I hope you all have been enjoying your summer. I have been staying busy like always, but it has been a good busy!! My hubby is a school teacher so I have been enjoying his company and the fact that I can actually get out of the house. Don’t get me wrong… I love being able to stay home with Cameron, but I also enjoy getting out and talking to adults (lol). It is funny because when I get together with my Mom or some of my friends then I just talk like crazy. Some people probably think that I never shut-up (hahaha). I guess I just enjoy talking to other people other then little children. I am sure you can all understand that.
I have been doing my best to try to stay cool. It has been in the mid 90’s, but the humidity is what kills the idea of actually going out. It has felt over 100 and that is just not what I like so I have been staying inside and keeping cool. What have you been doing alot of people might ask and my response is “sewing”. I just recently adopted my Mom’s sewing machine and I absolutely love it. I have been sewing and making a few things here and there. I love wood-working, but with the heat the way that it has been….. I tend to stear clear from the garage and my work-shop. Anyway. I thought I would share a few projects that I just completed. I will be adding these to my selling blog in case you are interested, but that might take a day or two.
I made the towel and the ditty bag for my laundry room. I did not sew the stockings, but I am sure that is something I could try my hand at. I purchased my ragg tags from Susie at Yankee Lane Primitives. Don’t you just love them?!? Here are some more creations!!
So…….. as you can see I have been staying busy. Alot of you have asked what my sewing machine and work area look like and here are a few pictures of what it looks like today. Messy, but totally enjoyable to be around.
It is probably a good thing I don’t drink coffee because if I did then I would be sick of it by now. I have been coffee staining fabric all day long. I made myself a make-do clothes line on our deck and it appears to be working just fine. My hands on the other hand are brown from the stain……. oh geesh, I hope that comes off.
I also had to show you a picture of my tobacco that I ordered from a fellow blogger and FB friend. Sandie was selling these tobacco leaves and I knew I just had to have some. They arrived in the mail last week. Don’t you love how prim they look?
As always I can never post after a long period of time and not share some pics of Cameron & Qbert. The boys are doing great. Cameron is just as sassy as ever and Qbert is so much fun. Good thing 4th of July only comes once a year…. our neighbors set off fireworks and poor Qbert has been scared to go outside at night to use the restroom ever since. Hopefully that goes away soon. They are best of buddies that is for sure.
Well, I better run for now. I have lots more to do. You all have a wonderful weekend and stay cool. Until Next Time….. Blessings Always!!
