Here it is, Friday again and I have not posted since last Friday, shame on me. The days sure get away from me.
Thank you all so very much for all the nice comments on my Gameboard end table. I was so pleased that everyone liked it so much. I wish I could email you all my thanks but I can never seem to find emails addresses for those who post comments. thank you all again. You are all so kind. Hug to ((((All of you)))).

This has been a busy week for us. Today was the last day of school for my grandson who is 9 and going into 5th grade in September. Earlier this week his school invited us to attend an award ceremony. The fourth grade classes chose 2 students to receive awards for the highest academic honors and I am happy to say my Grandson received this award, the other person was a little girl in another 4th grade class. We are so proud of him. He is so smart. I can't help but brag a little. :) He also got an award for band, for improving with his instrument. He plays a baritone. OY!! Thats all I am going to say about that. LOL Oh yes, I forgot,he now wants to learn to play the Tuba. Lord help us!!
It was a nice ceremony which was very informal, they had the children all sit on the floor of the gym and we all sat around along the walls or on the bleachers. My granddaugher Tori, his little sister was so thrilled to see him come in with his class that she ran over to him and sat down right next to him among his classmates. He didn't mind at all, and neither did his teacher. She was right at home in the middle of them all and got fussed over quite a bit from some of his classmates who thought was so cute and funny. She clapped and cheered along with them all.

What a great week for stash too, I got a lovely chart from Martina Dey in the mail today. Its a quaker bell pull and its so pretty. I am so excited about it. I can't wait to choose the thread for it. I am sure I will do it in red, like she shows on the chart.
I got a few other great items too, Little House Needleworks "The Sampler Lady". Oh she is just so cute and I hope to stitch her soon. I first thought of stitching her as a standup but now that I have her, I want her definitely in a frame. I also got Little House Needleworks Summer Sampler kit. I am on automatic with these thread packs and threads. They are very pretty, I also have the spring one yet to do. Recently I also got Dragonfly stitches Breast cancer Biscornu, which is lovely. I am anxious to stitch this one. Its so important, it says hope for a cure on it. In addition I got a beautiful piece of fabric from Silkweavers called Days gone by, what a lovely color. I also ordered more fabric but still waiting for it to arrive. Days gone by is just so nice. I think all sampler lovers would definitely love his piece. Ahhhh yes, my new threads, I bought 5 Belle Soie silks. GORGEOUS!! 2 Sister Scarlets, 2 Lasagna, and 1 Rouge. I love them all but in particular love that Sister Scarlet. I can't wait to stitch with it. The lasagna I bought to stitch a Maine coon cat design I got but I am thinking now its a bit too close to lasagna. Maybe a bit too orangey but I am going to try and see how it stitches up. I think it will look great for some Autumn stitching, too. These threads are just so pretty and so soft.

This evening I spent a few hours trying to catch up with my Vierderlanden Mystery Sampler. I did get a lot done. Its getting so big and more lovelier. We are now up to the 30th week, 30/54 I think believe. I am working on page 28 and hope to be all caught up this weekend. I will post a picture of it then.
