lupine in the rain
We have had a record breaking amount of rain recently which is always a cause for celebration in a desert environment. Average yearly precipitation here is 13.95 inches and evenly divided throughout the year. The wettest month is January with an average of 2.03 inches. Sunday-Monday this week saw Klamath receiving a whopping 0.91 inches of rain in a 24 hour period.

I stayed warm and dry in my new sewing cave
and made great progress on my Butterick vest. Here is a teaser photo~ I want to take some better photos before showing the complete vest and the inside. Stats: B 5473 in home dec weight linen. The color of this lightly textured linen is a blue grey, almost the exact color of the storm clouds over the Gulf of California above. I used approximately 2 1/2 yards of the linen, some scraps of contrast for binding, and some lace. Total cost= $31.00 (linen $12/yd on sale). I'll add in a complete review in a day or so.
finally, I want to tell you how nice it is to be home and blogging with all of you
