So. . . to get myself motivated, I started a new project!
This is a Birds of a Feather design appropriately named Alphabet Sampler. Looks simple enough, a nice easy project to help me beat the heat and get back on stitching track. Famous last Betty words, "this should not take long."
Hopefully will have time to put needle and fiber to fabric while chilling and watching some of the Olympics. My Saturday "To Do" list has been long and unproductive.
The Dog Days (hot day time temps and afternoon showers) have the weeds and grass growing at super speeds. Cranked up the lawn mower, got one half of the lawn mowed before the afternoon showers forced me inside. Am sure the neighbors and community will be impressed with the half mowed lawn.
Tried to find some matching silk fiber to finish a project, but the dye lots did not match.
This weekend is a tax free shopping weekend and with the numbers of shoppers at the mall and in stores I was beginning to think it was Christmas instead of Dog Days!
