When it gets hot, I like to wear cool watery colors - blues and aquas and greens. Same with my projects: I gravitate towards working with cool color threads - blues, greens, aquas.... Ahh!
Here are a few cool projects I've created in the past, that I thought you'd appreciate seeing in the midst of a hot summer day:
OCEAN WAVES (how perfect is that on a scorching July day?)
MOORISH TILES (this is a real optical illusion piece!)
REFLECTING POOLS (totally cool project, but requires focusing to count all the boxes...maybe not
the best "no-brainer" piece for a hot day - grin!)
BLUEBONNET COLLAGE (just looking at these flowers makes me think of a field of bluebonnets waving in the breeze, and calms me down)
IRIS KIMONO (a very serene blue pattern)
Hope you're staying cool and enjoying all the best things about a summer's day!
