Unintentional Fibre Week!

Hi friends, It has finally cooled down enough to feel like I can do things again. Our house is an oven and the other week it was regularly hitting +30 C (86-89 F) and it was extremely oppressive. It was hard to keep the birds cool and despite being tropical birds, they were suffering as much as the people. My husband came down with a dreaded summer cold as well!

It was so hot I couldn't even bear to read to keep my mind off of it. Sleepless nights abounded. The craftiest thing I could get up to was warping a loom for a new tapestry. It required very little thought and the only decisions to be made was selecting colours.

By good fortune, I also had an eye appointment which was very close to one of Calgary's premier wool shops, Gina Brown's. Thank goodness tapestry wool is inexpensive :-)

Muffin loves fibre arts as much as I do...and I have had trouble keeping him out of the tapestry wool :-)



  1. This picture is too funny! Love it! I am glad it has cooled down a bit ;o) It keeps going up and down for us. But, I would say more up! LOL! We need rain badly!

  2. Hi Stacey, we're back to being hot again :( At least in the office there's air conditioning.

    We have had Muffin for almost three years now and life is never dull :D
