What A Relief

We've been having true summer heat lately. I used to tolerate it much better than I seem to do now. Plus we now have a neighbor who apparently likes to cook outdoors. That has made the air quality too poor for me to open the windows to relieve the heat in the house. We've had to run our portable air conditioner earlier and longer than in previous years. Husband is looking into more efficient ways to cool our home. It's also been a while since we've had any appreciable precipitation. But this morning we woke up to rain and cooler temperatures. Hurray! On top of that, I felt better physically today than I have in days. There'd be no better opportunity to put bindings on quilts so that's what I did today. 😁

The red and white quilt in the middle of the stack did not get its' binding today but the other two did. Here's a detail shot of the quilting on the quilt at the bottom of the stack. 
I tried to get a shot of the quilting on the Halloween quilt too but I'm afraid it's pretty hard to discern. That's a Disappearing 9 Patch quilt. I had James quilt the "sashing" so the novelty prints would stand out. It will be interesting to see how it looks after it's been laundered. 
As you can see, I figured out how to get pictures to load again. Turns out all I needed to do was clear my computer's cache. Next up will be to figure out how to get the pictures where I want them in the blog post more easily. 😒



  1. I'm glad you had a good day - the heat certainly drains me these days and I can't seem to stand the sun beating down on my head which is unfortunate as we are having a heatwave in my part of France at present. No air conditioning but nice thick walls and shutters does the trick quite well inside the house so if I'm staying inside I may as well get on and do something with fabric - Kate's F2F blocks come to mind.

  2. Glad you had a better day - and congrats on the bindings. Progress feels so good.

  3. Well done, there are a number of things to be relieved about, Sue, including getting your photos onto the blog. I love the quilting patterns on the blue and cream quilt. It looks very elegant.

  4. What lovely work James does; it really shows to advantage on that blue and cream section. Congratulations on your heat-busting rain. I must admit I'm not looking forward to the start of the Wet in a few months; for us, rain doesn't mean the heat gets any less.

  5. Oooh, I like that quilting, too! He's doing a great job for you.
