Who turned on the heat?


edited to add - when the heck did they start putting random ad links in posts and how to I get rid of them? The only link I put in this post is the one to 3 Stitches.

I'm not sure exactly how warm it got today but I had my own little tropical not-so-paradise going on. I guess it was a day-long hot flash with a side of migraine that didn't start to back off until nearly 5:00 this evening. But enough about that. I've got to start getting on here more often - if for no other reason than once I find something and figure out how to do it, it gets changed and I have to figure it out all over again. I am so not tech-savvy

Anyway - after I made quilts for all the kids for Christmas I just didn't have the time to make another one for the hubby so I made him one for our anniversary. I took it with me to the 3 Stitches get-a-way and sewed the label on it. All the time I was working on it he never figured out it was for him.

As usual, I can't name the fabrics since some of them have been in my stash for a couple of years but the pattern is from the book Simplify by Camille Roskelley. As you can see, it is a large throw size - he is hiding behind it while holding it up for the photo, just right for him to use to take a snooze in his recliner (though he doesn't need it today!)

I will try to get some pictures of the get-a-way up soon. My camera died before I took the first photo so I am having to get them off my phone before I can post them. Also, I usually try to take a picture of all my goodies when I get home but some of it has been put away already - I'll try to round up what I can and get some pictures with the camera. (battery has been charged!) There is always a theme to the get-a-way that no one knows except Pam - this year was Simple Pleasures and Pam did an awesome job. Loads of fun and lots of goodies!

Love the quilt you created for your husband, Tina!

Sorry about your heat wave; guess you can haul out the flip flops now.
