Applique Tuesday Not & Giveaway



Yesterday was a tad difficult.  Not only did I have the fun of having both boys here, but my TMJ and allergies were acting up, it got to 112 on the patio, and I had a guild meeting to go to. Sunday and Monday were at 110 too so by Tuesday I felt fried every time I stepped out of the house.  I meant to mention that my last DWM post was my 1,000 post for this blog, but my cooked brain couldn't remember much.

So this is the 1001 post for A Quilting Reader's Garden.  I can't believe I am there.  So most people do a giveaway or something - think I'll do one, too.  Did I get to any applique since last Tuesday? No, other than making more musical symbols and thinking about LE.  Every time I see one, I want to start on mine again.  And today I went off on a scouting trip for our next Seniors Field Trip at our church.  We took the train to Downtown LA, caught a subway and another train to Exposition Park and had a great time.  This one is doable!  Lots of things to see and do. We went specifically for the Pompeii exhibition, but people can do anything they want in the 4 hours they will have to explore before getting back on the trains.  Took all day.

Back to the Giveaway - I've decided to giveaway a quilt (one in photo, about 48" x 60").  This will run from today til next Tuesday, September 23rd, midnight.  There are several ways you can enter:
  1. comment on this post answering:  Can you work in the heat? 
  2. follow this blog and let me know you did, 
  3. mention this giveaway on your blog and let me know you did,
  4. Visit Rhonda, check out her BOMs and BOWs and tell me in a comment on this post which is your favorite;
  5. visit Karen here and leave a comment on her blog and let me know you did.
  6. Visit Mercy here and leave a comment  on her blog and let me know you did.
Be sure you are not a no-reply blogger because if you are your chances will be nil.  Good Luck!

  1. Congratulations on the 1001 post and thanks so much for the giveaway. I'm in Missouri and I can't function when the temp reaches 85 so can't even begin to imagine how you're braving the 100+ temps. Try and stay cool.

  6. I've been following you on Bloglovin for some time.
    We have a more temperate climate here in the UK and the hottest it has been this summer is 76f. We are having an Indian summer with the days starting misty and cool but beautiful warm and sunny afternoons. Perfect for gardening so quilting is on a back burner.
    Congratulations on your 1000 (and 1001) post- that shows commitment!

  7. I linked your post to my blog this morning too.

  8. I visited Rhonda's blog and had a look at her amazing BOWs and BOMs. I love her Texas Wildlife Adventure awaits, although it was difficult to choose. The jumping fish block was really fun.

  9. You sound completely done with the hot weather! Me too. I feel like a washed out rag in the afternoons. I really hate the heat and sit quietly working on something so I don't work up a huge sweat. Winter is on it's way - it has to be!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Luckily my basement studio is very COOL in the summer....so yes I can sew i the summer....but if were hot...NO!!! I lived in Arizona for 30 plus years and couldn't wait to get out of that heat!!! UGH!!!! Now 90 is HOT for me!!! LOL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I work VERY well in the heat, if it isn't humid. If it's humid, it can be 80 and I'm not very motivated! Thanks for the giveaway. That's a beautiful quilt and I'd love to own it. =) dezertsuz at gmail

    ReplyDelete
  12. I do follow your blog, by e-mail.

  13. I can't do anything in the heat plus I rarely go out unless it's to an air conditioned car.

    ReplyDelete
  14. That's really hard. I'll pick Leafing Through the Year...just because I love leaves.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I like all of Rhonda's everything! I first found her blog when she was doing the embroidered leaves, and that's still one of my favorites of her projects. dezertsuz at gmail

    ReplyDelete
  16. I tried to leave a comment on Mercy's blog, but she has the embedded comment box, so I couldn't. She called her block non-traditional, and the fabrics might have been, but I think that block would look right at home on any Baltimore Album quilt of the traditional time! I hope she can make another for herself - too beautiful not to have one!

  17. Congrats on your 1001 posts. YEAH! Long live A Quilting Reader's Garden blog!!
    I don't mind working in the heat but NOT in hot and humid weather. That's a killer. When it is hot humid and hazy I go hide in the basement. Thanks for the chance of winning such a lovely prize.

