More Summer Stitching

I decided to take a break from Lizzie Kate-ing and grabbed this chart by Shepherd's Bush out of my Big Basket of WIPs. I hadn't actually started it but since it was all kitted up I thought that was close enough to earn it a spot in the WIP basket. This is on 10-ct. Tula and I must say it's a nice break from linen. Getting three strands of floss to lay nicely hasn't really given me any trouble so I should be able to get this one done before too long. I believe Shepherd's Bush had a whole series of Be This and Be That so I might have to look into getting a few more.

We had a great weekend here at the lake! We managed to cram so much into it that it felt like a three day weekend! The weather was fabulous so we spent a lot of time outside. I think we ate every single meal out on the deck!
You gotta love summer!
We've been flirting with the idea of renting out our bottom floor on Airbnb so we spent Sunday afternoon doing some cleaning and tidying up in case we decide to pull the trigger there. Family came over for an impromptu pizza party Sunday evening and helped us make sure all the pinball machines were in good working order. We'll have two bedrooms, one bath, full kitchen, large patio, just steps away from the lake. Plus pinball, foosball, ping pong, and free parking! Sounds like a great place for a vacation to me! In fact, this whole area used to be a resort back in the early 1900s. Next door to us was the old WigWam Hotel and where our house is was the annex where the hotel employees lived. Down the street was a dance pavilion where they played big band music. There is a lot of history in this area.

Time for lunch and then I'm heading out to the deck with my stitching!
