Oh my...finally getting back over here and I can't believe it's been more than a year since I've last posted! Time matter if you're having fun or not. :~O

This summer has been horrendous as far as weather...we are now into WEEKS of temperatures over 100 degrees and little to no rain. There was no wheat crop to harvest because of drought and it looks like no corn either. Even the corn that has been irrigated didn't make it because of the heat.

Summer is more least favorite season and I think I hate it worse every year. I've been trying to stay indoors as much as possible and have even missed some of Will's baseball games that were scheduled in the afternoon. Baseball season is now over and I think even the kids are happy not to have to play in this heat. Unfortunately football practice will be starting in about 3 weeks...hopefully they won't have to practice in the triple digits.

I have not done any sewing lately, but I have been doing some counted cross stitch. I finished a very old (several years) project and started a new kit. It's nice to just park myself in the recliner in the basement (nice and cool there) and stitch while watching TV.

I've been thinking about starting a new quilting/sewing project. The trouble is that I change my mind about once a week on what project to start. My latest thought is this Christmas wallhanging pictured. Maybe working on a Christmas project might make me feel cooler, haha.
