Cool It ☀

Where did the last two weeks go?  It seems the sun has already gone to my head and I don't mean my hair;)  All this heat is making me want to hibernate.  Yesterday we did just that with a heat advisory until 6am today!:/

 Even the pool was out of the question---just too dang hot even for this girl!  I have lived in AZ twice and GA twice so the heat usually doesn't get the best of me,but there are limits.  RAIN would be such a blessing:)

Better to talk about the farmers market perhaps. Today for instance we spent some time there and picked so many good fruits and veggies.  I love it!!!  Our staples have become almond milk,greek yogurt, LOTS of bananas and fruit at your beckoning call... hehehehe:)  Veggies popping up in lots of frying pan dishes and into our bellies..yummy!

In between I have been working on this vintage goodie.  I used various VS prints and Dream On cuz what else would be more appropriate:)  I pieced the three borders and the backing in one day.  During that time I decided to do a light white flannel for the middle.  Keepin' it light.

 This quilt woulde definitely cool me off from all the heat with the all that Kona white going on and the light pastel colors.

I have come to the realization that either I am going to do away with all of my VS collection (I know,I know don't freak out on me!).  I got my fill.  I am trying out Flickr first to see if I can do some swaps on there for fabric OF course.  My ISO list (what I am in search of) is here:::::    

I do love a pretty VS quilt and I love viewing them online designed by other quilters.  I don't know what happened in between cutting the VS's and piecing them.  Something didn't feel completely fun and enlightening.  I can't explain it.  There you have it though,  I am an odd one.  Oh well, time to stock up on some solids.  Those seem to keep my interest lately;)  lol!  You know you are a quilter change your mind constantly periodically??

Soon it will be some floor time for me pinning her up for her debut at the sewing machine and it's a quilting time  for me!  I am shooting for her to be done before my next craft show in the middle of July.

This is calling my name right at the moment though.

Our tummies are rumbling:):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):P

Talk to ya'll later,

Oh, Sara, that's a lovely quilt! But do tell me - what is VS? I'm sure it's something simple, it's just escaping me at the moment.... Whoop whoop!!

I was at the farmers market at 8am this morning... felt sorry for all those folks who would be out in the heat this morning.

Love your new flimsy... very soft and cool!

Pretty project! Hope you can find a swap you like.

I'm with you in that I am hibernating these days too. Anything over 85 degrees is too hot for me. I hope it doesn't last for too much longer but the forecast looks hot.

The hot weather is getting to me too, time to stay in and quilt. Love Dream On and it is perfect to put with vintage fabrics and sheets. Beautiful quilt top!
