I haven’t had much time to stitch lately but I’m trying my best to get the project done quickly. Even though there is only a slight bit of difference, small progress is still progress!!

This is how it’s looking now….


The majority of the light colors are actually a really light blue grey, like this….


Hopefully you can see the difference there. It’s a bit hard to see right now because I haven’t added the rest of the bottom areas so everything just looks white and blends in. Hopefully I’ll get a bit more done before next weekend but hubby is off tomorrow thru Monday so I may not have time. Lol.

On the rambling side of things (if you don’t want to here my ramblings you can stop reading, I just didn’t want to start a whole different post), I ordered some nail polishes that are coming in the mail and I’m completely anxiously awaiting their arrival. The reason I’m so hyped up about them is because there is something special about these polishes, but I’m not going to tell you what that is until I receive them. I did get something to use on my nails now though. They are in need of quite a bit of repair so I went to Walgreens, and with my point card saved almost $5, and got these…


Sorry for the bad picture, it’s the best I could do with th’s lighting conditions. But, I’ve read that with the Sally Hansen it’s a hit or miss thing as to whether or not it works hopefully it’ll be a hit on me. The Nailtiques is something that I’ve heard and read many people rave about so I had to snatch it up. It’s the half ounce bottle and it was $19.99. Now I know you’re thinking That’s pretty expensive, and it was to me too, but out of the thousands of reviews online about it I found maybe a handful that were bad. That’s pretty impressive to me and because my nails are in need of some extreme TLC I got it. Hopefully it works. I’m also thinking of doing my nails a stars and stripes design because tomorrow is 4th of July (Independence Day) for us but I’m not sure yet.

Also, I have to mention really quickly that we had some friends over on Sunday for a BBQ and we got a game to play cause it looked like fun….


It really was so much fun!! The object of the game is to guess what you are based on the card in your headband. You can only ask yes or No questions and the others can only answer yes, No, could be or I don’t know. It was hilarious because it took us a couple of rounds to get the hang of it because we would have to go around the circle and by the time it was our turn again we had forgotten what we had asked. If you ever have a chance to pick it up and you like games with a challenge then this’ll be perfect for you!!

Until next time,

Keep those stitches whipping!!
