There's not much going on at the ranch this past week or so. Crafting has taken a back seat to a lot of things - primarily because I'm like a walking zombie with lack of sleep. I have to thank those who offered suggestions on tackling the insomnia thing. I'm trying them, and so far not much has helped. The high heat around here and an ancient A/C unit doesn't help matters much either. But I've gotten a little bit accomplished:
I started a new sampler:
The Apple Tree Sampler
Please ignore the hoop marks. I usually don't stitch in a hoop, but lack of sleep has rendered my brain unable to stitch pieces of fabric onto scroll rods or rather the patience to do it - plus the design is pretty small anyway. How I've even stitched this far is beyond me.
On one of my more lucid days I got these done:
So that's been about it for me. I feel like I've accomplished nothing! I did have a funny moment this week from Kim. Kim is Ms. Thrift Shopper Supreme. She finds the greatest things. One of the things that she collects are orphaned salt and pepper shakers. When I'm out and about and I see an orphan I always think of her and her collection and pick them up for her if I think she'd like it. Well, I found this one recently (sorry Kim I stole the picture from your blog) and sent it out to her:
Almost immediately the box that I had sent her arrived back in my mailbox with this:
An oil can, in my box and with my note! LOL I really got a kick out of this. I told her that this will be come the official mail box and note for mailing those orphans. Kind of like a Traveling Pants kind of thing. Thanks so much Kim - I've been searching for one in the lighter color!!! Now, about that needle punch piece I'd like to put on it.............
Hope that everyone is staying nice and cool. We're really going through a heat wave here in Michigan and I guess today is suppose to be the hottest day - a cool down for a couple of days - and then right back at it! UGH!
Thanks again for all your wonderful comments and for following me. I really am tickled each and every time I read your comments. I know that I've met some of the most wonderful friends through blogging and always love seeing the things that everyone makes. You're truly all an inspiration!!
