There has been some sewing on the horizon. As you can see here, I was cutting out pieces for my next Barcelona Skirt when Lily had to help as much as she could. Lily has been rather grumpy lately. We've had temperatures in the mid to upper 90's for most of the past week, and I've been bringing her inside by noonish. She's been cranky that I'm not letting her stay out, but a couple of times she's looked almost like she's having heat stroke. She can be very fleet and sneaky, so I've had to go after her a few times, and in her crankiness I've been bitten. Unfortunately for her, I ignore the biting and carry her protesting (and sometimes growling) into the house. I think all the sitting on the pattern pieces and fabric was her revenge. I can deal with biting, especially when the alternative is rushing her to the vet for heat stroke.
Summer of Socks 2009 officially started at 10:00 a.m. on June 21. These are not my SOS socks, but instead part of a pair that are going on hibernation until September 1. I just thought I'd show you a sock picture. I'll have more pictures later this week.
