Wristlet With a Sunny Disposition

The Heat is Still On!

The color of my most recent sewing project seems appropriate for the extremely high temperatures we have been experiencing for a few weeks here in New Hampshire....this girl has been on fire! ...and not in a good way! 

I love summer. Don't get me wrong! But the heat and humidity are not my friends. They just don't agree with me.  I am both happy and relieved to report that the heat will become less extreme beginning tomorrow. I cannot wait! I am going to open every window in the house. I love temperatures in the high 70's and low 80's and zero humidity! 

I sat out on my very hot porch today and finished sewing this little batik wristlet. I could not even sew in a straight line. Seriously!

This is a practice project. I am making up the pattern pieces as I go. The finished bag is approximately 6"x8" and self-lined. I made the wrist strap a bit longer and attached a little bow.

Anyways, another project completed... Tonight we are expecting storms ahead of the approaching cold front. I say, "bring on the rain!" Hope you are cool wherever you happen to be! 

"Reds, yellows and oranges conjure up sunlight and fire, while the blues and blue-greens evoke snow and ice, sea, sky and moonlight."
