Baby, It’s Hot Outside

Alexa says it’s 99 outside, and I can believe it. The forecast for the next seven days is more of the same. This is my patio:

The lizards aren’t even running away. Two good thing about the heat: the grass isn’t growing, and the watermelon has been sooooo good.

I went to Yorktown yesterday and got the Aggie fabric I was wanting. I sent it home with Janice so she can piece the quilt. The shop had a basket of fat quarters on the counter—$1.65 each—I picked out ten that I think will work together.
I have a pattern picked out for it. 
I’m hoping I’ll have some free time to work on it soon. 

I have a couple of table runner patterns I want to make too. 

I had hopes of doing the flag one before the 4th of July…..maybe Labor Day is more realistic. For the second one, I have a Lori Holt jelly roll I want to use, and I bought some solid green today for the background. Although, now that I’m looking at the pattern again, I really like the yellow they used. We’ll see. Janice made me one from that pattern that I still need to quilt, so there’s no short of things to work on. I don’t make many table runners anymore, but I do like them. I think it’s time for a couple of new ones.
