A La D Da Finish!

He's finally finished! I'm pretty pleased. I left out the dots because I'm too ocd about my stitches and I, 1) didn't want to carry the floss over large distances and 2) also did not want to do so many singular stitches.  LOL. So here he is.

It'll be a gift for my mom for her birthday, after I get it framed.

Now I just need to pull out Hurrah and finish that too. I can't really say I'm on a roll, but for me, this is a roll. I'm stitching one project after another and have been for more than a year now, and that makes me very happy. With everything else that has gone on, it's been a wonderful stress reliever and I love the feeling of accomplishment it gives me.

My boy turned 23! We had a little (very little) gathering at our house and got him his favorite cake from Olive Garden. Pay no mind to the huge chunk that came off as I unboxed it.

I'm really proud of this kiddo. Hard to believe so many years has gone by. Truly. Where did it go? What have I done with myself in the meantime? All I can say is my mom was right when she said "it'll go by so quick you can't believe it". As the mom of a two year old, I thought "RIGHT, lady. I cannot wait for these twos to be over with!" But now, I would almost give anything to have that time back again.

You never realize the last time your little boy cuddles on your lap or gives you a mushy kiss right on the lips. You never know the last time of anything they do as they grow. All you know is it doesn't happen anymore. And it makes me sad I didn't realize the last time would be the last time, you know? Such is SO much of life! It can be said for anything, really. But he's a lovely young man, and doing great.

Father's Day was low key-we did nothing. My son and my husband worked over at my mom's house getting her yard together. It was much appreciated too.

I'll sign off with a gorgeous double rainbow captured after a storm last week here. I caught it just in time too!

Have a great week and I'll be back soon with a stitch update on Hurrah! Until then,


  1. Mr. Bunny looks very nice, doesn't really need the dots with the scattered letters going on.
    Happy Birthday to your son.
    OMG! That cake!!
    What an awesome Rainbow pic, it looks so cool behind those houses.

  2. What a gorgeous double rainbow you captured with your camera! Happy birthday to your son! That cake looks fabulous. I might have to take a road trip over to Fredericksburg to have a slice. Congratulations on your La D Da finish! I like it better without all the scattered single stitches.

    1. Thanks Robin! The cake was wonderful, and I'd happily give you some, but it's all gone at this point! Looking forward to getting him framed!


Thank you so much! I appreciate all stitchy comments!
