Quilting and 105 degree Weather...
Click Images to Enlarge:
We have had temperatures over 100 degrees this week.
Rare for the Coastal Mountain Range of Western Oregon.
I have spent a few mornings quilting at 5am to beat the heat of the day.
This is the last of the 3 BIG flowers to be machine quilted.
I couldn't resist putting some hot pink thread on those black flower petals.
It has cooled down today, so I am hoping to get a few hours of quilting in tonight, maybe even finish this quilt...
Monday I found this star shaped metal gear in a thrift store...
I am becoming obsessed with all things RUSTY.
Tuesday I put the metal star onto some fabric soaked in vinegar, along with a few horse shoes from Dancer & Freckles....the start of a new rust dye piece.
I scraped out the rust from the bottom of Brad's tool box and sprinkled it across the the fabric to add a bit more rust. It is covered up with plastic to keep it moist. I will check it in a few days to see how the rust is transferring to the fabric.
I can dry a load of laundry in an hour in 105 degree temperature!
The new flowerbed behind the house is full of these gorgeous glads
Just love the yellow centers in these pink glads.
Suzy spent the night at the doctor last night.
She had minor surgery.
We brought her home today.
She is recovering nicely.
Love those star shaped centers!
