finally.......

It's been a month of no posting, and way longer than that of no stitching...but I think I am finally getting back in the groove!

Everything has been so busy...life is just flying by and I feel like I am on a merry-go-round. Our daughter's wedding is just three weeks away...so hard to believe! I was back in Boston a couple of weeks ago for her bridal shower...and yes...we did find a dress for me...thank goodness! It is short, so hopefully I can find flats or low heels to wear...I do not fare well with high heels at all! We had a great weekend, but all too short. I was very proud of myself for going alone though...I am really not much of a traveler!

Thank goodness for the Friendly Stitchers' Round Robin group! It was decided that the time was right for our next robin, so I had to sit down and get my piece started! I got the border stitched and sent it on it's way. This time I chose Plum Street Samplers' Halloween Hornbook Sampler. I am looking forward to this round. Everyone always chooses such wonderful pieces for us all to stitch on.

I also realized that I had a block to stitch for our Stitchers' Timeout block exchange, so I am working on a small patriotic block. It might even be finished by tomorrow so I can post a pic along with my TUSAL report. I was afraid my orts bowl would be empty this month, but there will be something to show after all!

I did have a piece picked out to stitch for my daughter for her wedding Actually she picked it out when she was here last summer. But, guess what? Well, probably no surprise....but I can't find it anywhere! It is a fairly simple design, and I could probably finish it in time for the wedding...if I could just find it. Why do I always put things in "safe" places and then forget where they are?????

So it's back to work I go...lots of summer reading stuff to get together before June 1st!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit! Once the next few weeks are over, I think I'll be more relaxed and able to post more often! Hope everyone reading is having a wonderful day!
