Happy Belated Canada Day and 4th of July!!

And since I got sidetracked yesterday, now belated 4th of July!

Hello to you all!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday if you celebrate and if not I hope you had a great time with whatever you were doing.  (Hopefully getting some stitching in!)

Here are a couple pictures of my boys from the Canada Day parade.

And here is Brayden on his last day of grade 2!  I can't believe how fast this school year went!

And now a little stitching update!

All I have left on the first block of Halloween Rules is the dog.

I am very close to finishing the first "page" on Deepest Love.  I say "page" because I made a working copy so it will be the first page of my working copy, the actually pattern is really only 1 huge page, front and back.

Remy Rabbit is slow going but getting there.

March from the Joyful World SAL by The Snowflower Diaries is coming along too.  All the orange color is finished and I started adding the prettiest shade of blue.

So yesterday turned out to be quite a day.  I had made plans with a good friend of mine to have an evening of stitching.  After I ate supper, which I had burnt fairly well on the BBQ...yum... I headed out.  I decided to stop for 5 skeins of floss at Micheal's so I just grabbed some change and headed in when I thought no I better go back to the van and grab my wallet, I shouldn't leave it in the van.  While doing so I set my keys on the seat and then proceeded to lock the doors.  45 minutes and a coat hanger later I was on the road again.  I did make it to my friends house but our evening ended up being a lot shorter than we had planned.  Oh well we had a fun time anyway.

Wishing all of you a happy day and hoping you all are getting to do something you love.
