Christmas in July? ? ?
I woke up Monday morning and realized it was July 1st. July 1st!!!!! With that thought, I had a mild panic attack. Why the panic attack? One half of the year is gone and Christmas is in five months! One of my goals for 2013 is to have a Christmas sampler. I started stitching Stacy Nash's Christmas at Hollyberry Farm in Febuary thinking I was giving myself plenty of time. (The secret to completing a sampler is stitching). Pulling weeds, transplanting perennials, and reducing my quilting stash have been consuming my time. So. . . I went looking for Hollyberry Farm and each day I have been putting fiber to linen.
Mother Nature is raining on someones Fourth of July parade today. For me, the rain just means more stitch time (and making weeding easier). With the rain and the arrival of a needed fiber, I plan to direct my attention to finishing the windows and raising the roof on the farm house.
Hope no one is allowing the rain on the Fourth to spoil their parade. Miss Liberty and I wish all a Happy Fourth of July!
