It is very hot here and very humid ... and guess what is affected more than myself ? ... my water-soluble ! Yup, started to develop bigger holes than necessary whenever my sewing machine needle dove through it ... I couldn't keep up making the threads fill over the holes. So, now, all tucked safely away in a well-sealed plastic container.
The sun is shining at the moment but rain expected and it's sooo hot ! Imagine that ... complaining already about our changeable weather ... just last week it was cold and rainy ... now it's too hot ... and still rainy !
I do not have air conditioning so all my windows are open a bit to let air in but the moisture comes with it. There is just a breathe of a breeze coming in my window so that I can blog a bit in relative comfort ... of course having very little on, helps ;)
Not being able to work on my project is ok, though, as I need more thread. I accidentally bought 2 spools of the wrong colour the other day ... will attempt to exchange them today when the store opens at noon. The manager at our local fabric store is such a witch and I know I'll get a hassle from her ... but I will win !!!
In an earlier post I mentioned re-visiting my piece 'Winter's Lace', which I forgot to take pictures of before I entered it in a show ... but I did get photos at our opening. I really like the revision.
Not something I would have spontaneously done myself ... but it was fun to watch the enthusiasm of the other members ! Some artists are so productive !
