time for change

it was rather smelly and alive!

morning sun shining through


like the look of this

and once the jacket was washed and dried and ironed, I tried it on and I still didn't like the look of it (on me), and then it hit me: shorter! it needs to be shorter; so I pinned it upwards and that looked a lot better.......so  out came the scissors and snip snip the bottom part was cut away and I have been sewing in the shade of the verandah all afternoon and will post more tomorrow!

hiya ladies, it just had to come out yesterday: it was rather smelly and moldy, the temperatures here soared in a few days, very nice for a sun lover like me. I have used the cut-offs as you can see in today's post. I intend on dyeing more using this 'wicking technique' I like the unpredictability of it. I am now on the lookout for everything linen, because I have 'discovered' it is so pleasant to work with, and I enjoy wearing it.
