Started a rotation

I have started a rotation to get some of my projects done now the question becomes, can I finish them? I know one I have to get done. It is The Wedding by Lavender and Lace. That one is a gift for my middle son when he gets married next year, so what I figured I would do is a week of the wedding, a week of whatever comes up next on this list then a week of the wedding again. So every other week I would be working on the wedding. So this is my progress so far on the Wedding, not bad for me since I've only been stitching it a couple of months
I am also working on The Watergarden by Chaletaine.

My rotation will be
The Wedding
The Watergarden
Christmas Tree 2008 Nora Corbet (I have several I want to do over time)
Flower Power
Saucer Magnolia The Silver Lining. I have on of these tree in my back yard.
Madonna Dalorosa---Solaria
Sanctuary--The Drawn Thread
Jingle Bell Xmas---Victoria Sampler
and lastly I need to add an angel to a RR piece I did several years ago, one of the ladies had to drop out and didn't get to do her so it's one short. These are the freebie christams angels from Lavender and Lace.

I will post pics as I work on these. Hope this works out I have a lot of UFO's and wanna stitch waiting in the wings :)

Vacation Pics

Had a nice time, as stated before, on my recent trip to Wisconsin. I tried posting pictures of the lake everyday to Facebook, cell service was spotty at best but I did manage to get one everyday. I have to say though that this one is my fav, I made it the wall paper on my phone, it was just the perfect shot.
There was a hammack set up and my oldest son Danny enjoyed it a lot. One day while taking a break, the guys were playing pranks on each other. My brother in law Rick decided to play a joke on my nephew and shot off a set of firecrackers near were he was napping. This of course gave my son Chris a idea, while Danny was napping in the hammock
Chris decided the best way to wake his brother up was to do the same thing. Poor Danny had known this may happen and tried to stay awake and fool everyone but the hammock was to much to resist and almost fell out of the hammock over such a rude awakening.

A lot of birds came by while we were working and one day a group of swans came by
which or course got the dogs excited, but the swans just sailed peacefully on by.

It really was a nice week, the only thing missing was my youngest son Matt, he had work and school so had to stay home and got tasked with dog sitting for Danny's dog and ours. Here is a shot of the rest of the Kupcho men.

I really am looking forward to going up there again. Probably not until next year though. No more vacation time plus the place it not winterized and gets shut down around October. Maybe after Chris's wedding next year we will be able to go for a week.

We are Back

We are back from our vacation. Well mine anyway, hubby says it wasn't one for him he worked almost everyday doing things to the cottage. I figure if I had to fly for 2 hours drive for 2 more and am not in the same start or town I live in and not have to do the things I normally have to do on a day to day basis I am on vacation. Had a nice time none the less. Got to spend time with family I hadn't seen in a while. Also learned that being around a semi construction site even if you aren't always the one constructing can be very noisy and messy.

I have some great pictures I will have to upload and edit tomorrow to share. I am not safely back home and tomorrow hubby goes back to work so back to my usual routine.
