Summer days!

Despite the rain and the gloomy weather I'm enjoying having the kids home. We settle into a totally different routine, and I just get to hang out with them more in between TKD lessons and various camps. I don't stitch much and my computer time is non existent since they all are into Poptropica at the moment. Look what Ranae sent me for naming her cute little bunny Winston! Isn't it great? Thank you Ranae!
Judi opened up a LNS down in Plattsmouth this weekend, For the Love of Cross Stitch and it's so cute and it's in Plattsmouths historical district with all the antique shops and a wonderful quilt shop opposite it. So Mel and I drove down there and I got SB's 2009 scissor fob and 2 more of LK's Halloween series. All customers got a kitted up freebie too! The fabric is from the quilt store.

Sorry about this bad picture, I didn't realize how bad it was before I uploaded it. With it raining all the time here for the moment it is hard to get good pictures. Anyways, it's my last car project, LHN's Faith worked on a R and R mystery fabric out of a fabric scrap bag.

And this is how far I have gotten on Summer House, I really have to get some hours in on it next Wednesday.
Thank you all for your sweet comments on my last post.

Finished block 9 of Village of Hawk Run Hollow

But first, here's how far I have gotten on Summer House. Not to much but with me hanging out with my dad who was here visiting I haven't stitched in the evenings. I could have sworn that I snapped a picture of it but couldn't find it on the camera so excuse the quick scan.

And here's my block 9, I'm pretty chuffed that I'm done with it. It took me such a long time to finish up, don't know why really? I love the result at least.

So now I'm finally starting to get somewhere on this beast. Since this picture I have gotten a bit more done on Block 10. It would be great if I could finish this one this year

Dad's visit went great! We did get to do lots of things that he had on his list. He loves the Zoo, the SAC museum and we did go through the Wildlife Safari too. It's been a long time since we last did that so it was fun to see what they had changed. He also got a copious amount of shopping in, just like all other Europeans that you let loose in American stores.
This is a picture of Dad and my 2 oldest trying to spot the wolves at the safari!
Thank you for all your nice comments and just for visiting. Hopefully I will get caught up with blogs and my groups later this week. But for now I'm off for my desperately needed hair appointment. It will be a pure bliss I tell ya!
