But....autumn is here and the temperature is lovely at the moment. There are clouds (no rain!) which was excellent to do winter cleaning in the garden. Yesterday, together with a friend, I pulled out all the tomato, ocra, courgettes plants. We left three eggplant and two pepper plants, creating space enough to put in the winter veggies. Tomorrow I am going to the market to buy some.
I did do some sewing, though, during the summer.
I made two messenger bags. There are rather big, because they can hold a laptop. They are padded.
I like big buttons and started to look for vintage ones. Not easy! I have to go again to Athens to start searching for things like this.
This is the second one, in turquoise colours, more summary.
And a shopping/beach bag. I didn't go to the beach at all this year! I love to swim, but because I am very fair with a white sensitive skin, I can't sit in the sun. I get even burned under an umbrella!
To get to the beach you need a three quarters of an hour drive. Just to swim it is too long for me. I would like to stay at a place at the sea. Swim early morning, late afternoon and then sit somewhere in the shade and read. Didn't happen this year, maybe next!
The piece of embroidery I bought at the Athens' flea market. I went there with my quilting friend Theodora in spring. The embroidery was in a frame. The salesman was emphasizing how nice the frame was. I had no interest for the frame, though! The only thing I am interested in is fabric, embroidery, buttons. It is getting an obsession. I am becoming a REAL quilter?
And the last photograph, a more detailed picture of the messenger bag.
