It's soooo HOT!!!

We had two lovely days in the mid 80's.  A cool breeze made it so pleasant in the early morning.  The house cooled off inside and life was bearable.

Yesterday the heat came back!  I decided to sweat it out (literally!) and go to the hook-in at Grant Street.  Yes, it was a/c'd and the fan was running. 

I haven't been very attentive to taking pictures lately, so went with all good intentions of shooting some good ones.  Doris is working on the most amazing large rug with colorful flowers and leaves.  I wanted to make sure I got some close-ups of the shading.

I forgot to ask Doris, but I think the shading is done with dip dyed strips.  Aren't the colors great?

Just as I finished up taking these picture, my camera gives me the happy little message 'please recharge battery'.  So much for lots of pictures!!!

We had a new young person working on her first hooked project that she designed herself.  Her name (I think) is Jessica and she is in the tenth grade.  She has drawn up a design with seashells and will be doing her background in a lovely mottled blue and white, sky and sea.  Maybe next time I can get a picture of her work.

We also had a visitor from Winchester, VA who came for the first time.  Jane, I hope you come back and join us again!

Darn, this isn't any fun without pictures!  They sure are worth a thousand words!!!

But I do have a few kitty pictures.  (You knew I would)

Penny is climbing the window screen in pursuit of a fly.  By the time these kids are adults the screens will be shredded!

And look!  I just printed out a cute little Isabell.

Deiter is HOT!!!  But why would he be sleeping in the tent instead of in front of the fan???

As I am typing it is starting to thunder. 

Oh, good!  Here comes the rain!  I hope it cools things off.

You can see how thirsty our grass has been getting.

Aaaaah!!!  Water! 


  1. Print me a kitty too please! Love the kids pics! Deiter looks sooo comfy - I feel like joining him! Our screens get the same action!

    Just hot for two days - you are lucky - been humid and miserable here forever it seems!

    Hope to see you next week!

  2. Pat, You are so right the rug is amamzing.

    Kitty pictures are adorable!!!!

    We've had some much need rain to but the hot weather has also returned.

  3. Those are some beautifully shaded leaves! Almost looks like rug yarn (on my monitor anyways)... Love the kitty pics! They are all so cute... can't pick a favorite... :-)

  4. Sharon,
    It looks like rug yarn because it's such a fine cut, #3 I believe. Like hooking with angel hair pasta!

  5. Those leaves are amazing. Doris must have alot of patience - but the extra effort is obviously worth it. Hope you are staying cool.

  6. You also need good eye sight to hook with a #3!! How gorgeous is that shading and Doris, the rug looks spectacular!

    I can see the kittens have settled in quite nicely! Even posing for photographs now! LOL

    Pat, I have been trying to come up with some cooler weather here to send your way but sounds like we're in for another week or so of the 90's. The evenings are nice but the mosquitos drive you insane if you sit outside! So have been hooking inside most evenings!

    Loved this post!
    Hugs, Cathy G

  7. gosh, Pat, I didn't know you took all of those pics. I have to admit that the rug looks good in them - maybe I need to get away from it - reducing glass I guess! I love the kitties and especially Dieter. I like his attitude!!!!

  8. Pat ~
    Doris' rug is amazing. Her colors are gorgeous! I hope we get to see more of it.
    Thank you for sharing all the kitty pix. They are all too cute!
    It is going to be another scorcher in northern Ohio, too. I am hoping for rain ~ lots of it.
    Pug hugs :)

  9. You print out the cutest kitties!! Is that bee boxes i see in your yard?!?!?

  10. Hi Jill,
    No they are compost bins.
    Homes for yellow jackets instead of bees, unfortunately!


Thanks for visiting!
