Too Hot? Think Pink

You know what? It's too hot to craft. There, I said it. Where I live, it's quite possibly the hottest day the city has ever seen. EVER. That is, since they started writing the temperature down in the mid 19th century. With the humidex, it's somewhere around 48°C (118°F). And that, dear friends, means my half-finished quilts get tossed in the closet, not to emerge till cooler heads prevail in September. So tonight, let's take a break from crafting and figure out how to cool off a little bit. Shall we? First, let's give ourselves a pedicure. We've earned it, plus it looks nice in cool sandals. Let's make it crazy hot pink – one of my favourite summer colours.

Next, why don't we pour ourselves a refreshing libation? Why not a glass of frosty fancy-pants French rosé we've been saving for a day like this? Mmmm, that's tasty.

Next, let's park it on the deck and pick up that lovely pink Multnomah shawl we've been working on. Wait, didn't I say it was too hot to craft? Well, this is just a lightweight shawl, so it's not heavy-duty crafting. Plus, we're working on the lacy edges, and those have so many holes they're barely there anyway.

Now, let's put it all together and take a look at our handiwork. Yes, that's much better, isn't it?

all-together-nowI hope you're beating the heat any way you can. Stay cool!
