A new project?

I' ve been thinking of starting a new quilting project. I won the Galaxy pattern from Suzanne (congrats on your new business venture!) and I had no doubt that I would want to do that pattern in black background and hand dyed fabrics. But do I really want to start another quilt, especially in this heat?!

I can see from the picture I need to take out a few pink/purples and replace them with a blue or two. Maybe swap out a yellow for another orange?

What's holding me back is the heat - I really don't want to turn on the iron! It even crossed my mind to see about setting the ironing board out the front door. Well, it's supposed to cool down some on Thursday, so that might be a good day to open up the windows and do some ironing. Yeah... I'll do that. :)


We finally got my husband's computer finally fixed for real. We were under delusions that it was better, but then it started crashing every 10 minutes or so. Back to the shop! It took the guys a few days to figure it out, but they finally reset the bios on the motherboard and it's been crashed free since. But poor guy, he was fighting with it all week. If I just replace the word "computer" with "sewing machine", suddenly I can relate very well how he feels! ;) But he has a laptop, and I have a back up sewing machine, so it's not like we have to go hobby-less for a bit anymore.

Tomorrow is my quilt guild meeting. Good thing my husband is gonna wake up when I do, cuz I'm planning to steal his quilt for show and tell. :D

I'm sorry it's too hot to iron. That just sounds....too hot! LOL

The quilt will be gorgeous, though, and I can't wait to see how it turns out!

I can't wait to see your new quilt- I iron by the AC in the summer if that helps :)

Have fun at guild meeting...I don't think your husband will miss the quilt in the heat :)
