I'm getting along with my goal to sew my own clothes. They are both made of some organic cotton sweat shirt fabric, stitched and dyed in my new indigo vat.
When I opened the stitches I spontaneously thought of tatoos. Shibori as a shirt tatoo - I like that.
And more roses from the garden. Mme Louise Odier is about done for now. She tends to bloom a second time later. But the Veilchenblau, Raubritter, Albertine, Alexandre Girault and my dearest Paul's Himalayan Musk are in full bloom now. O I love May and June.
Roses are my weakness. I love the old English Roses and I stuffed too many into my little garden. Especially since a lot of them are ramblers. Never a good idea. But in May and June I simply love them.
I'm not really into flowers or flower arrangements. My roses live a life on their own, I just occasionally trim them so that they don't overtake my garden or the neighbour's. Funny thing is when I was in Japan, part of our workshop was doing Ikebana. Everything is connected in Japanese art. As is flower arrangement. I felt a bit weird but in the end it was fun. Moving out of my comfort zone ;o)
The little tits and the sparrows are almost grown now. Only a few days ago their parents were still feeding them on my balcony but now they are all on their own here dining.
