Three words.
Hot.  Hot.  Hot.
I think I finally believe in global warming.  Actually I don’t know about the globe.  I for sure know it’s hot in Kansas.
Did I say it’s HOT!?
Too hot to do much of anything.  Even the pool is too hot to be refreshing.
Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not complaining.  I’m thankful we aren’t having out of control fires or floods.  My heart goes out to anyone suffering with those horrible conditions.
I can’t imagine what it would be like to have to leave my home on a moment’s notice knowing it would probably not be there when I came back.
Thank you, Lord, for your protection and please be with those who are in peril and distress.

Since I’m staying in mostly these days I did manage to meet the SDP 2013 Conference submission deadline.  I sent my paperwork and photos off today.  The deadline.  There’s no point in hurrying things.  Right?

Next is the fall deadline for the Raindrop Chapter Convention.  I’m excited to think I might have some things finished ahead of time.  Woo Hoo

Since I can’t show you what I’ve been painting I thought you might like to see this little pin cushion I needle felted for my daughter-in-law, Kalen.  Now that she has received it for her birthday I can put it on the blog.  I never know when she might be checking out the blog.

I really love needle felting.  It’s the least expensive and requires the least amount of “stuff” of all the hobbies I have.  All you need is a foam pad, some felting needles, and some wool roving.  Oh.  And don’t forget the imagination.
I also really like it because I can easily work on it in the living room while watching TV with Hubby Dear.
There is no sewing or stuffing or any of that boring stuff.  Just poking at the wool with a needle.  Kind of like sculpting.
Maybe you would like to see a couple of other things I’ve felted too.  Just for fun.  Cuz I love to show off.

Okay okay that’s enough showing off.
See you next time.
