Whew! Summer is definitely here. I did go for a walk after lunch yesterday. Just an hour along the path in Oaks that runs by the Perkiomen Creek and the Schuylkill River. I was literally dripping when I got back to my car. And, I noticed last night that my shoulders had gotten a bit sun burned which is a no-no for me. I think maybe I should try to get out this morning before the heat of the day.
The good news is my floss arrived from the second shop I contacted. I called them last week and the floss arrived yesterday! So, Hallow Eden is finished:
I really like this piece - just quirky enough for me. Today I will take the time to go through my stash and decide what to stitch next.
Last night I managed to do both a little knitting (on the Hellebore Hitchhiker) and a little crocheting (another Granny Square is finished). But my hands felt sticky the entire time...just too hot.
The rooster up the street has been crowing non-stop for the last 20 minutes. Actually he crows ALL day long. Fletch and I often hear him when we sit on the patio in the late afternoon before dinner. Sometimes I think that rooster is like a baby who has his days and nights mixed up. Other times I think he just likes to hear himself - lol. And the catbirds that have come back this year are constantly fussing at Tyg when he is outside. It's enough of a racket to make you think you will lose your mind.
The hibiscus that Fletch picked up the other day is apparently loving being here rather than Lowes! I just took this picture a few minutes ago from our patio. Fletch planted it just at the front of our garden.
The picture is a bit blurry, but you can see how LARGE the blooms are and how many more have opened up. It is a show stopper for sure (and it was only $16!!!). Hopefully the deer will leave it alone.
That's it for me! I think I'll go through my stitching stash and pick out my next project.
