Today's thrifting score: an awesome cropped (and well-loved) Chinese jacket. My scissors are ready to claim this one. It will be fun to give it new life in another form #thriftedfabric

Traction on a something? I had an hour of a thunderstorm-induced power outage to empty my head and launch into this piece. #indigo

Perfectly imperfect. I am late getting my garden in this year, but was able to blitz the planters and beds today. Marigolds are my favourite annuals. #marigold #betterlatethannever

My youngest requested a 'fish stuffy' for his 4th birthday. Luckily I have had this project poised for months. This whitefish is made of an over dyed commercial print and a felted cashmere sweater. The dorsal fin might need a little trimming but otherwise it's a big hit. #handdyed #handmadetoys #trexphotobomb Edit: he calls this his Fish Teddy now πŸ’™

↗️ While I sometimes wish we had more soil here, living in and being from Canadian Shield country is a huge inspiration. #lovetheserocks #alwayslookingdown #vein
