July TUSAL and Hermitting

I'm not even going to show you a close-up of my glass, I didn't seem to add much to it this month.  Although I have been working on One Nation...
... it's been slow moving!  I wasn't able to stitch the whole weekend, but got in some stars.  The blue I'm using doesn't look anything like the picture, it looks much darker and I'm not sure which one I prefer.  Oh well, too late now!
 Guess DH will be getting this for his birthday NEXT year since I didn't finish it by the 20th, oops! 
I hope all of you are as relaxed as this little guy is this summer.  But I think the heat must have gotten to him!

Belated July WIPocalypse & Philmont

I've been taking a little break from my Trick or Treat Fairy, October is still three months away so I think I'll be fine.

I started this one earlier in the year and made a mistake - put it away because I just didn't feel like dealing with those darn frogs!  This was supposed to be DH's birthday present, but since his birthday is on the 20th, I don't think it will be for THIS year.

On June 30th, my three men headed off to New Mexico for two weeks on their Boy Scout trip to Philmont.  They hiked over 84 miles in about 10 days.  No showers and no toilets - no way I could have done that!  I'm very proud of them and missed them loads!  Nathan and I had our own adventures, that will be my next post.

Finally home!
The crew
They came in late Sunday night and Garrett didn't even want to walk on the moving walkway!

And this is what I got to do today... clean these dirty, stinky, yucky, grimy, grungy, nasty smelling clothes.  So far so good, they're been washed twice with multiple cleaning products - two loads down, one in the machine.  What tricks do you have to get the stink out?  I'm sure this won't be the last time I'll have to do this!
