Happy Dancing in a Clean Garage

Or I will when it cools down!  It has been hot and humid.  I hit the final corner, cleaned the floors and made a trip to the dump.  Whew!  It is done.  In between all the cleaning and errands, I have been stitching.  Now I am working on a project called Java Block by Hands On Design.  This is the sides of the block and then I have a top and bottom to do.  It will made a square pin cushion when completed.

Dog Days of Summer

Well summer did arrive.  Hot, humid with a chance of rain.  I am spending time home with the air conditioner most of the time.  Not to worry because there is plenty of things to do around the house.  Early mornings are spent cleaning the garage.  It seems that over the winter things pile up and now need cleaning out.  After some time in the garage, I get back to stitching.  Last week I did get my Daddy's chair delivered to camp.  It will be my new stitching spot over there.

There is a book shelf on one side, a magazine rack on the other side.  Add a chart holder, formally known as a book stand. It is missing the writing table. The foot stool would hold a lot of stash!  Light pole needs some work and I need to fix the lamp shade. 

The Summer boxer by Lizzie Kate was finished.

The Just Nan tweet will require some finishing.

Then I moved on to Just Nan's Blitzen Glistens!

Hello There

I put the beads on with my morning coffee. I finished it at camp. I do live that place.  As long as the humidity stays low. 

Last night I was able to get a photo of sunset. It is so pretty.  The camera doesn't really show it.
 

I tried out Daddy's chair for stitching. Perfect.

Busy, Busy..... It Is Summer!

I did it!  I did it!  I stayed at camp alone earlier this week.  I didn't remove the sweat shirt until ten o'clock. It was a bit chilly. While there I took a photo of a sign my brother made for me.  Cute!

I finished yet another cross stitch project.  

Then I started yet another.

I need to spend time in the craft room putting things together.  The weather is turning humid again so I am back home. Today was 'Find the house!' Day.  Going to camp so often has me running through the house and just not keeping up with things.  Today I cleared the dining room table. That is a good thing.  I still have paperwork and the spare room to deal with.  Then, maybe, play time.  But by then the weather might be better and who knows.

Summer? It is getting away from me!

It has been a month?  Really?  Camp is awesome. I have been spending a lot of time there. Great place to entertain and stitch. The latest photo of camp was taken from the beach. 

I continue to work on the flag but I must admit that it was a bit boring. 

Then I moved to Just Nan. It us an anniversary biscornu. I just need to put it together.

Just today I finished the scissor pocket that goes along with it.

I also did some stash shopping.

Whew!  That is a lot. I am not sure who, if anyone, is still watching my blog but I will try to stay up to date.

It Is Cold Outside?

Brrrrrr. It was too. Old today to sit on the porch.  Rain and wind drive me inside at camp. Fire in the pellet stove and all was well.  InhVe to laugh because I had visitors in Sunday.  After a great lunch on the porch, it turned cold no rainy.  We moved inside with the fire.  The biggest challenge was to stay awake.  The sound of the rain, the warm fire and we all wanted to nap!

I will share a photo of the hat!  Happy Fourth of July early. 

I also started making bottle covers.  Since we are still using bottled water at camp, it gets confusing as to whose is whose.  

Over the last week, I have been busy with cross stitch. I love the American flag project.

Catch Up Time


I was able to finish the Lizzie Kate Summer piece.  I tried to set up Spring, but I am lacking a color so it went on hold.


That was fun.  Next?  One Nation by Bygone Stitches.  What am I thinking?  It is a flag.  Very patriotic. 

I also decided it was time to make the Fourth of July hat I found in the closet.  The hat was finished today.  I modeled it but the Blogger doesn't want to continue so stayed tuned for future updates.
