I disappeared for a while, and I don't even have a photo to show for it! I went to Atlanta (for work) and Las Vegas (for fun), and one week turned into two, turned into three... The thing is, we have been having the Best Summer Ever in Seattle. The kind where you're ready for happy hour every single day after work. Actually, at this point it's too hot. Remember in December when I told you we were unprepared for the major snowstorm we got? Well, at the opposite end of the spectrum, now we are unprepared for this heat wave. Few houses here have air conditioning since normally we are lucky if the temps are in the 80's (>27C) in the summertime. Now we've been pushing 100 (38C) which is unheard of around here. Spending time upstairs in our house, where I sew (and sleep!) is unbearable. I may need to move my sewing machine downstairs temporarily. The July Burda is still calling to me. Anyway, I'm still around. Happy sewing and happy summer, everyone!
