Summertime HEAT!

Okay, I know that I mentioned (or maybe complained) about the heat in the last blog but who knew that we were about to hit the triple digits! Well, obviously I didn't. Guess I should pay attention to the weather a little better. It is even too hot to hang at the pool for very long. Even with sunscreen, my children and I are beginning to resemble little pink lobsters. Well, this means that staying inside and stitching is the best thing to do. I know that my skin will appreciate it. In case you need something else to work on during this lovely heat spell, look at some of the new items coming to the shop.

Summer has arrived! After a week of really nice temperatures, the hot weather has finally settled in. It is now time to stay inside (with the AC ) and work on indoor projects, like trying to find my son's room. That however, is a task I will leave to him because I'm too scared to enter the room. I plan to finish a cross stitch project that has taken far longer than it should have. I'm ready to start something new but trying to decide what to stitch could be a problem because there is so much to choose from. Take a look!
