Home Again Home Again

I'm back home (try to ignore the glossy abelia which is in need of pruning) for two days before I head out again, and I'm avoiding the laundry and the grocery shopping and the cleaning that goes along with being away and going away. But it will all be worth it because I have such a good time at camp every year.

I had promised some photos.

My mother's bracelet.

As you can see, I got a mermaid in there. My mother loved it. I overestimated the size of her wrist by five links. It may not be as big as she claims.

The piece I finished on the delayed trip to Florida. With luck I will finish-finish this so I can use it when I shop! This is a JBW freebie created for the Silver Needle. I stitched it on white linen with DMC 335.

Love you too, blogger!

And an update on the mermaid. I spent most of my free time on DD's RR. Funny story about that. Should probably tell DD before I share it here though. I don't want it to be that kind of surprise.

Now to the cleaning, laundry, shopping and responding to e-mail.

LOVE the bracelet but the mermaid is coming along amazingly and if I were you I would save it and give it to your mom for Hanukkah/Christmas and that would be one less thing you had to do. Lots of Love Patti xxx

Great bracelet and stitchy projects. I need some time at camp (she whined). I'll think of you while I'm trapped in Eden.

The bracelet is great especially with the Mermaid. And your Mermaid is really coming along!

Stitching looks beautiful- have fun at camp! (I'm jealous- would love some away stitching time.)

Love the mermaid... you're making great progress on her and that bracelet is wonderful! Dang, I'm whining like Doris (would love some stitchy camp time)! :)

Are you sewing up the " I love to shop..." tote for yourself? Mine is packed for camp.
