Work In Progress Wednesday - Woolly Summer Blooms

Work In Progress Wednesday:

Trinity Green
I have only added a few new rows of straight line quilting - it's been too hot and humid to work on the bulky quilt.

Greeting Card
I made another greeting card with a basket of summer blooms. Most of them are made with wool and that, too, was a bit to 'woolly' to work in the heat and humidity of Tokyo.
 Most of my Appleton yarn is in muted tones, good for the basket and the greens, but the flowers needed a bit more colour and I added some perl and stranded floss.

I always try to have something light and easy to work on when it is hot and humid - I agree, wool is not ideal!

Very pretty card!

This is a really sweet basket and flowers. I hope the humidity doesn't last long.

I will take your advice. In this case, the wool was easier to grab from the shelf than the other threads in a box behind!!! Lazy!!!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. Maybe a bit overcrowded.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. No, the humidity is getting worse and will last for another two months, at least!

Imagine how cool it is in Colorado. Today I went out and bought a long-sleeved wool shirt! Hard to prepare for a trip here even before the sauna season really hit.

The hot humid weather is a memory or far enough in the future not to think about here. Great for quilting!! I love your cards, they really are unique.

Susan Hook said...

A beautiful card, with lots of stitch variety and colour, the card will make someone very happy!

Queeniepatch said...

I'd rather be wearing a long-sleeved wool shirt than try to pull off my own skin to get cool! It is H O T and H U M I D in Tokyo.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. It was a delight to make, in spite of the 'wrong' material (wool) for the season (hot summer).

Queeniepatch said...

I envy you your quilting conditions! I will have to put the AC on full blast to work on Trinity Green.

Queeniepatch said...

TAST gives me great help to find stitches for these fantasy flowers.

Janie said...

Heat does sap energy! But you're getting things done, more rows on Trinity and cheerful summer flowers in a basket, thanks for sharing.

I like the combo of wool and perle thread on your card.

Love the basket of blooms

Séverine said...

Beautiful card.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you!

Thank you!

The perle adds a bit of shine to the dull wool.

Heat is an energy sucker! The power network is working hard to feed all ACs and the human body goes into slow motion.
