What I Did On My Summer Vacation


While on the island, I spent a lot of time just sitting back and relaxing.


But I'm a fidgeter and sitting still, not doing anything is not easy for me.


So I took my stitching case with me.


It was the perfect activity for me while there.


And I finished my Spring Sampler...


just in time for Summer.


Now I'm contemplating a Summer Sampler.
