To-Do Tuesday 7-17-18 | Hello Summer

Hello, and happy Tuesday, friends! It was nice to finally catch up with you this week! The Mister and I have been busy running about and doing our usual summer stuff. So I don’t have much to show this week, but I did have a stitching finish!

Stitch ALL The Things | Hello, Summer Finish

I finished Hello, Summer by Plum Street Samplers. I received the Form Letter from my son at boot camp that had all of his pertinent information, so I was able to customize the piece to include his Ship & Division number, as well as his upcoming PIR date. I really loved this stitching on this piece, and I think it turned out great. I still need to fully finish it off, and will do that when we return to Arizona.

Stitch ALL The Things | Grimes Ghost Progress

Since I finished working on Hello, Summer, I decided to pick up Grimes Ghost by Silver Creek Samplers again. So I will be working on that piece for a while now. Hopefully until it’s finished!

  1. Hi Christine! What a great finish! I’m not sure what PIR date is, but I’m guessing it must be when he is finished with boot camp? I wonder where he will go after Great Lakes? Are you going to make this piece into a wall hanging/framed or a pillow? Isn’t it nice to have a finish to share. I feel like I’ve been stalling out lately for weeks with nothing finished. Happy Tuesday! ~smile~ Roseanne


    1. Hi, Roseanne! Thank you! Yes, PIR is their Pass-In-Review/graduation ceremony. I should have clarified that! After graduation he is heading straight to Charleston, South Carolina. He is going to be going through the Nuclear Power Program and their education happens at Goose Creek. As far as finishing the stitched piece, I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do next. I’m rolling some ideas around in my head for a possible hanging finish.


  2. Thanks for the Great idea! My son decided to join the navy with September 11, 2001 and went to boot camp after finishing high school. He is now up for Chief Petty Officer. I love the idea of adding the personal details to this piece. I’ve had this chart on order and plan to do the same when it arrives. I think I’ll be leaving off Hello Summer. Love it! Thank you for sharing your life with us. Thank you to your son and all of our military personnel and family members who serve this great nation of ours. God Bless.


    1. I thank your son for his service! I really loved this chart because it had some great space for personalization. I did think about changing the “hello summer” to something different, but was struggling with trying to rechart the words. I’m not very creative with that part, so I decided to leave it since he went through boot camp in the summer. If he hadn’t done that, I would definitely left it off or changed it!
