Before returning home daughter and I took time to shop the outlet mall and my favorite needlework shoppe-Cecilia's. ceciliassamplers.com
They carry a nice selection of threads, beads,silk ribbon, many patterns for needlework and supplies. I love to stop in and restock my threads and browse the great displays. I always find new ideas to inspire me.
I picked up kits for two cute projects- A cross stitched heart and a Funky
Flower pin. These are kits that came complete with fabrics, threads, trims, etc. If you look closely you will see a printing error. Daughter had to point it out to me.... See the Funky Fower pin?
A storm blew in while we were shopping and we got drenched. Had hoped for the same rain at home but upon arrival could tell we did not get a drop. At least this week will give us some relief from this 90's and 100 degree heat. So happy for this day of rest before returning to work tomorrow.

|The catch of the day|
Our evening was spent with the entire family which doesn't happen often enough. Dinner at The Landing Bransonlanding.com ending with an enormous slice of chocolate cake for our birthday girl which we all had a generous piece of.
Still adjusting to the fact that I have a 30 year old child. Yesterday brought back a lot of thoughts and memories of raising children and the good times we had at the lake. Now a grandson that is growing up fast right before our eyes. Good family time is the best. Even worked in a little stitching time!

randledesigns.com in Omaha a few years ago. Will post pics of the finished purse when complete.
Now off to the lake for a few days to celebrate July 4th with family and daughter's 30th birthday. Hoping for some relaxing time to stitch while there.
