WIPs Be Gone Week 35

On my patio yesterday, it was 107.  Today, it is 108.  I'm very grateful that I have air for a second summer that is keeping the room I'm in a nice 82 degrees.  It feel like heaven compared to outside.

But I just feel so enervated. It's all I can do to type these few lines. No energy to take photos of the two baby charity quilt tops I made last week end. No energy period.

So let's link cooling photos of winter quilts
or refreshing waters. Something, anything to help us endure these temps.  I know my friends and family in the South are shaking their heads at me as they have high temps too and with their humidity - a heat index of 117 last week.  So who am I to complain?

Linky below.  Stay cool myfriends! I'm off to put on my cooling neckcloth, darken this room and take a nap.


  1. you have it so hot and here in Arkansas we have had an usual cool spell for the end of August - barely has made it to 80 degrees each day this week, and down to 60 at night, I have had the windows open all week and it has been so nice - heat starts to come back this weekend but wow - what a treat this has been.

  2. Now that's hot! I can totally relate to how that sort of heat sucked the energy out of one. We are having a abnormally cool spell here in Ohio, too! But at least we are getting some rain finally. Hope you get a cool down soon.

  3. Glad you have that A/C. I keep my bedroom at 74 and the family room at 76. At least Mick decided not to golf next week. Me, you know I'm inside. :) Sending you some energy.

  4. Yes Angie, I am in you neighborhood and feel the same way. Looking forward to some cool days, soon.

  5. Wow, that's hot for you, isn't it? With humidity here, I usually can't stand it at 82 inside, and try to keep it no lower than 77, except at night. Today, I forgot to turn it back up, and it's so nice. =) Fall is coming!

  6. It's supposed to get pretty warm here in Minnesota too--good idea to think about those "wintry" projects!!

  7. We've lucked out on the high heat this year. It is miserable when it gets that hot.


Thank you for stopping by. It's always nice to hear from you. I try to reply to each and every one of you, but sometimes life gets in the way. I hope you understand. Blessings.

Back to Quilting

  Back to quilting.  After my mishap, it was slow going to return to working in the sewing room. Since I could only piece, I began two more ...
