Grandpa's Little Helper and Monument Valley Progress
Last Saturday we had a family get together. My niece and her husband were here from OR so those that could be there were there. Of course Johnny, Ashton, and Addison were the 3 stars. Although Addison was only 5 weeks so she just was cute and had grown since I last saw her. The picture I am showing is of Johnny and his Grandpa, (my brother, Kevin). Johnny just loves his Grandpa so wherever Kevin was there was Johnny. In this picture Johnny is helping Kevin put the cooler away as we were closing up. By the way he had the cutest T shirt on that said "Ready or not Here I come. He was our social butterfly, going to all the pinicers at the park we were at especially if they had a child around his age. He kept us on our toes. We had a beautiful day. The storms did not come until after we left. Of course we saw by the clouds they were coming so we packed up in time.
Stitching wise I have made quite a bit of progress on Monument Valley. It's 3/4 of way done now and I really hope to have it done early next week. This is progress at 100 hours of stitching on it.
I also got RAK'd this past week Sue V from ESC sent me this off my wish list. I love it. She sent the pattern, the floss, and the material for it I can't wait to do it late fall or early winter.
It's been a busy week. I got to see Michelle again on Wed. Michelle and Kay came back to town on Wed. and stayed until Thurs. Then they went to Heather's and Friday Michelle flew back to OR to finish up her Internship. Later this summer her and Scott and their cat are moving to CO where both will work at Universities teaching Chemistry.
This past week we've had a lot of storms. We haven't had the floods in our county but all around us they did. Nothing compared to those in Iowa though. I was talking to a lady in church this morning who is visiting here from Iowa right where the floods are. She said where they are at they are okay but she can't try to go home before Thurs as she won't reach their home. My heart and prayers go out to those people it has to be devastating.
Well until next time Happy Stitching!
