Sew, sew, sew your boat

The past couple of weeks have been horribly hot and humid. We have a/c in the house, but just old window rattlers. They are strategically placed to the rooms we spend the most time in. Sadly, my sewing studio is not one of them.

Still, as long as the door is kept open, it’s reasonably comfortable in there. Until you turn the iron on.

I put a fan in the room, and it helps quite a bit. Unless you’re a cat at floor level…

He could easily go to any of the rooms that are cooler, or even lay in the hall between this room and the bedroom (which has an a/c unit), but no… he has to be right with me at all times.

I figure he can self regulate, so I just went about my sewing. And tried not to step on him, because of course, he’s directly in the path between the sewing machine and the cutting table.

With his “assistance” I finished up two more blocks for my Ahoy Matey quilt.

It’s a fun block that goes together pretty quick when you have all the pieces cut and ready to sew. I now have four blocks complete…

With plans for at least four more.

This one is gonna be cute!

    Your quilts are always beautiful! You have a good eye for color and fabric matching. My grandmother made quilts and I still have mine that she made as a wedding present 44 years ago.

    Burton is such a lover!

    Burton is truly devoted to you. How sweet! Love your fabric and those new blocks. Everything is going in the right direction. I usually have to rip at least once on something like that.

    I LOVE those blocks!!!!
    My little sewing room is hot also. The humidity in there is around 75 with the central AC and two de-humidifiers running in the lower level. I thought I was going to die in there the other day. If we don’t break this 90 degree habit soon I swear I am going to melt.


  4. It’s still ridiculously hot and humid here too. Dennis even threw a bit of a temper tantrum about it today and that is totally unlike him. He’s the most patient man ever but it just got to be too much.
    Love those beautiful quilt blocks and it’s good that you have Lord Burton to keep you company and on track and of couse he has to be under your feet. Where else would he be? :-). I’ve read every single one of your posts but 99.9% of the time when I tried to comment on a blog, Blogger would delete the comment. I didn’t take my laptop on such a short trip. But I do think I kept caught up on your news.
    Blessings and hugs,
