AUGUST IS A SLOW MONTH

for me stitching wise--
it always seem to happen this way too--
but here is some bits and pieces I have worked on!!

a bom block-this one has more stitching that the past ones had--

had wanted to get my scarecrow finished today
but then had to keep changing thread colors as my background fabric
is lighter in color than the designers was--and she had a very light beige color
for his shirt--so that took some time--what can I say--it is slow stitching Sunday--
after all!!!!

and I did get more hearts stitched lately--
Love the bright colors in these hearts--

and 2 more baby sweaters got buttons on them this morning--
and I just realized something--
they are 'orange--
and that is this months color--
love it when a plan comes together and --
I didn't even know there was a plan!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ENJOY THE DAY/EVENING--
      WHERE EVER YOU ARE--DI

COME FLY WITH ME--

up up up  we go--
into the clear blue sky--
you can fly  this one--
or--
you fly this one--
the oranges in this one are darker than it shows here--
I like both of them--but this one is the cutest one with those fishes!!!!

And while talking about 'orange'
what about a block with orange--
well and a little pink and gold thrown in for good measure!!!
I had 2 different orange and white prints picked out for this block--
but then this morning as I went to cut the pieces out--I decided it needed a bit
more color in the 2nd piece--
and here is the center piece--
this piece goes with the thread spools--and I had forgotten to cut the orange
center square--so decided to use a square of it!!!

So I got my Vitamin C this week end with all sewing I did with 'orange'!!!!!
what vitamin did you get a good dose of this past week end????

      ENJOY SOME GREAT STITCHING
                        THIS WEEK-DI

CAN YOU TELL---

that I enjoy doing a bit of counted cross stitching--
a couple mornings each week--
I have gotten all the letters in for the Summer sampler--
only now I have put it away and
and gotten the Fall one back out--
as I know I will not get summer done in time to display this summer--
but there is 'hope' for the Fall one getting done on time!!!

and of course --
can you tell that I am still in love with 'hearts' and stitching one each day--
or nearly everyday--
didn't get one stitched yesterday--
but I did do some stitching--
and those will be tomorrows photo's!!

someone turned the heat up  over night--
and summer slammed Florida full in the  face this morning--
(actually I think it started 'sneaking' in yesterday--as when I tried to do my walk early-
it was already too warm and hard to breathe!!)
today--it was hot inside toooo--even with the poor ac working overtime--poor thing!!!
(actually I will be the poor one when this months electric bill comes due--right???)
every time I looked out the window and no one was outside--no dog walkers and no smokers!!!

was a good day to sit by the ac and stitch and
watch the NASCAR race held at Watkins Glen, NY--
(where have I heard of that town before--humm???)
was a very good race and a fine young man won--Congrats, to Chase--he worked hard to win this one and it was his first win!!!)

ok--back to what ever you where doing--

ENJOY SOME A NICE COLD DRINK--
OR A NICE HOT CUP OF SOMETHING--DI
