Wishing my life away....wishing for October!!!!!!!!!!!

It has been so hot. I'm a southern girl but I am not use to this. Well really I was raised on the Gulf Coast, we always had a breeze. Yes I do have
air conditioning so I am really blessed and I feel quilty for complaining.
Georgia has never been so hot in so many days in a row. shewwwwwww.

But I have some things to show and blog about. This little gadet is wonderful for me. Yes a YO YO maker. I have a quilt that has a lot of yo yos on it. I really have trouble making yoyos but this has made it so easy for me. I bought the small one, I think I will get the bigger one also.

Went to Sweet Home Quilt Company and found the cutiest pattern for an easy table runner. It requires 2 honey buns and some extra fabric. I made this up in about 2 hours. A really quick gift to make up.

Also just had to show what wonderful friends do. Our Guild had our Spring dinner and someone made everyone in the guild a needle holder with our initals on it. I just love it and use it all the time for hand work.
Also a friend went to Cananda for vacation and brought me back a pin cushion with the Maple Leaf on it. It will be added to my collection. Quilting friends are the best.

And I enjoy reading everyones blogs. I get so many ideas and love to comment. I'm not an everyday blogger but I feel a part of a really good
community. Bye going to stick my head in the frig. to cool off.


  1. I know how you feel with the heat...it's hot here too. How nice for that person to make everyone a needle holder! I like your tablerunner...and that watermelon bowl!


  2. The heat has been unbearable in the Midwest also.
    I've resorted to a FAN plus my central air conditioner. UGH!

    However, your goodies are so cute!! What is the name of your table runner pattern?

  3. Yo-Yo makers are the best! Love your table runner - it is gorgeous.

    Hope you get some cooler weather soon! We are waiting for the wet and wintry weather to end here:)
