Anyone know a good rain dance?
But sitting and worrying about stuff is really non productive. The pillowcase warp has seen some action and pillowcase two is almost done and I'm planning number 3. Beautiful new Macomber made aprons have been installed on the Murphy loom and I am planning a prayer flag warp.
Something a bit different. I've been fleshing out the details in my mind and am just about ready to commit to winding it up.
I've also been working on some gift knitting. All I can show you is the selection of little cashmere balls! ;-)
It's quite nice to work with though....
A few makes up in the sewing room, two TSW Florence shirts, both in a rustic medium weight linen. These are more for fall but really, linen is a year round fabric.
I had fun with the little added details on both.
I also tackled another Tina Givens "Bianca" duster, this time in black linen. I had forgotten just how much I dislike working with black and this was a fiddly garment made more so by the color.
It is wonderfully wearable though (has pockets!), and will see a lot of use, so worth the time spent on it.
I'll be spinning at the Josephine County Fair Saturday morning with friend Cindie. I'm not a great spinner but this certainly will be enforced practice and the event should be fun and interesting. I know the company is!
And as I said, it IS the dog days, so parting shots of course reflect that!
