I Know...

I said I wanted summer...but this is just too much.  It was over 100F yesterday.  I'm staying at my mum's house, she has a/c, I don't.  She does not, however, have internet...so I popped home this morning to say hi to you all.

Needless to say, not much sewing is going on.  I did finish Michelle's Irish Blessing, such a darling design!

Sandra, from Sandra Sews, came for a visit a couple of weeks ago, all the way from Toronto - Irish Blessing was my gift to her.  I'd show you the darling bags she made me but I forgot to take a pic, and I'm too hot right now.  She only came for a day and night, we went shopping [mum went too] and MAN can that girl shop.  I couldn't hardly walk the next day.  She's absolutely adorable and I loved meeting her and her hubby.  They are Good People.

One thing I got while we were out was a new hat for Ted.....

He's the bear that Midge over at Soggibottom gave away, and I won.  He had a winter hat and scarf and I thought he needed something summery.  I love him so much.  He seems to be handling the heat just fine.

Sandra brought a basket of goodies and my kitty, Hermione, found it.  She didn't REALLY fit, but thought she did.

She hasn't been in it in the last few days, however.  Far too warm.  She's been hanging out in the basement, eating spiders.

That's all the news from here, I'm going to shower and head back over to mum's, to luxuriate in the air conditioning and read several books.  I really, really wish she had internet, my Google Reader is ready to explode from unread blog posts.  Stay cool, or warm if you're below the equator...I'll see you when the heat wave breaks!

I MISS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH NO !!! That is hot. I can understand you wanting to be at your Mum's with the air conditioning. Hoping it will be more comfortable for you very soon. Your Irish Blessing looks beautiful, and I love Ted's hat.
Miss you too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Darlene said...

Nice to 'see' you. Stay cool at your Mum's and we'll be waiting.

Debbie said...

My air is on full blast, too hot to do anything without it.
Love the piece you made, really special gift. Aren't her bears the best, I won one too and love it.

Sweet! And I love the hat! Now all he needs is a red bandana and he's ready to ride. Oh I guess he'd need a horse too...
I think it must be hot everywhere, we've been enjoying 100+ days for the last week - wow!

Linda said...

It was 108 at my house, but we all have air conditioning here. It is not fun, for sure!
Love Hermione in the basket!

Karen said...

That is hot weather for your part of the country! In times gone past, no one had air-conditioning. Makes you wonder how people could tolerate the heat.

laurie in texas said...

Miss you too! It's been 100+ here for the last 5 days. It's my first full summer in Texas - and it's YUCK! I like Texas but not this heat.

Sharon said...

Good lord, everyone bragging about their temps. We have had one or two days over 70 since last Oct. up here in the Pacific NW. I'm dying for summer. At least I went to Las Vegas when it was 101 so I've been warm for a few days this spring/summer. *vbg* I'm a huge hockey fan, love my Canucks, but I too, cheered for LA, since they knocked us out first round. Stay cool and enjoy your time with your mom.

unfinishedquilts said...

I miss you too! Been watching for you, so happy to see your post! Trying to stay cool here too, but not so easy! This is just crazy and it doesn't look like much relief in sight.
Love the Irish Blessing, beautiful!

Patricia said...

That Irish Blessing is gorgeous, Allie - but then everything you do is just beautiful!!!

That cat of yours is hysterical.

I do wish you had A/C and internet all in one place...but grateful for your mum's place where you can stay cool.

Love you muchly!

SuperMomNoCape said...

So glad that you got to go shopping with Sandra. She's one of the most fun people I know to hang out with. Love the Irish Blessing you made for her.

Too many eggs said...

absolutely love the stitchery what a gorgeous verse/blessing.....love it

Hermoine is so gorgeous

nice and cold over here in Aust have our wood fire on most nights....don't melt

Brenda said...

I do not think I quite made the 100 degree mark in our neck of the woods yesterday. But I think it got quite close. I have been staying in. Love the blessing piece and the colors you used are lovely! Hope you are still staying cool! I remember our no air days, it was not that long ago. We did not have air in the home I raised all my daughters in. We lived there for 28 years. We did have one daughter staying with us when she had her first baby and this little girl does not take heat well and we bought our first window air conditioner. We have central air now. I feel rather spoiled.

Dolores said...

Lucky you get along with your mom. So what are the men doing? Sweltering in the heat? Before we had A/C I slept in the basement on the floor in a sleeping bag and my children joined me. Hubby didn't mind the heat.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

oh my Allie, no A/C??? We just could not make it without A/C in the summer. Glad you can hang out at your Mom's.

Jenny of Elefantz said...

Miss you too, my sweet friend.
{{hugs}}
And I love that stitchery - Shell is so talented, and you've done her proud with your beautiful version!
Sending cooling hugs, and cyber ice blocks,
Love
Jen

In Perth, Aussie we know how you feel at 100 degrees. Youcan not live here without aircon as we get at least a month around those temps every summer. Right now I have the fire going as the nights are cold & winter has finally come. Finally got some Puerh Tea by mail order, like the taste. I only have that & white tea but feel good for drinking more that is not coffee. I won't mention the weight because I don't want to jinx it. I think I must have read the scales wrong, maybe weigh again tomorrow morning. Tracee xx

Mickie said...

Miss you too girl but stay cool! That is most important right now!
Hugs, Mickie PS: Hermoine is so cute :)

Carrie P. said...

At least you have some place to hang out until the weather cools down. It is pretty miserable all over the US.
Your cat is so silly.
hugs!

cq4fun said...

Same weather here in E. TN! I was in Atlanta today, and I thought I would fry on the spot. I heard 105 on the radio, and that the air quality was such that EVERYONE was advised to stay inside. Of course, no one did! Humid - ugh! This is not the desert heat!

Teddy needed that straw hat to protect him from the heat! Love the cat picture, that is just PURE catness.

Caron Mosey said...

This heat is ridiculous! Stay cool, girlfriend!

Wendy said...

I came over to say your Irish Blessing is beautiful, then saw you gave it to sandra! how lovely!

I wish I could meet up with you two girls too, I'd give sandra a run for her shopping money!!

Spiders? Seriously? Cats eat spiders?

Mama Pea said...

Miss you, too. I've been a bad blogger, too. Too much going on! ARGH! I can't believe how little rain we've had. My yard looks like it's the end of August. And it's a killer keeping the plants alive right now!

Elisa said...

I know, right!?! So flapping hot! I'm finishing up a quilt - had to place a fan on the floor under the quilt. Ugh! Stay cool!

Mama Spark said...

Glad you found a way to stay cool Chica!! Hermoine is hilarious, but isn't that they way of cats!!??

loulee said...

Trade you. We'll have your record breaking temps, and you can have our record breaking rainfall? Keep cool.

John'aLee said...

Girlie it's been hot here too. Kind of looks like Fall, because tons of trees are losing their leaves becuz of no rain.
I LOVE that stitchery! Absolutely adorable!
Miss you too!!

Michelle May said...

Miss you bunches Allie! Hope you are staying cool. Love how the design turned out.
