HOT is the Word

Happy Fourth of July everyone!  I hope you are enjoying the holiday.

I have to admit – we’re not doing too much to celebrate the holiday here.  It is HOT outside and when I say HOT I mean HOT.  Right now, at 4:52PM my thermometer is reading 102.6 degrees.  Have I mentioned that I live in Wisconsin?!  Today is the first fourth of July over 100 degrees on record!  It’s also been seriously DRY in our area – our orchard got 3 tenths of an inch in June.  Dry = no fireworks :(

I didn’t get any work done today.  Pip was up super early and we were up late so I’ve been pretty zombie like today.  Oh well – maybe I’ll get a little quilting done tonight.

I did just discover the South Central Wisconsin Quilt Shop Association Shop Hop website.  The shop hop is happening from July 20th through the 28th.  I’m going to be up north for a few days of it and getting ready for the Summer Craftacular for the rest of the time but maybe the girls and I will take a day and go for a drive…could be fun.

patriotic test piece Before I go and enjoy the rest of my Bud Light Lime-A-Rita (super good btw – a bit too good probably…) I am going to selflessly promote one of my patriotic items in my etsy shop.  I’ll be showing this off a bit more in a future post as it’s one of my long arm quilted items but for now – here’s a sneak peak at my Quilted Patriotic Table Topper.

Happy 4th of July everyone!
