I am a firm believer in summer - I was born in the dog days of summer (August)....I absolutely love summer....hate hearing about/seeing kids having shorter summer vacations, the whole enchilada!

I joined a Christmas ornament exchange on 123stitch
:-) Our ornaments have to be completed and received by Nov. 1st to be eligible for a $25- gift certificate. That is not why I am participating. But when given a deadline, I have a tendency to be early.
I just finished stitching my ornament a few minutes ago :-) Not sure how I will finish it but am pretty happy with the results, especially since it was stitched 1 over 1 on 28 ct! I keep thinking I will never stitch that small again but off I go! Don't have much other stitching to show right now but my schedule has been rather hectic lately. But I am trying to carve out more time for stitching.
Anyway, not to write a book here, here is my ornament:
