We're Having a Heat Wave!

(Apologies to family members in this long ago photo!)

It has been hot, hot, hot! Little energy to do much of anything- even sewing has been hard being that I am a drippy, yucky mess! That being said, Last Born and I decided take a ride out to the hill towns to visit my (our) favorite quilt shop. It was cooler- slightly- and the company was grand. I managed to pick up some goodies, including a few half yard pieces off the sale table. I'll have to remember to thank quilt buddies 2 and 3 for leaving something behind. I feared for the state of the sale tables after hearing about their shopping spree last week *wink*.

Upon our return home, I cranked up the air conditioner in the sewing room and told myself I WAS going to finish the wall hanging project over at Kelly's blog: Charming Chatter. I made great headway, stopping only to prepare the ingredients for our dinner- grilled burgers with avocado and smoked Gouda, simple potato salad and a mixed green salad simply dressed with Balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Yummy. First born had made a fresh green bean salad with shallots and Feta earlier in the day and we added that to the menu as well.
By 7pm I was back in the sewing room doing "quilt math" and constructing/applying the top border. Good work! It fit perfectly, so I decided to call it a night. I am so very pleased with this project!! Tonight after work I'll put together the bottom (and final border) then decide how it might get quilted. I'll take photos this weekend, promise!!

I also want to share some of my favorite photos from the Vermont Quilt Festival...
but I need to document them first. It's only fair to give credit where credit is due, don't you agree?
Until then- stay cool and find the time to do something you love!

Wish I could have gone quilt shopping! Can't wait to see what you have been working on! I'm working on Christmas Stockings for Holly and Adam so can't share them online because Holly checks out my blog! When I get one done I"ll send you a pic.
