Not an exciting week....just the same ol' same ol'. Last Friday was SO nice that I shut our A/C down and opened up the windows! Ahhh.....and I'm still enjoying it! It got almost a little too warm yesterday afternoon but we stuck it out since they're saying only 75 degrees along with the rain they're calling for today. I want to enjoy all I can 'cause when I shut the house up again, it will most likely be for the remainder of the summer since hayfever season is right around the corner.
I finished five aprons last week...they are available at Randolph Mercantile! Look at this one...it's a pasta print. Wouldn't that be neat to tuck into a pasta pot, along with a bag of pasta and bottle of olive oil for a nice bridal shower or hostess gift?
I'm still working away at my 'Homeplace at Christmas' counted cross stitch...I'm anxious to finish this one up because I just got a new chart in the mail from Notforgotten Farm! I am SO enjoying working on counted cross stitch again!
Some time ago, I went thru my things, realizing that I couldn't do it all...I needed to get back to the basics...fabric, thread, needle....I don't think I could ever settle on just one thing....even though I still find myself overwhelmed at all the possibilites that just basic supplies can bring, I have my choice of works to do in a day! Sit at the sewing machine? Counted cross-stitch? Punch needle? Which I still have a punchin' project in the works but I've gotten so involved in the x-stitch project, it got set aside!!
Today will be a sewing machine day. I brought home a little homework....hemming a bridesmaid dress... a full three layers! So that's how I'll be spending my day today and I guess the sooner I get to it, the sooner it gets done! Right?
Hope you all have a wonderful day!!
