Very busy week last week. I got the beading done on the last section I finished stitching.
On Wednesday Hubby got a new bike to replace the old one. I love the new one! It's very comfortable to sit on & very pretty!

On Saturday we took friends out on the pontoon boat. It was a blast. We cruised around the lake for a little bit. Anchored & let the kids swim for a little bit. Grilled some hot dogs for lunch while the kids were swimming. Then we went on a couple of laps around the speed lane.

On Sunday we went to my older sister's house for (ready for it?) Ang & Dad's going away party; Ang, Paul, Dad & Guy's birthday party. We had a corn hole tournament & Hubby & I took second place!

Over the weekend was the PR sal. I worked some more on Winter Fairy Spirit for the sal. With how busy we were this weekend I didn't get as much stitching done as I was hoping but I did get a few good hours in on Monday.

It was a nice week & weekend. (Some high & low spots) Didn't really do much during the week. Just the usual cleaning. I did get some nice stitching time in. On Friday we went to the Aeros game with grandpa. Both kids brought a friend with them. We all had a lot of fun. They had a fireworks display afterwards that was fantastic!

I finished the top part of the dress. The section is now ready for me to start beading.

It has been a long time since I posted last. Recovery is going well, but a bit longer then I was expecting. Since the last time I posted Maria got her 5 year trophy for dance. Both kids finished the school year with Honor Roll. We had 2 of our 3 summer camping trips. 2 weeks ago Hubby got re-ended by a pick-up truck while he was on his bike. He has just left work to meet us at Little Paul's baseball game. Luckily he only had a bruise on his knee but the bike is totaled. Just found out today that my Dad is going to have to move to IN by Aug 2nd. The local Chrysler plant that he has been working at for over 20 years is closing. He'll work at a plant in Indiana for at least 3 years until he reaches the retirement that he wants.

Now, onto stitching. Finally got some really good stitching in this last weekend. I finished one color done on the page I'm working on for Stargazer. I'm hoping to finish the whole page by the end of the month.


I also started PR's Mermaid Freebie while we were camping at Salt Fork. Because of the heat we spent a lot more time out on the boat & I didn't stitch as much as I was hoping too. However I wanted to share my start. I choose to start her on SW Mystic Meadow 28ct linen. I'm using Weeks Dye "Peacock" as the floss.
