Crest is heating up and Morris is trying to keep cool!

                                                                 Dee's Pigs
                                            This is a pattern by Blackberry Primitives
                                             designed by Kay Cloud

                                                            I love this pattern!

                                             Remember when Dee was working on this Rug

                                                          This is a original Kay Cloud Pig

Morris is so hot and just waits for the night.
It is so hot in Crest today I have been so sweaty all day! It's a job trying to keep cool. I start out the day using the fan and then I have to switch to air conditioning.It's going to be in the 100's this weekend in Crest Oh Boy! I have a routine I wake up in the morning about 730 have a cup of coffee race around the yard watering before the temperature gets too hot. By nine in the morning it's too hot to enjoy the outdoors until evening.Then I am inside working on my projects.This morning I watched an old black and white movie called Rebecca it was a good old movie. Sorry for complaining about the heat but what I would do for snow.      
TA DA!!! I am done knitting Hubby's socks!!!

 This afternoon I have been sewing my buttons on my Sew Primitive Quilt and quilting the blue house in my quilt. I am entering the San Diego Quilt Show this weekend. The show is in September but you need to send in your entry form this weekend. The things I still have to do is take a picture of my Primitive quilt,take measurements then describe my Primitive quilt. Yikes! I could enter a second quilt but since I still have to do the binding on the Sew Primitive quilt, mean while there is also another primitive quilt that Morris is laying on plus work on my Hobo quilt squares that's enough for me. I don't want to give myself any more pressure.Oh also
I really need to get back to rug hooking my cousins primitive rug.I miss hooking.

Primitive Rughooking to Primitive Quilts

                                           Pam is doing a great job on her hooked rug

What can I say Life is a blur of busy weeks.It seems like every week zooms by! The last few weeks I have been busy finishing sock knitting. I  know I have to finish Hubby's sock soon. I think I am a little bit of a nut  who makes knitted wool socks for a July birthday? 
I went to Little Jacks second year Birthday party.It was such a nice time.Little Jack had two birthdays one at Disneyland and one with family.

 I finally took my Primitive Quilt to have it quilted and was nudged to enter it in the San Diego Quilt Show.I am nervous but this year Pam who is the President of the San Diego Quilt show wants a good primitive quilt turn out. Since Cheri Payne is teaching at the quilt show what better then to display some of her quilts we have made.

             Don't look too closely it's still a work in progress,
      I still have lots to do first I have to add a huge button on the house.
      Add cat eyes. Clean up the threads and bind in old red fabric.

          I have until September to bind my Sew Primitive quilt.On my quilt there are buttons I still need to put  on so Janet let me borrow her button jar.

My tooth has been bothering so trips to the dentist.It seems I lost two weeks just in teeth pain it kept coming and going. I swear there is nothing worse then a tooth ache. I am slowly getting my hooked rug done. So here are some quick pictures of what the ladies has been up to
