We've been busy, busy - our little ruler boxes were in the Quilter's World (Summer 2018 edition) magazine, and will be in Vogue Patterns coming up - so we've stayed busy with that.
And we've sold tons and tons of spray bottles (thank you all for that!). You will be seeing these in a magazine this fall.
I can't remember if I mentioned before that I started cross stitching again. It's been over 20 years - I used to stitch a lot, but when I went back to school I put it away - there just wasn't time. I was working full-time, helping to raise 2 kids who were involved in sports and many other things and then started taking classes 2 nights a week. Then I started quilting (which I didn't have time for either!) and the rest is history. I have a few friends who love to cross stitch and have tried to get me back into it, but I resisted until I saw the Farmhouse Christmas Series - and I just decided to jump back in! Here is one o the blocks from that series...
This is my first full finish since starting back in cross stitch. My friend Lois from Elegant Stitches did the finishing - isn't it cute? If you've ever bought hand dyed rick-rack or poms, it could very well be from her. Lois sent me a good picture showing the inside of the box too, but I can't get it to download to my computer, so maybe next time! Here you can see that Daisy seems to think the box is in her space!
I've talked about my niece, Johnna, before - here is a picture of her with her Mom and Dad (my brother) at her college graduation.
This just makes me laugh - Ozzie is about to fall asleep standing up. He's exhausted from sleeping all day!
And here is a flashback from 25 years ago! This is my grandma and me at my cousins wedding. Grandma had Alzheimer's and this was a tough day. She was confused - I think because there was a lot going on. But in other ways it was a great day - fun to see my cousin Phillip and Miekka get married. They are who I stay with when I vend at the Dallas, TX show.
