what i've been up to


while keeping my breath and trying not to die-note the spelling- from heat stroke.
sitting outside under the parasol and stitching slowly to conserve energy. it's not only the heat, 32┬║ c, but the heat index. i can fry eggs in the studio with all that noon sun hitting it.

stitching is  soothing energy conserving  work.
as you can see this is variations on a herringbone theme.
scraps of the wool herringbone fabric i wove last winter that could not bear to throw away. still have more. odds and ends, the dotted fabric was from a bag of gifted scraps. 
hand and machine stitching; still not sure about the hefty herringbone maybe it's an overkill. too hot to think clearly. help!

  8. I see sandpipers running from the cool water's edge, leaving their tiny footprints in the sand. Love the herringbone!
