a TUSAL and a finish!

The sun is shining now, but you never would have thought so earlier this morning! We have been blessed with a beautiful summer...until this week. The skies opened up and the most torrential rains just poured down on us. I slept through a thunder and lightening storm the other night. Thunder and lightning are not all that common here. Anyway, it looks like things have cleared least for the time being!

Another month has passed and that means another TUSAL post. Most (if not all) of these threads are from the finish below. My stitching time has been pretty limited these past months. Things just seem to keep happening and my mind can't seem to focus. So here is my little bowl of orts for the month:

And this is the piece I have been working on for the past couple of weeks. It is a Christening gift for my niece and her precious baby girl. The pattern is called Sweet Sweet Babe from Sam Sarah Designs. It is stitched on a French Vanilla lugana from Sassy's Fabrics, using the called for Weeks and Gentle Arts threads (except for one which I didn't have...and since I was in a rush I replaced it with something from Crescent Colours!) I hope she will like it!

We are off on vacation starting tonight. Hubby and I are going for pedicures this evening and then on Sunday we are flying to Hawaii for a week! I can't wait! There is a lot of stuff happening in our family right now, but we both need to just get away and this will be the perfect escape. I already found a stitching shop that I am hoping to get to, and I plan on bringing some stitching and reading as well. Sun, sand, warm breezes...just what the doctor ordered for this tired couple!

Thanks for visiting...I know I have been neglecting my blog lately, but hopefully things will get better soon! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
