July 2019

July 2019, has been a jewel of a month but is a necklace about to be hung in the calendar closet. So it is with every month. I still have four days to finish my July projects, (a challenge I accept) especially two worth noting.

l crochet fabric rugs and am finished making them for this season, but I need to catalog and pack them for the fall craft fairs. Every style and design are beautiful and created with love, so this is a pleasurable job that will take me several precious hours.

Sometime in the next few days I will be going to Tulsa to visit my dear aunt. She also crochets, and she paints delightful country scenes on any object she can find. If you have someone who inspires you and mentors you like Aunt Beulah does me, you'll understand how I look forward to this visit.

I believe I can fit in these two sparkly treasures before July moves over for August!

Wind fascinates everyone of us. Wind causes problems as well. On this hot July day, where is that refreshing breeze?

Robert Pierce wrote my favorite children's 'wind' book called "The Day of the Wind." It is out of print I believe, so I cling to my battered and well-read copy. I hope some of you can find a copy and enjoy the story. But, if you want a different great wind adventure that is easy to find, try "Wild, Wild Wind" written by me, Jodi Heaton Hurst.

"Wild, Wild Wind," blows you, the reader, from page to page with Grandma Rose, Grandpa Frank, and that crazy, wild wind. LOOK! It's blowing Grandma Rose down the road. Grandpa can't help Grandma. Neither can Mollie Dog or Gorby Goat. Will somebody, please, help Grandma?

You can get "Wild, Wild Wind" by contacting me, or asking for the book at a local bookstore, or ordering it from the online bookstore:

 Let's get Wild, Wild Wind" into your hands. Your child needs a new, favorite read-aloud story.
