Nothing in particular...

Well, i just about dropped a load when i realized it has been 3 months since i posted last... Spring has finally come to our island, now that it is summer! Today, June 23rd, is the second day this spring/summer that we have had temperatures over 20C and that is unheard of for our area... We have hardly seen the sun at all but i will NOT complain because i see there are so many areas in the world much worse off than we are!

I have not been totally lazy, tho i will admit i have not been out in the yard to do yard work since about the first of June! I have just planted my vegetable garden today and have no idea if i will get anything from it!

Anyways, in my wisdom or lack thereof, i decided to do a spreadsheet of all my unfinished or kitted stitching projects. Oh Dear!!! I have over 45 now... So, i am in the process of finishing some. I love starting new projects!!! I could care less if i finish them!! Not a good thing to do!

So, i am finishing what i am calling my "Mouse House". It is a pinkeep that is featured in the March 2009 Cross Stitch and Needlework Magazine. I have everything stitched, the pinkeep, the scissor holder and the scissor fob. Just put them together... So that this post isn't totally boring, (as i notice i have lost my few followers, and i don't blame them) i will show you what i have so far!

i haven't done too much with my art quilting journal. I have made a few designs in it and am collecting up fabrics to start on a project. It was a great class and learning experience!

We are getting pretty excited here as Prince William and his wife Kate are expected for a visit in a weeks time. They are both coming to the town i live in so i will have to decide if i want to fight traffic to see if i can catch a glimpse...

In the meantime, enjoy your summer!
