A Winner and a Heat Wave

Sorry for the delay in posting my giveaway winner, we spent the weekend on our "honey do" list and I was too tired to even think about the blog.  While cleaning out my crafting stash, I found a few items to add to the giveaway.

Okay, everyone in the pool!

The tension mounts . . . (thanks to DS for drawing)

. . . and the winner is . . .

Congratulations Mary of Stitches and More!

Mary, please e-mail your snail mail address to me at so you can recieve your goodies.

Since we spent the entire weekend on the "honey do" list, I did not get any new stitching done.  Here is an update on "Season of Love" by CCN.  I messed up on this one, but I am not going to fix it.  Can you  find it?

We will be watching the Gulf this week to see if Tropical Depression 4 will impact the first week of school.  DS is hoping for a hurricane day to extend his summer.  (Can you believe school starts next week?)  We still have 119 days left to hurricane season, so I am hoping the busy year predictions are wrong.

We are having record temps this week.  The heat index (temp plus humidity) has been in the 110 - 115 degree range with heat advisories lasting until 8pm.  Yesterday was the hottest day so far this summer.  A/C repairmen are working non-stop, we are breaking record temps daily and under nearly constant heat advisories -- IT IS HOT!  We usually don't see any real fall-like temperatures until November.  It is going to be a long August (and September and October).

Hope you are having cooler temperatures and enjoying what remains of the summer.

  1. Congratulations to Mary! And no, can't see the mistake...looks good to me!

  2. Congrats to Mary! I hope the weather breaks soon and that the tropical depression doesn't turn into a hurricane. Enough bad news for that part of the country, already.

  3. Congratulations to Mary! No, I can't see the mistake either, Stephanie--it looks so cute :)

  4. Congrats to Mary! Season of Love looks perfect to me, I don't see any mistakes. Not to mention, some of the most creative artists put a tiny "imperfection" in their designs on purpose. It signifies that nothing is perfect. Goodness it's hot there... stay cool!
