Beach, Stash, and Bubblings from the Cauldron!

Beach is over again? It was fun while it lasted. Just a few pics below. I need to live there I tell ya.
I'm really in my happy place when at the beach. The fox photo was taken behind an amusement park. There were lots of them back there, and it was a real treat to catch them watching everyone. It was late at night and they were right under the lights, just hanging out!

Boardwalk and amusement park pics - also a view from our condo.

I bought so little stash this year. I decided I really need to concentrate on what I have, but I did give in to temptation for these. In case you can't see it, they are Plum Street Samplers Hare's Christmas, and Brightneedle's Under the Sea here.....

And Blackbird Designs Bittersweet Moon, Cricket Collection's Regatta, and Plum Pudding's Bridget Bishop here.

Finally, a little sneak peek of what I'm stitching now. It's a new design and I hope to have it done in the next couple of weeks. That'll be a record for me I know. I think I have the name for it, but I'll decide for sure when it's done.

Does anyone know what the heck is up with the Japanese and Chinese language comments I have on my blog? Is it spam? Are they really comments? I notice that someone likes to just put random quotes. There are more of these every time I make a post and I'm not getting it. The commenters don't appear to have "real" blogs, and the curiosity is killing me, lol. If you have any tips, please do share!

Until next time, have a fabulous stitchy week and I'll be back soon with a sneak peek update! Thank you for taking the time to read my blog!

Me, Adam, and Fireworks

OK, so I know it's 4th of July and all - well, actually the 5th. And as grateful as I am to live in the land of the free, home of the brave, I also cannot seem to set aside thinking about where I was last Sunday, the 27th. I spent the evening with:

...mmm hmmm. Yep, I spent the evening with Adam Lambert. And it was everything I thought it could be, lol. His CD is incredible, and hearing those songs right from his lips was perfection. Oh yeah, I know I'm like a schoolgirl over everything Adam, and he did not dissapoint. At all.

I took that photo myself, that's how close we were - maybe 10-15 feet from him! In fact, he was so fabulous, I'm going again in August! Time for another can of glitter hairspray, people. The only person more glittered up than me in that joint was Adam. :-p No kidding. Wow. I feel now is a good time to mention that my awesome husband accompanied to this concert and he enjoyed it too, though he doesn't really rock out like you'd think. He parties on the inside. Ha.

I have many, many more photos of him, rest assured. :-)

Spent a wonderful day Saturday with my hubs and my awesome kid. Caution: my nose appears larger here than in real life. Maybe not.

Our little town put on a great fireworks show. Luckily, we only have to drive to the top of our subdivision to see it! It's always awe-inspiring to see fireworks on a large scale.

We're looking forward to heading to Ocean City, MD on Saturday and I need to pick out my stitching to take. For some reason, I still haven't felt like stitching - especially my own stuff!! What's up with that? GAH! I want to take something fun, for myself for vacation. I think I'm suffering from severe loss of mojo. Where did my mojo fairy go for goodness sake? She needs to come back and sit on my shoulder, very soon. Stitching makes me so happy and relaxed, so why is it that I avoid it sometimes? How stupidly weird is that? Regardless, I will have some stitching hopefully done while out of town and have something to show next time.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. We have so much more to enjoy. The days are hot, the flags are out, and the insects are eating me up. Have a great stitchy week and enjoy yourselves!
