Happy Monday!!!

Aren't 4 day weekends just one of the best things in the working world?? We had a great weekend hanging out around the house. Thursday was shopping with Ruby. Friday was cooking, cleaning, stitching, swimming, floating, reading, napping and downtown to watch the fireworks on the harbor. Saturday was more stitching with Eleanor and a little bit of time in the pool too! Sunday was even more stitching and visiting with Ruby and Bill!

What do I have to show for all this????

This Heart of Mine on the Calypso fabric!
I also started this on the Orange zest. No photo, not much to show. I'm debating if I should stitch it with 2 strands of silk or only 1. I did a sample each way & I can't decide!
I also started the Sea Horse box last night. Not much to show on that either as I just worked the outside border of the box lid. I'm liking this reverse rotation thing. My main concern right now is..... how am I going to keep track of and store all these starts, let alone ever get another finish??

Oh, one more photo to share. Eleanor put the grommet in my Camp Stitch ~ A ~ Way floss tag so that makes this officially finished! I love it!!!

This Sunday is Steamy Sunday Stitching and baked tater bar. Y'all come!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving me such wonderful messages!
Happy week!
Happy stitching!
Be safe!!!
