Buffalo Fire Boat

Joel has been back in Buffalo the last week.  He stayed the weekend to have some fun.  This was a trip to the Museum to pick up the model he is holding of the Buffalo Fire Boat.  My father in law this summer has been expending a great amount of time and energy into raising money for the upkeep of the Edward M Cotter, the oldest still in service fire boat in the world.  They were taking the model to an event where they are selling hats and t-shirts to raise money.

Joel is pretty proud of his dad and all of his contributions to the Buffalo community with his service to the fire department.

So if your in Buffalo, NY head to the waterfront to see this wonderful piece of Buffalo history.

Oh, and buy a t-shirt or a hat!

A little escape

to the Adirondacks this weekend with Nate to visit my Aunt at Big Moose Lake.

We took a few short hikes.  This photo was taken on the hike around Moss Lake.  There is precious little time before he heads off to his life in the Army and I am trying to spend as much quality time as possible with him.

He is such a happy soul and always fills me with joy and laughter.

This witch is finished

and I didn't even have to drop a house on her...

Off to a wedding.  Finally a photo with my lovely daughter in my front garden.

Got the hubby out of his t-shirts and into one with a collar, no small feat!  We attended a lovely little wedding at the Ithaca Farmers Market and it was charming and quite magical.

on the worktable

I picked up this pattern a few weeks ago.  I had the perfect fabrics in my stashes.

What has been happening in thread

This was from Pintrest and I just had to do the bunnies.  It was fairly quick

hard part was figuring out how to finish it off.  I see how people from Priscillas and The Twisted Stitcher are finishing their cross stitch projects in such a fashion as they can be switched out seasonally with their decoration displays and I love that.  My first effort is kind of clumsy, but I like it.
