A couple of finishes - Can you believe it is June already

 I moved the last week of May.  I downsized
from a 3 bedroom home with a garage to
a 2 bedroom apartment.  I am on the 2nd
floor and when i sit on my balcony I have a
view of the smokey mountains.  It was the 
best moved i could have done.  I have 2
huge walkin closets.  They are filled to the
brim.  It is very hard to consolidate.  We
think we have nothing until we move.  I
owned a house for the past 27 years.  I had
no idea if this would be good.  But I have to
say I do not hear any noise at all.  I like
they apartment better then any house I
owned.  Its a great fit for me.  Things 
might change in the future but for know
i am very happy where I am.  Not much
stitching in May.  I did finish 2 sweet
lizzie kate pieces.  Both are from tiny
 After the big move, I will be on vacation for
the next 2 weeks.  It just so happened to work 
out that way.  I have to book my vacations 6 
months in advance.  Gods timing is perfect.
I took the time to finally join some friends
at the Tennessee Theatre.  Shame on me for
not going sooner.  I have been here since
Dec. 2012 and it took me this long to go.
I have been to many Theatre's in Manhattan
but this is the most beautiful one i have ever
stepped in.  The detail and restoration they
did on this place is amazing.  The first 
monday of each month there is a free 
show.  They have organ music and a 
performance of some kind.  This month
they had a group called Nostalgia, a
bunch of local singers.  What a treat and
did i say FREE.  I will definately attend
more events.

What a blessed group to be with.  We all met
at the Theatre and enjoyed the day.

I hope everyone is enjoying the Summer season.
I always do.  I will be heading to Asheville, NC
tomorrow and to Myrtle Beach, the 3rd week
of June.  Happy Stitching.
