The Dog Days of Summer



Whew!  It is wet outside.  Very humid, hot and now rain to make sure all is wet.  I hope the storms break the current spell and nice weather comes to call.  


I have been busy with my stitching and improvements at camp. I had aluminum stairs put in so we can get down to the river.  I have made it down there for a good soak once so far.  That project has kept me busy.

I started an Ort Box done on canvas.  Hours of prep work and the first installment are done.  There will be specialty stitches done in each of the squares.  It certainly has captured my attention.

I also finished the Just Nan Peacock Needleroll.  I just need to put that together.  I have found some time to spend in my room.  I set up some fans so I can keep it cool in there.  The Peacock project was a bit of a challenge. 

Next up I started an older Just Nan project called Needle In A Garden. I am up to the third band.

August? Where Did July Go?

So the bruises are fading from the garage cleaning project. I have focused inside during the worst of the heat and humidity..  Today I finally spent some time in my room.  I love putting together my little treasures. It took a few hours.  I also spent time outlining a canvas and then putting it on a frame.  

I have started work on a Just Nan, Peacock needle roll. I live the colors. 

Tomorrow I have workmen at camp so I will be over there and perhaps I will take some photos.
