This has been the hottest summer that I can remember in a VERY long time. I've been spending most of my time out in the pool trying to keep cool. Today is so much cooler and I can even hear the cicadas, a sign that summer is coming to an end. I usually don't hear them until mid August.
I recently finished an order for my fabric cinnamon buns, and started working on another Fall item - pumpkin with bats. The pumpkin and one bat are sewed and stuffed, but while turning the second bat, my hemostats went through one of the wings. Grrrrr, I hate when I do that. I just didn't feel like tracing out another bat, so put that project on the shelf until tomorrow.
While I was dusting off my dresser today, I decided to 'do something' with the tin can that I was using to hold my hair brushes and mirror. I had spray painted the can months ago but didn't know what I wanted to do with it. I decided to wrap it in strips of twisted homespun.
Now I'm looking for a wood jewelry box that I can paint and distress black.
Two of my sisters are coming for an 8 day visit in 2 more weeks. Donna lives in Indiana and Diane in Michigan. Looking forward to some fun times with the family!
Hope everyone is having a great summer so far!
