Saturday Finish!

Hello Folks!

Long time no see?!?! I've been a little MIA over the last couple of weeks haven't I? Shame on me, life just gets in the way sometimes I guess.

It has been unbearably hot here for the past couple weeks... lots of humidity... high temps... I shouldn't complain but I can't help it. When it is too humid to sleep, well that just makes me cranky. Beyond that, not much to report! My summer has been flying!

I have managed to complete the June wordplay I was working on over the past couple of weeks this morning in fact. I love the way it turned out I have to say. When I get around to turning it into something I'll post another pic :)




Isn't she sweet! Leia is probably the most easy going dog I've ever seen and always has her nose sniffing. I don't think she quite knows that to make of my cross stitch from the looks of the picture I think. Haha. 

The last time I posted I remarked on the blueberries that were growing in about the house. They were abundant then and they're still pumping out the largest blue berries I have ever seen in Newfoundland. Well we've made lots of muffins and pies at this point. When looking for something to bring to a party tonight the BF thought it would be an excellent idea to make a Blueberry Crumble out of the berries we picked a couple of days ago. Here's the final product:



Boy! Do I ever have a great BF :)

Now that I've got your mouth watering I'll say goodbye for today.

Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!

  10. Your June Word Play finish is adorable! I just bought it, too, but plan to wait and stitch it next June. It must be wonderful to be surrounded by all those juicy blueberries in Newfoundland! Enjoy :)

  11. That blueberry crumble looks amazing. Warm with a little ice cream.....now I'm hungry! I love those word plays but so far have resisted buying one.

  13. Such a lovely new finish. It's not always a pleasure to stitch while it's so hot. Except you have air conditioning, lol. We don't so I often have to stop stitching and get some ice cold water into my face and onto my hands so that I can continue stitching.
    That picture of the blueberry pie makes my mouth water. I have to go and have some ice cream now, lol.

  18. I am jealous of your blueberries! Blueberries are not common here in northern England, and so I have yet to try blueberry wine. Also, we have been having a dreadful summer, so everything is several weeks late. Ordinarily I would be blackberrying this weekend, but I am going to have to leave it till mid September. Bah! Thanks for the follow by the way.
