Some progress and an exchange

Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies!~ I actually made it through the heat yesterday!! Man it was hot. My husband said that he heard that the heat wave was supposed to end last night, but Weather Bug says today that we are in for more. Weathermen; gotta love 'em. I sometimes think it is 90% guess, and 10 percent scientific! LOL!

Yesterday hubby worked a blood drive at a Genral Mills convention. All of the employees that were working brought home two bags of groceries that they were giving away. I was pleasantly surprised. Below was just part of what he brought home as there were duplicates in the other bag. They even had a huge towel with a big blue "G" on the front. Hey , for free, I can live with a blue "G"! Oh, and you see those new pretzel M&M's upfront? I snagged those right away! LOL!

I found out from Barbara of Mainely Stitching that the exchange I sent her for the 4th of July Exchange I was in arrived. I stitched Bent Creek's Uncle Sam Flatbed and finished into a pin pillow. I think it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself!





I got just a tiny bit more done on the Virtue Sampler. As I sit here typing, I see that I posted the same picture as I did yesterday . Whoops! Well , I guess I won't change it now since I would have to pull all of the pictures and repost them. So ,hopefully I don't pull the same bonehead move tomorrow!



Well, thank you all for your visit and for the wonderful comments! Keep 'em comin'!

'till next time,

don't be a stranger,

  1. Your 4th of July cushion is superb, I love how you used the buttons! We're having a bit of a heat wave in the UK too, which is unusual as the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament is on at the mo - this usually means solid rain for a fortnight!

  3. What great goodies Jack brought home. You can tell him to swing by my house next time! LOL
    Loce your little pillow, it's so cute!
    Christina is right I'm not sure what is going on with our weather, but I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts. We don't get it as hot as you do and we don't get the humidity either. Hope it breaks soon and is a little more bearable.

  5. Very cute work on that pillow! :D

    I saw a big display for those m&m's at the convenience store, but there were not actually any of that flavor in it! Good thing for my diet as I probably would have bought 'em!

  7. Do you just love getting freebies like that? My husband gets stuff like that occasionally from clients and it's always fun to see what they sent. Of course, if there is anything that resembles cookies or chocolate, the kids take off with that. Love your pillow - it came out so cute!!!
