Tiny Needle Tuesday: Too Hot to Handle


I don't have much to show for this week. I've pretty much lost the will to live. The weather is making me stabby. It's still so hot and humid out that I feel like a prisoner in my house. I swear there isn't enough oxygen anymore. I even got a mold alert on my phone. A mold alert. Let that sink in. 
I did get one block done on the second row of the sampler. 

I work on this one at night propped up in bed watching The Gilmore Girls for the umpteenth time. You can see it's received a bit more love. There are two deer now and a few more branches.

I've gotten the center of the nine patch quilted. It's starting to look nice and crinkly. I am very anxious about putting this one in the wash as it is made up of a whole lot of Dad's wonky square paper pieces joined by my very bad whip stitching. 

I had the same reservations about my rings quilt and it came out just fine. In fact, I love it now and use it all the time. It was a Frankenstein while it was being worked on but it bloomed into something beautiful and very comfy. Pup agrees. 


  1. I can't even imagine what agency even issues a mold alert, much less how they know!

  2. I do love your quilting and your stitching. All projects are so pretty. It is still pretty stinking hot here (and humid). There are times when I'm working on my stitching and everything is sticky...and sticking to me. I hate when the needle won't glide.

  3. Pup looks very content on her quilt!

    Those deer are cute!

    We had a brief break from the humidity, but it came back this weekend. Ugh.

  4. Humidity can be bad enough but feeling closed in only gets worse with humidity. I know that this can really affect our spirit. Your work is still, as usual, lovely - the rings quilt is really so pretty and I'm glad it washed well!

  5. The photo of Pup and the rings quilt is precious.

  6. It is looking beautiful--soon it will be as loved as the wedding ring quilt! Cute and happy Pup!

  7. Oh no. I wish your weather would break and be more enjoyable ! It sounds veyr uncomfortable. I have allowed the a/c on the last two days....and I dont like it.
    I love your deer work!

  8. I think living in Florida we have a constant mold alert, mold, mildew, humidity, it is all gross. Stay safe.
