West of Scotland Weekends and a Finish

It was a beautiful weekend. Not warm but certainly nice and sunny. Much better than the weather down south where they have been getting terrible flooding.

We were down at my folks house for a bbq on saturday. Here's some West of Scotland weekend photos. The first on the way there, the second on the way backThanks for all the get well wishes. I am feeling a bit better now but still not 100%. Im throwing back the vitamins, echinacea, beechams cold powders and venos cough medicine!

I have a finish to show. This is for my friend who had a baby girl. It's a Lizzie Kate design from the "make it personal" series.
I am going to frame it and will post another picture when i do. In other stitching news i have been busy stitching my fair and square piece for Peg. I wanted to get going on this quickly because by the 12th August Donna's RR should be here and that'll probably take up a lot of stitching time.
Has everyone seen the Cross Stitcher's Lottery blog? Check it out here
Anyway, i can't believe another weekend is over. Mondays arrive far too quickly :(

I hope to get my rr in the mail this Friday! I didn't get a chance to finish the roof at camp. Sorry you have a cold. It's crummy to feel bad! Get better soon.

It's very cute. I can't wait to see it framed. The travel pics look great too. It's been rainy and gloomy for a few weeks here. I miss the sun.
