We're finishing up our Monsoon season with a bang, Phoenix recorded their highest one-day rainfall total yesterday. All the rivers and washes were "running", and we found ourselves gazing at the water rushing, in hopes to remember what that river is supposed to look like. Any other time it is a dry wash, otherwise known as the Santa Cruz River! Here in Tucson, we didn't get great rain totals, but it rained for hours. A rain shower here generally lasts 10-15 minutes, so it was pretty darned exciting!
Since I completed the sashiko on my RR block, things are progressing. I manage to get a seam done here and there. This last weekend, I decided a cherry blossom branch would be good. The bottom of the block had a very straight horizon, and it needed breaking up. I think the branch is still a bit dark, but I'll wait until I've gotten closer to finishing the block to check the overall balance. A few more blossoms here and there should soften it up a bit.
Weekend before last, I purchased 3 asian themed beads and a patina'd Japanese coin to add as a medallion. I can't find them for the life of me, I've "organized" since then. I'm not alone, right?
Have a fabulous week!
