hot, hot, hot

Southern California has been hit by a heat wave. It's been in the high 90's the last few days, which is not very motivational. I've considered moving the sewing machine out by the pool, but don't think she's waterproof. My "fresh air" quilt is still coming together, but rather slowly. It's more like "the air's so hot I'm suffocating". Block #5 was completed last night and the determined size for the blocks has been established at 14" by 15". Rather large, but very powerful.

Amy, at Badskirt, posted about her recent package from Sew, Mama, Sew. And so, I bit. Half an hour later I found some awesome deals that I feel good about. Really good about. Especially this one from the Katie Jump Rope line. Something about this green gets me.

I'm enjoying viewing everyone's quilts from the Blogger's Quilt Festival. It's hard to comment on every quilt, due to time restraints, but I'm trying to get in a few words here and there. Thank you to everyone who's left a comment for me and mine.

Man, alive, it is HOT! Stay cool. Find a pool.

It gets really hot and muggy here in summer. But right now it just feels like cool spring weather.
