June Rudolph Days Challenge Winner

We had 42 fabulous entries this month. Not bad for summer!

I know it is hard to work on Christmas cards when it is hot and dry out. It has been a sweltering 43 degrees here for the last few days. We do not have central air conditioning as it normally does not get that hot here. July and August can bring mid 30"s but never 42-43 degrees in June!!!

My daughter gave us a portable air conditioner unit and we kept to the one room in our basement where we had it set up. We have spent the last several nights sleeping on the recliners down there. We have a walk out basement that faces south so there would have been no relief from the heat without that generous gift. Of course all fans, air conditioners etc were sold out everywhere. We had a good chuckle about the fact that we gave two window style air conditioners away a couple of years ago! The one my daughter gave us was small for the size of the room so it could only keep the temperature around 80 to 85. But we were glad to have it be able to do that! Needless to mention, I have not been round to visit all of you yet... You do not have much energy when it is that hot. I plan to visit the rest of you now as the heat is finally moving on and is heading into Alberta, the province east of us. Those poor people...

I used random org to chose our winner and it is # 27, Lynne.

Lynne, could you drop me an email with your address so I can mail your prize to you. My email is

Congratulations to Lynne! We've been reading and hearing about the terrible heat wave that hit Canada and the Western US coast,and am so glad that we aren't caught up in it. Although I live on the west coast of California, the San Francisco bay area has been very cool, and overcast. Never thought I'd be grateful for summer fog!
I'm glad the heat has eased up a bit for you, and hope that you can creep out of your basement level soon and regain the rest of your house and craftroom.

Hi Maureen,
I do so hope it has started to cool down for a couple of days now.
Can't even imagine that heat I am not good with the heat myself.
Congrats to Lynne on her win.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
