Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter
Oh, it's been so hot here. Too hot for cooking, cleaning, sorting, or icecream making. Late on those hot nights, I would crank the fan up in the sewing room, put the soundtrack to Glee on the little stereo, and sew, sweat, unpick and swear, then sweat and unpick some more until the soundtrack was over. Then I knew I'd definitely had enough, so I'd pack up, have a cold shower and head to bed. It hasn't been a very productive week for sewing as a result, but I do have a top mostly finished except for the hand sewn yoke, and I also have a Barbra Streisand song (and a little bit of Rolling Stones) in my head, thanks to Glee.
Yes, I am a Gleek, and proud of it.
It's cooler tonight, but I don't think there will be any sewing for a few days. Our bestie is coming to visit this weekend so tonight I made mango and passionfruit icecream for her. I think icecream making and cool changes go well together, and I also think it might be my best icecream yet.
