Some of my Cross Stitch

 Freebie Patriotic
 Ode to summer
Betsy's House
Ok so I am a bit obsessed with cross stitch.  I have been doing it for years and now I am going full tilt to get many of my projects done and framed or made into pillows or pin keeps.  It is a wonderful relaxing hobby.  Most of them will live in Florida.  I have a couple of walls I can use to display them. I'll be adding more about my stitching and other summery things that I have been up to. 

July will be over soon and half of our vacation will be over.  So far it has been a wonderful summer being with our family and friends and just relaxing in our camper. 

Thanks for coming by and I hope you will come back.

What is our camping life like?

  OK we have been "camping" for about a month.  I have settled into a routine that I really enjoy.  We have a couple of functions coming up and after that I will really start to do some of the things that I planned to do this summer.
It has been really rainy here, but I don't mind that.  I've joined the "Y" here and I've gone swimming twice and had a routine mapped out for me on the machines. It is a great place.  Mainly I have been stitching and visiting with my sister and our daughter's family.  This place is very secluded but so close to our little city that we don't lack for things to do or places to go if we feel like it.  My old friend and I have gotten together and had a wonderful lunch.  More to follow.
After I download my pics from my phone, I'll show my progress on my projects and what I am getting done.  That is the direction that I am going in now.
Thanks for sharing some time with me and come back and see me sometime.

The ham is finished.

Easter is over now, and for me it is time to get myself in gear and do some finishing (of cross stitch), sorting all media, sorting scrapbooks and journals and in short, plan the rest of this month, year, and era. I'm going to start just posting some random pictures of projects and places.  These are all fairly recent and don't need too much explanation. 
 The needlework is ready to be framed. I'm taking that back to NY to search for the perfect frame.  The others pics are from our recent trip to Key West.   A wonderful butterfly garden. So beautiful.

I hope to post about weekly and include all the interesting things that might be happening.  My feelings will come forward too at times, but mostly it will be about what the progress is on my various and vast projects.

I'd love to hear from you. And if you do comment thanks.  See you soon.

Me and my Buddy..

We are joined at the hip, my buddy and me.  From day one we have been having fun together. Sometimes going somewhere special, or just hanging around our home or yard.  Recently we got back from a two week vacation and just jumped back into the daily routine like no "big" deal.  It is a wonderful gift I will never get over receiving. Thanks Phil, you are my best Buddy and always will be.

No time like today!

Christmas is coming fast.
I'm using my blog to document my décor and the new direction I want to go in decorating
Most of my things, I have had forever some are new to me but not new.  I have a couple of neat shops that I tap for fun and finds.

We are moving furniture out to our "Florida Room".  Most of the stuff we bought when we thought we would only be here in the winter.  I was going modern then.

I'' post pictures of that tomorrow.  I'm thinking it will be good for stitching and watching Netflix.
I'm also going to post my craft finishes.  Stitching knitting and paper crafts. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Why I blog

I'm trying to keep track of my hobbies and travel and health.  I especially want to document my ongoing progress of long term things like my scrapbooks.  With that said I must close and get going on those things.
