so it happens that I am alone at home for three days. A true holiday, a difference. Also, there is a heatwave. 40C in the shade. limiting movement, and food, and sleep.
so how to fill absence in a heatwave?
reflecting, sweating, musing, watering, myself, plants, myself.
the vat is at its happiest
stitching is ok, especially if I don't get too fussy
at night I play around with positioning cloths
made a little blue ridinghood with the cutouts from beachcloth and sea cloth. I think I'll give her a pink madder wolf.
cat, owl, fish is an applique sampler
oh yes, dyeing cloths
sort of madly dyeing- there's nothing like a heatwave to bless pots
also preparing bundles, because a longer absence is in the near future, the best recipe to leave them alone
I surprised a gecko in a bag of leaves
I live with colonies of them, they are vociferous and entertaining
and they eat moths, mosquitoes etc
say hello to grace, mr gecko
the window is from kythera, a seaming window
you can see more of my dyeing on flikr, there on the right
