After four days of triple digit temps, we finally have relief from both the heat and humidity. Hopefully, it will be a while before it comes back. Now if only we could get some rain!

Before I left for the retreat, I took Celeste to the groomer's for her summer 'do'. I actually got to talk to the groomer's afterwards (usually they're gone by the time I pick her up).
I asked how well behaves while getting groomed. I told them about how she loses all muscle function (lol) whenever I try to brush her and will not stand up. They told me she stands up for them. The little bugger!!
As you know, I was notified at the beginning of June that I was a winner of a prize package hosted on the DMC blog. After I got back from my retreat, I received an email saying the package was still sitting in their warehouse because they needed a street address. Well, it finally arrived!
Japanese Garden was pulled out of hiding. I worked almost all of the specialty stitches in the upper right corner ornament... 35+ queen stitches, 3 rhodes stitches, 11 sets of satin stitches, and lots of straight stitches for pine needles. I'm excited that I'll be done with this corner soon. Woo Hoo!
Here's what it looked like before:
Until next time,
