A late post...

I thought I would post now at almost 7 pm because tomorrow morning I will be up at 4 am and getting Mr H up at 4:30 so we can get checked in at the hospital for 5:30! Have I ever mentioned that Mr H is not, repeat, not a morning person before 9:30 am??? Luckily the hospital is only 6 miles away. It will be a very long day. He has been in more pain this week. We will be glad to get this over and hopefully it will help. I wanted to show you ...
my new books that arrived this week. I bought them from Amazon and thy arrived quickly. With them in hand I have organized a few projects....

This is my next Needle punch, a hummingbird....it will have a challenge for me...I will be using rayon threads! Definitely will be interesting. So far just his beak and head done. Next up,
a small penny rug mat....simple but I think I will embellish it with some embroidery on the pennies.  I remembered that I had some wonderful fabric from Dixie Sampler so I started Bee Happy
It is 25 count and is called, Vintage Butter Pecan...perfect! So, I have plenty to keep me organized and busy while taking care of the hubby and also to keep me occupied in the hospital waiting room. This weekend we are having a heat wave warning----- the temps are predicted to be between 117 and 119 for Sunday and Monday. Guess you know that it means the air conditioner will be running and the ceiling fans will be twirling. It is always so nice to have you visit....thank you for the kind words and your friendship. Have a good weekend.

Sending good wishes to you and Mr. H for a good outcome. Those are some great projects to work on. I'm north of you but I will be hunkered down and trying to keep cool myself! We may hit the low 100's.

I hope it all goes well for Mr H. My hubby had a dentist appointment for 9am which he wasn't happy about. He was even less happy when they phoned up at 8.30 and cancelled it after he'd made the effort to get up early!

Love the name of that fabric, sounds delicious!

Lovely project choices. Best wishes for the surgery to go well and a smooth, successful recovery.
