Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July! The last four days have been filled with a rodeo, a parade, fireworks, and stitching on my JOJ WIP in between all that. JOJ stands for Just One July that Justine is doing where you work on a WIP for the entire month. I decided to drag out a WIP that hasn't seen the light of day for almost a year! Here's Pumpkins and Sunflowers before..
Lots of progress, stitching about 3 hours a day plus a little today.
Below is what it should look like..
When it gets boring stitching the inside of the big pumpkin, I move onto another section. Now I have the other sunflower and the two leaves left. Lots of backstitching also. I really think I can get this finished before the end of this month IF I ignore the noise the Spooked LK sampler and other WIPs are making!
Some of you may know that I'm an empty nester and I'm divorced so I live alone. Lately, I've been eating fast food a lot and we all know how healthy that is! You have all heard of Blue Apron? Well I thought I would give it a shot. At $30 off the first time, I signed up for two servings and you get 3 different meals. I stretched it into 6 servings/meals for $29.99. Regular weeks are $59.99. I'm not sure I can do it every week though. So here's what my first meal was..Blackbean Pork burger and Green Beans..
I have to say it was very tasty. The green beans have sesame oil and a Japanese seasoning on it. It was all pretty good. Tomorrow night it's Fried Chicken breast with Kale Slaw. We shall see...
I now subscribe to 3 Flosstubers and last Thursday night found me and ET watching a floss tube..
ET is the youngest and the runt of the cats I have and I think she was getting into the Flosstube!
Alrighty, that will be that! It has cooled down here some after last weeks monsoon rains. June gets hot here and that tends to usher in our monsoon season. It should be dry the rest of this week.
Thanks for stopping by and hope your week is off to a good one!