I just can't help myself!

  35. I don't go out in the heat unless I absolutely have too. I am blessed with a great air conditioner system. Couldn't work without it.

  42. Can I work in the heat? Yes but don't like to. Don't expect me to zip right along. It's more like a leisurely pace of stitch stitch stop stitch. LOL.

  60. Congratulations on your prolific blogging, and thanks for sharing this awesome quilt! I can't believe that you are giving something so beautiful away! We don't have air conditioning in our old farmhouse in Wisconsin, so you would think I would be used to working in the heat. But no, when the temperature gets above 90, the sewing room get abandoned and I sit in front of a fan and read.

  61. I follow you on Bloglovin. Thanks for the inspiration and your commentary on California. I lived there for awhile and still miss it, so I love reading about it. I envy you going to the Pompeii exhibit!

  68. Congratulations on your 1000 posts! I find it difficult to work with my fabrics when it's hot. This summer has been the warmest since 1903 in Norway. So I did nothing but my small hexies.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oh yes, I follow this blog, for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I can't work in the heat. When I lived alone, the only way I would notice the heat was by realizingy my productivity was really low. I am now married, and my husband keeps the house very cool. I go outside to thaw. :)

  90. Can I work in the heat? Not very well, I'm afraid, especially since I'm in the midst of menopause! Ugh. When I sew, I have 2 fans running and the AC pumped up just to keep me cool.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I visited Rhonda's blog and chose her Lazy Hearts as my favorite BOM. I love hearts on anything!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I'm a blog follower too!
    Heat doesn't bother me too much, especially for sewing, but humidity is another matter! We have high humidity in the summer, then head south for the winter, so more humidity. I'm afraid I resort to hiding in the air conditioning more than I'd like to admit!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Congrats! I can work in the heat, as long as I'm not doing something that makes me hotter.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I follow your blog, I do not work int he heat. My shop cannot keep up against 110 degree weather and I love it when it finally gets into the 70's here in Central TX. Please include me in your giveaway, I would share with Billie, lol.

  98. Hands down, on Rhonda's blog I would choose the Outhouses! I have visited her before for those same Outhouses! I just love them.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I live in Louisiana and that is the only way we work! And we always add heat to our food as well!

  101. I can work when it is hot but not in the direct sunshine. i don't quilt when it is hot but I will piece. thankfully at my house it doesn't get that hot very often.

    ReplyDelete
  102. When I lived up North (NY) I couldn't stand the heat and always ran into the air conditioner. I live in the South now and it doesn't bother me anymore, I guess my body got used to it. I also work outside most of the year so I was forced to acclimate to it. Congrats on your 1001 post!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I can work in the heat if I have a fan, rather have air conditioner. But sometimes you gotta do what ever if you are working on a quilt.

  105. Stopped by Rhonda's and could hardly pull myself away. I love all her BOM's. When Nature calls is so pretty, especially Block 3. We have some land in TN and we built a little cabin/shed.

  112. I love the pillow design and even more I love the scraps. (I usually pick out of the garbage what everyone else is throwing away!) I have loads of fun with my scraps, but perhaps it's a symbol of my unwillingness to commit (to cutting up larger pieces of beautiful fabric). I'm a scrapaholic and a fabricaholic. what can I say.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I don't do very well working in the heat! I've worked too long in ac to be able to do that... Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  114. I cannot work in the heat and heat for me is anything above 70 degrees. What a fantastic and generous prize!

    ReplyDelete
  115. I can work in the heat if I have a GOOD fan around! Of course, then there are issues with blowing pieces. . .

    ReplyDelete
  116. I went to Ravelly's blog and looked at Rhoda's designs - they are AMAZING!!! Hard to decide on a favourite quilt though! I really love the combination of embroidery and patchwork. Leafing through the Year is probably my #1 pick but I also LOVE A is for Ardvark, and In These SHoes - oh as well as the Hearts quilt.
