Purple is the next colour for the month of June. This week we all had our first vaccines and I was the last one to get mine. Needless to say my arm is sore, expected that. What I did not expect was to want to sleep so much. Not a bad thing as a side effect.

Woke up to a rainy day, it looks like it will be much the same for the entire weekend. Perfect for springcleaning as it is cooler and makes it more comfortable to do. Did not much sewing yesterday, walked into the kitchen and decided to clean the glass top of the stove, the oven. Then it just carried on from there, going down the cleaning rabbit hole. The fridge is on the list, sorting out the cupboards after that. Once a year this happens and this year it is not as early as others.
Pulled the next charm row from the box. The other one only need four more pieces. If a moment presents itself will do a the rest of this row.

It was a very hot day yesterday, too hot to be outside. The humidity and the wind was wild all day long. Finished sewing all twelve red flowers on the center of the red and white quilt.
The next charm row for this week is growing.

It was a lazy day yesterday, we did not do much. Relaxed at home, spend some time in the garden and potted around the house.
The red and white quilt had to wait as the four red flowers disappeared when I wanted to see them on to the center. Found them a little while later, they are now pinned in place. Will be doing them today, as we are expecting a very hot and humid day today, so it will be spent indoors until this evening when it hopefully cools down to be spending time outside.

Hubby asked me to look for something that moved with us almost seven years ago? Looked and search everywhere, it was nowhere to be found. Did not get much done, instead went into the kitchen and cooked dinner. The only other thing that got done was watering the garden.
Will continue to work on the red and white quilt today, rain expected this afternoon.

Expecting the week to go as all of them so far, was not what happened yesterday. It started off smoothly, I were happily watering the garden. The spring maintenance was scheduled for this morning between nine and twelve. Chap game did what he needed to, I asked if he has all his testing tools, he said yes. He left and Moose the St Bernard puppy who is now a big boy wanted a doggie head massage. Ten minutes later I walked into the house and it was like a toaster oven. Checked the thermostat and everything was off, the furnace was on an warming the house. Called the company and reported this anomaly. Another technician popped by and open the furnace, the over ride clips was still attached to the wires of the furnace. He removed it, we had every window and door open to cool the house down as soon as possible. Later in the day we had to run the cooling, a happy ending thankfully.
The charm row got a few pieces, the red flower pinned in place.
