How Hot Is It?

I thought I would put a cooler picture on my blog because at 3:00p.m. it was 102.

I made a little scissor fob that I had purchased from Traditional Stitches in their Stash Enhancement.

I am going to show my LK Exchange that was sent today and my Seasonal Exchange that was sent on the 28th.

I have been having trouble adding to my weight loss so I will tell you I have lost 5 lbs. total. That is a beginning. Wahoo!!!!!!
I start back to school on Tuesday with a meeting from 8:30 to 3:00. Oh dear!!!!!!! School officially starts with the children on the 16th of August. I'm ready to start back but I want to stay home a little bit more. We are remodeling our bathroom and there is more to do. I am so thankful for my dh. He has done it all. He has the tiling done. I'm not sure what will be done next but when it is completed I will post pictures of his labors.
I've made vegetable soup so it is time to eat.

Summer Round Exchange Received

I received my Summer Round Exchange piece from Lisa V. It is darling and it truly adds sunshine and joy to my entry way. It is from Shepherds Bush "Scatter Sunshine". It was a welcome surprise.

Now speaking of surprises, last week my friend Becky called me and coerced me into going to Weight Watchers with her which I needed to do. I had gained but I know why so that was ok. Now I'm back on track. She stitched a lovely green bird for me . It is hanging on my tree in the entry way. It is great to have friends that stitch.
I know it has been forever since I have written but I have an excuse and a good one at that. We took our 2 older granddaughters to New Mexico for a little trip. Then I spent a week with our grandchildren in Texas and got to play with the 3 year old twin boys. From two families I had the 5,6, and 7 year old granddaughters come home with me and they spent 6 days. Nana was tired when I took them home but we had a wonderful time. We went to the zoo, the aquarium, shopping, Build A Bear, shopping, shopping............. Need I say more? So I have had so much fun with all of them. Grandchildren are a blessing indeed.
I need to get busy and stitch. I have some exchanges to finish and get in the mail. Peace and blessing to all of you.
