Sun, rain and snow... embroidered

We’re in the midst of a heatwave here in Johannesburg and it is hot in the city! The air is heavy with heat and oppressively still, broken only by sporadic wafts of air as the fan reaches the end of each oscillation. In complete contrast, some of you up north will be seeing a little snow round about now if the world weather reports are accurate – especially if you live somewhere in Scandinavia. It’s the perfect time for a weather-related embroidery round-up.
