An AOY Start
Thank you to everyone that has read my blog and to those who have left comments. Thank you so much they have meant a lot to me. It really surprises me how many have read my blog and how many have left comments. I'm humbled by it. I love to read other blogs and leave comments and I think oh their's is so much better than mine.
There are some great blogs out there. And I love seeing everyone's works. I tend to read blogs that show their work more then just written blogs. I also like seeing pictures of the families. I don't show many as my family has requested I don't. Addison's parents in particular would have words with me if I got caught showing pictures of her online. They don't trust the internet and I respect that. Johnny's parents are okay with an occassional picture of him.
I started this earlier this week and this is progress after 18 hours of stitching. So far it's an enjoyable stitch and going quite well. It's Me and My Dog by Faye Whitaker (All Our Yesterdays). They are so cute. I got this book and 3 others for a total of $12.99 through Crafters Club. I found pieces to do for Love Quilts in all 4 books so I don't have to start over on the challenge.
Tonight the Olympics begins! I can't wait. I know the ceremonies are just starting now in China but we won't get them until tonight. I'll be watching them. I can't wait for the swimming and diving and gymnastic events.
This weekend is Unity Festival. I usually stay away from it as it's quite loud but a lot of people enjoy it. It's a Festival of all Contemporary Christian Music. Some of the bands are too jazzy for me though. It's always the 2nd weekend of Aug. I guess.
It's beem a beautiful few days around here an occasional storm or two but not bad. Yesterday water spout were discovered over the Lake. Water spouts look like tornadoes and in the immediate area do some damage but fortunately no boaters, or swimmers were injured and no boats or other propery was damaged yesterday.
Well, until next time Happy Stitching!
