August brings record heat to Seattle.  This is not a hot place.  An average of 5 days over 90 in a summer and we are on day 10 with more to come!

So all we can do is stay inside and stitch. And if you are lucky enough to have A/C (15% of the population), let me know and I will be right over!

Pioneer Woman was channeling me!  I watched her show a couple weeks ago and she made my favorite summer drink.  Here is my version:  Peel and dice a big chunk of fresh ginger and boil 5 minutes in 3 C of water.  Save it in a jar in the fridge.  To stave off the heat, pour 1/4 C in a tall glass with ice and diet tonic water - no sugar.  


Crystallize has 3 more sections.  And you can see more spaces for the Swarovski crystals.  Planet Earth Silk is getting rave reviews.   

New Fobs, new Blue, new Cupcakes... I am adding more every day. Mille Fiori Fob #840 made with beads I bought in Venice - one of a kind.  http://bluedogwooddesigns.com/fobs.php

 

Best,
Stitchers make the best friends.
