Summer is upon us. Yesterday, we hit 105. It sounds crazy to say, "I'm so glad it's only supposed to be 96 today." I mean, really. When you think of CA, do you think of 100+? No, I didn't think so.
The heat inspired this postcard, which I made yesterday, for our Art Group's "Celebrate" exchange. I was going to celebrate "dog days of summer," but I couldn't find any dog fabric. Instead, I celebrated "yellow."
In other news, the walnuts are still growing, and despite our heavy pruning in January - "because you're probably going to have a lot of breakage this year" - the breakage is heartrending. We're not just talking branches, we're talking BRANCHES.
Best of the Valley Ladies. They are now hanging around out back, drying out a bit. This is not their permanent home, that remains to be decided. We used to have a wearable competition at the quilt show, but participation dropped off so much that we dropped it. But we still have the ladies. Aren't they lovely?
