Dream a Little Dream

Standard

I don’t think I’ll miss the heat and humidity as the last of the summer holidays ends today. Not to say it won’t get warm again (maybe 90 for a few days in the middle of the week), but it’s not the same kind of heat as July. And I know I won’t forget the heat that we are endured at the Phillies baseball game on the 26th of July.
I made a picnic dinner-potato salad, sliced tomatoes, green beans, strawberries, biscuits and grilled chicken-very yummy.
For my collage-I had saved this page for a 1957 Childrens’ music book and added pretty scrapbook paper for the back, some homemade paper from me where the ants are and some very modern puffy stickers.
I’m a bit bummed as the cross stitch piece I am working on wasn’t measured correctly and there is too much space on the top and not enough on the bottom. I will probably have to rework a bit of the chart there. I am so mad at myself for not checking it better and that’s after I’ve done almost half of it. I never cut fabric big enough as I hate wasting fabric which is a bad idea. The fabric I am using tends to unravel and I have to sew around the edge. So frustrating. And to boot, it’s for my mom who isn’t bothering with me. : (
This will be a short week for most people. So much is going on this weekend coming up it has my head spinning! The Mushroom Festival starts on Friday and lasts until Sunday.
