Summer's Here!

Yesterday was our first really hot, humid day of the season....right around 100 degrees. After such a cool, wet Spring we aren't ready for this to be sprung on us....I was thoroughly wilted by the end of the day. First thing this morning the AC went in the window....hubby did as he was told with little complaint...he himself had to admit last night that it was pretty miserable in the house. It's cooled down now, it's supposed to be cooler outside for a few days and I can deal with that just fine

This afternoon is our quilt group meeting. It's a hand sewing project so no need to lug the sewing machine, which is nice though I'm not a big hand sewing fan. Always good to shake it up a little.

I've also been doing a little sewing now and then at home. Finished two tops for QOV quilts [no pictures yet] and this is my latest long-term project:

It's Bonnie Hunter's Spoolin' Around pattern. The little spool blocks are all scrappy and I'm going to use the fuschia and green in the setting triangles and borders like she has. It was those bright, happy colors that drew me to it in the first place.  Want to place bets on how many years it takes me to finish??

And last, but certainly not least, is a birthday gift from a friend:

She was thinking of the canning I do and made it out of good sturdy denim. I don't know if it shows up correctly in the picture, but the binding is lime green. Love it! Thanks again, Flicsha.

  1. We're having warm days here in Japan too. And the rainy season on top of it all so everything is muggy. Yuck! Lovely little apron you have!
