A whole Lotta Stichin' Goin' On...and vacation!!!

My week 37 Hoop view. And some little doodads I added to represent vaca time.



Slowly, but surely, winding bobbins




Made a little art piece for the Summer of Love Challenge
Using a 1967 vibe, you were to put what's important to you now in your art. Mine is pretty self explanatory.
The view from the venue....the Bay Bridge.


Gram gram time and a tea party. 
Look at those pinkies.....


 The dot was alone in the house while we were gone. 
Apparently something dripped all over the oven and when we got back and tried to cook something....let's just say the smoke alarms are in good working order.


Our vaca started out in 114ยบ heat and the a/c gave up the ghost about 3 hours into the drive. While I perused the Olive Pit, the hubs 
recharged the freon. Once again, we could drive in cool, refreshing, comfort.
The stud of the day award goes to.....the hubs!!



A gondola ride in the temperate rain forest





Spotted two elusive creatures


Typical tourist shots



Toured the Boeing Factory


Drove onto a ferry...very exciting


Saw the inspiration for a ST:TNG episode. Seriously, right?
 

 Why, because who can refuse a picture board cut out?




A family friend's house was our home base for vaca.
Yep, just 20 feet from the sound. Saw dolphins and everything.






Last but not least, had to pull over when we saw this on our 
coastal drive home. Paul and Babe.


Next post may very well be all about my 2018 planner. can you say Hedgehogs???

Week 33

Where does the time go? Wow, 33/52 already


I slowed down on my hoop to make it last, now that I only have a little over 4 months left, I am going to quadrant it out and do more than a few tiny stitches a day to fill it to the rim.


It was eclipse day in my neck of the woods. I ended up stuck on the road but there were plenty of pics posted by nasa and other peeps. I did get to see it through a pinhole box. It was kinda awesome. No, it wasn't transcendent and I didn't want to make a baby at the vega, nor did I cry and treat it like a rare cosmic event. Some people are just, well, a little to in to it.




Got to see my bestie. She lives on the other side of the country. Soooo Fun! 


How I organized my most recent project.  
I am normally a pile-er/jumbler with my threads. It works, but it makes it hard if I find a loose strand and I can't remember what color I used...oy. I think I may try to be this organized for my next big project. I will post the finished article when the showcase has officially opened and I can link you guys up to #sfsnad.


Fetch, anyone? Crazy dog!

What kinds of creative things are you up to?

week 30

Holy cow!! Where has this year gone??

My hoop shot with a few closeups. 




I am working on this https://www.studiomme.com/ #sacrepigeon so I added a little pigeon.




 My #summeroflovechallenge piece. 
I had too many ideas and no time left, so I just picked one and started!!


My little granddot found a red nose and had some fun with it


Although I am not super creative, I jumped on the felt board bandwagon. 
Soooo fun!!



My first two attempts. Pretty basic, but I will pinterest the heck out of layouts. LOL



What's up with all y'all?  Talk to me......

Week 28

Wow, it's been a jam packed month. No excuses, just don't have blogging at the top of my to-do list.

Let's see what's been happening......................


My hoop. Lots of new stuff



 A few closeups



It's hot, really hot. Freakishly hot.                               The grapes are lookin good!!


The dot is graduating from esthetician school and the baby girl enjoys a mcflurry 




Still wanting to make something like one of these. 
Got some fabric, got some patterns, need to make some time.
I'm really bad about giving my hobby priority once in awhile. Bad habit.


                  Walked the dog...a lot.                                  Got bit by bugs......a lot.

 Pre ordered my hallmark trek ornaments. Only 2 this year.....bummer

A little water fun (mud for the grand) in the sun. 

 What's your summer like? Projects? Talk to me people.
