Happy Fathers Day!

 I'm such a bad blogger. I always think I will get posts up and then I get busy and the day gets away from me.

It's hard to find recent photos of my dad but I have a couple of ones from when he was younger that I love, so I thought I would post this one. He's a great dad and an awesome papa!  He is always there to lend a hand when needed or give advice - even loans out tools on occasion. LOL. Maybe I will snap a pic next time I see him since I know he likes to have his picture taken! (NOT) Should have done that yesterday.

Speaking of great dads - this guy here, is a keeper. Nothing he wouldn't do for his boys. 

These are the men in my life.  
Love them all with all my heart!

Maybe I will be back before the end of the month - no promises.

Happy June!

I don't seem to get around here very often anymore. I have no excuse other than poor time management and crappy internet service. I still have my Titanic at Biltmore photos to show but I need to go through and pick out which ones to post (again - time management) but I wanted to say hello.

I changed out my stamp it the other day.

I finished the stitching on the September one - still need to add the little buttons and I think it needs a doorknob. I'll get that done and have it mounted in plenty of time for display in September. I still have 5 more to stitch. I have no idea why I started with February but I'm hoping to mix them in with other stitching and have them all ready for display on time this year.

I pulled an old freebie chart yesterday and got a bit of stitching on it (no photo). Should be able to finish it today then need to decide how to finish it off. Thinking about a small pillow finish. It's a patriotic piece and I think I have some fabric in my stash that will work.

We went to Houston last weekend to help the oldest move. (from a 3rd floor apt to a town home - puts him closer to work but I hope the next move he hires it out!)  I took my stitching with me but I didn't get much done. I used to stitch in the car all the time but it doesn't seem to work well for me anymore. By the time I find the hole we hit a bump. By the time we got back to the hotel at night I was too tired.

I did make a stop at 3 Stitches on the way. I picked up some threads needed to kit up a few projects and a couple of charts - that photo is still on my phone. 

Time to start my day.

Hope you are all having a great start to summer. It's already HOT here in Texas - bad part is that it will only get hotter until about October.
