Keeping Busy and Beating This Heat!
It's been scorching hot and that is no lie. We are in an extreme heat wave. It's just miserable. I did mow the yard last night just to straighten things up a bit and it looked like a big dirt cloud following me.
So what to do with time spent indoors....Sloan is content with playing, watching movies, and having a book read to him. In between and late into the evenings I've been working on oxford punching, rug hooking, embroidery, applique, and painting.
I drew up the chick setting on her nest this afternoon and with my trusty oxford punch she was done in just a couple of hours.
This rug was peeking out from my UFO stack calling to me. It's a pattern by Star Rug Company and it's back on the frame and I'm wanting to finish it up to enjoy this winter....ahh for a winter's day!
I did finish up another hooked rug just need to get it bound. I'm still working on having a giveaway....just need to finish up a thing or two.
Time to head back to the frame and pull a few loops.
