The rain has started again. Last Saturday was over 90 degrees, today, we'll be lucky to make it to 70. Fly nags me until I take him to every door and open it for him. He thinks Summer is still hiding somewhere out there. But no, there is rain behind every door.
Often there will be a parting kiss of summer in early October, then the water year opens for business and the omnipresent rain will begin again.
So I have been sewing - a comforting thing to do when it rains. Listening to Terry Potter's Wee Free Men
and crafting quilts for the orphans. Here's the green side. This is fabric given to me by LG. It's a lot of fun to use someone else's palette.
And here's the brown side. And still, pounds of fabric sing to me, promising to keep orphans warm and well loved in places all over the world. I need to get more thermal layers. Old blankets, or bags of batts. Time to shop!
Leftovers never go to waste. Here's scraps from the green side, creating a new tea cozy.
And here's the red side of the tea cozy, because JoAnne's had a 40% off for seniors day, and I couldn't help myself. I should have bought batting, but I need a new tea cozy to go with my new big teapot, and I wanted a red one!
