Froth and Bubble

This is my progress on Froth and Bubble.
That is all I have to show for the last week or so of stitching. But progress is being made.
Summer has arrived and my garden is thriving. Everything is sprouting and looking good. Unfortunately it will be awhile before there is any produce out of it but it is fun to watch it grow.
Coming up on July 9, 10 11 and 12 the shop will be closed because Dan and I and the dogs and this year Dani is coming too..will all be off to the Rodeo in Holstein Ontario. Our friend Bill does a bang up job of organizing this huge event for the Egremont Optimist Club and we have fun going there to help out.
This year Knowledge and Needles will have a small booth among the 40+ vendors. But our main reason for going is to sell 50/50 tickets for the club. Last year we, mostly Dan, sold over $7000 worth of tickets. That gave the club $3500 to donate to their various community charities and three lucky people went home with a nice chunk of cash in their pockets, one Friday, one Saturday and one Sunday.

The "tea" box is awesome - just great! Love your WIP too, it's coming along beautifully :D

Just wondering how much in advance you plan your weekend stitching GTG's? I've just found out I'm due for long service leave next year (long story, I thought I had 3 years to go yet), which includes a free ticket to LAX or London, and I'm dreaming BIG of a trip to USA/Canada, UK, France and Amsterdam ... and wondering if I could squeeze in attendance at one of your GTGs - this is all about 16 months away yet, so all "pie in the sky" thinking, but half the fun is in the planning! :D
