"Hot" Summer Sewing!

Greetings from St. George. We are spending a very hot weekend doing things we are both passionate about. Stuart is out spotting deer for his hunt this fall and I am doing some sewing. And first thing in the morning, before it gets way hot, we are going to a clay target shoot and ice cream social. Yes, it's very warm here, today's high temperature is supposed to get 104. Thank goodness for air conditioning!I am working on a quilt out of Em's book "Geared for Guys". She has asked me to make Urban Decay for an upcoming blog tour of quilts made by different quilt bloggers. All the quilts will be different. We were asked to put our own flare on the quilt. I am using a variety of fabrics, but mostly Denise Schmidt's. There are a few changes I am making to the quilt. Watch for it later in July.
Well, here's to a very fun "hot" sewing weekend. I hope you can find a "cool" spot to do the same. Shannon

I have that same orange and blue floral. I fell in love and bought 2 yards. Not sure what I'm gonna do with yet though. Have fun!

I like it hot but I guess this is a little to much! Well, the ice cream will cool you down you just have to eat lots of it! Sounds great to have plenty of time to sew over the weekend on a fun project! Enjoy!
