Good Evening Quilters "Quilters Evening Club"

Hi,

Waving from Indiana, USA we are finally getting some rain tonight as it has been so dry here and our yard is now brown (we haven't had rain for over a month)

It was 91 degrees today but our temperature is dropping as we are getting rain this evening

It is suppose to rain Wednesday night, Thursday and Friday,

yipppeeee we are so happy to get 1/2 to 1 inch of rain

What are you sewing or quilting tonight? I thought I would create this topic so we can all get more motivated to sew sew sew and this way we can post our accomplishments or things we need to sew or quilt

I'm in Pennsylvania waiting for the rain. I hope it comes soon.

I'm just clearing brush and limbs in the back yard for the garbage pickup on Thursday.

It is around 89 here right now and everything is so dry it could be a dessert here.

I keep looking at my fabric but can't get into it right now.

Too much work to be done by myself my husband can't do anything because of his health and being without eyesight he tries I give him credit for that.

I'm glad you started this so I can let some stress out.
Sometimes I just need someone to talk too it is so hard.

Okay, now send some of that rain 1 hour north! We haven't gotten a drop and it was 91 her,too. Can't wait for Saturday & 70 degrees. Tonight I am taking photo of quilt just finished. Sorry, can't publish as it is a test/sample for our winter retreat in January. Can only show the "committee" at this point. Then, I need to clean up the sewing room as I have been jumping from one project to another without cleaning up in between. If I can get clean up done tonight, I can sew, sew, sew this weekend (when Gkids aren't here). Enjoy the rain! :lol:

Hiya. In a very different time zone here in the UK. A lovely summery day, warm but not too hot - everything seems to be getting ready for Autumn. Nice to be dry after a very wet August!

I just went back to work this week - college, so adjusting to the routine. Its too hot to work in my sewing room tonight. 95 here today. But I'm hoping to finish my FWS squares from last week and print directions for this week! UGH - I'm a member of the slackers group.

I'm also working on a quilt for my neighbor's 3rd birthday. Then I have to make one for her brother, they are twins. Cole's will be easier.

Hoping for some cooler weather by the weekend. Heat and quilting just never seemed to work for me! Hate sweating all over the fabric. :shock:

Its been an exciting day here,some idiot took some people hostage in the Discovery TV building 5 min from my office in Silver Spring, MD. They evacuated everyone within 4 block radius, shut down Metro and buses, tied up traffic for hours.
Becoming normal in the DC Metro area. Then "Earl" first he wasn't coming, then he is but not going to affect us, now 75 mph winds. Whats next.
