When it's hot...

Here's what I do when it's 96 degrees with a 104 heat index.  I stay inside bowing to the AC and finish up some projects.  This was a kit purchased by my friend Tammy a couple of years ago.  She got the pieces cut out and fused last summer, then left for AZ in Oct.  When she came back in April, she and her husband packed up and sold most of their household, since they sold the house, and moved to the lake for the summer.  This project ended up on my pile of things she gave me.  Today I quilted and finished it.

 This was fun to quilt.  I left some of the petals free of stitching so they became three dimensional.
 Those petals just naturally curled over.  It's hard to see the quilting but the inside of the sunflower is densely quilted with little circles.
This will be going back to Tammy so she can take it to AZ when they leave in October.

It's hard to believe that this is my 100th post.  I never thought I would be doing this much posting when I started blogging last November.  I didn't think I had that much going on that would be of interest enough to write about.  Well, maybe it's not interesting to anyone else but I enjoy looking back on older posts.  After all, this is my blogging journal.  

Tomorrow is going to be hot again.  I think I'll  practice this month's FMQ lesson.  Wednesday No. 38 and I are going to the fair to see if I won any ribbons, Thursday night is my quilt guild meeting.  Have a good week, everyone.

This is very pretty. Blogging gets into your blood, doesn't it? I thought I would link up to design wall Monday and call it good. Then I just kept on typing.

What a generous friend you are! The quilt turned out beautiful. I know what you mean about bowing to the air conditioner, we've had a few hot hot hot days here too. I know for a fact that your FMQ skills are top notch. Congraulations on your blogging journal I know that I enjoy following it. ;)
