FlossTube #7 and #8 ~ Summer Stitch Day, then Pam & Steph Return From the Road

We attended the first of two consecutive Saturday Summer Stitch Day events, sponsored by Keepsakes LNS in Sharonville, Ohio.  Steph did a fantastic job cruising the tables, showing off the wonderful projects all the stitchers were working on. 

We had a wonderful day with all our stitchy friends. We laughed and stitched...well, probably laughed more than we stitched. It was a great day!!

The next morning we hit the road for Maine, hopefully to see my mom, Steph's gramma, who was in hospice. Sadly, she passed away that day, July 9th, at age 85. So the next week was filled with emotion and memories, and saying our good-byes. 

When we returned from Maine, we had LOTS (two weeks-worth) of stitching news to share!

Steph had stitched on her Tribal Hippo, aka Fiona, exclusively while "on the road" and during the week in Maine, and showed off her progress. And, yes, there IS room for Fiona's booty!

She also showed her progress on:

Sleepy Hollow Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery
Cow by Bent Creek
Christmas in the Woods stocking by Stoney Creek
All Hallows Eve by Prairie Schooler

Pam didn't get a whole lot of stitching done during the trip, but managed a few stitches in:

Canada Sampler by Stitchrovia
Birch Point by Charles Wysocki
and her
Remembrance Day kit

Steph showed off her latest finish:  Live Simply by Lizzie Kate. She made some great color changes on this cute piece.

We also showed our ornaments. We are all caught up for July!

Steph stitched "Hot Cocoa" by M Designs.

Pam stitched "Yellow Penguin" by Casey Buonaugurio and "Snow Birds" by County Cottage Needleworks.

Next, Pam showed off the piece she had just picked up from her framer at Keepsakes, Lavender & Lace's Angel of the Sea.

Steph showed off the RAKS and haul she received in the last two weeks. Pam also had a little bit of haul, because, let's face it, she's doing Stitch From Stash.

We ended the episode with talking about our future stitching plans, so stay tuned and....

Just Keep Stitchin' !!
