heat wave.....

so I made the most of the day in a productive fashion.

44 degrees celsius outdoors, inside the fan was on all day long. Ice blocks in glasses of water ,and the sewing machine at hand, I attempted my first shirred waistline on cloth purchased at the Fabric Store in Brunswick. I had seen similar very expensive versions made of silk, and instead used this lovely cotton sateen. 

An easy wear, comfortable addition to my summer wardrobe.

Summer in the suburbs of Melbourne

'Tis 4 pm.

A favourite time of the day here, as the afternoon sunlight filters through the foliage of house plants and reflects light off glass spheres.

Hazy photos taken with iPad.
