We Have Some Progress, Baby!

Happy Saturday, dear friend!

Let me start by saying..."It's hot and getting hotter in So Cal!"  It was just last week, that we Angelenos began to feel the beginnings of that fall nip in the air, and even wore sweaters for the first time at night...but, alas, the dog days of summer had other ideas and reared their ugly heads, yet again. We are expecting triple digits into Tuesday...oy!

The reason I asked ya'll to stop by today is to share some real progress with you...

First, let me show you my SAL progress on "Quaker Village" by Jardin Prive,...


I love this WIP, as I am finding it both relaxing and enjoyable, which makes it a great evening stitch...I am actually keeping up with my SAL ladies since I can stitch while we watch Football and nighttime TV!

Look for a progress update next month.

Next...

Let me show you my progress on "Cottage" by AAN...


I'm enjoying this WIP, as well. I love the colors and cannot wait to add the metallic floss which will come next...check back for more progress soon!

I have finished stitching all of the September Dough Bowl smalls, but I still need to sew them up, so I will wait and share those next week...but trust me, they are so cute!

Next up is some non-stitchy stuff...

Little Brother, as you may or may not know is our resident actor and graduated from College with a Theater Degree. He has many live productions, as well as commercial and film spots under his belt, but he recently scored a role as the main character in a film that was created by a very talented group of UCSB film school students. We are so proud of the film and can't wait for it's arrival on the film festival scene...but in the mean time I was gifted, by Little Brother himself, with an autographed movie poster, which I wasted no time in having framed...



I just love it and cannot stop staring at it...I'm really proud of my hard working kiddos!

Lastly...

Little Brother took time out of his crazy schedule to hang my new mailbox...



Our old one was on it's last leg and I finally said..."Time for a new one," which pleased our mailman since there is no longer a hole in the bottom that swallowed everything up...I think it may have even been haunted LOL.

Like the "Mail" decal? I bought it on Etsy from a wonderful shop called "The Stickerhut," that carries all kinds of wonderful vinyl wall quotes, sayings and words...not to mention decals for all over your home and property...check it out!

There you have it, dear friend...progress!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit, I hope your day is the bee's knees'!

My August TUSAL

Good Sunday Evening, dear friend!

I can't believe the weekend is drawing to an end already, it seems to have sped by so fast...but don't they all!

I am so late in posting my August ORTs jar report, but I drew it out as long as I could just so that I would have something in my jar to show besides cobwebs! It has been so long since I have stitched consistently, and therefor my jar has stood empty as well...but, I am happy to report that, as of the past two weeks I do have something to show...


Thanks for stopping by!
