In this crazy "spring" we are having, the weather suddenly turned hot, and we reached record highs for May. It was 31C (which translates to high 80's for the Americans) , not at all what we expect for mid May. I felt wilted and didn't get much done in the way of sewing. This was followed by thunderstorms and heavy rain. today, things are a bit more normal.
Sadly, my apple blossoms didn't do well in the hot weather.
They are nearly finished and they just opened.
The pink ones look very sad! Hopefully, we will get enough little crab apples to feed the birds over the winter.
I am actually finishing a quilt, started a very long time ago,
The top resurfaced in my recent tidying and I took it to the long arm quilter to be finished. Now, it just needs its binding.
I do have plans for a couple of new bags. With this in mind, I placed an order with Emmaline Bags and got some new hardware in sizes I didn't have in stock. This is suited to smaller bags.
Kind of boring, isn't it. Hopefully it will make the bags look classy.
Finally, I was cleaning out a closet and came across this.
This is my shirt from my university days. WISE stands for Women in Science and Engineering. At the time, women made up about 2% of all engineering students, so we were proudly trying to make our presence known. The numbers are higher now, but not what they should be. Sad, because I don't understand what prevents women from joining the profession.
