We Are Home and I Had A Surprise

I received my LK exchange from Lisa S. while I was away on our vacation. What a pleasant surprise awaited me. It is a darling LK Liberty Sampler. Lisa used 28 ct. antique white even weave using the over dyed threads that were suggested. It is so cute and it fits in with all of my patriotic stitching that is in our hall way.

Coming home our car said it was 112 outside. We really thought about turning back and heading for cool Colorado. They are dry like us. We went to The Royal Gorge and we took the Cog Railway to the top of Pikes Peak. We also went shopping. We swam every night and we ate at our favorite Mexican Restaurant, La Casita. The girls were counting how many times we ate there. We also visited our favorite frozen custard eatery, Culver's.
Here are a few pictures of our trip and my exchange from Lisa.

Show My July 4th Display

I was remiss is not showing my new little pillow that Becky made for me so I will share my pics of some of my Patriotic Display. These are exchanges and goodies that Becky has made for me over our years of friendship. Enjoy!!

It Will Be Mailed Tomorrow

I completed my LK Exchange yesterday which is a record for me to be finished 2 days ahead of schedule. I had received a beautiful birthday gift from my stitching friend Becky and I decided to complete my LK in the same manner. I used fabric that I had in my stash and I used the threads that were suggested. I chose the Summer ABC's pattern.

I have packed my cross stitch for our little trip we are taking this week. Got to have your priorities. Now my suitcase is not packed yet but it will be soon.

Our weather is so beastly hot and dry. There may be a chance of showers today but pretty unlikely. Hope everyone has a safe and great 4th of July. God Bless America, Land That I Love!!
