A Week In June
The weather here has taken a turn to the weird. We put up the shade cloths to make the AC more efficient and to keep it from getting too hot in the family room, and now that we are prepared for the summer, it started raining. In June. Still wet out there today. Since I am off tomorrow, I will be potting up all my seed sprouts, especially the basil, so I hope the rain goes away.
In other news, I sewed up a storm over last weekend, finishing the black shirt and three cap-sleeved t-shirts. I have several other t-shirts cut out, so I will sew them this weekend, and maybe make a few more pairs of black pants. A while ago, when my sister-in-law brought over her friend's fabric stash to be divided between my sisters and I, I took a few lengths of strange retro fabric. One of them, a bright red and gold doubleknit print, I made into a t-shirt, which, surprisingly, I like very much and wear a lot. There is something about how out-of-date the print is and how bright it is that makes me like it. There is also a piece of animal print suede cloth with some sparkle to it, a cloth well down the road to ugliness, but I think it would be fun to have a t-shirt out of that too. I do love the retro fabrics. I could wear the animal print with lots of thick blue eyeshadow. No, maybe not.
In knitting news, there is none.
