I knew the mystery roving of yesterday had felted a little… but when I started working with it last night it was not anywhere as bad as I thought it was going to be. As it turns out, there was quite a bit more in that rather compacted length of roving than it looked like! The color is very close to the heather that I was looking for when we started this. After it has been plied it will be easier to see. I’m not sure what project this will turn into, but for now it has been enormous fun just exploring the possibilities.
The temperature here in North Texas has been “Augusty” for the last couple of weeks. No daytime high under 100°F for the last several days and to continue for another few days. Some as high as 106°-111°F. This has been and will be a great time for indoor crafting… Not to mention the winds that remind me on a daily basis of Perryton, TX where the wind is non-stop hot in the summer and bone blasting cold in the winter. Sure looking forward to a little rain…someday…
This flower is in my front flowerbed. I love it. I have no idea what the name of it is but will be looking it up as soon as I publish this post. I miss all of the lovely views from our old home, but must say I am truly loving our new home. It will just take time to make it our own with trees and gardens. ;o)
Hope you’re having a great summer.. ♥
