Mason’s Musings August 11th, 2023
Welcome back to another week of 100-degree weather all around the board. It’s a wonder I’ve made it through this summer without melting down into a puddle of sweat. At least we should be grateful it hasn’t dared to get up to the highest recorded temperature Texas ever had. And it wasn’t just a one-time occurrence it actually happened twice! The first time was on August 12, 1936 and then again on June 28th 1994. Can you guess how hot it got on those days? Not 110 not 115 but 120 degrees Fahrenheit! It turns out there are some things to be thankful for even in this grueling heat.
Calling all sewists and quilters of any age and skill level (including beginners)! Librarian Joy has gotten the quilt blocks sewn together and now we need you to help us quilt it. Next week we will be hosting a Quilting Bee from August 15th-17th (see below for daily schedule). We hope to see you there.
As mentioned this summer, the completed quilt will be showcased here in the library, and I just can’t wait to see it hung up in all of its glory! I know it’s going to look amazing just from some of the quilt square designs I saw. I hope you all have a great rest of your week and are able to find some enjoyment in this sweltering heat.
