Oh, the weeks are just flying by. Already past the mid-point of July. How did we get here already? It was another hot one on the north coast. I am so thankful I work in an air conditioned office and now have A/C that works both in the house and the car.
Took grandson Jake swimming today. Well, he swam, I did not. Still haven't gotten the nerve up to look for the bathing suit and actually try it on. He had a ball. His back flips off the side of the pool make me too nervous so I made him stop. I tried to catch him mid-air but could not.
My new old cupboard top. Not wild about it but it's a start. My collection of ironstone is pretty pathetic . . . I guess I'll need to do something about that and I don't care much for the coverlets either. A very small part of my stone fruit collection is on the third shelf next to a piece of Peaseware.
The large sampler was a gift from a former college roommate, many years ago. She and I have not seen each other in 20 years and are planning to get together soon. Stitched in 1984, it hung over my bed until recently when I replaced it with my Magdalena hooked rug.
Part of my collection of treenware ~ one of my favorite collections, picked up one or two pieces at a time.
Tomorrow evening is hooking with Katie at the Chairmaker in Vermilion. My next hooking project is not ready for the frame, so I'd better go draw a pumpkin on linen so I have something to work in. I'm not ready for fall ~ just a pumpkin is a no brainer to draw.
There's a relatively new blog in town. If you are a mom to a son or two, or just need a laugh, stop over at Janice's blog, the Rug Hooking Store. I'm sure she will appreciate the visit. Stop by her website and take a peak in the the rug gallery. I left with a serious case of rug envy!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
