Finally another cross stitch photo
I had planned to get a few things accomplished this month but then I got busier than I thought. This Alaska sampler is now at 62 hours completed. It's getting pretty close to being done.
My sewing machine began to make a scary clunking noise so it is now being fixed. So much for getting the pillow finished that I have been working on forever. My "to finish completely" list is almost as big as my "cross stitch in progress" list.

Camping was a blast!
Far too much food was consumed of course. There are 3 Filipino coworkers who cooked up a bunch of fantastic stuff. Eva just came for the day yesterday and she made up 60 skewers of pork satay for us to have for lunch. There was a ton left over obviously so we had them for dinner too. We also had the usual chili dogs and smokies either on the fire or various bbqs.
The younger part of the group ( twenty-somethings ) made several "bucket" drinks. Literally a plastic pail like you would use for a sand castle, filled with a 26 oz. bottle of some hard liquor ( the first one was Malibu rum ), various juices and ginger-ale, Sprite, or similar. A couple of handfuls of ice, 6 or 8 straws and voila! They tried to use the plastic shovel that came with the bucket to scoop out the bottom. T went and got them a ladle instead which worked better.
The rain dried up by around dinner time yesterday so we could sit around the campfire comfortably at night. We did the usual amount of tarping to stay dry though the rest of the time. Tarp ability is a must if you camp in BC.

Happy Birthday Dad
My father-in-law Helmut is 74 today. This photo was taken on our lanai in Hawaii. Opa and the kids are having a little bit of fruit for breakfast for one morning.

This little piggy...
is going to be donated to Canada Division of the Angel Quilt Project. Sorry about the blurry photo. I just finished up putting the white petite seed beads in his bandana in lieu of French knots. I loathe French knots!
