Who knows the song that the title of this post is from? It's been running thru' my head this weekend. (I know what it is, just wondering if you do!)
What a Summer it's been for hot, humid weather!
I have to say, I'm so grateful to have air-conditioning. About seven years ago I had a geothermal system installed to heat and cool my house. Before that I had never lived in a house with air-conditioning.
I remember the year I was pregnant with my daughter, 1989, it must have been this kind of Summer and we had to pretty well live in the basement. I remember walking up the stairs and feeling the wall of heat on the main floor. Again, so grateful for the A/C.
Just saying....I'm not complaining about the weather!!! I'll save that for February :)
I'm happy to report that I've been on track with my applique this month. I set an achievable goal to try to have the final border done for my FlowerGarden quilt.
This weekend I'm working on appliqueing down the vine, as I've got all the leaves done that needed to be tucked under the vine.
I started this morning by hitting the mid-way part of the stem and ended with only a quarter of the way to go...I'm good with that!
We have a busy day planned today, hosting a welcome party for my grandson, Lachlan, but I hope to have a few moments of quiet this evening to finish the stem...it will feel like I'm over the hump on this border, I think.
I'll have to remember to schedule this quilt into the queue for the longarm in September....since my goal is to have it ready for my trunk show in October.
I'd better go make the finishing touches for the party today. We have some vegan guests, so we have accommodated with a couple of dishes....one of them being a Falafel salad.
I prepared it yesterday and it turned out yummy....then I thought it would be improved by a bit of feta cheese (what isn't, right?), and as soon as I mixed it in I realised it was no longer a vegan dish! Another moment where the word "crapola" from this post comes in handy! Could the bits of feta pose as tofu?, probably not.
I'm linking up this morning with Kathy's Quilts once again for some Slow Sunday Stitching and with Quilting is More Fun Than Housework for OhScrap!
Have a wonderful Summer's day!
