Work In Progress Wednesday - Woolly Summer Blooms

Work In Progress Wednesday:

Trinity Green
I have only added a few new rows of straight line quilting - it's been too hot and humid to work on the bulky quilt.

Greeting Card
I made another greeting card with a basket of summer blooms. Most of them are made with wool and that, too, was a bit to 'woolly' to work in the heat and humidity of Tokyo.
 Most of my Appleton yarn is in muted tones, good for the basket and the greens, but the flowers needed a bit more colour and I added some perl and stranded floss.

  1. I always try to have something light and easy to work on when it is hot and humid - I agree, wool is not ideal!

    1. I will take your advice. In this case, the wool was easier to grab from the shelf than the other threads in a box behind!!! Lazy!!!

    1. Thank you. Maybe a bit overcrowded.

  3. This is a really sweet basket and flowers. I hope the humidity doesn't last long.

    1. Thank you. No, the humidity is getting worse and will last for another two months, at least!

  4. Imagine how cool it is in Colorado. Today I went out and bought a long-sleeved wool shirt! Hard to prepare for a trip here even before the sauna season really hit.

    1. I'd rather be wearing a long-sleeved wool shirt than try to pull off my own skin to get cool! It is H O T and H U M I D in Tokyo.

    1. Thank you. It was a delight to make, in spite of the 'wrong' material (wool) for the season (hot summer).

  6. The hot humid weather is a memory or far enough in the future not to think about here. Great for quilting!! I love your cards, they really are unique.

  8. Heat does sap energy! But you're getting things done, more rows on Trinity and cheerful summer flowers in a basket, thanks for sharing.

    1. Heat is an energy sucker! The power network is working hard to feed all ACs and the human body goes into slow motion.

  9. I like the combo of wool and perle thread on your card.

    1. The perle adds a bit of shine to the dull wool.
