garden update

We survived the flood last weekend pretty well and have no damage to report – we’re lucky! Many others in our town have flooded basements and yards and the local park system got completely flooded, as did several buildings at the University. I was slightly worried that we’d have damage in the gardens, but we fared quite well. A few things are droopier than they were before, but I’ve used some small wrought iron garden fencing bits that were left by the previous owner to prop them up, which is working fine. Here’s a quick update (filmed and edited on my iPod – pretty decent for the first try at that!):

Spring Showers and Spring Flowers Blythe Swap

This was such a fun swap to put together! My partner and I figured out quickly that we both like the Mori Girl style and that really informed my process for making things. I got so excited about it! I wrote a few new patterns for knitted items (see yesterday’s freebie for one!) and sewed a bunch. Here’s a quick look at the things I sent:

And the awesome package I received:

Blythe three dress giveaway!

Happy new year! I’ve been attempting to spend more time doing things other than the internet, hence the lack of posts. I’m not giving up on blogging – far from it! – but am trying to focus on mostly on making things and taking political action. I’m still planning to make time for blogging but I am also in winter hibernation mode, so posts will probably be more sporadic at least for a bit.

So, back to making things! I made these three dresses for Blythe and would love to give them away to other Blythe folks. Head over to YouTube and comment there to be entered to win. I’ll pick a winner on Friday January 13th so hurry on over!
