Boy is it HOT today

Hello everyone,

We have finally gotten the hot summer weather now. According to the weather app on my phone we got to 34 degrees today which is normal for our Summer but we had a Heat Index of 37 degrees.  Not sure what the Heat Index is (maybe the opposite of Wind Chill Factor) but the wind was even hot today and it certainly felt more like 37 than 34.

The kids, mum and I have now ventured out of the house and I am blogging beside the pool with a cold drink and the others are playing in the water.  The breeze is lovely now too.  I was going to get my camera to show you but I really don't want to get up and walk inside now.

And now for the picture content of this post....

Quilted and Bound
Lovely fabrics
So I will show you some pictures from Ivanka's quilt I finished last year. Ivanka made this beautiful quilt for her daughters wedding. Which happened to be on the same day as my anniversary, so I knew when I had to have it finished by. Time was gettting short during the making of the quilt, that at one point Ivanka didn't think it was going to be done in time. So Jenny roped some girls in and they got the hexagons basted and stitched together, I think all 70 something of them. So the quilt then got to me in time, I got it back to Ivanka and It was bound with a couple of days spare before the wedding.

The Bride was very happy with her gift from her mother. So here are the pictures. As always the colours are not accurate. Most of the fabric came from Moda Evening Mist, and the graduation in the rings is just fabulous

Stay cool or warm (whichever is needed) and Good Night for now.
