Hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday.I am trying to be productive in this heat and humidity. Granted we are not having triple digits and we have power. Well that just puts it in perpesctive....hmmmm.
We keep the house closed up during the day with the blinds and curtains pulled tight, this helps keep it some what cooler. We do have a window unit in the bedroom, keeps the dog and cat cool in the heat of the day and allows us to sleep without going crazy.
I cannot stitch in the heat or concentrate on much of anything for that matter. Last night I retreated to the bedroom in the AC and set up to do some stitching in my sitting area. I was pleased to get the roof on the "Governor's Palace" in block two of my HRH Christmas. Hope to work on it again tonight.
Will post a few pictures soon. I also finished the stitching on my I MISS YOU for the Navy Girl. I am very pleased with the over-one heart I added. I found a place in Milbridge, ME that sells the balsam filler, so I am going to make a balsam pillow out of it for her. Oh how we love that smell.
Plan to stop by the local quilt store to check out fabric for the back. I have a swatch saved online from Jo-Ann's but want to shop local first.
It's only 5:45 AM, so I guess I'll get my coffee. We plan to pick a BUNCH of raspberries from our bushes this morning. One good thing about the heat, they are starting to bust out with fruit. The veggies in the garden are getting closer to baring.
Have a wonderful day and hope everyone finds a bit of relief from the heat.
P.S. Still too hot to hook!
