Hot Woolie Woolie

Oregon finally had it's summer heat wave last week. 100 degree days. That's a big bit of hot for us here, because most Oregonians don't have air conditioning. The heat is miserable but doesn't last long. I've got to add that having a cold at the same time as a heat wave is not something I recommend for anyone.

I did finish my tea serving project design for Lark books. I recycling a plain white sweater into this India inspired colorful set of elephant tea cozy and coasters- all hand sewn. Tomorrow I'll give you my secrets for dying wool with powered drink mix (kool aid).

I can't imagine being sick in that heat!
Glad to hear you're feeling better.

I was locked away all weekend working on a wholesale order- and I'm one of those Oregonians without a/c so it was a long hot weekend.
However I do think a/c would pretty much be a waste to install here as it is almost never hot enough to need it.
