It's Hot Again!

This morning Steph and I left the house at 7:15 for her early morning counseling appointment. It was so cold! I turned the heater on in the car. This afternoon we're getting east winds and it's 90 degrees! It's supposed to be this way for the next 3 days. I'm hoping this is summer's last blast of heat. It's been a very hot summer here and we've had record heat several times. I want Fall!

I'm dying to start decorating for Fall but am going to hold back until at least October 1st. My front porch needs a good cleaning from the summer grime and cobwebs. That will be the first order of business. Then on to the pretty Fall colors and pumpkins.

Later in the week I'm hoping to get started on a baby quilt for a dear friend's grandbaby that is due to arrive in December. I'm trying to decide between a rag quilt or a regular quilt. Since I've not done a regular one before this might be the time to try since it will be a small project. I will post pictures of the progress. It will also be my first adventure in machine quilting but the pattern calls for straight line quilting through each square so that should be fairly simple. It will give me practice with handling the quilt in the sewing machine, etc.

Hope you're all having a great day!

Hi Kay!
Summer is still hangin' on here, but not near as warm as what you are having! Our nights are down in the 50's, so we get a chance to cool down. The gardens are just about done, and for that I am thankful.

Oh, come on Kay. Get those decorations out and you'll have that done when fall gets here to enjoy! You know you want to! Then you won't have to stop quilting to get that done. Enjoy that decor; fall goes pretty fast!
