Hi one and all.
First, I want to say a big thank you to everyone who left a comment on my last post. I did not realize so many of you had watched my Noddy progress. I was astonished and oh so flattered by all your nice comments. It still seems strange not to have that piece in my stitching bag. It is washed and ironed and ready to be handed to the owner next week.
I took a break from large pieces this week and did a couple of small things that were in my bag.
First up, is a Pie Tart pincushion from BH&G Cross Stitch 1993 - it doesn't look like much now but will when I put it in a little tart tin with all the trimmings. There were a great many half and quarter stitches in this one.
Then I stitched a little gift that my BFF Beatrice had given me when I got home in the spring.
It is Lighthouse Boo Quilt from Hand Blessings Patterns on 28 count blue Jobelean.
I received word from Daniela from Finland that she has received my Round 14 Fair Squares. Daniela had her trusty bicycle stolen just before I received her name and so I stitched her this little bicyle in remembrance.
We are at our cottage in Northern Ontario and the weather has not co-operated. We have had a great deal of rain. We spent several days touring the area for a way to pass the time.
Here is a photo of DH with DS and his family at the Miner's Memorial in Kirkland Lake.
I am, of course, not in the photo cause I'm taking the picture. I tease my family that I am never on vacation with them cause I'm always behind the camera and not in front.
Here is photo of my little grandson Hunter picking wild blueberries. I just couldn't resist adding this one. He is just so cute!
This past holiday weekend we had a family get together at the cottage. There were trailers and tents everywhere in the yard. Some of my extensive family read my blog and so I have posted this photo for them here.
Here is most of the group with the exception of little Joey who did not want his photo taken and Jocelynne and Mark who left just before the photo.Check out my grandson, Jackson in the back making a face LOL! With a quartet of visitors plus the family we were 37 for the weekend. It was a fun time with lots of laughter. I am a big fan of family and to have us all together warmed my heart. I consider myself very lucky to have such family.
Till next time, please stay safe and dry. Oh, and a prayer for the end of all this rain and black skies would be nice.
Keep those needles flying!!!
