August was a month of travelling as well as hot, hot, dry days with severe watering restrictions that destroyed my lawn and garden. Then the last three days brought in a strong and windy storm that knocked over trees with dry rootballs and a 40 hour power outage at my home and studio. The storm and wind blew off our neighbour’s skylight which landed not ten feet from my husband who was tying down our canopy over the hot tub. the canopy ended up getting ripped to sheds anyway.
Luckily for weavers and spinners we have low tech crafts, that we can continue as long as we have daylight. I only had to wait for the power to come back on so that I could wash and iron the August towels. And so, without further ado, I present the completed towels here:
