beating the heat

Ice Cream Truck Embroidery Pattern by SeptemberHouse

Who is ready for a little relief from the heat? If we listen closely I think we can hear that reassuring "ding! ding!" signally the arrival of an ice cream truck. Do you hear it?

Okay, so maybe it doesn't work for an embroidered ice cream truck but it was worth a shot. To be honest I have not seen/heard a single ice cream truck all Summer. Where did those guys go?

So this pattern was designed way back when we still just dreaming about summer and I just now finished stitching it up. I ordered fabric for this one because I thought I would want the added color but I almost think it would have been fine without it. I am curious about how it would look that way too. Newsletter subscribers got this one for free so some of you have already seen this. Hopefully you all had a chance to give this one a go.

Now that I have cooled off I think I will head out to the garden and see how my poor plants are faring! Thanks for taking a peek at this project!!

the angels make a comeback

Since we are in the middle of a heatwave and the middle of July you can bet I'll have just one thing on my mind... you guessed it, Christmas!

I decided to re-vamp my Holiday Angels pattern collection a few months ago and finally have the updated version ready to go.

One little angel got a pretty big makeover and I just re-stitched the other two. And yes, there is still a secret freebie pattern in the set - dang it - I keep blurting that out! I meant to say there may or may not be a secret free pattern included * wink *

And now back to our regularly scheduled heatwave. To be honest I love the hot weather - and so do my tomatoes so I refuse to complain about it. Stay cool everyone!
