I worked on Freight Train this past week.  So close to the end but it seems to be moving so slow.

We had beautiful weather Saturday for my birthday.  My Dad took me and my sister (whose birthday is 2 days after mine and 8 years later) out for breakfast.  Then I came home and visited with my 80 yr old neighbor.  She showed me all of her lovely flowers and gave me gardening tips.  I then mowed the yard.  My brother called to wish me a happy birthday.  Did laundry.  My In-laws dropped by to wish me happy birthday.  We had a cookout for supper and then watched movies.  One of my favorites - Footloose.  All in all it was a good day.

Progress on Wintertime.  I spent two days just frogging this section and re-stitching it.  Don't know what happened as it is not that complicated a piece.

Took my father-in-law out for lunch yesterday for Fathers Day.  Taking my dad to lunch today.

 This week was a new start for me.  Autumn Angel by Joan Elliott.  I am stitching her on 14ct Parchment.  So far the colors seem kinda christmasy to me.
Monday at work I got a nice surprise.  These beautiful flowers came from one of the agents I work with.  So bright and colorful.  They stayed nice all week.  I hope they still look decent this Monday when I go into work.

I attended my niece's high school graduation ceremony and party this weekend.  I enjoyed visiting with everyone.

Our computer was broke again all week.  Back working now but I have lost all of the pictures I had taken of family events for the past few years.   When I get paid this week I am going to buy another thumb drive and put my pictures on it weekly as I take them off my camera.

 I have been working on Butterfly Fairies - Day this past week and got alot done.  Of course I did stitch thru 2 races last Sunday - the Indy 500 and Coca Cola 600.  Also I was off on Monday for the Holiday and that gave me extra stitching time. 

We had another hot day here yesterday.  I try to keep everything turned off to battle the heat.  I got up this morning to find my furnace running even though it is turned off.  I can see a new furnace in the future.  My house is 30 years old and things are just breaking down.
This is a picture of my braid that I had cut off Wednesday after work.  It is 24 inches.  This was my first hair cut in a salon since I was 5.  I have cut my hair myself at different times but I have not had short hair since I was 5. I can't believe how easy it is to take care of my hair now.  A couple of swipes with the brush and I am ready to go.  My braid will be going to Locks of Love.  I just need to take it to the post office.

I am up to a new start in my rotation.  Hopefully I will have some good progress to show next week.

Here is my Ort collection from May.  I am stitching up a storm on Day and should have a good update on Sunday.
