ochre stars


tea and cookie

• reinventing an old pair of jeans with some unfortunate holes into something new. heavily inspired by traditional japanese boro fabrics.
• finishing up some custom orders, including a "shore fragments" ochre stars piece.
• thought several times about a walk to see the wild waves at the seashore, but each time the wind and rain outside made the warm house seem that much more inviting.
• instead, melted chocolate to make a modified (read: less sugar, added whole wheat, walnuts, ground flax & hemp seeds) version of these chocolate espresso cookies
• and enjoyed those cookies with a warm mug of tea.
• looking forward to going out to dinner with friends in a little bit, to celebrate A's 30th birthday (tomorrow). mmmmm, fresh margaritas and mexican tastiness.
• unfortunately, A has to work all day on his birthday, so I may head to my parents' to bake traditional danish brunkager with my mom.
• then back home for an evening outing to the banff film festival world tour.

what are you up to?

tending to a sick kitty cat (edgar), decorating the porch with freshly foraged greens and berries, thinking about making christmas cards and working on some handmade gifts.

Hmm, Saturday? Swimming lessons, lip balm making followed by a nice dinner out. Love the mending for your jeans, k. I have a pair of jeans with both knees missing but I love those jeans. I think I need to learn how to patch jeans. Wish I could make them look as pretty as yours. :0)

Sounds like you had a fab Saturday. I love the repair you did on your jeans!

Love your jeans! I've done something similar to my little ones jeans (which needs mending all the time) - it's just so darn hard on the fingers. I end up bleeding from all fingertips.
