Not much going on...

...because it's too darn hot!

I hope y'all are staying cool wherever you are.  Here it's been in the 100's with a forecast of high 100's.  And we were lucky enough to have our A/C die last night.  A repairman is supposed to be here today between 1:00 and 5:00.  I'm kinda hoping he shows up a little earlier.

Anyway...as the post title says, there's not much going on here.  I spent the weekend tidying up and reorganizing my quilting room.  All I think I did though was just rearrange the piles.  I did manage to go through some more UFO's and toss a few of them into a box to donate.  I tried working on them but I just wasn't into them.  I'm hoping someone in the guild will want to finish them either for themself or just as a charity project.

While cleaning up I came across these embroideries that I did a couple of years ago. 



I absolutely LOVE them but I still haven't figured out what to do with them.  What would you do with them?  The only thing I can think of is using them in a Triple Irish Chain.

Oh, those are adorable. A triple irish chain would be very cute.

I see your temperature forecast is just like ours - 100's with 100's coming.

Our a/c died on July 4th - ugh! The a/c guy did a patch job and the part finally arrived last week so he was able to repair it on Thursday. I hope your a/c guy comes very, very soon.

How cute are those!!! I think an irish chain would be a great one.

Ugh! So far our summer has been mild but we don't usually get that kind of heat until late August, early September. I don't look forward to that.

Those are adorable stitcheries. Sounds like you already have the best idea for them.
Hopefully your A/C will be fixed quickly. I know I wouldn't want to be without ours this time of year with the highs in the 100's.

Oh they are so sweet. Yes, we went back to very hot and muggy.

I totally agree with you about the heat. I'm all used up. Our peaches are ripening early because of the heat so there isn't going to be a whole lot of quilting around here for a while. The embroidered pieces are really cute. You could use them in a large nine patch for a baby quilt.

I'd finish each one individually and then hang them side by side or maybe put three in a runner and finish two individually.Adorable.

You don't say how large the embroideries are but they would be adorable for a child's quilt.
