The highlight of summer ?
It is, in our dance around the sun
but not when you think of the weather at the moment ...
my Summer Solstice piece is finished.
(just in time yesterday evening,
to participate in a solstice fire daughter and her best friend had
noooo, they didn't burn it, I think )
Summer Solstice 2014
Still think it was such a good idea to start
with the woven fabric strips.
Though it wasn't easy to stitch
because the cotton scraps that Sus dyed herself,
was such tightly woven cotton, that it was hard to pull the needle
with the thick cotton that I used most of the time, through.
(even needed pliers sometimes !)
I hope for a lot of "real" warm summer still to come,
and "down under" ... slowly but surely, the days will get longer.
