Hot Stuff!

It's been quite slow around here.  I'm not moving very fast...or getting much done.  Though I would prefer to stay indoors in the air conditioning, there are times when I must go drive to/from potty Tag...important times like that.  I tell ya...the heat and humidity seem to sap whatever energy I have right out of me. 

I know there are places much hotter and people much worse off than me, so I am not really complaining.  Just saying that not much has been getting done during this heat wave.

I did have a finish, though!  Here it is...  

It's a runner for my of the panels I had made for curtains (see this post) and didn't use.  I used the same linen/cotton blend for the back that I used on the front.  (looks different color because I took the photos in different rooms at different times of photo is more accurate.)
Kashmir III by Sentimental Studios for Moda
Essex Linen by Robert Kaufman in Natural
Pattern by Erin of Why Not Sew? fame.
22 x 48 after laundering.

The runner matches this yet-to-be-finished quilt top first shown here.  

This is the first time that I've used linen (55% linen/45% cotton blend) and I must say, I am very happy with it.  

I've been doing some knitting, too.  I also have an embroidery project in the beginning stages.

I'm very happy that it is Friday night...going to stitch and sew all weekend!  

Hope you have a good weekend, too.  Stay cool! 

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."    Jeremiah 29:11

Looks good, Jacque- I like! I love July, but it is best served by the pool, or indoors with the A/C!

The heat is slowing me down here too! I spend most of my time at home stitching... instead of cooking and cleaning... lol! The runner finished up great! Enjoy the weekend!
