Striped tablecloth becomes curtain.







You can tell we're hot here. Too hot to continue our usual activities outside. today, photographs of our laundry. This old table was being discarded by a neighbour, so, realising the quality of the piece, and it's simple functional design, i gave it a good clean in borax solution, ( as it bears evidence of woodworm infestation). I then Painted the legs and scrubbbed the top thouroughly. No sign of wood worm in the last three years of ownership which is excellent.
Galvanized tin bucket from a friend. 
HAndmade soap by me.

So , so hot at 36 degrees here in Melbourne.
Just a little to do today at home. Washing out  on the line this morning, then spent an hour or so sketching on the ipad.
This afternoon while leafing through a Peppermint magazine on loan from the library, I came across a coconut and tahini cookie recipe that requires setting in the fridge ie no baking involved , so I had a go at those. 
I feel I must keep moving on days like these as when I sit down I seem to fell the heat more, or become more aware of it.
Now I'm off to try one of these cool and tasty looking morsels.
