What do you do when it's too hot to go out

Summer has finally hit Southern California and I don't like it.  Anything over 75 degrees is just too hot for me.   
I finished all the stitchery for the current issue of the Vignette In Stitches Mystery this week.  I put the two blocks together this morning.  I didn't finish the date on the second block because I am not sure if this is getting finished this year or next.  I am leaning towards next year, especially since I haven't even tackled that center medallion.  



                                                    Here are all the parts I have finished.
                          I also finished this months Mystery Block from the Fat Quarter Shop.
                                              Here are the first three blocks put together.
What's with all these bright fabrics?  I am having reproduction withdrawals. 

Sewing machine is now put away and time to get ready for the work week.  :(   
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

I have everything to make the Vignette in Stitches project but have never started it. I seriously doubt that I ever will. Yours is beautiful, Yvette.

The FQS Mystery BOM blocks are lovely.

I am retired now. But I well remember having to put projects aside come Sunday night and head back to work. Gives you something to look forward to. I stitched almost every week night evening.

I'm pondering the same question. Way too hot for Southern California. 95 at my house and I live near the coast.

I vote for more time visiting quilt shops with really good air conditioning!

Love all your beautiful projects. Such great design & color.

The heat got to my brain and I missed checking to see if you posted! I hate the heat also.... I can't wait for Blast Furnace Season to be over!

Your Vignette in Stitches is BEAUTIFUL!

I am enjoying working with some brights these days - but I still am drawn to the reproductions!

Stay cool and keep stitching!!
