Swanky Start....Brrrrr

Hello!!! Yesterday i dropped off the quilts for my nephews at the quilters and they should be done in about 3 weeks ... i can't wait to see them, they will look awesome!

So last night i needed something to do so i started a new project. This jumble of material...

will eventually become this quilt...
I'm using the Swanky jellyroll and a bit of yardage and can't wait to finish this girly quilt.

So, we have a ranch house and when we put the air conditioner in our bedroom window, we can close off all the other rooms, bathroom and laundry room and the AC in our bedroom will cool down the entire house. Well my husband tends to "crank" the AC when he gets up, especially the last few days because it has been so hot and humid in Ohio ... so last night when he was at work i went to go to bed and about FROZE when i walked in our bedroom! i looked at the thermometer that sits on the dresser and here is what it said ...

It was 59 degrees in our bedroom and freezing! I was definitely regretting that i took the electric mattress pad cover off ... i so would have cranked it on high for some heat! I shouldn't complain, i should just be happy that we have AC!

Well, this is my 99th post, so my next post will be a GIVEAWAY and i will have several different ways for you to enter your name....stay tuned :O)

LOVE the colors for the new quilt & looking forward to your end result.
I'd like to have it 59 degrees in my home but my husband would never go for that (we ladies "of a certain age" need it cool!).

Don't you just love jelly rolls?

Love the quilt your making a start on, that book is filled with terrific designs. Hmm 59 is rather cold, my dh sets our a/c in the bedroom to 69 and I think it's like a meat storage freezer when I walk in....

Can't wait to see the newest quilt! Love that fabric!

And I would just about die if hubby cranked the AC (which we don't have) that high! I don't like it below 65!

Can't wait for the giveaway!
