Well, as most everyone knows ...it is hot! So there is not much farm happenings to talk about these days. I have been doing something new though....
Yep! I have been making pillow cases! OK ,so far it is just one pillow case... but it is my first and I have to say a big ole thank you to my blogging sister TEXAN, who has done a great job at not only teaching me how to make these but inspiring me to get back to sewing! My friend has talent with the sewing machine let me tell you! She used to sew professionally and she knows some pretty nifty tricks!
My next challenge, after I finish the other pillow case, is to make matching dust ruffles! These are for the spare room...it has 2 antique iron twin beds in there. So yeah,if you visit me and you are married you have to sleep like Lucy and Desi !
I love my old beds,one was mine that I slept on as a child that came from my great grandma ! I don't have many family treasures like that! So, even though it is too hot to do much work around the farm I have no shortage of things to keep me busy in side in the blessed air conditioning! I tell you what ...if I was a pioneer and I came to this baking hot state in the summer...I would have loaded up my covered wagon and headed north! Oh well,that is just me,a lot of folks love the heat...! So here's to great friends with great talents that they don't mind sharing and to air conditioning! I hope you all are staying cool!
