oh, it has been too long since my last post. the end of summer was filled with good work, good times, and beautiful weather. we went to great weddings. saw a lot of family we don't get to see very often. it was really nice.
now the fall is truly falling! we are in our friend tobey's house for the winter, and it is surrounded by hardwood forest. the leaves are gorgeous, and they rain down in sheets. the ground is covered in gold, and dark red. it has been kind of mesmerizing.
anyways! i'm working on the october CSA orders! they are chugging along! AND i sent out an order to a boutique in Mosman, NSW, Australia! so, if you're there the shop is called INESE and it is on Military Road. COOL! the clothing images above is what was sent.
OK! Back to work!
a new fabric for the Japanese pants! this is a very cool woven silk. very texturey, very nubbly. it's kind of a bronzey brown. in the ETSY shop
and! a new skirt! Hand block print cotton from Jaipur. hidden side zip, above knee length. this skirt can also be made with one tier, making it shorter. i'll be making this out of silk crepe de chine for fall/winter!
It's almost the end of July! Wait! Slow down! It has been very beautiful here. Flowers everywhere, green everywhere,
Lots of great garden vegetables - the peas!!! Favas are getting ready.
Frances and I scored excellent bicycles at the Salvation Army, and we are tearing around the back roads of Freedom. Really, it's more like daintily pedaling in first gear while trying to look like we have fine carriage. English accents the whole time - I say! This hill forthcoming looks dreadful!
A new tank top! Has an elastic at the bottom hem. Allows the fabric to fall nicely - kind of like a bubble hem. Shown with a basic short linen skirt.
A skirted short dress. 30" in length. I wear my brown/black one constantly. Mostly over jeans, or over a swim suit, or with another skirt under that's just slightly longer, and with the same fullness.
And, therefore, a new thing that I will wear every day! This apron design has proven to be the finest of all that I've tried. And, I love a good apron. The tie around the neck things weigh me down. This one does not tie, it's like an overall. It is roomy, and straight, and has two nice pockets. Aprons are cool.
If you'd like one let me know.
This one is in light linen. It can be made in various weights, fabrics. Xx.
