The summer has gotten away from me...

Where has the summer gone?  Yesterday, I registered the kids for school, and that starts on Aug. 16th.  YEAH!!!!  Don't get me wrong, I love my kids.  But I'm a believer in year round school, and think they do much better at school.  I'm able to get more things accomplished at home when they're at school too.
The summer has been somewhat busy, yet we haven't done anything.  I started school for myself to get my Bachelor's Degree in Nursing. Then I've also restarted Weight Watchers at the beginning of summer.  I've lost about 20 pounds so far.  I'm thrilled.  Another 20 or so, and I'll be done, I think.
I've been doing some stitching this summer.  One piece, I was about half done when I found out that I counted wrong.  It was on LHN Liberty.  So I've put it up for a time, until I'm ready to rip it all out.  I was soooo upset.
 LK Peep
 PS Winter 
 LK Christmas Rules
LK exchange received from Lisa V
So here's my progress pictures and finishes from this summer.  I'm sure there's something that I've forgotten.  The last picture is of a beautiful exchange I received from Lisa V.  She did a gorgeous job.

The only other thing that has been going on this summer, is I've become a consultant for Thirty-One Gifts.  They have some of the prettiest bags I've ever seen, and I LOVE bags.  If anyone is interested in any, please let me know or you can look me up as a consultant on the website.  Look under my name, Melissa Cahill.   I'd be happy to answer any questions or help you with them.  They're having a special until the end of August...15% off of everything in the new catalog.

I will try to keep up on my blog.  I know that I'm terrible with it, but I'll try.  
Thanks for visiting!
