Theresa,,
do you still live on Jefferson? if so, I'll send you a wine boot/cozi ,, you can take it apart to see how to make it..
You'll need 4 4" sq..
put 2 together wst, then with the remaining 2 pc., fold into 2 triangles and press,, then open and place the 2 triangles rst, with the ironed seam together, stitch up about 1" at the 2 corners that are ironed, then fold back into triangles with the conjoined 2 pieces..
Then lay the joined triangles ontop of the other 2 pieces,,, sew all together,,,trim corners, then flip right side out... and voila"

With the lessening of covid, classes are returning. I signed up for a little quilt group and an embroidery refresher class. So much fun to have something to look forward to again. It was 108 here today. I was outside long enough to pot three plants and water the yard. Tomorrow is projected to be 111. We are being asked to turn up the A/C, not run any appliances, and turn off the tv and lights. We are also only supposed to water twice a week due to water shortage. I guess I'll sit in the dark and meditate on keeping my garden alive.

Oh yikes Judith. Awful temps. What are you doing to stay comfortable? Fall can't get here soon enough this year.

I hate to admit it. but I'm doing as little as possible. Well, that's not exactly true. Lots of sittin' work -- sewing, daydreaming about winter, petting the cats, cool showers. Living in town means water pipes run under hot asphalt so our "cold" water is 91 degrees. One of the things I miss about living in the country where we had nice cold well water.

Oh Judith.. I feel for you...
I luv going outside to water my garden,, and drink (yes, I do that) from the water hose,, the water is ice cold.. thank goodness for deep wells...

We are averaging in the mid 90's up here,, and I suspect Jean is too!

Are they doing Rolling Brown Outs by you?
I remember having them in Moorpark,, some years when we would have long stretches of heat in the high 90's.

Stay cool,, maybe get a kiddie pool,, and sit in the shade with you feet soaking in it.. I actually have a galvanized wash tub that I do that with,, add a little bit of lavender E.O. and epsom salt,, and relax with a tall glass of Ice Tea and a good magazine.

We are asked to cool down our houses and turn off the a/c from 5 to 8pm. Our house was built in 1950, the era of mild weather, cheap power, and no insulation. We do have some insulation up in the crawl space and have added it in two of the rooms that were remodeled but if it gets too hot before 8 then sometimes I just sit in the bathtub and read a book.

Oh Judith, how awful . . . come up to Idaho. I have a nice guest room, a/c, and a lovely studio with two sewing machines -- we can play in the cool. In the meantime watch for a cool care package that includes the little journal I promised my quiltlet pals a while back. Hang in there. Get those reusable cold packs for sprains and put them on your feet or head or whatever feels best.

Thank you Jean. I am looking forward to next Friday -- the forecast is for 88. I may have to wear a sweater! I bought a nice little ice maker that makes the cutest ice cubes that look like hollow bullets and I have the homework from my embroidery class to keep me busy. Taco salad for dinner. I've lived in this valley for 50 years and still haven't gotten used to the heat. I snagged the books from the travelling craft box too. I think we now have the heat you all had last week.

Hand embroidery. I'm taking a refresher course. Discovering a few things I didn't know. You really can teach an old dog new tricks.

Judith I don't know how you can deal with that heat. I'd be melting. I have to be in the a.c. or the heat makes me sick. I was born and raised in upstate NY and I never remember it being hot like this in the summers. I'm sure it was because I was always getting sunburned and we were at the lake all summer. But the nights and early morning was always cool
It is to be 88 today with heat index of 100 again. We have had rain but it only makes it muggy. I just stay in on days like this.

We are getting a break in the heat today; right now it's 88 with a little breeze. I think the fog must be in the Bay Area. That usually cools us down a bit. I grew up in the Bay Area where 80 is a hot day and nobody needs a/c. It seems strange to me to hear you all talking about rain. We never have rain in the summer; we can go six months without any. Sometimes we get some thunder and lightening and a few sprinkles around my son's birthday - July 21st, but that hasn't happened for several years. A little rain would be most welcome about now.

Seems it never rains in Southern California.
Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before.

Oh Judith I am so sorry you have to deal with all that and the super high temps. We hit 104 here last week and that was rough I couldnít imagine 111. These temps and no rain have been rough. We are also on water restrictions. Itís actually kind of scary. Stay cool!

Marie,,, darn you! now I am hummming that tune in my head!!!! lol!

As for us up here in the Inland North West,, we are once again having unsual hot drought weather... and way to many fires,, Once again California, Oregon, Idaho Montana an WASH... we are all having fires.. you would think after the last 2 years of horrible fires,, there would be nothing left to burn..

The good think is, we have several Generators so we have a back up source for power,, but not enough to run the whole house..

That being said.. it's time for me to go have another tall glass of iced tea...

Hot and smoky here today too. The smoke just wipes me out. But I did work on my litt1e (4-1/2x3-1/4") journal covers today. I bought a pack of 24 blank journals on sale. So I guess everyone on my Christmas list will be getting them for Christmas. They are quick and fun to do and are made entirely in the hoop -- easy peasy. I love your Christmas swirls Grace -- too cute and they look quick and easy too. Wow -- thinking about Christmas already . . . well, actually it's SNOW that I'm craving at the moment.
Nite all . . .

Haha! yep,, looking forward to (a reasonable amount of) snow

All I need are a couple of fat quarters, or enough assorted fabrics to cut 16 - 5" squares,,
then fold into triangles,, and then fold again into a smaller triangle.
cut out 2 - 4 1/2" circles then sew flip and litely fill with fiber fill and sew closed..
start stitching one corner of each triangle to the puff. make sure the pleated corners are all on the same side...
once they are all attached,, now sew the opposite corner down.. knot and decorate.

Grace, that swirl is neat. Are you going to hang them from your tree as well? I bet some Christmas fabrics would look great. I havenít even started thinking about Christmas, but I guess I better if Iím going to be making things!
