Last night was Friday Night with Friends and I sat down and hand sewed the binding down on this new door banner. Check out what everyone else worked on here http://stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com.au/2015/07/fnwf.html
We decided to kick off our 4th of July Weekend early with a trip to our local drive in on Thursday night. Yes, drive ins do still exist in some small towns across America--ours has been owned and operated for 65 years by the same family. We enjoy going to the drive in, but usually they show kids movies, so we are not interested in those anymore. We watched a double feature of San Andreas and Mad Max Fury Road (very creepy).
We had awesome greasy cheeseburgers and French fries complete nostalgia.
Our daughter is out of town attending a college class in California, so we stole her Mustang convertible, Chuck, and enjoyed the movies under the stars. It was so nice to be outside in the cool air with my hubby. It was great date night!
I have been plugging away with my girl alphabet embroidery blocks. M is for Music is done.
N is for Nest--check.
O is for Oval--complete.
We have had some thunder storms this morning and it is cool and overcast--perfect sewing weather. I am going to make some fried chicken, corn on the cob, and even bake some dessert--maybe something with our fresh raspberries.
We plan on watching the Germany v. England soccer game today and the U.S.A. v. Japan tomorrow. I will keep stitching these alphabet embroidery blocks and have some binding--sounds like Slow Sunday Stitching http://kathysquilts.blogspot.com
I also have to get all my stuff ready for our retreat on Thursday--more to come on that!
