Be Careful What You Wish For

We wanted warm weather. We got WARM weather. Today 85 degrees and humid. At 10 AM! I guess my blood is still too thick (fat?) to be able to stand this. 

There was a thunderstorm forecast for last night, but it didn't happen. Would it have cooled the weather down, or just made it more humid? I'm being such a baby, aren't I? 

I have only been wearing these sandals a few days, and I have sandal tan. It's not like I've been sitting out trying to tan my feet, it's just from walking Trixie about.

 
Feet are funny looking things, aren't they? Feet and knees. Miraculous in all that they can do, but funny looking. At least in my opinion.

I got working on a new project last night. Bummer, I can't turn this photo. Try to read it sideways, OK?
It;s Dilly Dally by Thimble Blossoms. It takes every piece of 2 charm packs. This is the one I got:

The colors are delicious. I think they look like creamsicles, or melon-colored. Maybe ideas for the quilt name? I'm using cream for the background. The packs came with 2 squares each of solid cream, and I need every square! No contrast. 

So off to the quilt shop. We went to Sandy's Quilt Shop in Punta Gorda, Florida. Very nice people. I happened to be the only customer so late on a Saturday, so they all helped me find 2 fabrics to substitute for the creams. Such service! Very happy. I felt embarrassed that all I needed was 1/4 yard of each. But I'm sure I'll be back. Here are some pictures of the store. I forgot to take pics of the store front tho.


I really like all the colors in a shop. All the fabrics sorted by color. So pretty.
