July-x'mas ornament SAL

I did mentioned earlier that i've finished my x'mas ornament for July but haven't completed it off, thought i can manage it before the end of the month but i am afraid it is not yet done. Just haven't had the time to do it. Thought to post a picture of it though.

Symbol "X" Christmas ornament
The Sampler House
Just Cross Stitch ornaments 10th Aniversary Collections
32ct. linen
DMC 814

These pictures were taken last saturday. We've been there a few times before that already but it's the first time last saturday that i went into the water for a swim. I still find the water very cold, it's about 19 degrees!

As you can see Chris and his friend Mels are always together. I think it is now nearly two weeks that they are together. The last days, they've been with Mels mother as i had to work.

A couple of times they went the outside swimming pool here in town. Mels have a younger sister so his mother prefers to go to the pool rather than to the beach.

From the beach last saturday we went to Mels parents place and had a barbecue over there. We've just finished the meal when it started raining so we were not able to enjoy the evening outside, oh well inside were fine too but very

warm as we have to close all the windows for the mosquitoes!

Hope everyone is having a good week and thanks so much for stopping by.
