Construction Site

The ecclesiastical stole is still under construction. I've applied interfacing, sewed the shoulder and back neck seams (thanks to DH for acting as fitting model so I could get the seam angles right), cut out lining and sewed its seams, then began the binding around the edges. I've got one edge done, the neck edge; tomorrow I'll do the second edge, the outer edge. The bottom edges will be a separate bit of binding - I didn't want to try to make mitered corners on 1/4-inch binding! I know, what a coward I am.

Today's high temperature topped out at 110(F)/43(C). The air conditioning unit for the studio was working hard, but it kept the room a comfortable 82(F) for me. We hope that the prediction for tomorrow is accurate - only the high 90's :-)
