Stitch Heaven and a few things to show

 Hello all,

I can't believe that summer is winding down already. It seems like it just started. This is a picture of my stitching haven. I would like to make it up a few times a year. However this year I only made up once which is very depressing to me. Alas, I had a few days of relaxation, stitching, jetskiing, fishing, and watching the ships go by. I just love the water. I wish I could live on the water so I could stare it all day long out my window.

 Madison caught herself a couple of fish. She missed her cousin coming up to fish her though. She did OK on her own though.

The next picture is just to show you the ships that go by our cottage.  Madison likes to watch them. My brother has kept track of them ever since he was a kid. He used to write the name of them and where they were from in a notebook. Now that technology has come so far, he can now track them on the computer and find out where they came from and where they are going. Interesting!

 This is a little bookmark I finished when I returned. I want to say this is #9 for the 2012 Bookmark Challenge.

This is Bluebird from Blackbird Designs. I just love it. I started this at the cottage and had almost finished it. I finished the last few stitches when I returned. It was such a fast stitch and I can't wait to sew it up.

This last stitch was from Heart in Hand and I think it is an old pattern. I found it in my stash and thought it would make a cute pillow for my collection. I think it turned out really cute especially when I added the multi colored star. These will be so cute when I finish them. I better get to work with that because I have  several other things to finish before these.

That's all for now! Enjoy the rest of summer!!
