We're Having A Heat Wave.........

It is so hot here that it is unbearable when you go outside. Specially after leaving the lovely air conditioning. It's so hard to breath as the air is sooooo opening an oven.

On my back porch the temperature is now 35C and rising...eeek. Yesterday my hubby took the temperature of the wood on the back deck......42C.......bare foot burning hot!

And, the humidity.....right now it's supposed to be at 78%'s only June and we have had every possible extreme of weather.

Last night we ate dinner late at about 7:30 and it was still in the 30's......we had cold salad as there was no way I was cooking anything:(

Tomorrow is is going down to 25C with rain hopefully....bliss:)

I received some lovely mail this get my crafty muse in gear again.

I belong to a fabric club at Sew Sisters...a local quilt shop...and every month I receive 10 fat quarters of a coordinated selection of fabrics.

The selection this month was quite different than anything I would normally purchase...which is a good's always a surprise every month:)

I also get 4 fat quarters of Kona plain.......this month the theme was......

Cream, Sour Apple, Tomato and White
AND.......from my lovely blogger buddy Judy...of Judy's Fabrications fame...a Dotee Doll:)

Isn't she gorgeous. The small details are sweet and the face is amazing.

Judy sent this to me as we decided to do a swap after I blogged about Dotee Dolls over here........ and also because I haven't been feeling so great lately. Judy is one of a kind.....she really is.....and she is so talented.

Also, I finally finished a doll I started in March that I made for a Show and Tell Challenge over at Cloth Doll Artistry called "Flower Power". We were to make a doll representing a favourite flower.........after much trial and tribulation.......and a wee bit of swearing.......I made a dandelion doll......Astera Delion.

She will be one of my Monthly Makes for June:) 

So that's it for now. I hope all of you are well. 

Take care:)


  1. Your doll is lovely, I especially like her bodice!

  2. Oh, she is COOL!! I love her although I'm not big on dandelions.

    How come you are not feeling well?? I hope you are better soon. :(

  3. I don't envy you the heat. 35 deg C is pretty hot and the humidity doesn't help.

    The dandelion doll is very sweet. I always thought if dandelions was difficult to grow, we'd look at them differently. Those cheerful yellow blossoms are very pretty.I love her bright hair.

    And the Dotee Doll is darling. you're right about her lovely face.

  4. A heat-wave - What exactly is that? Here it is windy, wet and miserable. Warm and balmy summer weather is passing us by.


  5. there's a Dotee ....again...... when my renovation organizng slows down and the contractor takes over to do the actual renovating.....I want to try one......I should hve the time...but, will I have motivation or a place to hide somewhere out of the dust and hammering..... I'll have to find one for sure.... my basement, where we will live ...will not be nearly far enough away for most of the day I'm sure......

    hope you are feeling somewhat better now....

  6. Wow she is stunning! Would you mind if I borrow a photo from here to do a round up post on the monthly makes later this week, I'm hosting for June. I will of course link back to you here x


If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:)
