The "Dog" Days of Summer

Over a year ago, I joined a now defunct Yahoo group to stitch a wreath by The Prairie Schooler. I chose the leaflet Barnyard Christmas and just a few minutes ago I finished the sixth design out of eight. With two more to stitch, I might actually have a wreath hanging in my home this Christmas.

Thanks for dropping by to pay me a visit.

It's August Already?

Time is flying by. In just a few weeks summer will be over, and my youngest child will be going back to school to start her final year of high school. My other daughter will be starting her final year of undergraduate studies. It's going to be a busy year.

I had the pleasure of making a new friend recently though her blog. I've been visiting Rachel's blog for a long time now, and only when she recently ended her old blog (which she wrote in French) and started her new one (which she is writing in English) did I actually take the time to send her an e-mail. That little effort was rewarded by a warm and gracious e-mail from her. Please pay her a visit.

I'll leave you with a picture of the gift that I stitched for Julie's recent birthday. I thought the gardening theme was just perfect for her. My daughter Justine picked out the fabric for finishing the little pillow. She said it reminded her of a garden apron.

Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to pay me a visit.
