It seems like ages since I’ve stitched any of these little blocks, but on the weekend I got out the box that contains the pieces for them and made 10 more. Now I’m up to 103 of these little blocks. As they finish at 2 3/8″ and, if my calculations are correct, I’ll need about 570 of them to make even a lap quilt. That seems rather daunting. Perhaps these really are meant for a small teddy bear/doll’s quilt.
This one is on the other side of the entrance and you can see one of the buildings across the street reflected in the black marble.
There are tons of these little roses at the front of the building. They bloom endlessly throughout the summer and well into the fall.
It sounds like we’re going into an extremely hot week with temperatures in the 90s and humidex readings that will reach upwards of 110. I like hot weather, but the humidity can be a bit hard to take — I think we’ll need gills to breathe by the time we reach mid-week. I wonder how long it will take before they’re asking people to limit their use of electricity during peak hours. While we hardly ever have to put the air conditioning on in the living room, I have a feeling that this week we’ll probably be turning it on rather frequently.
It was hot during the weekend, but nowhere near as hot as it’s going to be. Where was Smudge hanging out? In his kitty bed! I mistakenly assumed that those kitty beds would be too warm during the hot weather, but it seems I was wrong.
