Desert Quilting

Here in the sonoran desert it gets warm.  Okay, it gets hot.  Darn hot.  How do you quilt when it's hot?  You turn on the a/c!
We are too busy playing outdoors the other 3 seasons of the year.  Most of my quilting gets done during the summer months.  Right now I'm gearing up for hot weather.  I have quilts to bind, quilts to quilt...

I thought I'd show you a little of what's been happening in my quilt world.



It's just a snippet, and not a quilt, but I finished my daughter in law's afghan.  Try crocheting an afghan when it's 110 outside!  I do need a better picture of the afghan.  She picked out some gorgeous colors!

Of course the model (yes, asleep) is a downright cutie pie!

You can't possibly know how jealous I am that you are there and I am in TN. I want SO much to come home. $$$ to move now, and no $$$ to be found, not even in the couch cushions! You enjoy that for me. Today was sunny, for the first time in days, and it's going back to cloudy and wet for the next 4 days, minimum, with temps on Friday (April 1 mind you - when it ought to be starting to feel like summer in AZ!) at low 40s. If I won the lottery, I'd be home in a week.

we were 82 today, with Friday touching 100 - we'll see. I do love it here. Our desert skies - you named it well - they are perfect!
