Let the summer begin.....

Yes you heard right. We haven't been able to do a whole lot yet this summer, but that is about to change. We have been taking care of 3 houses (2 to get ready to people to move into) and it has consumed our time! But now that our daughter has moved out of one and into the other and we have new renters in our other house, we can just concentrate on OUR house!!! Seems like every evening and weekend we were tied down to one of them.
I haven't updated since May and June was really a blur. But first off my Dad is doing well and seems to have stumped the Drs. again. Thanks for all of your thoughts, prayers and concern.

As far as stitching goes....I got the 2nd page finished on my Mystic and then I put it away for awhile. I did finally get to just a little bit of green. I finished the 3rd square on Carolyn's RR before I mailed it on. It was a nice change of pace using one color thread while I was also working on my Mystic. But my big event was my finish of Amberlyn's stocking!! I already have someone to finish it for me. I can do most finishing techniques, but a stocking with the lining and all?? I'm going to pass the buck on that one and pay to have it done.
It was Amberlyn's 1st birthday in June and here she is with her birthday outfit and a couple more just because she's so darn cute! She's loving going in the pool so I hope that continues as she gets older.
Hoping to get some time on the motorcycle now that we have some time and definitely more stitching or having Amberlyn over. We haven't been able to do much of that either since we were working on houses.
Thanks for the comments and taking time to read my posts. I know how busy everyone is and it's nice to know you take the time.
