one hank - two hours later

Been off to have my hair refuschied (for Christmas?) - the streets in Mt Hawthorn were unusually quiet.It's very hot but Ian tells me it's as low as it is going to go for a number of days. Turned on the air con in the studio but it didn't  seem to be working. As I was ironing I thought it was just me. Turns out I had the heat cycle on.... At least it was quickly remedied unlike next door's air con which  has been going non stop for nearly 2 weeks on hot and they have the doors and windows open and not many clothes. Also means they have to listen to Gin Wigmore up very loud coming from the studio to block out the noise from their cheap and nasty unit. Can only imagine what their electricity bill will be and can only wonder why no-one has come to fix it..... How come you cannot hear my air con from anywhere?

Above is one hank of sari ribbon which took me two hours to iron. I am about to use it to make something. Come back and see what before too long.

The waterlily is sticking right out of the water but has not flowered yet - I think it is blue.

Note to self: do the Christmas shopping tomorrow.

Did our Christmas shopping yesterday incase the roads got bad again. The 'war of the air-cons' makes amusing reading but it must be irritating to have to hear it all day and everyday. Love the look of the hank of sari silk and can't wait to see what you do with it. Have a lovely Christmas and keep cool!!

Ohhh look at those luscious colours, I have mine hanging in my studio above my sewing machine, they are like jewels when the light gets behind them.
Our temperature is supposed to be a very civilised 28c Christmas day,I hope yours isn't too hot.
Have a lovely Christmas and a very creative 2011.

We did our food shopping today and the pressies (except for Ebony's)will be purchased in the after Christmas sales--everyone was agreeable to do this.
Sounds a bit like the Grinch doesn't it.
Have a great Christmas Dale and Ian.

I just ironed a bunch of sari ribbon and the wrinkles are still in...do you wet them, or use a highter (than silk) setting on the iron? I'm itching to use mine!
