A Quiet Day, With Some Finishing

Good Morning!
I hope that everyone is having a great week. If you are in the US I hope that your 4th was fabulous.
My 4th was very nice and quiet. Rich had to work so I had the day to myself. I chose to stay home and watch the History and military channels Revolutionary War marathons and to work on some stitching.



I put my By The Bay Needleart SAL in this frame that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I am very pleased with it. Now I just have to decide where to hang it.
I finished stitching this Pine Mountain pillow.



It will go on my bed for the month with my other pillows.
I also did the finishing on my June ornament.



This is my Brittercup ornament from the 2008 JCS ornament issue.
So what to stitch next, I need to get some more of the over one motifs on Marietta stitched and I need to work in my ornament for this month. I also know that the LL mystery sampler will be landing in my mailbox any day now. I think I need a few more day off!
Thanks for stopping by and all your kind comments!

Happy Thursday!

I'll bet you felt great at the end of the day, Chris--three things finished up! Your SAL piece really looks nice in that frame and I love your pillow and June ornament. I'm so far behind on my Christmas ornaments, it's ridiculous!! Sure hope I can catch up one of these months :)

I watched the Revolutionary War marathon, too! Such a great series. The frame you chose is more than perfect for your piece. Really looking forward to seeing what the new ornament will be.
