Heat wave

It has been so hot here. I do complain about the weather and I held out on the heat because winters are so long…. but it’s uncomfortable. Even with air conditioning, our second floor is hot. So long arming and sleeping is a bit of a challenge at times! Rain has come and I am hoping August isn’t a 90 degree month.

Look at that hot orange baby quilt. It is going to a new granddaughter due in Oct. I won’t show the entire thing so there is a surprise. Mom pieced it and I quilted it. The next pic is Pat Sloan’s mystery quilt and I am up to date. The last pic is blocks I am returning to Mom for a BOM we bought a few years ago. I have the blocks done for my BOM . Mom doesn’t paper piece and together via the internet we will assemble them. It is a lovely star quilt. 6 more done 9 to go!

As you can see I am plodding along with my knitting. It is sock yarn and plans was for a scarf or cowl. We will see. And if you click on any pic it will get large and you can see my new iron!

My husband went for a ride with his mother while I was working Saturday. My  cordless iron started to leak. He asked what kind I wanted and while he was in the city he bought me one!!!! I love it. It is so steamy and hot. It makes sewing fun! I can press quilt backs in half the time I bet!

So I have not been exercising much, bronchitis and heat don’t mix with activity. I am working in several offices and we will see how many I get to over the next month. Most of them I bet! I am still thinking about a podcast and I want to make a few over the next month and learn to edit them. My goal is Sept 1 for a bi weekly cast. I am also thinking that my long arming is going to be restricted to my current customer base if life continues to be as busy as it is!



  1. It’s hard to shake bronchitis and I hope you’re feeling better soon! Love the quilting on the baby quilt. I’m sure it will be much loved and treasured!
