Dog Days of Summer

This has been a somewhat quiet week. It's been hot and I feel like I haven't had much energy. I've been watching the Olympics at night. I finished my fussy cut hexagon the other night. It uses the fabric I used to make my Lil Twister quilt that I gave my mom. I love how the design goes all the way around.

I'm also knitting a pair of socks. I'm hoping to have those done next week. They were a bit difficult when I first started them but I've become used to the pattern now. I feel as though I'm knitting the second sock much quicker than the first.



Joann's is also having a great sale. I had a 25% off coupon for my full purchase. They even had batting on sale for 50% off! I had never seen such a large spool of Sugar 'N Cream cotton yarn being sold at Joann's before. Of course, I just had to buy it! I think it will be great to make doilies. It looks like I can make a lot of doilies if I feel like it!We'll see how many I actually make!

I'm trying to get the backing ready for a couple of my quilt tops. It's just been so hot. I'm tired of feeling hot whenever I get into a project. I have air conditioning but I'm still hot! Am I the only one dreaming of fall?? I love the cool, crisp air as well as the lovely colors of autumn. It sounds so nice after all these hot days. I love summer but it just feels as though we've had too many hot days in a row. I feel like we need a break.

    1. The heat just makes me so lazy! Also, I worked a bit extra this week and I think it just tired me out! I'll be back to normal once the heat breaks. Glad you like the hexie!

  4. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that hexie! It's gorgeous! Yes, I am dreaming every day of Fall. I'm dreaming of an early change in weather. :)
    Next time there is a big sale at Joann's like that, I will be sure to try and make it on the first day instead of the last when all the good stuff is gone. :(

    1. Thanks, Sharon! That Joann's sale was great but I hate the crowds and the fact that the stock gets depleted so quickly. It's not humid here today but still hot. Fall sounds better and better!
