Another beautiful weekend!

Wow, the weather this past weekend was just wonderful. I was able to enjoy a lot of time outside. My daughter was in a 5K run Saturday morning and finished 4th in the under 15 age group. I am so very proud of her. She did a great job. She beat her previous time by 4 minutes. It was a great thrill for me to watch her cross the finish line.

After spending much of Saturday outside and Sunday doing housework, I did not get much stitching done. Hopefully, I can get some stitches in this week before the withdrawal symptoms really kick in. (Ha Ha)

Happy late Mother's Day!

    I hope all you moms out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. Mine was great! My family did all the meals and most (not all - I helped a little) of the cleaning. It was a great day. I was able to watch what I wanted on television while sitting on the couch and stitching :)
    Today....not so great. My son woke up at 4am sick to his stomach. Oh, what a fun way to wake up. I'm blogging at home today while my son is sleeping peacefully. I only hope that I do not get sick. No time for that nonsense.
    Enough "sick" talk. Take a look below to see what wonderful new designs are on the way to the shop.

From Homespun Elegance
"Still Stitching" is a wonderful design. I know quite a few people that I'd like to stitch this for.
Great gift idea! "Sam Crow" is also a cute patriotic piece. I might could even get it finished before July 4th.

The "Fragments in Time" samplers look like they would be fun to stitch and not take a huge amount of time to do and I love the colors in "Inheritance".
