Normally, I don’t hit my worst Summer Slump until August, but this year it appears to have come a bit early. I hate the heat. I’ve got to move somewhere that doesn’t have temperatures above 80 in the summer or below 30 in the Winter.
Luckily, though, we’re going to Canada for a couple of weeks in August. We’ll be in Newfoundland for most of the trip, but we’re driving, so we’ll see a little of Nova Scotia as well. I’m still waiting on my passport. We called, and they’re a bit behind schedule, but they’ve been mailed out, so we should get it soon.
I’ve been making felt bowls for the Life is Good Productions art auction: Art is Good. It’s on the 19th in Hopkinton. You should go. More info at the LIGP website. I’ll be in Canada during that time, but I’m donating the bowls to be auctioned. I hope they come out as I’m intending them to. That’s the funny thing with felt: sometimes you get surprised when it comes out of the washing machine. I plan on hand felting it so I have more control over the process. We’ll see. The first one is rather large, so hand-felting might be tiresome.
