Two Days Until School starts!

Hard to believe that summer is almost over!! On September 2nd, my younger two will begin the school year. My oldest has another week, as she is starting university....

We've been busy...doing little day trips, shopping for back to school, the kids have been having friends over and sleep's been nice.

I've been busy stitching and working on my swedish weaving. I did finish up this cross-stitch and framed it. This is a frame I bought new, but I have been on the search for neat second hand frames and do have some on hand for future projects. This now hangs in my dining room. I just loved working on this one! It's "Sheltering Tree" from With Thy Needle and Thread. Wonderful, fun stitch.

Yesterday we took a drive to Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, and to the Swiss Air Memorial Site....for those of you that aren't familiar with the Swiss Air Memorial Site....a plane crashed off the waters of Peggy's Cove in September 1998, killing all aboard. This site is a dedication to them, and a place for family members to go and pray, or just sit quietly. There was a couple there when we arrived...the man was hugging the woman, and they were reading the dedication. I was wondering if they had lost a family member in the disaster.

Well, much to do today...I think I'll try and squeeze in a trip to the Thrift Store as well...if I have the time!

Have a great day everyone!!

Good luck to the kids as they go back to school. Love your finish - the sweet house and church (?) are wonderful. Thanks for sharing the pictures; the site is beautiful and touching, I'm sure.

Lovely little finish there girl.
Pictures are great. It gave me a chill to stand at the Swissair Memorial.
I have a swedish weaving afghan to have done for Oct 3 and I haven't even started it yet lol

I love your finish - it is so sweet. I know how it is when the kids are going back to school, here in Michigan we start next Tuesday! Lots to do before that day.

The pictures you took are beautiful.
