It's been a HOT and MISERABLE week where all you want to do is find a cool place and park yourself there with a cool glass of ice tea or better yet an ice cream cone. (I've had the ice tea and been really tempted to buy some ice cream)

It's been a busy week running family to doctor's appointments, chasing one busy 2 year old, trying to keep up with the housework :( mowing the lawn twice because it rained so much the week before, and of course then there is work...the actual setting at the boring desk job so what's a gal to do???? Well dust off the punchneedle and grab some floss and get busy doing something under the cool air~conditioner.

Inspired by the volunteer sunflowers that popped up in the fence row and the bright skies of summer these lil' sunflowers are coming to life.

Hope you are finding a cool spot to rest on what seems to be one very long HOT summer.

Happy Trails....Ginger

Hi Ginger,
I know what you me about HOT! And I think I have had enough ice tea to sink a battleship! LoL!!
Love your sunflower rug ... I have quite a few self sowers myself ... Just the birds planting their own food. Stay cool .. like that is possible ... And think fall :D

I always feel like such a wimp when I complain about the heat here in Calif. My sister lives near Durant and she was going to mow the lawn this week too, but the heat index was going to be 115, I used to go visit my parents when it was hot and it can no way compare with your heat. After being in Oklahoma heat, California neat is nothing. I love your sunflowers. Stay cool as you can. :)

Wonderful sunflower and perfect for the summer. I am still waiting for mine to get bigger, I think I planted them too late.

Well, this gal doesn't get to punchneedle while at work :( so do some for me too. The weather was miserable last week so about all you can do is stay inside. Have a good week.
