Last Flourish of Summer

This morning the waning moon hung distant in the sky. The days are noticeably shorter.  Darkness comes at 7:30 but summer is still hanging on and sending temperatures soaring.  100 degrees yesterday.  Ninety degrees in San Francisco, unheard of!

Michael and I went to Capitola at the beach for dinner to sit outside where it was much cooler than here on our hill.  Cool enough the outdoor heaters were lit.

The garden still pushes it's produce but shows signs of winding down.

In my studio I've been dyeing and gathering items, making piles of like things to create with.  But not now, not today, it's a bit too warm and we don't have AC so I just putter around and sit in front of the fan stitching these scarves.

And I'll weave these crochet runners together with silk ribbons, both of which I've dyed using natural dyes.

The heat here in LA is still hovering in the upper 90's to 100's so I understand just puttering around without AC to keep you comfortable enough to get more work done - that is my problem too =-\

Love the images you are sharing here of your beautiful dyed goods - can't wait to see what they turn into! =-)

It has been delightfully cool, but not cold here. I love your piles - they're creative inspirations. How'd you get that beautiful pink with natural dyes?
