|hail on pile of quilts|
Over the past 2 weeks the temperature rose more than 30 degrees (Celsius) . It's quite an extreme and rapid weather change for which I was unprepared! I don't have the window air conditioner installed in the sewing room yet and it's too hot to sit at the machine and sew!
Hand stitching to the rescue!
Sometimes is has even been too hot to hold the needle without sweating, but evenings have been comfortable.
I'd like to give a shout out to Kathleen in Connecticut, who is a hand stitcher and wanted to know the size of this embroidery pattern. I measured it for you and the length of the rolling pin is 6.25". You can order the pattern though Colonial Patterns. It would be a great tribute to your pie making Mom and sister!
Your smile for the day... if it wasn't so hot outside, I'd consider returning to this old style of women's clothing to help me maintain a safe, socially distant life!
