Too Darn Hot


Summer has arrived,
let us share the treat -
we'll take the beach and ice cream
and you can have the heat.


Featured: these beach bums
were made from my smallest scraps.

Great use of those scraps Amalia! We are having a scorching heat wave as well, though it has subsided in the last couple of days. I think we are going to literally be baked if summer is like this through the end.

Lorrie said...

Great scrap sewing, Amalia! I'm so glad that our intense heat has subsided. Now it's just very pleasant. Stay cool!

Brenda @ Its A Beautiful Life said...

What cute beach bums! You make the cutest things with your needle and thread. We had some intense heat this past week or so. Most happy for the more normal temperatures we're enjoying once again. Hope you get a reprieve soon.

Oh, it's so hot here too, Amalia, and no ac yet. Will get central air and heat next year. Didn't know it would be this hot in the mountains, but we have fans, so that helps. Try to stay cool, Amalia. These little cloth animals are darling.

Good July days to you. : )

So many people are suffering with too much heat this year it seems. Not here in the UK just yet, we've had some pleasant days and A LOT of rain recently. But when it does warm up I'll be happy to take the beach and ice cream too!!

Clever beach bums you made.

A Joyful Cottage said...

Ice cream on the beach? Yes, please! It's been hot here, too, Amalia. I finally broke down yesterday and bought a portable air conditioner. I must say, it made getting a good night's rest easier to accomplish. Love the beach bums. They really look ready for fun! Fun poetry, too. Hugs, Nancy

Someone above commented on what cute fabric scraps you have. You truly do, Amalia. You inspire me to look at my scraps in completely new ways. Such cute little characters are these.

The best part of your articles that they have perfect Content Quality and Quantity. Do write something on Laboratory Centrifuge Exporters In Ambala India also. Honestly, you posses great Writing Skills.

Tine de Jong said...

How wonderful that you are so creative. and in doing so, your words are so wonderful too. Saw your comment at Betty Crow and also your website at Tom and thought I would come and visit. Nice website you have because I also looked around. I used to like it also very much, but the fingers are so crooked that I now experience a lot of pain and can no longer do it. I type with 2 index fingers and I still manage to do that. Greetings from the Netherlands-South Holland area Alblasserwaard. Best regards, Tine
