Today was my errand and lunch day. And a very warm and muggy one. This afternoon, I retreated to the my sewing studio in the cool house where I finally pulled the tulip piece out to work at finishing it.
The garden view through the studio window is very green and lush right now. I will soon be busy picking and processing some beans.
Even with the overhead fan and the AC on, I kept the shears pulled against the sun. With some gentle background music, I set about adding some highlights to the tulips.
I'm not quite to the point of adding the batting and quilting, but almost. I'm excited about that part.
I want to add a little shimmer to the dragonfly body before I attach the wings.
Here's a shot of some of the background texture.
I feel quite weak even though it's cool in here. It must be the oppressive mugginess. Time to stop for a bite to eat.
