I never in my 66 years can remember a summer like this. It has been so incredibly hot and the earth is so dry that it's cracking. My yard is brown and I'm watering continually. It makes me lazy with no ambition. I'm so non-productive and this could be the perfect time to make some fall things (Fall Open House is just a few weeks away). Oh, well, I've taken time to read and it does take so much time just watering.
Judy and I did take a little trip yesterday and managed to get a little antiquing done. I bought a big bag of the greatest dried gourds. Also found some bowls and a few other things. Love the bowls. The larger one doesn't have a name on the bottom but has "made in USA" and a #5. The small one has a little crack but is so cute and great colors. It has what looks like PRP Co. Roseville and some numbers on the bottom. They're both perfect for fall.
My plan next week is to do some things out of wool for fall. I love doing wool applique but don't ever seem to take the time. It's hard to sell because it takes so much time to do it and it takes just the right person to be willing to pay what you have to charge. Also, wool is expensive especially if it's been dyed. Even if you can buy a piece of clothing or a throw in a resale shop, you still have to take the time to wash and sometimes dye it. Anyway, I'm giving it a try. If I don't sell it, they make nice Christmas gifts.
Hope you all have a nice weekend. Please say a prayer that we get some rain. The farmers are having such a terrible time. Peace!
