Christmas in July

Yesterday, my mom and I went to a Christmas in July party at the Dogwood Patch which is the local-est needlework shop around. My mom spent Tuesday night with us and then we loaded up in her car and headed north to Hiawasee. My husband drove us and then took the girls to a beach area at the lake. We had a wonderful lunch at Michaelee's and then came home to check out our stash. The first picture is a hollyhock in my front garden. The second picture is the view of Lake Chatuge and the mountains from the Dogwood Patch's front door. The third picture is the gift I got in the gift swap - 40 count silk mesh! The last picture is a Brittercup ornament I did last year. I bought an autumn Britty Kitty design at the shop. My mom has not been 'in' to cross stitch for a while. I think she was a bit overwhelmed by the bounty at the Dogwood Patch!

Yes, I was overwhelmed. What a wonderful way to spend a morning! I wanted one of almost everything, but settled for a "few" special things. You have inspired me to take up needle and thread again.

Beautiful flower - just gorgeous! You must teach me how to be a green thumb too.

Sounds like you and your Mom had a delightful time!
