When it's hot and everybody smiles I can't help myself

still life
I like real pears too, as long as I remember to eat them before they get too soft. I had just washed this one (hence the drips of water) and a few minutes after this photo was taken, I had eaten it too.

Disappointingly, the last lot of pears, those little ones, never ripened to be edible. I did try one just in case.

new stuff

New wool lines are appearing for Autumn, and I'm thinking that Cleckheaton Kaleidoscope could go some way towards filling the gap left by Sean Sheep Armytage. It has the long colour repeats and it test-felted nicely. The price is a bit steep for a cheapskate like me, so I'll be waiting til the end-of-season markdowns. I'm ridiculously patient sometimes. The Moda Vera stuff is 50% acrylic and testing shows it might felt ok, but with stitch definition still showing, I suspect.
