Too Dang Hot

We are having a September heat wave with winds blowing east out of the Columbia Gorge where it is always hotter. There are fires there which and the smoke is coming on the wind and making my eyes sting and I am losing my voice. It was i the high 90s and even got too hot to work in my usually cool basement studio. I had to knock off early and sit quietly and drink ice water.

We did go out tonight for dinner and went to a first Friday event in Sellwood. It just made my itchy eyes worse.

I am making good progress on the kelp/water piece. I just need to fill in a few spots and fuse it down.

I have a busy day tomorrow. I have to be at Trinity at 9:30 to meet with the folks that are doing Sunday School. I am going to work in the art room again. Then, I have to pick up Mr C and head for Woodburn for the debut of the High Fiber Diet Elements show at the Woodburn Art Center. It is from noon to 3 pm, if you are in the area and would like to come.

Have a good week-end.

    ohh I love where this is going!! I want to invite you to link up Off the Wall Friday – where weekly art quilters are linking their creative endeavors for the week. Any post from that week is welcome to be shared and its very low maintenance. We’re hoping that it will keep us motivated and connect link minded quilters together!!

    I like the 3×3 tonight. For a change, we were cooler today (89), but I know how hot Portland can be with those east winds. Kelp is really beautiful. I really like the color palette and the movement you have created. Have a beautiful weekend and keep cool. Rumor has it that a cold front is swinging down from Canada soon. (Be careful of your sinuses with the smoke filled air. I carry saline spray for my nose during the fire season. I use Ayr, it is less irritating for me.)
