Heatstroke

Like the rest of Melbourne, we have been just surviving the heat...last night was particularly hot, had a cockroach run over me, must have been desperate for a drink and my sweaty body fit the bill- erk! I can't get enough of my cute cat- she just flops anywhere, usually UNDER the fan, which doesn't really make sense to me.


The dog has been liking his doggy icy poles (frozen bones) and they both like ice cubes in there water, so I'm like an ice factory at the moment.
I found Little Miss like this before I went to bed last night- wet tea towel on her back, curled up because she was cold! Fan was going, too. At least she slept (grr).....

and to beat the heat, or at least distract myself, I've been sewing. I finished this top, that was also over here.
Hmm, honeycomb seersucker, think it was from an oppy, good choice I thought. Snapped before the hair brushing and during breakfast!

I've also made another one of these, for a fellow blogger. I'm much happier with this version- I used batting, better interfacing, red chenille lining....mmm, it's pretty nice. Just send me your address, Gina, and it's yours! Just because.....


Today is all about freezing our buts off in air con- ten pin bowling then a shopping centre, I think. Ice cream for sure!

Shocking night wasn't it! The four of us slept in the one bedroom with an aircon with the door shut, thats the only relief we could get.

Oh still able to function & produce great things, well done!! I watch where the dog lies & admire his clever ability to lay in the cool. We've been swimming all day, exhausted, hot, bothered & drinking our body weight in water. Ahhhh . . . love Posie

That top looks brilliant! I'm impressed you could sew in the heat, I cut out a top but I gave the machine a miss.
