Well, you know from my previous post that my garden isn't doing too great this year. My geraniums usually are suffering a bit by this time anyway, but I've found that if I repot them in late August and trim them back by about half they'll rebloom and look great until the frost gets them. Until then, I'll have to settle for the wool version.
This ridiculous pattern by Primitive Gatherings features 10 individual flowers in each geranium. Luckily, I actually enjoy the tracing and cutting out part of a project so I didn't really mind cutting out the 80 teeny, tiny little buds. A little sick, I know, but that's how it is.
In addition to staying inside and working and stitching, this week son Mark and I will be helping with the construction of an extreme makeover house! And they actually encourage us to take photos so I'll post about our experience in a few days. Can you believe they are building an entire house in a week? God bless all the people helping out with the building process--our extreme heat wave continues and we'll have temps well about 100 degrees today and tomorrow. We'll be working inside and I'm selfishly hoping the air conditioner is working by the time we report on Wednesday.
