The heat and humidity hit records in some areas and one would think that with living as close to the sea as we do, we would have experienced at least a little breeze, but the air was virtually still. Sleeping was fitful and outdoor work came to a standstill.
And so did my sewing!
Being that my sewing studio is upstairs...and heat rises...there was no way that I was going to torture myself up there in front of my machine. As a result, I didn't get as much accomplished with the next step to my mystery quilt as I would have liked. Everything is made, now I just have to sew it to the quilt-in-progress. It should be done in the next couple of days although the humidity seems to be back today. Yuck!
While on the topic of my mystery quilt, the template for the Dresden plate 'petal' that I included with the photos and instructions in the PDF to Step 3 appears to not want to print to the actual size. I apologize for this but as you probably all know by now, I am NOT a computer guru, nor do I pretend to be so I try to compensate by offering alternative plans of action. I do my best but had a feeling that this might happen and that is why I included the measurements to the 'petal' in order that you could draw your own.
Tuesday is the 1st day of September! Bring on fall and the cooler weather!
I decided that I needed some touches of Autumn around the house, so I started...albeit a little early...with some of my fall decorating.
Ollie says, "Bring it on!"?
