Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye
July 18th, 2010 by Annette


Another week gone without a post.

It’s almost too hot to think here in Arizona.  We’re in our annual monsoon season and after living in the southwest, more or less, for the past almost-30 years, any increase in humidity is very noticeable to me.  Here in Phoenix, we suffer through July and August to fully appreciate and enjoy the rest of the year 🙂

A couple of inquiries regarding the new scissor holder from my last post.  Here are a few more details:

  • I found it at a small antique shop in Prescott. 
  • It is ceramic.  Two pieces – the top is circular with 13 holes (12 around the outside and one in the center).  The bottom is simply a large “cup” with a lip around the inside for the top to settle in.
  • There is a maker’s mark on the bottom but I’ve not been able to find any info.  It says “JL Collection”

In between bouts of PuzzleQuest 2, I have managed a few x’s here and there.  Here’s my Mirabilia Summer Queen:

This is essentially everything on the “back” of the chart.  I’d estimate she’s about 60% complete.  Here’s the full pic from the Mirabilia site: Summer Queen

  2. Lovely draping! She’ll be a beauty.

  3. Colors are wonderful! She’s really coming along nicely.

    Humidity and I are on a first name basis. But, that doesn’t mean I like him. I told DH I want a vacation home in AZ just to be humidity-free.

  4. Summer Queen looks beautiful!!! Did you notice how well the colour of the flowers in on your blog background coordinate with her?

  5. It’s looking great!

  6. Annette, I came to your blog through Pastor Ryan’s recent post and your comment there. I want to say to you “don’t make someone else your priority when you are only their option”. If this is not appropriate, please forgive me. It’s something that stays with me often and I thought maybe you could use it too. Have a blessed day.

  7. Summer Queen is lovely! Thinking cool thoughts for you, you’re welcome to some of our Indiana humidity to go with your hot if you’d like:)

  8. This is already really beautiful and I love seeing her. The colors are gorgeous!!!
