I am happy to report to you that I made it safely back home yesterday evening. Let me tell you, going from the cool Washington temperatures (in the 70s F) to my home in the Southwest (over 100 for many, many days now) is a bit of a shock. I have barely gone outside all day. But that’s not unusual for here in the summer.
All this time indoors has given me the opportunity to work on a few projects I had put off for a while now. Do you remember a while back when I made my lovely striped maxi-skirt? Well at the same time that I bought that fabric I also bought fabric for another maxi-skirt. This one is cream and olive and is reversible. It was a bit tricky figuring the seams out where I joined the skirts together because I didn’t want any seams showing, but after much tearing out of stitches I’m pretty sure I finally got it right. I’ll post pictures in the near future.
The other project I’ve been working on is that piece for the back of my sweater that I showed you pictures of a while ago. In the pictures it’s still in several pieces and all that needed doing was to put it together with an edging. I’ve done that and am now just finishing a few details to make it extra pretty. I’ll post pictures when it’s done. I’m quite pleased with how it’s coming out, especially since I was afraid I wouldn’t have enough thread. But it turns out that I’ll have more than enough thread, so I have no more fear on that account.
