Thank goodness for a cool down here. I was sitting under the quilt in record breaking humidity and ninety degree temperatures! That was kind of nuts, but I guess I do get kind of obsessed once I start sewing. I cannot put it down, and will sit, happily, for as long as I can get away with it. My finger tips are hard and tender, both. We are bound to have more hot days, so I will start a smaller, lighter hand sewing project for traveling and waiting in cars... probably more kitchen cloths.
Cool weather is also most conducive to movement, so later today I will get out and walk, wander, wonder and move.
Are you taking the challenge?
Would you like to be added to a list of participants?
Let me know. I would be happy to include you and your blog.
Either way, I hope you enjoy your thirty days.
Enjoyed extra time in the garden and with our animals. Our garden beds, that we set up in the side yard, are now between the barn and the Chicken run... in sight, we hope they will get more time and attention. Alex and Mitchell refilled the beds for me. We will need more soil, though. I'd say time to plant our cool season crops, but our summer has just begun, and I don't expect a hint of cool weather until November! The chicas are growing, growing, growing. I gave everyone a cooling mist from the garden hose, and lost of odds and ends from veggie scraps. The goats ate some tomatoes, which I thought was funny. And that was my outside and moving effort for the day. I think after a cool shower, I'll add a few stretches before sleep. Ah, sleep. I could use some.
The quilt is coming along magnificently! Please let me know if you need a set of chess pieces -- we honestly have a full set and they are a little large and a little heavy -- could be perfect for chess outdoors on a quilt! (Dean went to chess camp for 3 years and each year they'd get a set; we've already given away one so we still have [and *just* unpacked] the last extra set.)
