Hi everyone! Are you all enjoying the heat dome so far? Yeah, me neither. I'm seriously fantasizing about snowstorms right now. We had a minor bit of panic yesterday when we thought the AC had gone out, but it turned out that the batteries in the thermostat had died. Whew-- easy fix! It did get up to 87 in the house before we figured it out, though. I've never been so relieved to have dead batteries.
It's been a busy, hot week, but I managed to make a few of the Tiny Tuesday blocks:
Doesn't that Bear's Paw block look enormous? It's the same 5 inches as the others. I've said it before, but these blocks are so darned cute and most of them are fun to make. I can't wait to see how the whole quilt turns out.
I didn't make very many blue blocks during the blue month, so I went ahead and made a really simple blue one, just to have a bit more blue in the quilt. If you're interested in making one of these, I just used 2 inch squares from the 2-inch bin. Super easy and quite cute!
I also made the fish in orange, because they must be goldfish, you know? And the orange tabby cat got a gray basket. My fabric is kind of limited now and that's the piece I could find, in the string jar, of all places. The cat was really easy to make and I like how he turned out.
Finally, there is a pink polka dot pig! Good thing this little lady is cute, because she was a bear to put together. I had a hard time following and kept doing things backwards, plus I cut a lot of things the wrong size. Must have been the heat. Miraculously, she turned out the right size and reasonably pig-shaped. And she's covered in pink polka dots-- what could be better?
I think that catches me up until next Tuesday. Hope everyone stays nice and cool and safe during this awful heat. Have lots of Popsicles and lemonade. We are going to the movies because we have several house showings, then I might dive into some ice cream and wait for the heat to break. Don't forget to check your thermostat batteries!
