Stitching - what's that?

I'm sorry but I have not a single stitching photo to share. What little bit of stitching I did in the car on our way to Canada's Wonderland has to be redone.
Our youngest son and his family have been here for the week. Well, they went home yesterday. We had a wonderful time with them in spite of the rainy weather. They played on the beach, in the pool and in the lake as much as they could. We had lots of visitors stop by. We took the kids to Canada's Wonderland for a day. What a great time we had. Poppa and I are now exhausted and have been putting our house back in some kind of order.
Here are a few shots of the week.
Hunter and Jackson on the beach with Aunt Sue.

With Mommy on the Carousel at Wonderland.

Hunter at the beginning of the day. Notice he is on the dead run and continued that way for the entire 9 hours we were there. In the background, is DH, DS and DIL discussing where to go next.

And, at the end of the nine hours!!!!

Dani has nominated me for one of the awards that has been floating around lately. I do appreciate the award, but do not wish to nominate any particular blogs. Each and every one of the blogs that I read contribute to my love of stitching and life in general. To all of you, you deserve this award too!!!!

We are off tomorrow to our cottage in Northern Ontario until August 11th. Our cottage is very rustic and very remote. The cell phones work if you stand on a rock overlooking the lake, turn left, then right, cross your right leg over your left, jump up and down three times - in other words, sorta kinda. We do however, have satellite TV. Internet service will be at the local library - 15 miles into town. I will try and pop into town a couple of times a week to check email and to read blogs.

Until we return, enjoy those last days of summer and stitch happy!

My recent stitching progress can be measured in stitches rather than hours, too. Long live summer! LOL!

Hi Kathy,

Hope you have a wonderful time
at the cottage, and that the
weather is a bit more favourable.
It's certainly been a summer for
rain and storms, hasn't it?

Your little grandsons are so cute.
I do love the look on Hunter's
face as he's getting his hair cut
in that one picture. Very intense.

He's funny running all around
Wonderland all day long too, and
then crashing on the way home.
Bet the grownups felt the same
way too at days end.

Your various stitching projects
are looking great, even the ones
facing in odd directions. I do
love the Autumn Leaves one, in
any which way. Such lovely fall
colours. The lighthouse book
mark turned out great and looks
amazing on that blue fabric.

Hope everything is running
smoothly on the Mystery Sampler.
It's going to be gorgeous! Love
the rich, dark colours in it.

You've been busy with babysitting
and entertaining, so hope you
have a nice relaxing time at the
