Stitchings I have actually done

This is just a small floral motif I did on a towel. A bit small for the towel, but I guess I could call it 'delicate and feminine' instead.
This little ornament is one of my favourites. I can just hear him laughing with glee as he is scooting down that slope on that saucer sled. It was a small DMC chartpak bought at least 18 years ago.

A strawberry fingertip towel that was a super easy pattern to stitch and a bright cheery spot in the bathroom towel bar.

Probably one of my favourites. Verse reads: "Take one can of biscuits. Twock on edge of counter. Bake in a 400* oven. Serve in a fancy basket."
Well that is about all for tonight. Still have devotions to do so I can watch Poker After Dark!


What would we ever do without air conditioning in the house?
We live in a 94-95 year old farmhouse. Yup, the house was born the same year as my Dad.
So, that being said, we do not have whole house air as there just is no way to install it without gutting the entire house.
We have a room a/c in the north window of the bedroom.
I can stitch again.
I have a magnifying lamp with a regular light bulb.
My beloved Daylight magnifier light died.
Well, the metal parts did, totally made a noise like a gunshot when the metal parts stripped and quit. The magnifier was still working as well as the light. But it just wouldn't stay up to swivel, nor stay put in the right spot, so it had to go.
The one I am currently using was a gift from the auction house. Bless that auction house. Bless The Lord. I needed a stitching light, and He provided. But in the summer, we have to have the a/c going because it is just too darned hot to stitch without it. Those little lamps do put out a lot of heat.
Not to mention not being able to sleep in this hot, humid weather. Hubby works very hard in this hot, humid weather and he really needs to be able to sleep. I also have a problem in that I simply have a problem breathing if it is too hot and humid. Plus being older, well, I thank The Lord for a/c and the ingenuity He gave to the person that invented it!
