Got Some Catching Up To Do

I had four days off this holiday weekend and you would think I would have blogged before now.
It started with having a little house guest come on Thursday.  
She is a friend's sweet little girl Shih Tzu.  
Henry Ford and Buster are quite rambunctious and scare the daylights out of her.  
She seems to be getting over it but, the first day it was trying to keep HF from running her over. 
Then is was doing stuff around the house but, didn't get as much done as I thought.
Could it be I am slowing down?  

Then on Saturday afternoon, I decided to take inventory of picture frames.  
I move stuff around, especially seasonal.  
I have ready made frames and some frame parts.
I wanted to get some framing done and had to see if I had frames.
 It was quite a project.  
I have sized everything so I know what I have available.
A few projects I cut the fabric a little short.
It will all work out.
Now I just have to stitch it all up.  

I am glad the 4th is over.  The local fireworks did shake up the dogs.
There were fireworks being set off starting Friday until 330 Saturday morning only to start back up early afternoon for the 4th.  
Needless to say, we didn't get much sleep Friday night.

Another Christmas in July at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe

Well got more stuff to do before I can stitch tonight.  
Thanks for stopping
Keep on Stitching


  1. Hope things slow down a bit for you! Wow, look at your frames! I look forward to seeing what you stitch for each of them.

    Enjoy your week!

  2. The Fourth of July celebration in our neighborhood begins on the second and extends through the sixth! At 2:00 a,m, on the fifth I was done with the celebrations! No, you are not slowing down just organizing and like most of us got more projects than time

  3. The little girl is so cute.
    You have a good selection of frames for your projects.
    Have fun framing them!

  4. What a cute houseguest! My dogs don't like fireworks either, and if I had my way they would be banned...especially for private use!
