Dog Days of Summer........

It's been an incredibly long streak of upper-90's and I'm sooooo tired of it.  It saps me of all energy and there's so much I need to accomplish.  Why is it that when you have crummy weather and need to stay inside, it's so hard to have any ambition?????  It has taken all my energy to just keep things watered (not an easy task)!!!!

So this is some of the handwork that I've managed to finish.

I found the wonderful early blue dough bowl and decided to fill it with rag balls.  Love that blue is showing up again.  The black cats and pumpkins are just a primitive idea I saw and wanted to try.  We'll see if customers like them.
I made two of these pillows last year and sold them.  They take a lot of time but I love making them.....


 
I have company coming next week.  Barb lived in the little town of LaRussell with us and we were very close.  She sometimes stayed with us while her parents traveled for their business.  She lives in California now but loves to come back for our reunions.....this is her 50th high school reunion.  This time she's bringing her daughter for a first-time visit.  So next week is packed full and the next week we'll be getting ready for our Fall Open House.....
 
 
It's called "never a dull moment"!!  Hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!!!!

Cute stuff. Especially those pillows! We've had high humidity here the past two weeks. The dewpoint yesterday was 77% -- absolutely miserable. Can't bear to go outside at all. Have been inside all weekend, crocheting and puttering, but back to school tomorrow. Have fun with your friend. Best wishes, Tammy
