Red Hot & Blue

Productivity has ground to a halt around the cul-de-sac. There seems to be an inverse relationship between the temperature and the output! I don't want to do anything except SIT. And maybe read.

I just cannot get or stay motivated in this awful HEAT. I mean, really! Take a look at that weather map. Dispiriting to say the least.

I've worked a bit more on the very colorful Noro Wisp, but then decided it would be much cooler to work with linen so I returned to this Hardanger project that I started a good while back. [Wow! I just checked and it was back when we had ice! Those were the Good Old Days!]

I took this photo yesterday and have since begun the cutting and weaving of the edge - my favorite part of any Hardanger piece.

Too bad I can't stitch on it in the dark. Much cooler that way.

Oh, I did get new duds, though and that cheered me up. Well that and a new bag of M&Ms.

Hope you are staying as cool as possible where you are.

You look so cute in your new tee shirt! Keep cool!

That shirt is so YOU! You look cute as a button.

And as hot as we are, look at the middle of the country--they are worse!

I overheard someone say that Kentucky had 114! I realize that's not GA, but would think you would be hotter and wetter. For some reason No CA is cooling off. You'd like it here.
Great shirt. And, thanks for stopping by. I have begun another Triinu!
Lucky you-went to B&N to pick up my copy of PieceWork, and it wasn't there. I wish my yarn shop carried it.

Love your new shirt! Aren't you SOOOO glad that M&M's melt in your mouth, not in your hand?
Even our pool is like body temperature, but then going back in the A/C is wonderful, if you don't move again.
Stay cool!

Almost missed the awesome M&M shirt. It's you!
