Little House Needleworks

And I have been anxious to make a new start, so I spent a little time last night on this.
"At Home with Jane Austen"
The Sampler Girl
stitched over 2 on French Country linen in Latte
using 2 strands of the recommended Crescent Colours threads
It is not my usual color palette, but I love these bright happy colors! It has been a fun and easy stitch so far.
Not looking forward to this afternoon. The expected heat index for today is between 110 and 115 and today is the first day of cross-country practice for DS. We are under heat advisories from 9am - 10pm all week. I will be wishing I could stay home. I try to find a shady spot (there are not many) where I can stitch and watch practice. It is amazing to see how far these kids can run, especially in this heat. Last year, DS came in from the first practice plopped down on his bed (despite my urging to shower first - ewww!) and fell asleep for 3 hours. (He has a big test tomorrow, so I hope he doesn't take another long nap.)
Ten minutes into practice, I will be wishing I had stayed home. And when I get home, I will probably head straight for the shower. Fortunately, I will have the red beans in the crock pot so I will only have to make rice and turn on the oven (ughhh!) to bake the corn bread and then pop the sausage under the broiler.
Maybe I should change this design to "There's nothing like staying home in the a/c." Do you think Tanya would mind?
Hoping it is cooler where you are!
