Daily Color: "The Summer looks out from her brazen tower, / Through the flashing bars of July." –Francis Thompson, “A Corymbus for Autumn”

The July page from the 2016 Yarndance Temari Calendar honors my mother, who was born in July. The temari is in her kind of colors--bold, bright--and I photographed it against a dress that was one of her favorites, circa 1967, which I have been gradually embellishing with embroidery in her memory. I'll share more about this dress--the Oggi dress--on her birthday.
