These are great Chris! Hubby, DD and I saw the Beach Boys years ago at an outdoor Summer concert where it was so hot, people were "dropping like flies" from the heat. We got so warm we had stopped sweating. Today is a perfect day to reminisce about this concert since we just received 30" of new snow and it is -10F. But, as I told you, I used to live where we'd get nasty, raw, snowy, icy winters and hot, humid "stick to everything" summers. The Summers were the worst!
Think cool thoughts, sit in a darkened room, drink in hand and pop in a "snow themed" movie like "Cool Runnings", "Frozen" if the granddaughters haven't worn out the DVD :-) or "8 Below"
Or maybe consider setting up lawn chairs in the frozen food section of your local market. Hey, there were times, before we had an air conditioner, when this idea was VERY appealing! LOL
Thanks Deb, this made me smile broadly!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can just imagine me sitting at my local Coles supermarket near the frozen section - I'd love it! he he he! Thanks for the story. Love Chris
Well I don't know why but didn't take all I just typed so will just say these are lovely Chris.
Thanks so much Patti. I now copy everything I type before I send it and that way I can just paste it into my message again if it doesn't go through. Sometimes it doesn't like spaces between paragraphs etc. Love Chris
Love your Coasters!!!Gorgeous!!!
Thanks so much Sonja, love Chris
I have to still laugh about this, so maybe you will to. When I first met my now husband, his birthday was coming up and so was mine. Not knowing each other as well yet, I bought him an album of artist I listened to. I bought him The Beach Boys! He in turn had bought me an album of the kind of music he listened to Loretta Lynn! -lol- we were both so off!!! (Some might say we still are!-lol lol)
I will go with hubby music lol Soooooo funny*****
I prefer your taste Toogie, I'm not with your husband on this one. Love Chris
What a lovely coaster !
Thanks so much Claire, I thought so too. Love Chris
I love the coasters! It's good to do a low count projects sometimes. I grew up with a brother who surfed so of course you heard a lot of Beach Boys playing in our house.
You're right Karen, they sew out in half an hour - I'm going to make a few of these. Lucky you having a surfie brother! Love Chris
They look fantastic, great work, hugs Maria
Thanks so much Maria, love Chris
They've turned out beautifully Chris!
I'm an ABBA and Beatles fan!
Thanks Mary. I love the Beatles too. It was 1964 when they came to Adelaide. I was 12 and too young to go down to the city and see them, but I remember Mum telling me all about the fanfare and TV report about them. The old bands are the best. ❤️👵🏻
They look great!
Oh yeah!! I'm another Beach Boys fan! Seems like there are still a lot of us!
Thanks so much Linda. I first heard of them when I was 12, and loved their unique sound. I'm also an ABBA fan and their music with Benny's playing of the Piano reminds me a bit of The Beach Boys. Love Chris
Lovely job, and thanks for sharing the steps you took to get such a perfect outcome. Flawless.
Thanks so much Toogie, I'm really happy with them. Love Chris
Oh, Chris. These are swoozy. (Wonderful, magnificent and stylish.) Good move. I notice they are in Christmas colors. Do you celebrate other holidays?
It could also be Valentine's Day Betsey.... or not. :)
Hi Betsey, thanks so much for commenting. And the answer to your question is no, I don't celebrate other holidays. Love Chris
These look great, Chris...well done. You should post a piccie of the back to show the stitch detail on the red fabric....I also LOVE the Beach Boys...Surf City USA is here on So California...my neck of the woods!
Thanks Kim, the back is exactly the same as the front only all red fabric, so the stitching doesn't show that much. KK did theirs in black so it really stands out. Love Chris
Chris they have turned out very nice, love their designs and have lots of them and they always turn out well and very good instructions.. Well hope when you get down to Adelaide it is better we had a very hot week, a couple of better days for now and then starting to get hot again next week. I do not like the heat at all especially the humidity. Val
Hi Val, I sent you a PRIVATE MESSAGE 3 days ago and haven't heard from you. Can you have a look at it please, it's up the top right hand of this page and there is a red number next to it. Thanks for commenting, love Chris

I was only saying to Trevor I'd love to live somewhere where the median temperature is about 24-25C.
