 We've been under a Heat Advisory and a Heat warning for the last 4 days.  


The temps have been in the high 90's, with the "feels like" being in the 3 digit range.  This is our current map.

 We are currently under a.......


* WHAT...Heat index values of 95 to 100 are expected this
  afternoon and evening.

* WHERE...Portions of northern Indiana and northwest Ohio.

* WHEN...Until midnight EDT Thursday night.

I live in that red area.  Today we are under a Heat Advisory.  So we are staying inside with the air conditioner running full blast!

I'm not working on a full quilt, just working on blocks...that way I don't have too much fabric laying on my body.  I did do some more work on my SAHRR last night.  I can "see the light at the end of tunnel" on this quilt.  I have a couple more garden signs to embroider, and add the border, and this one will be another filmsy to add to my bulging box. 


This is quilt has so much color, I've decided it needs a neutral color as a border.These are what I've picked out for the border.

 Plus the Crazy Quilt is still in the hoop.  I put a few more stitches in last night.  This quilt is extra heavy, there are 5 layers of fabric plus all the embellishments on it.  The blocks are made on a muslin backing and each block measures at 12 1/2".   I'm really enjoying tying this quilt.  This is the first Crazy quilt I ever made. I'm working on an  8 1/2" one now.  

I'm still reading The Janus Stone by Elly Griffiths.  Really good series.  I'm on book  2 of 14.

My personal reading challenge is to read the whole series of Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kenny. 


 I've finished books 1 and 2.  Don't let the fact that these are "kids" books scare you off reading them.  They are really funny  and serious.  All about growing up and Middle School adventures.  You can read my post about these books at my book blog, Just Books.  

While I'm working on a quilt....I watch t.v.  I'm still watching Law and Order...Criminal Intent. I'm on season 7 right now.  There are 10 seasons.  I subscribe to several streaming channels...I'm watching this on Peacock.

Well, that's what's going on in my world right now.    I'm linking up with

I like Thursday!

Needle and Thread Thursday

Have a wonderful......


  1. I like that crazy quilt. Stay cool!

  2. Hi Sherrie! I didn't know you were in Indiana! I'm just northeast of you in Wisconsin with family in Indianapolis. Small world, huh?! I'm intriqued by the Janus Stone series. I'll have to see if our library has any - I have to read them in order, though. Book #1 or forget about it. HAHA! I always enjoyed watching Law & Order CI. Ten seasons! I've been hooked on Castle, which I couldn't stand at the time but enjoy very much now. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne


Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!!
