Oh my word... we are in the middle of our first heat wave of the summer season. It was a blistering 31 degrees today which is a total body shock when you've rocketed there from something like 15 degrees the day before *grin*. I know some of you are thinking wimpy, wimpy, wimpy but I'm a cold weather girl and must say I just melt when it gets this hot :)
We spent most of the day indoors trying to keep cool and the forecast is for a couple more days of this until we might get a little bit of cooler weather again. It will give me some time to work on some of my sewing projects *grin*. I've actually been thinking of digging out all of my christmas fabrics that I want to turn into fabric bags for the holiday season. Last year I started making things to stock the shop with in October and it just wasn't early enough so perhaps starting in July will do the trick this year!
I've got my eye on a few vintage hand crank sewing machines on eBay to right now :) My mom has an older treddle singer sewing machine that is in a large cabinet and we've been playing around with it a bit but I thought it would be a lot of fun to just have a table top model that I could pack with when we go camping and L and I could do little quilting projects together without the need for electricity. There always seems to be a lull in the days while camping when she has run out of bugs to follow or trails to explore and I know she would just love to sew with me :)
Ahh, I think I can finally feel the heat subsiding a bit as the sun has completely slipped away now and the darkness is enveloping our home. Hope you all aren't getting to roasted by the sun to :)
