Summer-Summer-Summertime

Nothing like a little old school Fresh Prince (remember back before Will Smith was an actor?) to remind us that summer has begun however unofficially. Of course today Southeastern Pennsyltucky is wet and cold. Unofficial, indeed.

The dude and I enjoyed our start of summer by planting some veggies, visiting Bartram's Garden, and seeing an old friend. And sitting around on our asses for good measure. I didn't stitch much, but I did wind loads of floss onto bobbins--AC Moore had a 6/$1 sale. In addition to the 30 I picked up, there were the 150s, 160s, and 3800s that I've had sitting around waiting for a new storage box to live in. Nothing says holiday weekend like shopping a craft store sale.


In the continuing celebration of my five years of blogging, May's giveaway is a summery scissors fob I beaded imploring you to stitch, matching fat quarters, and a pair of Fiskars embroidery scissors. Just comment on this post. No need to spread the word; you don't want any competition. ;)



Drawing on May 31.

woo hoo a palm tree :) I'd love to be a winner of your giveway :)

Kathryn said...

Of course I want these lovely giveaways. I even have the PERFECT project for the scissors fob. Hang Ten by Raise the Roof. I have the pattern, I have the threads, I just need to finalize the fabric. (Oooooh, can I make a bad Powerpoint presentation of that last sentence?)

Annemarie said...

Ooh, I can't wait for my holidays to start, because I have the entire collection of DMC threads to wind on bobbins. Maybe having a new cat around won't help in achieving that goal.
As I won one of your fabulous fobs last year I'm not sure it would be fair to enter me into the drawing?

I wasn't going to enter - figured I'd let someone else win for a change, but then someone said SCISSORS, and suddenly I lost all sense of fair play.

I looked at my kingdom

To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air

My kids still love to watch this show. It's now retro!

Deb said...

Ah, the Fresh Prince - my kids still watch this one - I think their favorite is Carlton singing his rendition of It's Not Unusual! I still get a kick out of the episodes. Congratulations on your fifth year of blogging.

I'd love a chance at the giveaway too. May 31st is my birthday, so maybe the b'day gods will have you pull my name! Well, I can wish, can't I???

Does SE PA really count as Pennsyltucky? I thought you had to be further west.

6 for a buck! What a deal that was! How did you only come home with 30 skeins? Great restraint on your part, I reckon!

Congrats on 5 years of blogging. Can't imagine that I'll last anywhere near that long!

Sarah said...

6/$1? Lucky! My local Joann Etc has been out of stock on 932 for about 6 months now and they assure me there is nothing they can do about it. I'm sure the average cashier can't but what the heck kind of store are they running?! Oh well. rant over.

Congrats on 5 years! It'll be 6 for me on LJ this summer and I'm somewhere over 7 all told.

Carolyn NC said...
