June 2013 IHSW

This weekend was a little hectic and I didn't get as much stitching done as I would have liked, there was no Stitch & Bitch on Saturday but I went to a "thirty one" party and picked up a couple of great organizers for my craft room and Sunday was Father's Day.  My DD and maybe SIL came over to help wish DH a Happy Father's Day w/ dogs and burgers on the grill, Lime-a-ritas and "The Great and Powerful OZ" in 3D.  In between I got in a few stitches here and there.

I filled in more of her dress and am about ready to finish the fruit basket and start the lidded pot sitting at her side. I also was able to put in another whole letter and part of a third on "Needleworker".
These stitch up pretty fast and I am loving the colors.
I also want to share a couple of pics of AW80S, this is the 12th part, so I am half way there. At least with the stitching, I'll have to go back and add the beads.

This I worked on last week.  Thank you, thank you all for your wonderful comments I love them and I try to respond to everyone, some I can't because they are no-reply emails but I still love them all so keep coming to visit and commenting. Got to go now so I'll have more to share, got to make those little xxs.

What This Week Has Brought

I started Monday off by playing in a golf tournament, if you remember it was rainy Monday morning and dreary all day. Anyway it was a charity tournament for MAG (Mine Advisory Group) an international organization working to free the world of land mines. There were 103 golfers including several wounded warrior from our area. In spite of the yucky weather lots of money was raised for a worthy cause and fun was had by all.  Our team scored 3 over par which for a bunch of duffers isn't bad.
 On Tuesday I played another 9 holes of golf as if I didn't get enough punishment the day before and then Wednesday I paid for my two days of thinking I can be in the WPGA...NOT!  So I stayed in and stitched. Now that's something I know a little something about.
 This weekend is again a IHSW weekend and if you don't know what that is click here or
this button on the right>>>>
and join in the fun. The rest of the week has been spent stitching on "Africa" and I couldn't help myself I started another chart.  It is "Needleworker" by Little House Needleworks. I'm stitching on 32 ct Belfast Vintage Country Mocha with the recommended threads. So far this is as far as I have gotten
only one letter with several more to go.  I've joined a needle book exchange and I'll be looking for a chart for that so I will have plenty of stitchy thing to keep me busy this weekend.  Plus I made another trip to the library and have a new batch of audio books.  I want to welcome my new followers and thank you all for your wonderful comments.  So off I go to make some of those little xxs, see you next time.
