Well between the heat and a nasty case of poison ivy on my hands (and arm, ears, scalp and maybe my nose...) I am working with beads instead of fabric for a few days. (hard to keep that anti-itch-pink stuff from getting all over everything and it is so much easier to just wipe it off a bead!)
My friend Paula and her daughter came over and made some bracelets and key-chains. I worked on a necklace that has been "ready" to string for about the past 3 (or maybe 5?) years! Nice to know my bead stash ages as well as my fabric one does!I also got a great surprise in the mailbox today! (Thank you Karol-Ann!) I knew something fun was there as I approached the end of the driveway and could smell...was, that lavender? The little scottie dog is stuffed with lavender and with 100 degree heat it must have scented the entire mail truck! It makes me think of the Cotswolds in England where the lavender bushes were huge!
I don't know yet what I will make with the South African fabrics...I'm thinking table runner so I can show them off in my dining room...I'll have to move fast so it will be done before the soccer is over though! Now I think I will go make myself a cuppa and a shortbread finger before my DH gets home and gets his hands on them!
