The temperature is a little exaggerated.... but not by much. The outside thermometer is in the sun, but if someone was out there I'm sure the beating down sun feels like 105! Yuck. Here, in upstate NY we don't do hot like this. Generally, houses aren't air conditioned so, we suffer. Our window a/c unites are managing but we've already replaced one that pooped out Tuesday. And, probably, I'd feel quite a breeze if I stood next to the spinning electric meter!
Now, before you folks in southern climates laugh... keep in mind we're thinking the exact same thing when you get snow. Snow is what we do. We know how to manage snow and cold.... heat, not so much.
Anyhow, along with having to schedule our day around when to raise or lower shades to keep the sun out, what we can fix for supper that doesn't heat up the house, and where we can go that has air conditioning I've managed to stitch a little.
I started Jenny Bean's Christmas Sampler. And seriously, the designer? Shakespeare's Peddler, isn't it? I'm not going back downstairs to look. Sorry. Next time I'll be more efficient.
Then, on Vonna's blog, she was doing a give away of Little House Needlework's 'Summer House'. I love this little pattern, and since I have it, I thought I'd just whip it up myself. It really is a quick stitch... it's just me that's not stitching it very fast.
Lastly, here is my progress on The Library by Little House Needleworks. I'm doing a Monday SAL with my friend Rebecca. I love the piece and hope to dedicate some serious stitching time to it over the next few Mondays. I'd love to get it done and framed.
This weekend we're off to visit another college campus. Luckily, the weather is supposed to break.
Until next time, I'm off.
