Lazy Sunday

Well today is one of those lazy days. I'm currently watching my parents house while they are gone for the weekend. I brought all my stitching stuff with me, but haven't had the energy to actually dig it out yet! I worked yesterday morning and this morning at my old traveling job. Getting up before the sun makes me sleepy about now. It's a beautiful day here in Illinois! I'm tempted to take my stitching out to the backyard, get some sun while the dogs snooze on the bricks. My boyfriend and I made our first big purchase as a couple. We bought a new digital camera! Not a point and click up a professional style. Thank goodness it has auto focus on it for me, I'm not as proficient in photo taking as the BF. He left for work earlier today and poor Rylee keeps looking for him to come back!

Rion (Orion) was trying to figure out what she was looking for!

I found another great pattern on Ebay for cheap! The cut-thru Lighthouse!

I just absolutely love these designs. It's going to take me years to get all this stitching done! I couldn't pass this one up though. The theme of my Mom's house is nautical, which is fitting seeing as how they live on the river.  Maybe I'll finish it before they retire and move somewhere else and get a new theme lol!

Well I guess I'll wrap up this wordy post now. I need to go out and water all the flowers (FYI there are a lot of flowers in the yard!) I'll leave you with this information sheet from my Stepmom. She leaves one for me every time I watch the house. They always look a bit different but I love the effort and love she puts into each one.

Have a good Memorial day everyone! I promise to stitch tonight and posts some pics.


  1. Great find on ebay and I love the to do list you were left.

  2. Great find! Now I'm going to have to visit eBy and see what I can muster. :)

  3. I love the picture of your dogs looking out the window! Hurray for the new Cut Thru' chart!
