Catching Up

Happy Saturday to you, time for me to catch up...I may have to work backwords and attempt to remember everything going on for the past 2 weeks. 

We just got back from a preseason high school soccer tournament, we played 3 games in a row, with no pouring rain...lost 2, won 1, and 2 more games tomorrow, but Ashley works tomorrow so she will miss it.  Tryouts are end of next week so this is good practice.

I  picked up 2 pieces yesterday, first one is the doily Cucki made me for my  birthday, I had it framed as I don't think I could bring myself to use it so I will hang in up and enjoy its beauty.

The second is LHN, Two Yellow Houses, I love everything LHN and always buying more and more then I will ever complete in my lifetime, but I will give it my best shot.

LHN- Two Yellow Houses
32 ct Belfast Linen- Amber
I ordered a Bee's Gathering from Threadwork Primitives on Etsy and that arrived on Thursday, so while I picked up my pieces, I purchased the linen for this 3rd part.  I haven't finished A Bee's Bounty, more than halfway completed, just haven't sat down long enough to work on it or anything else.

JJ's Collectables is having a Christmas in July sale, everything is 20% off, and yes (hanging head in shame) I ordered more stash....we all understand this addiction. 
As well as A Bee's Study from Kathy Barrick on Etsy. 

I also got a new phone, I gave up my Iphone, which has given me years of faithful yet frustrating service, I switched to the Samsung 4s and have to admit, it's pretty awesome.  I have so much to learn. 

Ashley and I went to the Cincinnati zoo on Thursday and had a wonderful time, only took us 3 years to get there.  For it being in a large downtown area, they did a wonderful job making you forget about the city and enjoy the outdoors with the animals. 

Well, I am going to take advantage of some quiet time and go stitch.  Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
Hugs and stitches
