Sugar and Spice

I’ve been very busy sewing up pretty little girly Summer Jumpers and Blooming Bloomers! I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve been having. Of course, I don’t have any little ones to put these on, but no worries they’re up on my Etsy shop. I also have a really cute bonnet and sun hat that I’ll post some time this week, can’t wait to show them off! I don’t know where you live, but here in Southern Ontario, in Toronto, it is STINKIN’ HOT. I don’t want to complain because in approx. 3-4 months we’ll be wishing for some stinkin’ hot weather.

Weight loss the Quilting Way

I’m on a ‘staycation‘ this week! Yea, I really needed this time away from work. On Tuesday the weather was not what I was expecting at all, it was cloudy and I was sure we were going to get a storm. The humidity is pushing the temperature upwards of the high 30s to almost 40 degrees celsius. Today a different story, not only humid but flippin’ hot!

I thought I would spend the morning catching up on my quilt projects and later reward myself with a swim in the pool. Well, let me tell you, if you want to loss weight take up summer quilting. I was dripping sweat while I was putting my Swoon sandwich together. This may be too much information, but I took my pants off and was on a step stool in my underwear and t-shirt, I know too much. I don’t know about you, but once I start sweating I can’t stop. Our air conditioning has not stopped since last Wednesday. Anyway, here is a picture of the Swoon on the wall, don’t worry no pics of me in my underwear.
