Yeah, seems I've painted myself in a corner again. Figured the challenge with the big pumpkin would be an easy fix after the rest was hooked. All I had to do is just leave it alone or change it to an all dirty white pumpkin ~ easy peasy.
This afternoon I pulled myself away from the Use it Up rug to do the 'quick' finish hooking the tongues on Patriotic Pumpkins. HA! Started hooking the two tongues on the right side. They looked way too busy for the rest of the rug.
With so little of the design to hook I'm frustrated with myself for not finishing it tonight. Am thinking that saying 'less is more' is definitely true in this case. Earlier in the week friend Jennie commented to me something like..."why is it something so easy seems so difficult?" Perhaps because I've made it hard and over thinking.
For damn sure I don't like those two tongues on the right side. They will go. But tonight I'm back to my Use it Up.
Hot as Hades today. When looking at the outside temps on my thermostat, at 2 p.m. the reading was 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37.78 Celsius) at 2 p.m. and usually it gets higher around 3 but didn't check.
Grass needs to be cut and Ben's backyard needs it the worse. Not pushing that mower in that kind of temp so will check the temps tomorrow after breakfast. If not then perhaps the sun and heat will just kill the grass. Okay by me ~ no grass to cut.
Stay cool and hydrate.
