Not a great time to be without an air conditioner on the second floor. So far, the air conditioner on the first floor has continued to operate, so we aren't miserable. Though the Drama Teen isn't happy about not being able to escape Mom and Dad. She's had to camp out on the sleeper sofa in the living room as her bedroom is on the second floor and is uninhabitable at the moment. The essentials from the sewing room have been relocated to the kitchen table.
The iron is next door in what we call our library. I couldn't find a place to put it in the kitchen that didn't really interfere with traffic flow. It's not a bad set up, but like Drama Teen, I'm missing being able to shut the door and turn up my music. I also miss my design walls. I could move the smaller one into the library, but I'm hoping this is a very short term set up so I am trying not to relocate the entire sewing room.
What's up on the design walls? I added 3 blue blocks to The Coffee Cup Quilt. Now "coffee" is spelled correctly. I'm looking forward to finding out what the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color is for August. (This picture was taken Saturday, before the sewing room became an oven.)

Progress was also made on The Sofa Quilt.

The rows for the first block are all done and I've starting assembling the blocks. So hopefully at least a few completed blocks will be up on the design wall next week.
That's it for me this week. Check out all the other design walls posted over at Patchwork Times.
