Christmas in Summer?

I have taken part in a Christmas in July swap in one of my crafting groups I am in. The theme was Christmas in July. I had fun stitching both of these Lizzie Kate pieces! I made them off simple because I did not want to get too fancy with the beads and such since the ladies they are going to has young ones in the house I get worried about all the what ifs so I did not embellish it too much. Not too much going on here it has been hotter than Hades in Ohio. Some days in the 90's or near 90 and when you have no working ac and can't afford one then you really are sweating through the summer! All in all so far it has been a good summer. I am back now to working part time since my extra summer work I completed early so now I have time to do what I want. For a while I did not I was to wiped out at the end of the day to have the ambition to do what I wanted to do. The heat did not help either. My son James is having fun he spends a lot of days away from the house having fun which is good for him. He will be an 8th grader in the fall. 1 more year and he will be in high school. This year ahead though I worry about because things are only getting harder and this year they are preparing the kids for high school so that means learning things that are even too much for me to understand! Our newest baby Gisborne is doing good too. He is a good boy all around and a cutie in my opinion. Other than that not too much else to share. So until next time I hope everyone is having a great summer so far!
