TOO HOT !!! . . . AGAIN !!

Tuesday was another crazy day going here, there and back again. No school again due to "extreme heat". As of Tuesday evening it was the sixth day in a row with temperatures in the above 90 degree range. Add to that humidity and no air moving and it was pretty warm.  Any way, no school meant no transportation again.

I've divided my time in the usual manner . . . chores, dinner, dishes, laundry and the sewing machine (when I wasn't on the road playing taxi).

I've worked between two projects the last few days:

Art with Fabric and Growing Up BOM.

Unfortunately, when I ironed the design on to the fabric, I did them all on one color instead of two as instructed. So I'll have to go back and redo half of these.

In the meantime, I have finished the applique on Art with Fabric and will sandwich and quilt Wednesday afternoon. 

As is my usual habit, I do things like dinner prep and laundry when I'm sewing. It's warm enough to dry laundry outside on the line. It's supposed to be our last "hot" day for the next week with a much overdue cold front coming in overnight, hopefully bringing some much needed rain.

While we were out hanging up laundry I found a tomato growing out of my compost bin.

It's too late for it to produce anything.

And the trees are expressing their distress with the lack of rain.

It's autumn, even though the thermometer doesn't show it and the leaves are falling like snowflakes - or raindrops, for those of you not ready for "that" season.

Well, I'm off to do my quilting.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with creativity and productivity.

Leaves are all that are falling here, too. I've even watered the flowers a couple of times out front. Congratulations on getting something done!
