It Is Cold Outside?

Brrrrrr. It was too. Old today to sit on the porch.  Rain and wind drive me inside at camp. Fire in the pellet stove and all was well.  InhVe to laugh because I had visitors in Sunday.  After a great lunch on the porch, it turned cold no rainy.  We moved inside with the fire.  The biggest challenge was to stay awake.  The sound of the rain, the warm fire and we all wanted to nap!

I will share a photo of the hat!  Happy Fourth of July early. 

I also started making bottle covers.  Since we are still using bottled water at camp, it gets confusing as to whose is whose.  

Over the last week, I have been busy with cross stitch. I love the American flag project.

Catch Up Time

I was able to finish the Lizzie Kate Summer piece.  I tried to set up Spring, but I am lacking a color so it went on hold.

That was fun.  Next?  One Nation by Bygone Stitches.  What am I thinking?  It is a flag.  Very patriotic. 

I also decided it was time to make the Fourth of July hat I found in the closet.  The hat was finished today.  I modeled it but the Blogger doesn't want to continue so stayed tuned for future updates.

A Perfect Day on the Porch

I headed to camp with low expectations.  It has been hot and humid with high pollen counts.  I thought I would arrive, do a few chores and then head home to the air conditioning.  Well.  I stayed most of the day!  There was such a nice breeze off the river!  Wind and sun and fun for me.  I stitched.  I had lunch and I did do a few chores.  It was such nice day.

Stitching and Summer Heat

It has been a crazy week.  Busy with many, many trips to camp.  I do love it over there.  The builder is busy trying to finalize the last few items.  Also my sister came for a visit.  She was able to make it to the beach so she could put her feet in the water and she took a photo from the beach.  I live it.

I have been attempting to stitch in between the many errands,  Lizzie Kate Summer. Most appropriate. It is hot me humid.  Summer has arrived.  Grrrrr.  I live to stitch on the porch at camp but today was too hot and humid.  It was nice and cool inside but the smell of polyurethane was overwhelming.  I didn't stay very long.

Lucky Enough is Done

It is complete.  I have been pushing to get this done so I can put together the next project before I return to camp. This was a fast project and I really like it.  What's next?

Camp Is Awesome!

I had a fantastic time.  Three days at and involved with camp!  I am worn out and tired.  It was so good to have my brother here with time to play at camp.  I like the new bed.  Things are settling down. I am home for a few days but I hope to go back soon.  

This is a panoramic I took this morning before I left.  I saw two families of Canadian Geese.  Yesterday we saw a bald eagle flying low over the river.  Not to mention the ducks, beavers, muskrat and more.  I hardly touched a needle while at camp but I do have a new stitching nest inside over there so there is hope.  I have the current project has cross done.  Next is back stitching and lettering.
