Heat wave

It's official. We have a heat wave happening. Same temperature yesterday but it felt cooler because the humidity was down.

Hmm, I seem to be stuck in plain patchwork for these quick baby quilts. I should think about storing us some half square triangles or something. ;)

But I learned one time to let the fabric do the work so here we have Daddy's work logo for a backing, a subtle pattern that fits momma's decor, and something cuddly for the baby.

My current helper. I gave him bread to toss to the chickens. What I didn't realize was that he can open the gate so he and the dog had a wonderful time chasing chickens while I was working on the other side of the yard. oops! He also showed me how the broody hen pecked him as he caught one of her chicks to hold. Tough little guy! No harm done except I expect there will be a bit of a barn dance when they see me take him home today. .

I hope you can stay cool. I expect that you don't have air conditioning there. We would die without it here!

I loved the way you justified that quilt. I think it will be brilliant and loved by both daddy and momma. Baby will reap the rewards and spoils.

Loved your last sentence. Laughed till I nearly fell off the chair. And do try to keep your cool, no matter what the temperature. It's just too hot for human and beast alike.
