Change of Plans



I still have not started quilting the two quilts that are ready and begging to be quilted.  Instead I went back and retrieved this one that I started quite some time back.  It is for our bed, and it just seems so light and summer-y that I wanted to play with it instead.  I've got it about halfway pieced (though obviously not pressed yet).  I do love these 1930's reproduction fabrics.  They just make me happy.

I was working on getting my fabrics in a little better order last night.  After falling into my stash that way, I wondered if I would get out again, but I did. LOL

It is really hot here.  Tuesday's high was 104F (40C).  It's too bad we can't turn the thermostat on the outdoor temperatures, isn't it!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hugs and kisses,

Love those 30's! Stay Cool Elaine -- I'm thinking you've sent your HOT weather to us -- and I'm not very happy about it LOL!

I'm glad you followed your heart and worked on what you wanted to.

I think you are sending that weather to us. We're supposed to go over 100 tomorrow. That will be the first time (Chicago tally) since 2005. Actually out here in the country we have beaten the Chicago official temps many times.
