Another Hot One

I have spent the past few days trying to catch up on some of my regular blog reading! I have been making some headway and it's fun to spend time with you all again! Sort of like a visit from a dear back door neighbor! If you haven't heard from me yet, be patient. I'm still making my rounds!

I have been doing some serious window shopping at some of my favorite home decor shops and my wish list has gone wild! I picked up the newest copy of Country Sampler. It was sort of a Good Idea - Bad Idea move. I love my magazines and this one always has some amazing home tours to drool over especially when they show off some wonderful stitching but then I tend to look around our house and wonder why I can't have one of those wonderful homes filled to the brim with eye candy! See what I mean. Good Idea - Bad Idea! *grin*

Our weekend was filled with doing errands again. No fun trips but maybe soon. I did get my camera back, thank goodness! I felt like I was missing a limb while it was gone.

We have been having some serious thunderstorms each evening which does help cool it off quite a bit but the next day is right back on the heat wave chart!

About my stitching, I have been working on it a little at a time. I finally figured out my problem. It happens every year around this time. For some reason (probably the heat), I just don't have any big desire to get motivated. As I said in a past post, these hot days just drain me physically and emotionally! That is why I am anxious for some cooler days so that I will once again feel like me again! I have been working on IM in the evenings and am getting closer and closer to the end! Here is a picture of her current progress and probably the last picture I will take (even once I am finished). It is hard to take an overall photo of this piece without parts of it coming out blurry. But I will announce my grand finish when it happens! Actually, I am further along since this picture was taken and I only have a very few stitches left to do before the big happy dance can begin!

Thank you so much for stopping by and brightening up my day! Your visits and comments mean the world to me! Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart!

Sherry it's good to see you back. We are baking out here in the southwest and it hasn't rained in months but hopefully soon! I have been doing pretty good with my stitching working on several different projects. As soon as you get IM done maybe you'll get a case of 'startitis' and that will motivate you! Stay cool!

I love your A Mind! It's beautiful! I agree that the summer can mess you up stitching wise. As long as you're content, that's all that matters. :)

Littlebit said...

Sherry, me too. I can hardly wait for fall--even after telling people in the winter to remind me when I say I'm tired of the heat!

IM is coming along nicely. Any clue what's next?

Sharon Bloom said...

well, you motivated me to go look at country sampler online! I might have to subscribe! :D

This hot weather sure can a drain a person, eh?!
The WIP looks fabulous

Deb said...

Oh, I'm so glad to see a picture of A Mind. I've been waiting. I definitely know what you mean about summer and stitching. I've barely done any - too many other things to do while it's light out.

Von said...

I'm feeling sorry for your folks in the high temps and high humidity! We're pretty warm, but with low humidity, it's not bad, and the evenings are awesome!!

Sherry said...

i feel the same way about the heat - it is not fun! I also feel drained by the end of day and that really bites since then I just want to veg and do nothing.

Brigitte said...

Your WIP is coming along great.
I also lost my stitching mojo when it started to be hot every day. It's just too hot for stitching.
