Progress update 2X

Happy Thursday!!

I didn't get around to posting a progress post on Away We Ride last week, so here it is...

My goal was to get the border finished, yay me

Now.. this is this Thursday's update, I love the witches house

Maybe I'll have a finish by next Thursday, we'll see

Anna had a birthday yesterday. I mailed off a package to her, of course, the good friend she is

I bought her a Lizzie Kate Christmas ornament chart with the beads and the linen, I also made this for her

From the JCS Christmas Ornaments 2010 magazine. The design is by Plum Street Samplers

We had a awesome Labor Day weekend. We spent Sunday on the boat on Lake Delevan in Wisconsin.

Pictured is Dan with our daughter, Heather and three of four grandkids, they had a blast, something we have to find time to do lots more of. A little cruising, swimming, picnic, fishing, sunning, it was great, oh yeah, feeding the ducks our sandwich bread

Have a great upcoming stitchy weekend :)

It's always a little comforting when you finish up a border and the edges match up!!! Congrats on hitting that goal.

Getting out on the water is SO much fun!
