it's going to be a hot one

I've almost finished the lady in the Herb Gatherer. I'm just stitching up the lace edge on the bottom. I'll work on HoHRH for sure this weekend. :-) But I really wanted to finish her up before I started working on my next house in the evenings. I can't wait to add the bead details but since I'm working with a hoop I have to wait until I can put it on a scroll frame. I would just re-mount it now but I can't tote a scroll frame of this size comfortably on the train I have to wait and I'll plan on beading at home in the evenings later in the month.

It's almost the weekend and it's finally going to be HOT! I've been waiting all year for summer and it's finally coming. Temps in the 90's by Sunday. And as far as I'm concerned the only thing you can do when it's that hot out is stitch. :-) I do have some lawn work to take care of but I should be able to do that in the morning or late afternoons. And the pugs and I have some agility work to do but again, early mornings and dusk is best for that when you have short nosed dogs. Pugs overhead easily and both of my agility pugs love it so much they will work themselves into a lather if I don't watch it.

Have a great weekend!

She is looking so great! We're going to have hot weather up here too - first time this summer for 90 degree heat - storms too - something we haven't seen almost all summer. Enjoy your weekend with the pugs!

I love your stitching progress! I have to admit it's not been real summer weather around here either. But I'm not complaining. Who wants temps in the 90s? Not me! lol! Although I admit it gives one the perfect excuse to stitch. So -- well enjoy it anyway! :D

You do beautiful work. Found your blog via CarolinaStitcher. Saw your profile pic of the pugs and couldn't resist taking a peek. I'm a pug mom too. Currently have only 1, Lester. He's currently sucking up the a/c after our morning walk.
