HAS SOMEONE GOT A FAN?

It is just hot here, too hot to do anything apart from gaping at the garden getting dry!


Fortunately the house is more or less cool (depends on the floors) so that we can still sleep and move around.
My confetti quilt is growing. I am thinking of adding 3 more rows of squares, add small white sashing in between and then ponder for a border.

As you can imagine I am not wearing these at the moment although they are very comfy and soft. I am proud to show my first ownmade handspun socks and I must say they won´t be the last!
I received some rovings from England and I started dyeing them (they dry so fast in the heat, it has to be good for something!) so that next time I will present some more homespun.

Till then I wish you a cool breeze and a nice refreshing drink on the patio.

Coucou soeurette,
Maman demande pourquoi encore des chaussettes vertes? Elle en a deja!!
Maman n'a pas le temps de faire du patch a cause... de la peche! (elle te dira que c'est parce qu'elle est trop occupee a me faire a manger et a garder mes enfants, mais crois moi, ses priorites sont ailleurs!!)
allez, bisous de la Bretagne sous la canicule! I wish!

Come on over-we have air conditioning! I hope it cools down soon before you melt.

Congratulations on your gorgeous socks. I love the pattern and the color. The handspun looks nice and even too. Great job.

It is very hot and humid here too and Toronto just experienced its' first tornado on the outskirts of the city. Crazy weather.

Your confetti blocks are gorgeous and those socks will be nice and cozy this coming winter.
