Monday Check In

Hello Friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I did! I got to spend the weekend with Chris and Corbin and it was laid back and great. Corbin and I ended the weekend by going to the lake to do a little swimming and grilling. The water temperature and weather was perfect - so much so, I got a little "pink" on the shoulders and back. I used the SPF 50 but I guess I didn't put it on thick enough or just needed to reapply a little more than I did. I just love visiting the lake and being outside under the pines. And why does a simple sandwich or a grilled burger taste better when you're wet?! LOL!

Not much to share on the stitching front. I have been working on the letter "S" some. Not a lot to show but it's a couple of stitches closer to being finished and that's always a good thing.

Have you seen the new Brenda Keyes/Sampler Company patterns? She is releasing two new ones and this one is calling my name........ It's called Sampler Story and I love it! I've already put in a request for this one when it comes in to my online LNS. Can't wait to get this one kitted up and ready to stitch.

This week I will be busy getting ready for a weekend crop at my not-so-local scrapbook store. I haven't been to a crop in forever, it seems. I've got so many pictures I need to get in an album. I'll never be caught up but I do try - LOL. This weekend, I'll be working on some vacation mini albums. It's so much easier to pack when you decide to work on just one theme. I'll be busy pulling paper and cardstock and printing photos. It's always a fun time and I can't wait!

Until we chat again.....
