Silk and wood
A commissioned necklace using silks, leather cord, wooden beads and copper findings. All hand sewn, which I enjoy doing. I'm thinking about starting a bigger hand sewing project this winter- I love the look of sashiko embroidery. Such repetitive simple patt...

Stamps and hoarding
I have been meaning to try stamp carving since forever. I was inspired by Melissa's posts , she's been doing it for years. Next I'd like to try doing some hand-stamped fabric. But that might be a while away. Right now I am trying to finish projects, and hav...

Dusty cars
My Uncle Jos's backyard is filled with what Max calls "dusty cars". He means rusty, but they're dusty too. It’s no crime to be tired of the sun, to be secretive, hiding your pain. We peer now into the choppy rooms, the windows wavy with age and rain. Let th...

A new dressing gown
I found this vintage dressing gown pattern at the bottom of my pattern stash. Just perfect for a summery dressing gown. I bought some light floral cotton and it came together so quickly. Such an easy project and I wear it everyday. I am trying to be more th...

I bought Toby a Gocco machine for Christmas. An unsuccessful first attempt put us off for a while, but I was given a few tips and had another go. And it works! If you've not heard of it before, Gocco is a Japanese home screenprinting system- not a toy but q...
I bought Toby a Gocco machine for Christmas. An unsuccessful first attempt put us off for a while, but I was given a few tips and had another go. And it works! If you've not heard of it before, Gocco is a Japanese home screenprinting system- not a toy but quite basic. They stopped making them, ...
