There's a pear in there,
And a chair as well.
There's a brand new dress,
That I think is swell.
Oh it's hot, quite a lot.
It's not cool.
The Pear Dress is complete and I have worn it twice. It is a cotton with a kind of sateen finish, light and cool. When I went to cut it out I realised it had nap: all the pears fell the same way. Luckily I had plenty of material, though I always lay out the pattern as if I don't have enough. I am in two minds about the bodice armhole area in the front. I have a hollow outside my collar bones and I am not sure if I should undo the facing and sew the side/front bodice seam closer at the top, or just leave it. The pears are very crazily placed and they really obscure what is happening. I made another biased binding hem. I love it.
My blocks are still lost and likely to remain so for at least a week: 32 29 30 29 30 32 31* Celsius. I can't think when it is hot. The kind Librarian renewed the book I can't find. As soon as it is cool I will be able to resume normal programming, but not now. In an effort to cool the house slightly I hung a heavy corduroy curtain outside the front doors. So now the hall is bathed in a dark green light but that side of the house is cooler.
The State is being over run with rabbits. The hot dry weather means they are moving closer to suburbia. Peri has seen a few at the dam. She's not quite sure where they go when she chases them, but she's covering all the bases: Who's that up there?
Or it could be a lot of fun:
Peri has a much more accommodating car entry style.
And now it is time to stand under the sprinkler again. I may be some time.
