I THINK THERE IS A MOUSE IN THE HOUSE!!

 As I have a problem--things keep coming up missing--like in the evening I will break off a small piece of chocolate and save it for later in the evening--Then later I remember it and go to pick it up and pop it into my mouth--only --it's gone!!!  And I don't remember already popping it into my mouth--so I must have a mouse--

Wonder if it is this guy--

but he sure looks like he asleep and so innocent !!!!!  This is one of my Christmas in July stitches--this one is for me--unless I do another order at Just Another Button company and order another kit!!!

And I also did these for gifts--



And I just got them finished off this afternoon while watching the race--but hey today is still July!!!

And I got this little pillow done--

And now I have little pillows that say--Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer--and the summer one has taken her rightful place--
in my little red Cracker Barrel truck--

I also finished the third row on my ABC house sampler this morning--

one more row to do!!!

Now I have done some other things besides Counted Cross stitching--
I got July's Bird block finished--
I fussy cut roses for this one-think this block might be my favorite so far!!!

And I am hand quilting on this little wall hanging--

am on the flying geese borders now--

And week ends while watching racing I am embroidering on the Christmas baking scene--

And I finally got the candy canes and the Ball canning jar all stitched and now am working on the ivy leaves--was really glad to get the jar and the candy canes done--that was alittle tricky--the rest looks a bit easier--just will take lots of time!!!

And for knitting--
finished a pair of socks this week--

and now here is the next pair  on the needles--
These are done with a bit heavier yarn--than the last  pair--

Lots of 'life getting in the way' things happened this week here--two days with out Internet-- a power outage burned out the modem--so had to wait for a tech to come and install a new one--fire alarm shortages so one day all we heard was the alarms going off--a problem in the dinning room and we only got 'cold' lunches for 3 days-- and on and on it goes!!!!

HERE'S A BIG HUG TO ALL MY READERS--SO MANY WITH COVID AND OTHER HEALTH ISSUES--I AM THINKING ABOUT YOU THOUGH--
HUGS, DI

Oh my goodness you have been busy. I love all those beautiful crafts. Wow! No wonder you can't find your chocolate. So sorry about the power outtage and all. I hope this week is better.
