Is a tad cooler today.....
Some would say that a portable air conditioner in a room the size of my studio on an exceptionally hot day is a bit like that saying about adding a small quantity of liquid to a river.... But I can tell you, it made the difference between managable warmth and suffocating fan-forced oven.
I often refer to my "sewing cave", meaning my hideaway retreat where I can be a alone and do what feeds my soul...where I contemplate life and clip seams. In hot weather it takes on a whole new meaning - those huge windows are draped with heavy curtains and I have no decent light in which to photograph anything!
My desk is covered in paperwork, printed-out pattern tests and endless cups of tea. Although the pile of little gifts (including an as-yet-unblogged swiney from Gina from early winter - which still makes me smile) is close by - a little patch of happiness that I've meant to photograph for ages.
The wee girl's creative space was all about making a family of pet turtles for her calico dolls using embossed mock-croc paper for the shells.
Personally, I got very little done - what with all the air-con purchasing and installation, and then getting ready for my patternmaking class tonight. Oh... and all that wilting and whinging about the weather.... However, I managed to photograph (in the cave) the 3 little dresses I finished last night - cut out over a week ago.
Gotta love a quick kid's dress pattern for instant gratification (the 3 of them took me an hour and a half all up). And this cow print is just a bit too cute for words.
To take a peek into other creative spaces, mosey on over to Kirsty's....
