When it's too hot for anything else, you sew!

Except for being in the water, is there anything else to do on these awful hot and humid days? I tried to run yesterday and it wasn't pretty. It was mostly cloudy with a breeze but the humidity, oh my. I hate summer running. That pace, well, it was a lot of walking.

After that, I took the paddle board out. Ahhh, definitely better. I went to the new Lakeshore Park, which is the park TVA created after the big Ash Spill in 2010 (?). It is super nice with lots of walking trails, a boat launch, two canoe launches, and two pedestrian bridges. Very secluded too, which I prefer when I am on the board,

All that physical activity yesterday left me feeling like a slug today, So mostly, I've stayed in because if you can't go out in this heat, you should stay in and sew, right? Actually, I've done more thinking about sewing, I mailed my new king size quilt off last week because, YAY!, McCall's has accepted it for publication. The bad news - it was the only one I had big enough for our massive bed. What's a girl to do? Make another, of course.

I'm thinking of doing a double Irish chain using a pale yellow for the centers and a multitude of scraps for the blocks. The hubby's favorite color is yellow, so he voted for it. Doing a couple of test blocks to see if that is really what I want to do before I buy the yellow yardage.

What are you working on since it is too hot to get outside? (funny, I was just thinking there is always an excuse to sew - too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry, etc.)
