Bye bye July!

Happy August Every one! Oh man, was July a crazy crazy month.... But lots of fun! 
So in the midst of all the celebrating and traveling and fun with the fam time, I was able to get a little stitching in. I have 1 finish and 2 WIPs to share, so let's get on with it, shall we? 
First off I finished this guy (although I JUST realized, I still need to add his French knotted eyes) 
I think he came out pretty cute! That poor teddy bear in his pack looks very sad, though. Lol
Next up is Santa # 7, and here's the progress I was able to make on him:
I need quite a bit of work on him still, but there are large chunks of the same color in this one, so seems to be sailing along at s good clip. 
Next is DS2N progress. And I'm trying not to feel too disappointed with the progress on this one. But there is tons of confetti in this one and I obviously was not able to stitch as much as I normally would in a months time. So here it is:
I was able to get 4 full columns completely done and started the fifth one. Where you see my needle parked is the far right edge of that page. I am really still enjoying this one, despite the ridiculous amount of confetti in it. But! The result of all that confetti is phenomenal! So I'll just keep on plugging away at it. 

So that's all I was able to get done stitchy wise while I was on my blogging hiatus. I did have an awesome month, busy, but awesome! And now we are into August, and all I have to say about that is Roll on Fall! I am just through with this southern heat and humidity! 

Anyway, thank you all for spending a small portion of your day with me. I hope you all have a great weekend!
