Happy July!

Welcome to July!  Can you believe the year is half over?  It sure has flown for me.  I really should blog more often, but life just keeps getting in the way.  I recently attended the Boy's of the Sun Tour (Kenny Chesney & Tim McGraw) with two cousins and a friend.  That was fun. They really put on a good show. 

I've managed to complete my By The Bay SAL.  Donna has some other great designs.  Check them out here.

Even managed to stick it in a frame I already had.  Though I plan to find a better one center it also.  Just wanted to enjoy it ASAP!  :D


I've started a new SAL  "25 days of Christmas" designed by my friend Sunshine.  The month is still early check out her blog here and give it a whirl.  She also has some just released designs so look for those as well!  Here's a look at my first 3 days....



Shelley is having a Brittercup Design giveaway on her blog.  I've entered to win. Check it out here.  Give away is July 6th so hurry!


I've got more stitching to do and I've started reading a new novel so off I go again.  Will be celebrating the 4th with family on the 7th at the Lake.  Hope you all have a safe and Happy 4th of July--when ever you Celebrate!  =)
