It's been a much cooler week here in Allie-land. I only hope it is elsewhere too - so many millions of folks were without power in truly dreadful heat. My aunt was without power for 5 days after five storms came through July 3rd, knocking out our holiday grilling party. 102F with no a/c? I don't think so.
Not much sewing going on. Lots of this though....
This poor bunny. The chipmunks [can you see him?] were mad at him for eating the seed under the bird feeder, and they would run right at him and under him. He would jump straight up in the air, look around wildly, and resume eating.
Cheeky little things.
It was lovely getting up at dawn and watching the birds come in for breakfast.
Those pics are all taken at my aunt's house, before the storm. I love her house...this is my favorite room...
Doesn't that look so inviting? When the air conditioning is working, anyway.
My friend Sandra at Sandra Sews has issued me a challenge. She wants me to sew for just 15 minutes a day. You know, I think I can do that! By hand or machine, only 15 minutes is not too bad. I do have a new pattern....
I saw it on Pinterest, and had to have it. My son bought it for me, isn't that sweet? Someone raised those boys right. *G*
I've uploaded a free pattern for you, to my google docs. It's Pam's Poppy. Can't remember exactly when I finished it, but I finally uploaded it. I'd love to see if you make it, especially in batiks...I really, really want to make it in batiks.
The link to the pdf file is here. I'll add it to the free pattern page as soon as I remember how. [edit: pattern is no longer free. Can be found in my craftsy shop, link on sidebar.]
I hope you all have a great week, I think I'm finally back to blogging a bit more. My google reader is cleaned out, but it sure builds up fast. We have another heat wave coming, hopefully I can talk hubby into putting the a/c unit in my room so I can stay home - I miss sewing, and internet when I'm not here! Have a great week, everyone!
