A small update and gift received
Here we are with only 4 more days left to July, August will be here before we know it and with it many changes as the fall season is looming around the corner. I am looking forward to August getting here because it means before long the long hot summer that we have been having will be over with! Since my last update I have been stitching away and have a finish to share! My sons 13th birthday is coming up in less than 2 weeks, with that I have finished my yearly tradition. For the last 2 years I have been stitching James a ornament for his tree. It is not just any ornament though. He loves penguins so every ornament I have made for him is of a penguin. This design I got from a Donna Kooler book that I checked out of the library. I am having a bear of a time taking the picture to show it more clearly. I sewed in white beads in the back round to make it look like he was skating in the snow. The other day I also got a belated birthday gift in the mail from my friend Mylene! I love Lizzy Kate and this is so cute! Thanks so much Mylene! I have been busy around the house this week getting all the little things taken care of here before James bday party and sleepover on Saturday. There will be some of our friends over that day as well so I have been knocking myself out taking care of everything here. I hope to have a finish or 2 to share sometime next week, until then thanks for popping in and for your kind comments!
