dark days

Posted on: 12.1.13



Been doing some sewing during the bleak weather this week. I made this little smock out of a muji cashmere scarf.
Is it me, or are the days about 30 mins long? I literally just have lunch and its dark, then time to go to bed again...I need to get me one of those SAD lamp things...

Anyways, one benefit from homemade clothes is that you can match your dress to your...


lampshade.

  5. You are so right. The days are over before they have started. Good time to catch up on projects around the home though. Nao has inspired me since my wife put me on to this blog. Could do with his precision though. Beautiful lampshade by the way

    So pretty and chic! I wish I had a speck of your creativity. Clearly the dark days have not diminished your brilliance!

  10. Not long now and you will be taking Pehr for beautiful spring walks, with blossom and blue sky for her to look at. Love the repurposed Muji.

  11. I just have to write and say how much I enjoy your blog. I can't even remember how I began coming here, but I just find it peaceful to "stop by" once in a while. If I could get away from work when my husband comes to Britain on business (he'll be near Hempstead next weekend) I wold see if we could meet up for tea. Ah, well. Keep writing; that will have to suffice!

  15. Oh my goodness Artemis, this is one of the most beautiful baby tops I have ever seen! Love it! Would you consider making any to sell? I'd love one :)

    P.S I know you always say you are not a perfect sewer but I REALLY can't sew and I think your sewn items are perfect just as they are.

  16. I love the use of Liberty print as little touches for clothes! Handmade clothes are so much nicer :-)
