Well. summer should be winding down but it isn't. It is actually worse than our usual summer where we get hot days (with some cool nights) for about 4 days and then a storm rolls in and the temperature drops 10-15 degrees. Then it starts up again.
Not this time - we are having hot days (but not ridiculously hot - only about in the low to mid 30s (C), mid 90s (F)) but the nights are staying warm, and the days are gradually warming up more and more. It is forecast to be 37C in a couple of days and the nights are progressively warmer - they do cool down a bit, of course. It is all very enervating though.
As I have already said, I am doing an online workshop for the Traveller's Blanket. I have decided to use pieces of fabric that I have left over from my years of playing around with textiles. Some pieces go back to the 80s, when I did a bit of silk painting. Some are from quilts I have made, screen printing, needle felting with the embellisher, silk dyeing, silk paper, fabric painting, sewing classes, etc. I was going to put in some knitting but it was too bulky. Most of the fabric selection is sorted, I have left some empty spots either for new stuff I do in the meantime (it is going to take a while to finish) or just to leave empty, to show that my journey is not finished.
I am now up to the hand embroidery. I have started because I visited a friend who has very efficient air conditioning but it has just been too hot at home lately to have a blanket on my lap and be doing hand embroidery. So I will try again in a week or so, or when I visit my friend.
