Hello, friends! Another week has already passed, can you believe it?! These summer weeks are just racing by me. I’m not ready for it to be July yet. Plus, this last week… so hot, right?! I’m sure it was worse where you are since we are in Oregon, and it doesn’t get quite THAT hot here. Although this recent weekend we reached 100 degrees, BUT we had low humidity. Brad and I were ready to hunker down for the weekend, but we walked outside and told each other it felt like a warm day in Havasu. I still used the “heat” as an excuse to stay inside and stitch!
After the kids flew back to California, I pulled my Sleepy Hollow stitching out again. I’ve made some decent progress on the border, and an end is in sight! The border goes around the main image, but also continues around a quote that is beneath the scene. I think maybe two more weeks and this is done. Yay!
Not much else going on around here, other than we decided to make the upstairs bedroom the master bedroom. We aren’t able to move the current master bedroom set upstairs for a variety of reasons. Instead, we ordered a bed from Wayfair and a mattress set from Denver Mattress. They have different arrival dates, so it will give me time to figure out a dresser, side tables, and TV stand. I also need to find a comforter set for this bed. I really wanted to make a quilt, but that can’t happen right now since I left all of my stuff in Arizona. I WILL make one for it eventually, but it would have been nice to have fabrics here to figure out the color scheme for the room. Not that any of this is complaint-worthy. I’m super glad Mister changed his mind about the master bedroom, because the upstairs bathroom is bigger than the tiny one downstairs and it all feels a lot roomier up there than downstairs. I’ll post pictures if I’m able to get the room completed before we leave.

You really made a huge dent in this project. The heat has to be good for something, and nothing other than stitching or sewing comes to mind. Great job! ~smile~ Roseanne
I thought I had responded to my messages for the week, but just realized I had not! Oops!! Yes, I love when the weather promotes staying inside and crafting! haha!
You know Oregon and Mother Nature are at odds when The Valley is hotter than the Eastern Side of the state! 😀 We’ve been up there, too, and I’m loving it (finally)! I think Sleepy Hollow is my favorite piece of stitching you’ve made (that I’ve seen, anyway). It is absolutely gorgeous, and I can’t wait to see it finished!
I’m so sorry for not responding sooner, I honestly thought I had already responded! Oops! This warmer weather has been wonderful! It’s not very humid for us, so to us it feels amazing outside! Sunny and just perfectly warm. I can’t wait until we get to be up here for more than two months!
Your cross stitch project is so pretty! I love how the border is coming out! I’m falling behind in everything! Hoping to link up tomorrow night! :0
