July update and Stitch from Stash

Hi everyone,
Where did July go?
Bucky and Samantha had their vet visit for their rabies shot and health check and were given a good report.

(one happy boy)

sleepy girl...

anxious to greet our UPS delivery

We also found out some more info about them from a friend who knew their original owner. They are indeed brother and sister; but not from the same litter. Bucky is 11 years old and Samantha is 8.Their original owner had their beds in his kitchen - that explains why they like to be in the kitchen so much!

DH was sick with a fever on and off for about the past 2 weeks. Waiting to find out if it is from the kidney stone - although Dh thinks that it was just the flu. Got in my JEEP to pick up his medications, only to hear a strange noise coming from the passenger air vents (we figure some critter built a nest). The earliest appointment I could get is later this week.

As my parents are preparing to sell the family home, things I had forgotten about that were stored in their attic have found their way to our front porch - now filled with boxes of craft and stitching kits and magazines. Some of which I can now say "what in the world was I thinking - or what was I going to use that for?" So I expect the next month will be filled with finding long forgotten treasures, some duplicates, and more of the above expressions.

Now, for my monthly update for my stitch from stash hosted by Mel at Epic Stitching.

My pre-order of  Just Nan design The Charming House of Lindy Mouse from the Silver Needle- was shipped and it just arrived today for a total of $34.00 spent.

So far that's all I spent for the year... I did see some new designs that I would love to have- hopefully I'll be good and stay within my budget for the next month.

I'm finishing up the model stitching project - had to fix a mistake. I am so looking forward to starting something new this week.
Until next time,
Have a wonderful day!


  1. So glad the brother and sister are healthy and doing well. :)

  2. I often browse through my stash of charts and think 'what on earth was I thinking?' Got to love 80s cross stitch much back stitch! I'm so pleased that Bucky and Samantha got a clean bill of health. :0)
