Some wear ‘hearts on their sleeves’, I am hoping to wear ‘leaves’ – on my skirt this summer. The print is from local eucalyptus and cotinus I did last year on a lovely medium weight silk. I cut it into wide strips and made several samples from which I was able to construct the skirt this week. I still have plenty left and can’t wait to turn it, possibly to a tunic/dress.
I have sewn few other things for the girls, spun a short length of a fibre, but in general life has been very busy and I have very little time for creativity these days. I feel peaceful about it though, just quietly waiting for a change.
