Still hot here and still juggling fuses and lights but I must say we're grateful to have fans and even a small a/c unit so there's at least one cool-ish room in the house. I wait until the sun gets around and then I can spend some time working on my landscape project. I keep the curtains drawn early in the day so it's pretty dark in here to be working. Here's the progress so far....
-THESE are rather cute, useful and look as though they would be fun to make.
- There are some cute ideas if you scroll down HERE.
- For those who like hexies and have some scrap fabrics to use up, perhaps making one (or more!) of THESE would be perfect.
- There's more beautiful eye candy HERE.
Found this cute quote to share with you today..."Heat makes things expand. So I don't have a weight problem. I'm just hot"
Hi Maryanne oh wow your landscape is amazing and coming along beautifully,you are a very talented lady,well done,keep cool and safe my friend xxReplyDelete
Thank you! Now comes the fun part - creating the vehicle. Trying to stay cool and hoping for some rain.Delete
Your landscape is coming together so well...ReplyDelete
VERY hot and humid here...our dew point is already 76~~ So AC for me...
Hugs from afar julierose
Hot and humid here too - there's a tornado warning out for the Toronto area and hopefully it won't amount to anything or slide this way. We could certainly use a good rainfall though.Delete
that looks like so much fun! I recently made some small banners (6"x8") for a project someone was doing of USA national parks....It was so enjoyable! I made one from a photo I took of a glacier at Glacier Bay Nat. Park and another of a mountain at Guadalupe Mts. Nat. Park.....I could easily get addicted to doing this........I'm sure part of the secret is finding the perfect fabric.....looks like you have it down to a science!ReplyDelete
It IS fun - or at least I'm thinking it is. I spend a lot of time contemplating how I'm going to do certain steps but it sure is addicting.Delete
You have done a lot already. Looks great.ReplyDelete
Right now we are getting a mega storm . Hopefully it will get rid of the humidity.
Hope your storm doesn't do any damage - that's the problem with extended periods of heat and humidity because it often leads to big damaging storms. We would be very happy with a couple of days of nice gentle rain but we rarely get what we want!Delete
Shoo that summery heat down to me....please, pretty please. =) Loving your landscape, lovely Mary Anne.ReplyDelete
We will gladly share a bit of it with you Kim, but not too much because I love summer. Alas no stitching happened here today - hope for better things tomorrow.Delete
It must be difficult to get in work mode when it's so hot. It hasn't been a real hot summer so far, here in NS. I'm lucky as my studio is nice & cool in summer and it's rare to put on the AC - nice for working. Your piece is coming along. You are a very quick worker on these landscapes.ReplyDelete
I find working in the heat is better because it takes my mind off the discomfort. At least stitching is okay, not so much a fan of working on larger projects that require sitting beneath them in the heat.Delete
I think your quote should have read "hot stuff". It's winter here and I recently got myself motivated to do some sewing, and BAM! what do I do but hurt my back. So my list of things I need to do, and things I want to do is getting longer and time is getting shorter. Hope the pain killers I got today help. I love reading your daily musings.ReplyDelete
Oh dear, I'm so sorry you've hurt your back! I've done that and know just how painful it is. Yes, I suppose 'hot stuff' fits here these days. Today is supposed to be the hottest yet. Take care of you!Delete
Glad you're finding a way to stay somewhat cool. I believe your art work can compete with any of those "eye candy" sites. You do awesome work. I enjoy watching them progress. I'm always amazed.ReplyDelete
Aw - thank you Joy! What a nice thing to say. Today it has been impossible to stay cool and I haven't managed to do a single thing but contemplate my navel. At least I've come up with a few ideas of how to progress on my landscape but nothing's going to happen until it cools off a bit. Hope you're staying cool!Delete
I agree it looks like you've done a lot! Looking forward to all the details you'll add. I love the embroidered dandelions! And the fabrics the designer used.ReplyDelete
The next step for the landscape is the interesting one - can I, or can't I, make a vehicle that looks realistic. The jury is still out on that one!Delete
What a great start! You have already achieved a great background! Hope it's cool enough in your sewing room to get some more completed! Christine xxReplyDelete
It certainly wasn't cool enough yesterday and I didn't manage to do anything but try to stay still. I don't mind the heat but when the humidity starts to come into play I'm not so happy.Delete
I see you have worked your magic again, this time with the realistic water. You are a talented Artist and I love following each new landscape. If the quote is correct, then I am as thin today, as a needle. LOLReplyDelete
Please send down some heat.
I lucked out and found the perfect fabric(s) to signify the water - at least at this stage of the design anyway. And I'm sending you some warmth - but not too much because I still want it to be summer here!Delete
Great beginning to this new landscape. Lots of fun links you have shared. I am HOT and very expanded! 107F at 6:30 pm. Whew!ReplyDelete
Hot and expanded - well I guess there are worse things! You must be so thankful you have a/c!Delete
I have the heat/expand issue too lol....ReplyDelete
I think most of us do , particularly after been stuck at home in close proximity to the fridge all these months!Delete
