August Sew Fun

IMG_5121IMG_5120Holiday creativity was the focus this month. These are sweet little girl aprons that could be started now and actually finished in time for Christmas.


IMG_5113IMG_5118 As you can see there was a lot of emphasis on placemats, table cloths and runners as well as bed runners and pillows which make perfect gifts for yourself or someone special.   These are terrific because they don’t take a long time to make, but make a big splash.  IMG_5119This book by Leisure Arts has several nice runners.

And that, my friends, was the Quality Sewing infomercial for August, called “Sew Fun”.   Then over to Lowe’s to get some shelves cut and back to all those wonderful things, we need to get done in the course of a day to survive.  I hope all of you are doing okay with the heat wave.  It was 81 here today and is scheduled to go to 90 tomorrow  ( I’ll be in a class with air conditioning).  Then up to 95 for Friday and Saturday – I may be moving to the basement.   Then we drop back to upper 70s and lower 80s for a week IF the forecast is correct.   So take care, drink fluids, rest, and survive.

    It was 93 in our backyard a bit ago, and the plants weren’t enjoying it. It sure is good to see some sunshine, but a little hot for me. Love that apron pattern. It’s a cute one.

      I’ll bet it got up to 95 like it did here. It does take a lot of extra watering, doesn’t it.
