Can you believe the last weekend of June has come and gone? It was a scorcher here in Holland. We have our doors and windows wide open to air out the house and try and dry out the walls. It is looking a little better damp wise but oh the mold look is not so pretty! *sigh* Good news is that we had someone come take a look and he says the mold is not a dangerous kind or one that needs major treatment. The walls however were measured for damp and are bad. It will be a couple of weeks yet for them to dry out before they can be redone. I am so glad they can be treated with a special coating and then repainted. That is better than having to have them rebuilt.
Well, lets look at some beautiful French geraniums instead which are on my table on the terrace.
It is so hot you want to kick off your wooden shoes and soak your feet even in our tiny tub used as a fountain. *grins* (Did you spy the little old pair of children's wooden shoes in the photo?)
But instead, I stitch looked upon by my little stitching mascot, the snail. I move at his pace with my stitching so we are the best of friends. I have been working in my worm garden. What must the worms think of all this heat?
It is coming along and I am having fun stitching it especially at this time of the year. I worked the right hand corner and then went back to the top to continue. Now that brown blob next to the terracotta pot looks like...well a brown blob but will be rabbit. I am anxious to see this section come to life. It is the last (well actually the first but I am working backwards) bit of the verse, lots of leaves, a birdhouse and even a worm.
What did you do this weekend? Did you get some stitching or quilting done?
