Amarillo Breaks Old Record!

Well yesterday Amarillo borke a record with a new temperature of 106 degrees. I was inside all day working but I did notice how hot it was in the building. I was completely shocked when I came out at 7pm and heard at that time it was 97 degrees. I am really worried about the type of summer we are going to have when already temps are getting up that high. We use a water cooler and it doesnt cool well if the humidity is high, thankfully yesterday there was no humidity.

Good news on our premie. She still has the central line but no longer being fed thru it. They allow her mom to hold her once a day and feed her. She is now up to 4 lbs and things are looking good. She will probablly be in the NICU at least 3 - 4 more weeks but I am glad that she has made a turn on her progress. I have been buying up premie clothes but she may be too big for them when she comes out.

I have been busy sewing and finished another baby quilt for a co-worker. This one is the split 9-patch and I am really liking how these turn out. I used my favorite material which are the reproduction fabrics. The lady holding the quilt is the new grandma. I am now using all my scraps to make a chinese coin for my bed so it will be colorful this weekend.
Take care to everyone and hope I post again sooner.
