Back to our Regularly Scheduled Stitching

We had a wonderfully lively Thursday morning stitching group yesterday. I started the day by finishing a crocheted cozy for my water bottle. I'm tired of it dripping and they had kitchen cotton on sale for $1 a few weeks back at Michaels. It is not elegant, but it fits and will suit my needs. 

Then I moved on to a project that again - I can't show! But I'm trying to finish something quickly and I'm making it up as I go along using many samplers stitches. Darn thing is larger than I thought and I may not make my deadline. Especially as I've still got friendship mystery sampler stitching to do. 

Anyone who surfs the stitchy blogs knows the east coast is having a heat wave. We're gonna improve today with a projected high 92 degrees. A little rain might be a good thing and we may get some tomorrow. My DS didn't do a commendable job of watering my plants while we were away and I went out yesterday and replaced my hanging basket of petunias. Also bought more basil as I think those may not survive being ignored either. And then there's the matter of the two perennials he may have killed. Argh. Was not a happy person when I saw the destruction upon arriving home. 

I'd love to go the farmer's market in the a.m. but it's Sampler Guild Saturday tomorrow.

OMG! The dude couldn't water the petunias in the hanging basket when I was gone either. How do men function without women? (I guess without plants.) He did manage to water most other things, and for that I should be grateful. But it was a Rhythm and Blues, and I can't find one to replace it. I loved that petunia. :(

We did have fun yesterday, didn't we? I have to take some pictures of my progress and post it. Maybe tomorrow.
