Happy Father's Day.....


I wasn't able to spend Father's Day with my dad today, but I was able to visit him yesterday while I was in town.  I brought his gift to him and visited with him.  My mom wanted him to open his card right then, but my dad is like me and can wait til the actual day to open his presents!  We had a great time seeing each other!!!

I felt really bad for my husband as we were driving back home from vacation, and he spent 5hours driving us on his Father's Day.  I offered to drive but DH gets bored being the passenger.  Not to worry, we did spoil him when we got home and after we all unpacked from vacation.  DH got the movie Hacksaw Ridge and a card from the kids.  I gave him a cross stitched picture which I don't have photographed yet, but I will share soon.  I also gave him a card and some restaurant gift cards.


He is such a wonderful and loving husband and I was going to take him out to dinner.  However, after spending so much time in the van the past couple of days coming from Florida to Tennessee and then on to Ohio, he had enough of being in the car and riding.  So I just fixed dinner for him instead!!!  But we will go out to dinner one night this week to celebrate!!

I found these 2 pictures that decribes him very well!


Have a great Father's Day!!!!

Freebie Chart Friday......

I thought I would try something new by offering a free chart on Friday's.  I am sure I have PLENTY of freebies in my stash.

This is Samplers Not Forgotten newest free chart that was offered this year at Nashville Market.  Kimberly stitched this in the new Classic Colorworks threads that were released also for the Nashville Market.  Click on the chart to save it to your files.



Here is what the pinkeep looks like.  Be sure to see how Kimberly braided the threads to make the cording going around the pinkeep and made knots at the corners.  SUCH A GREAT IDEA FOR FINISHING!!!


Enjoy and HAPPY STITCHING!!!
