Suddenly it's summer

Summer has returned to Toronto, the old-fashioned kind -- subtropical. (At least, this year, we cut down on air-conditioning costs.) I can't say I've missed it much; I seem to feel better in cooler weather. End of obligatory Canadian weather talk.

I am happy to report that for all my working the last couple of days on some projects, my work area is still respectable and that's solely due to the new shelving, especially the cabinets. Everything has its place, and after use it all goes back into its place. Bliss!

A nod to Martha Stewart: I've been wanting to make fabric strawberries, but couldn't figure out the how until I found the pattern and instructions on Martha Stewart's website. I practised with a couple, then started cutting into my red velvet. A little wonky, to be sure...
