The Abbey- page 6 DONE!!!

I am so excited about this! Because my goal for this one for this month was to finish page 6 and with the exception of 7 stitches, I made it!!! What with all my playing computer games. I didn't think it would happen, but I did it! so, now I will scoot down and work on page 9, (the page directly under 6) If you followed my progress on "Howling at the Moon", you know I like to start on page 5 (dead center), and work my way in a spiral, clockwise. I don't know why, but that is just how I like to work these big ole' things!

I have to apologize for the double post of The Abbey, (meaning I posted about it twice in a row, without posting about the birdhouse in between) I have been working on it, but last week found a horrible error, and ended up pulling a huge chunk out on the right hand side, so while I did make some progress I also regressed as well (Is that the right word?) last week I didn't get my Abby post in 'til late int he week, so didn't get birdhouse up either. I think I have decided that instead of it being called "Cozy Re-tweet" I have decided to nic name it "Crazy Re-tweet", because I feel like I'm going crazy every time I work on it, somehow i find something wrong at every turn, or something! I am SO just about to call it quits on that one! And to think there are 2 more to stitch! NOOOOOOO!!!!!! I will have to be committed to the loony bin by the time I finish the last one! But! I have made a solid decision that I WILL have working copies of the pattern for the next two!

So, for sure I will be posting progress on Crazy Re-tweet this week.

My goals for that one for the month was to finish birdhouse #1, and start #2....didn't happen!!!
And for July I am not sure how much stitching I will get in, as it is a busy month for us, I have 4th of July holiday, Hubby's birthday, and our wedding anniversary all in July. And The hubs has decided to spirit me away to the beach for 4 lovely days to spend the weekend in a nice cabin overlooking the ocean. However, I was thinking about it, and this late in the game, I'm not sure he'll be able to get reservations for the cabins, they are usually all booked up for the summer! So, we will see!

That is all for us here. Looking forward to some (lots!) of family time next month!
Joyful stitching! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
