Sigh... The End of a Weekend

As each weekend has passed recently I've been regretting the end of summer. I have one more weekend... next weekend, the Labour Day long weekend will be my last one. For me that signals the end of summer as the kiddies are coming back to school.


Friday morning I packed up some clothes, and lots of stitching and hit Hwy 401 once again (the roads I was driving last weekend), this time in the opposite direction to visit with Chrisanne. It was hot and very humid the last few days! It got to the point that even stitching was so uncomfortable... I'm spoilt I really started to miss the AC at home! What was my body's response to heat and humidity? I kept falling asleep! You'd have to ask Chrisanne just how many times but I know I took several naps in my stitching chair at her house! How embarrassing!



While I could I worked on Von's Neighbourhood RR, but having all that fabric draped over your hands and lap on a very humid day got quite uncomfortable at times. However, at home today I worked on it pretty much all day and made great progress.



In between bouts of high humidity I worked on smaller projects....

For the long weekend I'll be hitting the 401 yet again... I sware my car will soon be able to drive myself there. I'll be visiting with Kathy and I'm really looking forward to it!

I love the look of your block for Von's RR. Sorry to hear the heat is unbearable. We're enjoying our second day of fine weather this summer. Yes, you read that correctly. THIS SUMMER. I feel sorry for you though. Heat and humidity are always bad for stitching mojo.

We've not had much of a summer here in England but I'm not really upset about it as I can't stand hot weather. I get soo ratty.

That's a really pretty little cottage. Looks like lots of confetti stitching there. Not so nice to do but the end effect is gorgeous.

Great WIPs! I always hated A/C until I moved to where I live now. I'm not sure I could survived without it now...

The RR house looks lovely.
I agree with you no A/C makes it hard to stitch. I'm spoiled too.
Your other starts are looking good too!!!
