Catching up

Whew - it's been a crazy couple of months. I showed you photos of the wedding in the last post - here is a picture of the sampler I stitched for Brian and Brittany. Since her favorite holiday is Halloween, I went searching for a Halloween chart I could make into a wedding sampler and this is what I came up with. Love One Another by Plum Street Samplers. I added their names and the date to the bottom. It was really a fun stitch and I may stitch it again (minus the names/date) for myself - some day.

I've been out of town the past 3 weekends in a row. The first one, I took my dad to Arkansas to his high school reunion. This is where we took our morning walk. Three miles through the field. This is the farm where my dad grew up. His oldest brother owns it now.

The next weekend, we went to Austin to pick up baby boy and his girlfriend, Rachael. They flew to Austin for a wedding then spent the week with us so they would be here for Brian's wedding this past weekend. 

We went to dinner at a place on the lake. The weather was great so we ate outside.

We were treated to a beautiful sunset!

We took Rachael on a mini tour to show her where Jason grew up. This is in front of the football stadium that just underwent a huge renovation. 

We dropped the off at the airport in Houston before we headed back home on Sunday. (they made it back to NY before we made it home!)

It's always quiet after any of the kids have been to visit. Miss them being around!

Finally finished stitching a couple of Christmas gifts (not fully finished yet) and started an ornament last night. (I'm stitching Be Merry first but hope to get all three stitched) I thought I would stitch in hand but I'm going to have to try putting it in a hoop and see if the holes are easier to see. I didn't leave a lot of margin since I knew I was going to be making it into an ornament - hope I have enough space to get the hoop on!

That's it. Just trying to catch up on stuff around here. Being gone three weekends in a row puts me a bit behind! 

Hope you are having a great week and thanks for stopping by!

Wow! You have been busy! How nice to get to spend that time with your daddy. I'm sure you had fun with your son and his girlfriend! Oh, and the stitched piece you did is so lovely! You do a beautiful job too. Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
