Was that Spring and Summer? Brrrrrrrrr

For the past couple of weeks we have had sunny skies, warm, if not hot temps at times, even prompted some friends to turn on their A/C.  Today, it is windy and down right cold.  Forecast tonight is close to the zero *C, the sky is clearing and we are at risk for a frost ,so will have to cover the annuals that I purchased last week.

Closed all of the windows and cooked dinner in the oven tonight, which took the chill of the kitchen and dining area.   May contemplate turning on the furnace later.

Computer programming is my son's job, and because I  know nothing about computers, he is doing all the necessaries on my new lap top.  In return, I was asked to do some sewing.  So that is what I did this afternoon, not quilting, but covering three pillows for my son and daughter in laws bed.
She gave me some left over fabric from the new drapes she has just had made.  The fabric was terrible to work with, never had anything like it before. It was shiny and slippery and unravelled like crazy.  I had threads of it all over me and the floors.   I can't imagine making drapes from this fabric, but if you are a professional you know all the tricks of the trade and have all the gadgets required to work on almost anything.

Busy weekend coming up, so not much quilty sewing will be done until early next week.
