Today is my 2nd day of a glorious 9 days off work and I have done nothing!  Oh, I have stitched a little and visited blogs a little and read a little but mostly I have been sitting on my butt doing nothing.  I have to say it feels good.  :o)  Work has been grueling the past few weeks and I really needed a break.  I have big plans for this week - don't know if any of them will happen but I am okay if they don't.  Maybe tomorrow I will be a little more motivated.
I am a little late but here is my TUSAL for July.  Lots of Mystery Sampler threads there.

I have some exciting news to share.  Berit has started her own design company Jaunty Fox Designs and is having a great giveaway and is sharing her first design with all of us.  I just love the design (it's Halloween after all) and her model is fabulous.  Please head on over and check out her blog and her first design.  You won't be disappointed.  I believe we can all look forward to more great things to come from this talented new designer.

I hope all of you here in the states have a wonderful Independence Day!  I am planning ribs on the grill with fresh corn on the cob, marinated cucumbers from my garden, and who knows what else might make it on to the table.  (That is, if I can get off my rump long enough to cook it!  LOL)

Sitting at home doing nothing is the best kind of vacation I think. I had 6 days off from work and it feels great. What have I done? Mainly stayed home. Its really too hot and rainy to go out in Miami during the summertime. :/ Enjoy your vacation. I'm sure you deserve it. :D
