It's been hotter than normal here, so we have mostly been trying to stay cool this past week!
My daughter's friends held a baby shower for her on Sunday. It was fun and she received some really nice gifts...many were handmade and very original, and lots of stuff she can use. The baby will be here before we know it and everyone is very excited.
Sunday was also the annual picnic for my husband's company. They raffle off lots of stuff, and he won a Magellan navigator for the car. It is really cool! We've named her Susie.
I have a couple of finishes to share from this week. I finally finished my piece for the last round of our latest round robin. It is Diane Graebner's "Catch A Tail" from the cats & quilts series. There are supposed to be little tassles on the quilts but I thought they looked a little weird so I left them off. Two of the six people in this robin chose the same designs so I got to stitch 2 of this series.
I also finished my July ornament for the JCS ornie SAL . It is "The Santa in the Moon" from Twisted Oaks Designs. I can't remember which issue it was in...maybe last year's? I'll have to check. Anyway, I finished it as a pinkeep that can also hang on the tree.
Thanks to everyone who has come to read my blog. I especially am grateful to all of you who take the time to write comments. Thanks so much!


  1. I really like the Diane Graebner designs. I have had a couple in my stash pile for many years (someone gave them to me as gifts, I think). At the time, I had two black cats. Yours is gorgeous, Lynda. How's that other one I gave you going?

  2. Ooooh those cats are adorable!!!!!

  3. Love the cats and quilts piece. Very nice finishes Lynda! Stop by my blog, I awarded you the Kreativ Blogger Award! : )
