1. Tess and I make a much anticipated trip top the fabric store. The pattern books brim with possibilities and I can barely contain myself from wanting to make everything. Tess chooses two complimentary fabrics that are perfect for her project. She has a keen eye for color and design and I love what she puts together.
2. I have a project too! I've had the pattern for years and the wool arrived in the mail via ebay today. It's restful hand work to fit my summer mood, something I can stitch at my leisure.
3. The smell of summer rain when it first falls on the hot macadam.
