Did I say, " Red Hot"---yes I did! 

That's what the weather is like 
 here in Des Moines, Iowa!

Multiple 100 degree  days have (again) kept me indoors! I've had a project in mind and decided to use "hot" colors of reds. I made this snappy RED whirlwind paper piecing table topper quilt pattern from:  Quilting. about. com.

Lot's of fun to make and very easy- I have not done much using the paper piecing method.

I say this BECAUSE-----it is so -----

the corn popped on the cob! Yesterday we drove to the country and purchased 3 dozen "farm fresh" eggs. T'was 99  in the city and (cool) 94 in the country. Fortunate for air conditioning-or else, might of had 36 baby chichs to deal with!

I made these snap bags, using pattern from "Stitchinsis. com"

I had a few pieces from cut up vintage quilt and used them for another!
So, being silly.....I hope we "snap" out of this "hot" spell and it "cools" down for everyone!

Have a great weekend!

Hugs, Carolyn
