fortunately, this morning I took out a roll of the silk crêpe that I saved for the Japanese-American national Museum workshop in November.
my plan was to do a stitched Shibori piece on this fabric but in experimenting with it I have discovered it’s terribly difficult to stitch on crepe. even the lightweight crepe is hard to push the needle through.
so I will have to make another plan for that fabric.

and another plan for that workshop.

There’s not a lot of difference between yesterday and today. Except for maybe 5°.
It’s going to be hot again today. It’s 7:30 AM and it’s almost 85°.

So, today is one for the A/C. It’s going to be 100°. I was out late last night watering everything down.

Cut down the milkweed and I imagine it will dry very quickly.

Tomorrow and Sunday I have a two day workshop at the Japanese American National Museum. So there is that to prepare and pack for today.
