Busy IHSW

I had a very busy weekend but I still stole some stitching time. Here is where I got on my Summer WordPlay...
I got all the blue done. I agree with a lot of the comments on my last post. I love DMC 995 too! Now I just have the boat part which is done in 321. I'm going to stick with it since it shouldn't take me much longer to finish. Just need stitching time haha.

Now on to my busy weekend. Friday we went down in the evening to my mom's old church. They were having a 100 yr old celebration. It was really nice because they had a lot of old photos, including several of my grandparents. It was really nice and we got to see some old friends too. Saturday Fred and me went truck shopping. If you remember his truck quit working and wasn't worth fixing unfortunately. We had been out shopping for trucks and it was sure a wake up call. We wasn't able to find anything we wanted and could afford. So Saturday we went to several more lots and looked high and low. A lot of nope we can't afford those either. We were worried we would have to settle with not being able to get a truck and that's what my hubby really really wanted. One last stop before heading home and guess what?!?!?
We found our new truck!!! It's a beautiful 2004 Dodge Ram. Fred is a happy little boy haha. Everything we wanted except for more miles but at this point we couldn't find anything better that's for sure. So we very excitedly signed the millions of papers and we are now the proud new owners. We traded in my van since I gave up driving. Now we just need to find a home for his old truck. He has a guy looking into it so hopefully he'll get it. Then Sunday we went down to visit my family. We hadn't seen them for awhile but we also of course couldn't wait to show off our new truck. They were very happy for us. So it was a busy weekend indeed.

  8. I love your Summer stitching. Those word designs really do stitch up quickly. Have fun stitching the boat!
    And well done for finding the truck of your dreams. I don't drive but if I did I'd be a nightmare choosing the right car for myself too! :)
