Last Day of July

Wow!  Where has the time gone?  Tomorrow will be the first day of August!  Only 18 more days till my beach trip!  Cannot wait!

This was a pretty good weekend even though it did rain all this Sunday's afternoon.  The sun did make an appearance all day Saturday and I was able to get some much desired pool time!  It was great to relax by the pool and read a book all afternoon!

Did some shopping Saturday morning.  Picked up two new pairs of shoes and, my favorite, a new Coach purse!  Love, love, love it!  Now I have a black purse, brown purse, and 2 blue purses.  Now I feel like I can branch out and get some other colors.  Maybe my next one will be purple or grey?  The possibilities are endless!  :)

Last weekend I finished page 2 of HAED's Mad Tea Party.  Only 36 more pages to go.  This piece is for my oldest niece.  Maybe by her 16th birthday it will be done?  (She's currently 10 years old)  LOL  This piece is going slow since I am doing 2 over 1 but I am loving the tapestry look it has.  In the lower right corner, you can see the Mad Hatter's hand appearing. 

Earlier this week I started the Tinker Bell project for my sister.  Not much has been completed and honestly I have put more stitches in since I took this picture yesterday but was too lazy to update the pic. I typically don't like working with Aida but this one isn't too bad.  It isn't very stiff. 

Only five more months left of the year.  I have so many projects I want to get done.  What will get done and what will once again linger in the unfinished pile!?

Everything of mine will be lingering in the unfinished pile, except for maybe Jesus. I have too big a rotation to think anything will get done. Here's hoping you have lots of finishes. Both Mad Tea Party and Tinkerbell are looking good! Grats on the progress!

Both are looking great! It doesn't matter how long the HAED takes, as long as you are enjoying every stitch =)
