It's a ghastly day, weather-wise, here in Sydney. Over 30 degrees, wild gusty westerly winds and low humidity - we all know those conditions result in bushfires. Sure enough, fires have broken out on the northern and southern outskirts of the suburbs. If this is spring, I'm not looking forward to summer.
To escape the weather (and to ease the accompanying hay fever), I've spent the day sewing. My first batch of ATCs is completed and I've started to weave fabric strips for the next.
This is a very time-consuming process, but I also find it quite soothing. Therapeutic, really. The act of weaving quarter-inch strips allows my hands to do the work while my mind wanders. As you can see, there's a long way to go before I've finished these strips. Then I'll fuse them to the interfacing and start the stitching along every strip - horizontally and vertically. So it will take a while, but eventually this piece will end up as another set of ATCs.
Thanks to everyone who looked at my blog yesterday. I've changed the type of counter that's on my blog so you can see how many visitors (scroll down and look at the right-hand side of the screen). Next time it gets near a number with a zero, we can count up together!
I get so excited when people leave comments on my blog. Assuming that other bloggers might feel the same, my new aim is to leave more messages. Imagine the fun if we all did this!
