Project Runway

I am so very glad that Project Runway is on again.  I do find inspiration from the show.  Many many years ago, I had dreams of being a fashion designer.  Well... maybe nightmares... but still.

I wish I had the talent to even attempt to submit my works to be on the show.  Maybe I should spend some of my limited spare time in that direction.

Hey, you only go around this planet with one lifetime, so why not make the most of it and do what you want to do?  I'm one that realizes that you have to do what you have to do... but you have to also follow the dream as well.  

Following the dream is what took me to starting Thread Treasures in the first place.

Stitch on...

A teaspoon of rain

Yippie!!! :)

We received a teaspoon of rain overnight. Cooler temps, by about 10 or so degrees for the next day before the oven returns again.

Christmas in July

Slacks are done

Yeah!  I finished the slacks.  :)

Not really a watermelon not really a stawberry, but somewhere inbetween.  Found THE perfect top today as well, so will have a new outfit to wear tomorrow.

I love being able to whip up something new in short order.

Dog Days of Summer

It isn't even the part of the Dog Days of Summer yet, but dang...this heat is sucking the life out of me and everything around me.  If I do have to venture outside during the day, I feel like I need a couple hour nap to recharge my batteries.

It is so dry as well.  The deer came up and ate a bunch of the landscaping that I had done this spring.  My Zinnia's were just about to bloom, and the deer stripped everything to the stem.  I have tons of naked stems sticking up out of the ground.

Oh well... hopefully the weather will turn soon.
