Do you ever get caught up???

It seems like I am always in 'catch up' mode, but at some point I do get to where I am back into a normal routine - whatever normal is!!

I am soooo far behind in my blog reading, but I am working my way through all the wonderful blogs that I so love to visit. I am not leaving messages on all, but know that at some point I will drop in.

My yard is looking pretty good - have been trying to get out there in the mornings a few days a week, need to take the camera out with me one of these times - but have to wait until daughter comes home from her vacation - she took my good camera and left me my good little instamatic!

Just two shots of my 'Wild Berry' strawberry pincushions from BBD Joyeux Noel book.
These were gifts - look how cute the packaging is - I picked the bags up at Michael's way long ago - it is a Martha Stewart product. It is a clear cellophane bag with pretty cardboard insert with holes punched at the top and then when filled a ribbon fits into the top to secure.
Since July is my 'Christmas in July' stitching month (actually anything holiday) I am working on Wiches Hollow by The Primitive Needle and would like to get Tis the Season done, but I am thinking that would be wishful thinking. I will continue to stitch Holiday things til December.

Have some exciting news that I will share with you all hopefully tomorrow when I find out if everything falls into place!!! I won something!!!

Have a great day everyone and thank you for stopping by - I appreciate it --- Roberta

I so enjoyed reading your blog! Your strawberries are wonderful! Also loved seeing your pics of your trip! My DH and I went on the Silver Needle Med Cruise in June and saw some of the same sites you did.......was fun to see places I recognized! Wasn't it amazing to actually see, for instance, The Pieta, in person? I never thought in a million yrs I'd see some of those things. We didn't get to Paris, would love to go there sometime!

And what a pretty photo's of your vacation. I have to go to Italy once..
