well...this last week has been freaking hot (90 degrees) and humid (some days 80-90 percent humidity)....I have not been very motivated...but I did make these...


I actually made two...these are for friends for christmas and the material is "how to keep your husband".....

and then I made this one out of an old table cloth from my grandmother....and Lucy Ella decided that it is hers...



the other day we lost power for 2 hours (from an accident, the speeding young man is just fine...luckily....but it was still blazing hot and humid....)....and that meant...no refrigeration for 2 hours...Andrew pulled out the generator and gave it a go.....and it worked wonderfully and we we learned the coolers/freezers could go for 3 hours without needing a hookup....yeah!

this morning I was greeted by this lovely moth


it is beautiful!

so...I did not get as much accomplished as I wanted to...but I do have my apron ready for embellishment for "tie one on" june theme....home on the range....so a couple nights of embroidery and applique and I will have that one to show off....

as far as knitting goes....no luck there...I just can't deal with the wool...hopefully the humidity will break on tuesday or wednesday and then I will have some socks to show....

I am going to hide in our air conditioned bedroom....good night to all!

mmm...thundering and lightening! Yeah!!!! (and it helped cool off the freaking humidity....even better!)

I started my apron gallery...a whole 3 aprons so far....my favorite is this

It belonged to my grandmother, ella. I can still see her in it:) So, whenever I need a pick me up this is the one I put on for work. (and it goes with most of my summer clothing)....

I have started a pair of socks out of the shades of grey and red noro kuryeon I had sitting around. I am turning the heel in the first and realize I don't have enough for the pair I need to make, so I ordered more (along with 4 more colors and enough to make some more pairs...it is so chunky and easy knitting...a great break from the size zero needles)......and while I was at it...I ordered more yarn to dye....

and then some change purse clasps....I will let all interested parties know what I think (I have been desperately wanting to make cute little clasped change purses!)

Time to go enjoy a cooler evening....good night to all!

oh Kaffe...you've done it to me again!



mmmm.....okay....
today i finally got a chance to make a few more of the double wine bottle bags...there are no pictures since I am still not completely satisfied with them...and I also did some repairs I needed to do....

on tap for this week....

aprons...aprons...and more aprons....I am working away on christmas gifts and aprons for me for in the store....I might do a bit more on miss boos sweater but the weather has been terribly hot and humid so I haven't had too much motivation to knit.....

as for the magazines...domino is okay...I would buy an issue every now and then but I am not too nuts....but I do like violet a bunch and will give a years subscription a chance....

and alas, I do want my family to know I did enjoy my visit ever so much, I always hate to see everyone leave...I love ya all soooo much....:(

off to lock up the store...

okay...so the last post I was happy but why it published three times is beyond me and it only lists it once in the "edit posts" setting so i am at a loss...ugh...

things that were delightful today*
the girlie who said she would clean showed up and will come every wednesday!
dh is going running at 8 pm so I should have a minute to prepare some sewing
I got the snack mixes bagged and priced so I WILL have a chance to sew tomorrowart from miss boo...

things that are horrid*
day three without sugar!!!! I am trying to get rid of my addiction to the "white devil" and the dang sugar keeps tempting me.....pammy made peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and brownies with toasted pecans....ugh......(fyi...incase you don't know...we own a general store and I have access to oodles of sugary delights that I can get any time of day or night...not good!)

okay...off to set up the ir0ning board and get cracking!

night!
