Fresh Squeezed June

Happy June 1st everyone! I know I say this every month, but where did the time go? lol I hope everyone had a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend. I've worked everyday since last Tuesday so I spent most of my weekend at work, though I did enjoy a cookout/bonfire at a friends house Saturday night and a fireworks show Sunday night. Even though Memorial Day was yesterday I still want to say a big "Thank You!" to all of our veterans, those who lost their lives in war and those currently serving. I have several family members who are/were veterans, from WWII, Desert Storm and the current war in Iraq.


Since I have been so busy with work there has not been much time for stitching, though I did get the March square in the SanMan Inky Dinky SAL done. It was a quick and relaxing something to stitch last night. For now the snowmen are blind, but I will give them Mill Hill seed bead eyes when all 12 are done so I don't have to iron over the beads.

I also wanted to start the June piece for the SanMan calendar, but of course I only had one of the colors needed. It seems every new project I am missing several colors, so you would think I would have all of them by now! lol The piece is titled Fresh Squeezed, and is probably my favorite so far. It's a little glass of lemonade filled with lemon slices and ice cubes. I can't wait to start it!

Since I couldn't stitch, I washed my Baby today. It's been probably 2 weeks since the last car wash and boy could you tell, or at least I could! lol The only thing I didn't do was sweep the inside out, otherwise she got a complete cleaning. Now my Baby looks brand spanking new, I even got the wheel brush and rim polish out and deep cleaned the rims and took the license plate off to clean behind it and clean the plate as well. After all you can't have a dirty U of M plate! lol

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great day! Nick


  1. Your blog title made me laugh...too cute!

    Love the SAL...those are such cute designs....happy stitching..

  2. Your WIP is looking great, Nick! I think it's a good idea to wait on the beading! Hey, if you want to come clean out my car, come on over!

  3. Your SanMan piece looks really great! I love the colours so far.
    You would die if you saw my car. Outside's not bad but I'm terrible for keeping the inside clean. Do you rent your services, lol?

  4. LOL! Where do you find these SALs? I just love the snowman one. I want to do it too!

  5. Thanks for the comments of the SAL everyone!

    And you are all more than welcome to bring your cars over the next time I clean mine! lol I also washed my dad's and usually if mom is home I wash her car as well. I don't know why but I love a shiny, clean car! lol

    Cat - The SAL along with the other SanMan projects I'm working on (Calendar & Monthly Blackwork) can be found on the SanMan Message Board (http://www.sanmanoriginals.com/forum/). It's free to join and Sandy (the designer) puts the patterns up for free to the members. I don't usually post, more of a lurker, but as you can tell I definitely have a soft spot for the patterns and appreciate Sandy's generosity! She also makes other patterns available for free on the board and through the board's newsletter. The SAL before this one was of the four seasons, which is on my list to do at some point.
