Whoosh! Where is the summer going? Instead of doing any creating this week, I have been doing alterations for friends at work. Perhaps you remember a post several months ago when I asked how to say no to these requests. I still haven't figured it out, and I really do like to help my friends (sort of). This week I have shortened three skirts, two of them pleated, and one a dizzying plaid. I also shortened three pairs of pants and shortened the sleeves on one jacket.
Even though it is not my favorite kind of sewing, nothing beats the feeling of delight I get when I have the whole pile finished. Yay!
We have had the most glorious weather complete with blue sky, puffy white clouds, and a pleasant breeze. I was going to show you some more flower photos, but they look a lot like all the other flower photos I have shown you, so I decided not to bore you with them.
We have a friendly orb weaver residing just outside our front window. Every night he (or she, how can you tell?) spins the most intricate web, with the lines so close together, maybe 1/4 of an inch. We love to watch him (or her) at work. By the next morning the web is gone except for one central line, and the spider is doing whatever he does all day. By evening he is back to his weaving project. The morning glories have reached his territory, and we do wonder how much of a disturbance winding vines are to an orb weaver.
I hope you have read "Charlotte's Web" by E.B. White. If you have, you will feel quite friendly toward this large (as spiders go) brown eight legged creature.
I wish you the very best on this most glorious day.
