I wasn't sewing as much as I'd have liked. Fatigue and the heat seemed overbearing these days. I took to the air conditioned room with the laptop, looking and dreaming of chiffon evening party dresses far too much. I put an end to it by finally settling my mind on one, ahem and got the rest of my head straight for completing the tasks I've set out to do. Making pouches to add on to my 50 pouch project, for one.
I used my calico this time, cut up around the printed blue, backed with corduroy and lined with pre-loved floral sheet cotton. All 12 completed today.
and sometime this week, Friday(?) after lunch, Brian rescued a fallen bird from the nasty drain in front of our home. It wasn't our first encounter up close to a small bird.
Brian seems to have an affinity for this. He gave the bird a quick shower, pat it dry and let it rest in a shoebox which we left in a flower bed. It didn't stay long. The bird flew right off after seeing me (with a toothbrush in my mouth, yep) when I went to check on it about an hour later.
