A Quiet Sunday Afternoon

The weekend has been different then what we thought it was going to be. The t-ball game was cancelled because they didn't have enough players and then the horse show got cancelled because of the rain.
We have had a stormy weekend and have a possibility of some more later this afternoon.
Hubby went with our son this afternoon so I am enjoying some quiet time. I have been embroidering some and I listed some new items in my etsy shop.
I finished my butterfly and it is now in my etsy shop. I was happy with the way that it looked when I got it done. I hope other people like it.
The bear at the top of my post is a birthday present that my son built yesterday at Build-A-Bear. He likes doing those for birthdays, get well presents, or for a little one who has lost a parent, grand parent.  It gives them something to hang on to of their own.
Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.  I lost my dad on Christmas day several years ago, but I would spend time with him when I would go home from school or go home for the weekend. I always would end up at the barn sitting on the steps as my dad milked the cows. We enjoyed sitting around the kitchen table with both parents voicing our own opinions and they would voice theirs. Normally we did what they wanted, but at least we were given the opportunity to express ourselves. I see so much now days where the kids don't express themselves. I don't know if it is by choice or not allowed.
What you think of my new decorative pot holder. They are easy to take to the doctor's office to work on while we wait. I hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday afternoon. Ours is hot and muggy definitely the right feel for the storms to pop up. We had levies brake to the north of us and I-29 is shut down so you have to figure out a different route if you are going north of us.
Looking out the window, the trees are starting to move so at least there is some wind. I hope we get missed but we will have to wait and see. Have a wonderful week.

It's so good to hear from you! You're doing beautiful embroidery.
I'm glad you are feeling good about closing your booth. That must have taken out some time to manage it. I like the Etsy thing myself.
Wishing you a terrific week!
