Hottest day of the year..

Its the hottest day of the year so far, 36 degrees Celsius in the shade!!  Hopefully we will have some thunder storms later..
So keeping calm next to the fan with a nice cold drink and working on some Dear Jane blocks.
Wonder how Jane coped with such hot weather in her time? No air conditioning, and with wearing all those skirts and hoops in those days, it must have been very hot!

Done this one today, Block C-10 "Patriot's Lantern"

These blocks were also done the past couple of weeks
Block C-9 "Jane's Tears"

and C-2 "Streak of Lightning"

With a little help of my little furry friend (poor thing, she must also be very hot!) I have prepared some pieces for block C-11 and they are ready to be appliqued.

This time next week my friend Jo and I will be visiting the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, UK..
sooooooooooo excited!!
With over 700 quilts on display there is so much to see and lots to shop too;))
One day is simply not enough to see it all, so we will be visiting the show 3 days, Friday thru Sunday. On the Friday we will also attend a lecture with no other than Kaffe Fasset himself and on Saturday we will be attending a workshop. I will bring my i-pod and try to do a daily update of the show on my blog with some pictures too.
Hopefully the temperature is going to be a wee bit cooler when we go!

See you next time!

  1. Goeie morgen Esther. Dat zijn weer mooie blokjes voor dear Jane. Je gaat lekker.
    En ooooooooooooh nou ga je naar Birmingham en dan nog wel drie dagen en Kaffe Fasset zien en meemaken en een workshop en shoppen, wat een heerlijke vakantie. Je kan weer een heleboel ideeen opdoen.
    Ik ben benieuwd naar je foto's, ik blijf kijken.
    Groetjes ook voor Joke.
    Lieve Esther kan je je woordverificatie uitzetten. Het heeft geen enkele zin en het is zo moeilijk lezen die gekke letters. Liefs!
