Sweatin’ It Out in the Studio Today!



Phew! It has been so stinkin’ hot! I’ve gotten outside just a little bit this week- walking early in the morning (around 6 am- but even at dawn it’s already uncomfortably sticky outside), and then later in the day I try to get out and water my garden, but that’s it!  We actually helped my daughter and her husband move into their new apartment on Monday- their new apartment has central air conditioning, which is so nice because their old one had none and they were just miserable. Anyway, it was a very hot day (95 degrees and extremely humid) but we got it all done in one day- and daughter has gotten most of her stuff unpacked already. They are glad to be settling into their newer, bigger, and most importantly- air conditioned- place.

This week, I have been sitting in the studio doodling with my new Tombow markers:



I have also been working on a sample for a workshop I am teaching at a guild next week. The problem is, that even with the air conditioning, having to use the iron is making me sweat! Normally I love a lot of steam when I press- I love seeing just how flat I can get my seams, ha ha. But this week, I have been just using the cool iron, and I figure I’ll go back and press the whole thing all at once when it’s all done.





Connie over at Freemotion by the River made this really cute little table-topper quilt from my Happy Town fabric line– I think it’s so cute and cheerful!

What are you doing to stay this cool this weekend? (Or, if you’re on the other side of the equator and it’s winter, I guess I should ask, What are you doing to stay warm??)

    I just stumbled across your website and blog, and must say that I LOVE all that you have here – so many different things to explore and the stuff that you make is all GORGEOUS!

    On the heat – I am definitely ready for fall at this point!! I love it when the leaves change color and the crisp morning air wakes you up (not like the humidity that smacks you in the face when you walk outside)!
