How is everyone handling this heat?  It was 100 degrees today here in Michigan.  I like warm weather but this is unbearable!

Maybe “thinking” about Reindeer Games will help us cool off.  Making a redwork like above is about the only kind of quilting/sewing I can do in this weather.  Today I’m posting the pattern that Barb has named Cupid. 
 I also did a block in applique.  You can get the pattern by going here.   Then go and check out Barb’s blog and see which reindeer she has posted this week. She's in the middle of a move but said she would post "something" on Friday.  

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Hi Caroll!
I've been thinking winter things as this heat is unbearable for us Michiganians.

It's gonna be another hot one today. Stay cool!

Oh, I love this one! Your stitching is so very neat, but I can't tell if you did stem/outline or backstitching, even on the up-closest photo. I've been doing tons of backstitching and I think I'm ready to do this project with the stem and outline to relax back into what's normal for me!

What a cute reindeer. Thanks for the link. Your redwork version is just adorable.

He's cute! I love his "shit-eating grin." (That's what we call that kind of smirk. Forgive the French.) :-)
