After hesitating between spring and summer, the seasons have finally changed.
Each day this week has been bright blue and biting hot and over the week I've completed a summer ritual. I've washed and packed away my winter clothes and aired and hung up my summer clothes, and my windows, too, are now wearing gauzy white cotton.
Fine white cotton reflects the heat away and lets a soft light fill the room, a light that is easy to read and work in.
I made these last year, handsewing leftover indigo fabric pieces along the tops and sides. It's really summer now and I'm ready for the heat and glare of the sun.
