I hope you’re not surprised to know I fell behind again this month.
So, I spent the last couple days catching up to bring you this post….I was all ready to finish up my last couple hexies of April and attach them to the quilt……..
and then, guess what happened? One of my youth, full of pent up energy, tried to jump a metal stake in our yard and fell on it. (puncturing his forearm) After a quick call to make sure we had our vaccines up-to-date….and a consult with our wonderful EMT neighbor, we made the trip to Urgent Care. It wasn’t horrible, and, we avoided stitches due to the fact that the hole was too big….so the boy was happy. Now, we heal at home.
School from home, sewing, blogging, thoughts of pandemic….all things on stand-still when your child is in need to medical care…..talk about perspective….
Never a dull moment!
SO, what was this post about? Oh yeah, the temperature quilt!
For those of you that made it through the trauma update, thank you.
Remember my Temperature Legend?
I am making my quilt to record the temperatures for Oshkosh, Wisconsin for the year 2020. I sew 2 hexies per day: One for the high temp and one for the low temp.
APRIL 2020 Brought a NEW HIGH TEMP color to our array!
ORANGE!!!!! MY FAVORITE COLOR!!!
That means we reached up into the 60’s! And toward the end of the month…it looks quite warm! Something to look forward too, no?
And all together now!
Oshkosh, Wisconsin Temperature Quilt from January 2020-April 2020:
It’s just so GOSH DARN pretty! I’m still not quite caught up with the white border hexies….maybe one day when I have that extra time 😉
At last, my friends, I give you….the “watch me grow” progression!
I look forward to warmer highs and lows this month! If we’re “Safe at Home”, we might as well be able to spend time enjoying the weather!
