Tuesday Finishes!


This week I had planned on showing you fun photos, at the beach, with Nick, but that didn't happen. I have learned that if I go up and tell him we are going to the beach, he is eager to go. But, his parents decided they were going out so they could drop him off, and of course, the minute they stop at our house, he goes into his crying routine and saying he didn't want to go. Not really sure what that is about, since we always have fun and last time, he actually wanted to stay longer, so instead, I spent the weekend at home.

Luckily it was the first of the month on Sunday, so a new stitchery to enjoy. I love getting out, but with this heat and the crowds, it is just too much.

The design is from Kathy Schmitz's, One Stitch Club and I thought it was perfect for a set of sachets and a nice gift idea. They are 5" x 6" and I stuff them lightly, then add some lavender and finish off with a little more stuffing.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday tomorrow. We are going to my SIL's. I like my SIL and her husbands family is nice, but I have no desire to cook and bring my own food, so I will wait till I get home to eat. They are on the island, so I will be able to go swimming and paddling if I want. Bean is coming, I know the neighbors will be shooting off fireworks and I am afraid to leave him alone too long. I know Bean will love that, he has gone before and loves all the attention and beach time.

Kids can be so fickle. I'm sure it's a stage that he will outgrow.
Have a happy and safe 4th 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

You did a lovely job with Kathy’s pattern! Staying in ended up being productive ;-).
I too rather stay in and stitch than being in the heat & crowds.
I may have to join the One Stitch Club... the patterns are so cute!

You must have quite a stash of gift items ready for giving. The Kathy Schmitz designs have certainly been an inspiration for you.

Even without the kids, plans can change in an instant. Hot here and rain adding to the humidity. Your little pillows are just perfect.
