My husband's family had a tradition of jumping into the pool on the 1st of September, to acknowledge the start of spring. This year the temperature first thing this morning was 1 degree below freezing and is only going to get to 14 degrees Celsius. In my mind that is cold and swimming would just be silly.
My eldest daughter and her boyfriend did scuba diving yesterday when it was even colder, but I suppose if you are wearing a wet suit it would be a bit better. I will pass no further judgement on doing strange hobbies, seeing as I cut up fabric, just to reattach it again in different configurations. So maybe jumping into bodies of water and swimming around is not that weird.
I think we may reconsider the swimming thing on the 20th when it is the actual spring equinox. The peach trees now have their new leaves and a few blossoms left.
My dear Jane is sitting in a bag looking all neglected. I did play with the fabrics that I had as backing, but, I was about a meter short and all of the extra fabrics that I could have used did not do justice to a backing for a Dear Jane. The IQC Africa happens next week so I will wait until then to see what I can find at the show.
I was given a booklet of vouchers, which my husband created, with each voucher being redeemable for 1 fat quarter. This was due to me wanting to get fabric from the show for my birthday present and the show being a month after my birthday. This was just fun as I am always spoilt with vast amount of fabric no matter what.
I hope September turns out to be a quiet month and that countries around the world do not go to war. Once again being cynical it would keep more people employed in the military. The news has been preparing the world for this over the past few months. Ok enough politics.
I watched a TV series showing Zombies, it was really good and had me thinking as to whether it was just a story or whether the creator of the series was trying to be deep and have a socio-economic discussion. Coming from
Africa I could definitely relate with
what was being said.
Have a stunning September.
