer days. I did something yesterday on my to do list (no, not the passports yet) I met another blogger buddy. We had a great lunch in Amish country. She and her husband are in the area for a few days. Since she's out of town and not at home - I'll wait to say who it was.

Oh the places we could have shopped. But we were good - did I mention her husband was along. lol What I found amazing meeting them both - they are the perfect ying and yang for each other. This blogging thing still leaves my mind in wonder. I met complete strangers yesterday and knew them at the same time. Ironic, I say.

Since the boy just left for a movie date and the man is not home yet - I hear the chair calling my name. Who am I to refuse?

Hope your day is wonderful!
