Stitching Through the Heat Wave

It's been brutally hot here & really throughout most of the US these past few weeks. I've had a busy July, what with the 4th of July holiday, a glorious wedding, work on the campaigns of two local candidates,
Linda's surgery, a family BBQ, out of town family sleepover guests (twice), a christening and--oh, yes, work, too. Throw in my pulled hamstring (don't ask) and it's been a circus around here. This was my first free weekend in weeks, and when my husband suggested going to a movie tonight, I looked at him like he was insane.

Considering all this, there's been some stitching lately. Our class with Tony M at Stitch by Stitch was cancelled on Wednesday, so I found myself with a hole in my stitching calendar. I took the opportunity to finish the insert for my Lee's credit card case (sorry, no photo, it's already in use in my purse that's downstairs). I've started a new canvas for my Lee's bag as well. I finished up the 4th canvas in the Raymond Crawford calendar club from A Stitch in Time, & I've already started this month's canvas. Woo hoo! Big stash action!

Linda's recovering slowly; she's pretty limited in what she can do with that arm. Monday she'll see the doctor and start PT soon thereafter we're pretty sure. She's bored to tears, but is being a very good patient. I'm very proud of her discipline. I think she's going to heal up just fine!

It's going to be pretty warm here again I think stitching will continue. Next week promises the return of the insanity.....I can't believe the summer is half over!

We've been thinking of you and hoping that your arm progresses well and you are back stitching. Come see us soon!
