Yes, some like it hot. Me, not so much. I love summer, honest, but 90F is a wee bit too much. Especially when it's humid. So no sewing around here, because sewing means ironing - sorry Charlie, not gonna happen.
Instead, I've been doing lots of this.
I knew it would be very warm, so I stocked up at the library. The bottom four have been read. I'm supposed to be making this -
My mom wants a messenger bag to carry on the plane with her, she's going to Arizona. In June. Better her than me. She needs to carry her insulin on the plane and assorted other goodies, and needs a bigger purse. We got the fabric last week, but it needs ironing [see above]. I'll be adding lots of pockets to this one, including a cell phone pocket on the gusset. I'll also be making one for myself....first, to make sure I don't mess up hers.
I also need to take this picture out of its frame and do something else with it. It's my mum's, it was hanging in her room as a child. It has a cardboard backing and no glass on the front, so it's in rough shape.
Aren't the faces just the sweetest?
This one doesn't involve ironing, so it just might happen.
And now, about the give-away. Joanne from Splitting Stitches is giving away a quilt kit for a darling quilt! Go check it out! She has a lovely blog and is a wonderful quilter!
I had been hoping that during this heat wave I could catch up on the Blogger's Quilt Festival. But my computer has been running VERY hot - the fan just kept coming on, so I had to shut it down most of the day. I would get up very early and check email, then off it went. Turned out the processor was very dusty and grimy - dh washed it for me and now it's running well. Scary stuff and boy do I need to do a back-up! Maybe tonight when it's cooler.
Have a wonderful weekend, and for all you in the States, a lovely Memorial Day holiday. Remember all those who fought and died for us, and who are fighting still.
