We had a couple young girls from church over yesterday and they pulled some of the weeds/grass growing between patio stones and also helped carry some of the brush Tom was cutting out to the burn pile. Even 11 and 12 years olds find this heat oppresive it seems as they only lasted about 1/2 hour at a time before running into the house for respite. I sat down and pulled a few weeds with them but I didn't stay long either. Today I've paying the price with lots of jigger bites still itching.
I think I'll stay in the house today and get started quilting a few of the tops that have accumulated recently.
I did finish piecing the Dear Jane top..at least as much of it as I want together before I start lap quilting it. I think that will be a job for later this fall. For now this is what it looks like. The outer two rows are lying unattached.
One more Dutch Treat block done Sunday night
And three done last night. When they are simple ones like this it's pretty easy to get two or three done in an evening.
197 blocks done. That means only one more and I will have half the blocks finished on my second Dutch Treat!
