Another Weekend is here

It's the weekend again and been over a week since I have last posted. Seems like I just haven't had anything to post about. LOL
I am stitching a stitchalong with a group of stitchers from all around the world and I finished the first part. It is a Blackbird design called Under the Sunlit Sky and here is my first part finished. It's not a very good picture of it, but it's dark fabric and light shades of floss.
I am also trying to finish up LHN Autumn Sampler this weekend. I would like to get it done so that I can at least have a finish for this month.
I have already finished the Spring and Summer one.
My son and his family are going to be spending the night tonight after attending a barbeque at a friends house. Since they live an hour and a half away and DS only has one day off a week right now, it's not often that they get to come here. We usually go to their house to visit. I bought lots of goodies at the grocery store after work today to feed the grandkids! Maybe I better wait until they are ready to go home, so I don't get them high on sugar before bedtime.

Busy Weekend

We usually work on weekends and never really have much scheduled to do, but that was not the case this past weekend.
On Friday evening we attended a retirement party at Trailhead which is a restaurant/microbrewery. Had a great dinner and there was a great turn out for the party. It was for DH's store manager that retired about 3 weeks ago.
Sunday we had tickets for the Rams football game. They turned out to be great seats on the 50 yd line and on the club level where all the companies have their private boxes. At least they weren't in the nose bleed section like our tickets were last December when we attended a game. Afterwards we went out to eat and had a steak dinner at O'Charleys.
Today I only had to work and do Time and Attendance, so that means I got off at 9am. I am spending the day catching up on laundry and other chores around the house that didn't get done this weekend. This evening I have stitch club and tomorrow I am off. Should give me plenty of time to catch up and get some rest so that I am ready to go for the rest of the week!

Saturday Afternoon

Here is an updated photo of the progress I have made on Ocean Daughter. I have really been making great progress on it this week.

I am off today (Saturday) which is really unusual. I was going to do some laundry but found I only had enough detergent to do one load, so guess I need to make a run to the store to get more-Darn! LOL That leaves more time to do some stitching on this rainy and overcast day. It is really starting to look like fall outside.

I picked up a new piece of linen at LNS on Tuesday to stitch Sea Stars on. Every time I stitched on it, I thought about how I didn't like the fabric and didn't want to put any more time into it since I wasn't happy with it. I picked up a very nice piece of 32ct Sand Belfast linen. Now I have to start it all over. I think I will start in the top left hand corner, so I won't be stitching the same motifs over again that I had already stitched. I thought that would be a better approach to it so that I wouldn't get bored doing the same parts over.

Found out that DS just got a promotion at work, so I am excited for him. It should really help them out since he will have better hours, more money and other nice perks.

Labor Day Weekend

Well, it's the last summer holiday of the season. Now we can start looking forward to cooler Fall days and nights. (I hope) LOL

I do have to work on Monday, but will be off on Tues., Sat. and Sun. of next week. On Tues. we will go see the grandkids. Haven't seen them in two weeks, so really need my Nana fix!
Tuesday will be my parents 57th wedding anniversary. Wow, that's a long time!

I have had a finish since I last posted, but haven't had a chance to upload a picture of it yet. It is LHN Summer Sampler. I am now caught up on this series until the Autumn one is released. Looking forward to receiving that one.

I have been reading a lot more lately and finished up 3 books in the last 2 weeks and have started on a 4th. I also have 2 more on reserve that I need to pick up at the library either today or Tuesday.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day weekend and the cooler days also.
