French Chicken and Dried Rose Petals

Ok -- if that didn't get your attention -- nothing will!! And no -- it's not some gourmet overprice recipe for disaster either!! lol I received the most wonderful card from Alice in France. Inside were some beautiful dried rose petals and a chicken magnet. And it's the CUTEST chicken magnet ever!! I love it Alice and thank you so much for thinking about me!

I know that I have been quite lazy for the past few weeks. Just been stitching and having a good time. The family reunion went over well -- and I actually swam in my new suit. We saw a bunch of family, and one uncle didn't know who I was. Such a good feeling!! No one remembered to take a camera so no pictures :-( ... hopefully next year. But let me tell you what -- it was freakin hot !! 104 degrees -- thank goodness for air conditioning! Everyone agreed that next year's reunion will be in April when it's still cooler.

I hope that your 4th of July was a good one for my US readers. It was HOTTER than blazes here again -- over 100 degrees. But a good time was had by all. Our city throws a big shindig. On Friday night we had The David Glen Band (local talent) and the Bellamy Brothers. It was a great evening for singing and entertainment. It got cooler in the evening time. Then on Saturday we had a menagerie of entertainment... from Zydeco to Country ... later that evening we had John Michael Montgomery in concert!! And of course a fireworks display... we are lucky enough to sit in our front lawn and see the fireworks. After it's all over - we grab our chairs and head inside ... no fighting traffic!!

I hope that you are enjoying some of my latest finishes. I hope to be able to complete them into a few ornies and such this summer -- but one never knows! Been reading much this summer? The last book that I read was "A Southern Belle Primer or why Princess Margaret will never be a Kappa Kappa Gamma" by Maryln Schwartz. Such a good read and funny to boot! Well I hope that you are having a great summer!!

Keep Stitching or Reading or Staying Cool or ...
