It is so hot here at the moment – in the mid 30s – I don’t mind so much during the day but I hate it when it’s too hot at night. I have finally given in, realised that I must live in semi darkness and, like the French, close my shutters against the sunshine. I must admit, it definitely keeps the house cooler but, in my opinion, it’s a high price to pay.
Anyway, mustn’t complain, I’m off to the U.K. at the weekend for a wedding so that’ll probably cool me down.
Been busy making stuff as usual and I am quite pleased with this table runner. I knew I wanted to use the birdy fabric with black but wasn’t sure about the side panels so went mad and chose the polka dots. I think (hope) it works. The back is a straight run of the bird fabric because it’s so lovely I wanted to use a whole stretch of it and it’s a side for calmer moments.
