I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful 4th of July, whether or not you celebrate Independence Day! I am so glad to have a holiday today and have a three-day weekend. Sooo nice! Eric and I went to see fireworks last night, and we are going to a different place tonight to see more. Eric loves fireworks, so we go every year. My family never really went to see fireworks or did anything special for the 4th of July. Eric is also making Barbeque brisket and coleslaw for dinner tonight. Yum!
Last weekend I was I decided to do a little bit of decorating around the house. I haven’t been in much of a decorating mood lately, so it was fun to finally feel like doing something. I was inspired because Eric bought a flag to put outside the house. Our house already had the bracket mounted for the pole, we just needed the flag. I thought it looked really pretty out there.
I also pulled out one of my quilt tops that still needs to be quilted, but I thought it would be fine for a week or so hanging on the wall in the dining room.
Last weekend we also watched Lawrence of Arabia (finally) for the next movie on the Academy Award list to watch. I loved it. Of course, I’ve seen the first half of it twice, but never seemed to ever see the second half. Next up is Tom Jones, which I have never seen. We also watched National Treasure 2, which was entertaining.
During Lawrence, I was able to make a good amount of progress on the RR I have. I’m stitching the house from Emmaline Whitcomb from LHN’s Dear Diary series. I should be able to get a lot more done this weekend, I hope! I love this fabric though, it’s wonderful to stitch on. I’ll have to make a note of what it is.
Oh, and you know how I seem to have dreams about new stitching projects I want to do…well this was the latest one. This is LHN, and it is all of the “extra” charts from the Dear Diary series stitched together. I want to stitch them like this and make it into a wall hanging. Pretty huh?
Well, that’s all I have for today. I had a lovely long relaxing bubble bath with a book this morning, and stayed in until my fingers and toes had pruned up. Oh, and I received an email saying my Just Nan pieces are on their way – the In the Tin piece and the Dragonfly Scissorcase I expect! Have a fabulous weekend!
I am grateful for lazy mornings.
