It's been awhile since I've done a regular ol' update. While sitting in airplanes and airports, I was able to get some stitching done. "Fine Linens" received quite a bit of attention until my eyes tired of the 32 ct. and thought I'd begin a little something on 28 ct. It's so much easier to stitch on while sitting in the airport after dark waiting for another delayed flight, lol!
This is Snowflake 1 from Thistle Threads Snowflakes stitched over 2 on white Cashel linen with the gorgeous Waterlilies Tracy sent me!
It took a couple of days to acclimate to the Pacific time zone and the first couple days of May are kinda hazy in my memory. May 3 we celebrated ds Brendan's 16th birthday. It was very low-key celebration, but he was quite satisfied - at least that's what he told us. :)
Since then I've planted some annuals and a few perennials in my garden - that means my rock pile continues to grow! Kyle has received the all clear from the doctor that his wrist is completely healed and his activities are no longer restricted at all. Kirsten and I attended an afternoon tea with her American Heritage Girls troop at a nearby retirement home. There was quite a nice turnout of the ladies in residence and they enjoyed hearing the girls sing and chatting with girls and moms too.
Of course, there's the usual mundane housekeeping activities I've been attempting to catch up with. What I haven't caught up with yet is my blog reading! I've been trying to spend time reading and commenting, but it's going to take me some time yet - so I'll thank you all ahead of time for being patient with me!
Also on deck this month is getting my Neighborhood RR ready to mail on June 1. It's been great fun flipping through old issues of JCS looking for cute houses and gardens that I might be able to use for my rr and those of my friends. But it's crunch time now - gotta make some decisions and put needle to thread!
