mini miny moe

even though it has been very cold my tiny moss gardens and baby cyclamen are doing very well.
even the coriander  on the windowsill has withstood a week of freezes. some leaves have turned a dark olive green,almost brown, but the taste has not been altered. 

kokedama covered moss still not attached to the ball.found a tiny plant to put in the hole, but want to work on the moss first.

the heucheras are covered with a ground eggshell top to drive the slugs far so good.
the days are getting a tad longer and i'm looking forward to the new growths. even with the freezes plants do much better here.

abandoning hope, embracing repurposing

this linen warp was supposed to be fabric for a top.not happening.
the issues are so many and so varied that i am weaving  15-20 cms strips that will become a cloth book.
even with lots of mistakes it's going to work.or i'll make it work ಠ ಠ

a vacay from the holidays

spent the whole time trekking,eating, trying to finish projects and studying japanese for the come back testo. the paper was handed back covered in red marks (╯︵╰,)

the franken dress came out fine after some fine tuning of the pattern. old patterns of the shoulder pads era  come out as shapeless drop shoulders and the top of the sleeve needs to be reshaped.the rest is ok.just needs the hem and it's ready.
had some left over fabric, a gorgeous wool voile sourced in tokyo.too little for pants just ok for this top.well not enough,enough as i will have to knit the collar. 'nother project to the pile.
