So what have you been up to???

I've done a bit of stitching - did this on Saturday night & Sunday a.m. & gave it to my dad with his other gifts for Father's Day... I think it's pretty cute.  It's Pine Mtn's "My Dad" in case anyone is interested.  I added the JABC Buttons to it.  I'm also still stitching on the Prairie Schooler for the friendship RR I'm doing with Nicole, Karen & Faye.  HOPE to finish it this week, wish me luck!

I stopped at my parent's this afternoon on the way home from the pool for more veggies from the garden & look what my mom bought for me this a.m.!  Isn't it pretty?  I've always wanted a "crystal basket", but never bought one.  This one is large & heavy too - so pretty! She found this at the thrift shop for $3.  WHAT A DEAL!!! 

And speaking of the pool - this is where we've been spending some time lately.   We're "pool sitting" until D&L return from CT in August.  Peaceful isn't it?  They have a lovely home & yard, and the pool is fantastic, even though it's HOT!   The water temp this afternoon was 92, unreal that it's only June.  It's almost like a warm bath until you get out in the HOT sun and get back in, then it's "almost cool" - ALMOST.  ;-) 
And after I laid the camera down & got in, Ray picked it up..... ;-)  I was taking pics just after he finished cleaning it.  This was before my sister & niece arrived & filled it up with floats & toys... ;-)  We had a great afternoon though!  


Thanks for stopping by - have a great rest of the week & HAPPY STITCHING!

I love your pillow finish!! Those are such fun designs to stitch and the finishing is so easy! Love your crystal basket - a steal for $3.00.

And I'm so jealous of the pool - our weather has just been miserable with heat and humidity - the pool looks so inviting.

Great pillow you made for Father's Day! Beautiful crystal basket and wow that pool looks so inviting!

Great find by your mother and love your finish for your father - great colors! Our pool also gets too hot later into the summer. You are so right - it's like getting in a warm bath - ugh! I usually avoid it when the water temperture gets into the 90's although it is cooler in the evenings.

I really liked that Father's day pillow - loved the colors.

That pool sure looks inviting, but I agree that water temp is pretty warm. You all have had a huge run of horribly hot weather. Here is Kentucky we are also having record heat with the high 90's almost daily all through June. UGH!
