I've Been Trying to Stay Cool

I thought stitching these little guys might help me stay cool, but it hasn't worked. Several 40 degree days in a row is very draining, but finally a very pleasant 30 degree day today -
Think the world's going crazy - hot, hot temperatures in Australia and terrible drought in Queensland and parts of New South Wales, and terrible floods and lots of snow in the U.K. and other parts as well. Love my little "chilly chums", even though they didn't cool me down.

This is their little mate. I don't often stitch in blue, preferring my favourite redwork, but the button set that comes with it is in blues - gorgeous buttons from Just Another Button Company. And I've fallen in love with the blue. Several more blocks to stitch - it is a gorgeous design from Bird Brain Designs called "Snowmen and Reindeers".  Have a great week.  Counting down to our Mill Rosie bloggers get-together next Saturday.

Lovely little stitcheries Cheryl. I stitched my Christmas banner in blue last year and was really please with how it turned out. It was a nice change from the normal red.
