They aren't kidding around when they say it gets hot and uncomfortable in Arizona in the summer. With temps getting up to 120 we got the heck out of here for lots of it. My kids go back to school tomorrow, believe it or not, so that means we will be sticking around for the rest of it. It's "monsoon season" now, so there's a touch of relief.
We were lucky though. We spent a week in Chicago and a week in Colorado. My older daughter was super lucky. She spent 2 additional weeks in Colorado and one at band camp. I seem to have lost my Chicago photos due to a little phone mishap, but here is the rest of my summer in photos...
I did lots and lots of running. At 5:30 am. That's how we roll here. Get up early and run or suck it up and get on a treadmill because there's no running out in 105 degrees for this gal. This was just yesterday morning.
I managed to squeeze in lots of watercolor painting...
My girls and I hiked with my brother and his family in gorgeous Colorado...
And I forced my girls to get out of the car on the way back through Utah to see the likes of this amazingness. They are teenagers, so there was whining involved. I'll give them the fact that it was 110 degrees out.
Much of the rest of my time was spent designing my next fabric line which is due out in December. My goal for when the girls are back in school is to become a more consistent blogger. Let's see if I can do that, shall we?
Don't forget, the Holiday in London Sew Along starts Monday!!! I'm a touch late on the PDF, but I hope to have it up by tomorrow! Also tomorrow, a little Bijoux t-shirt project for you! Be on the lookout!
Happy crafting and sewing!
