time flies


weeping willow a week ago

bought two shirts at the thrift store, this one will be modified to fit better, bit tight under the armpits! 



first attempt at making necklace using African (seed)beads combined with wood slices I bought in the garden centre (used for plant decoration and such) and here's me wearing the new piece, also wearing a gorgeous bright green jacket I got for free !! in the Geefwinkel



shirt number two, no modifications apart from the dye and a running stitch on the collar, can you spot the bird house on the back?

ended up adding two strips to widen the blouse, and am now thinking: why not make it into a very wide thin djellaba type of blouse, sewing the sleeves on at right angles.....making life less complicated for self...or perhaps leaving it sleevless altogether

the only two red tulips to have survived the digging efforts by himself below
