Where's Summer?

If anyone out there has a little bit of extra Summer they don't need, please send it this way. Yesterday it barely made it to 60. Today we're celebrating the fact that it may get to 65! Tomorrow's forecast is 58 degrees. Just awful, I tell you!

On a brighter note, on Thursday Chara and I sewed up a storm over here. She made a log cabin pillow cover which I'm sure she'll share soon. I started a new project that's been brewing in my mind for a little while.

and Jo got along famously.

Chara worked on a project from her quilting class.

And her pillow cover.

A lot of scraps were generated.

We were so busy, the camera had a hard time keeping up.


  1. Sewing is such a pleasure... now you have reminded me of something even better: Sewing with a friend. It looks delightful.

  2. aww looks like so much fun! I wish I could sew with you gals. I'll be visiting the west coast next week,in Portland, but I think it's still not close to you. right?

  3. Awww indeed, that must have been fun to sew together! I really love yur room with the red walls, curtains and hearts! Some wonderful place to spend time in!

  4. I'll share some Oklahoma summer with you! Our projected high is 92, and after yesterday's hurricane-like rain & hail storm, the air is thick and heavy. Sixty-five sounds like heaven to me! :)

  5. What fun. So much for global warming, huh. Its going to be in the 60s this week in Utah, too.

  6. We need summer too! I think it hit 63 today. Tomorrow is actually my first day of summer. I hope I am as productive as you guys were!

  7. People always go silent and moody on me, when I tell them I'm sick of California sunshine, so I won't say it...

    But I am a winter person, already craving the few weeks of the year when I get to wear jeans instead of shorts...

    I'll shut up now.

  8. I would love to sew with a friend, but I don't have any friends that sew :(
    Fortunately there is blogland :)

  9. I wanna play, too! looks like a fabulous time. and your home is beautiful!!!

    it's cold here, too. about the same temps. gives me a few more weeks to scrape together a summer wardrobe. :0)

  10. Our whacky Pacific Northwest "summers" is just Mother Nature shining down us, and giving us that wonderful quilting weather. This is what I tell myself at least. Last night I actually turned the heater on!

    I love how Aurora and Jo got along so well, and the nice little scrap bowl between them. What a special sewing day! I'm ooing and aahing over the photos and diggin' all that warm red and the Ikea curtains. Swoonapalooza! That has got to be THE PERFECT red paint color!

    You photos look like a magazine shoot Anina!
