How to be sustainable

 

  1. Have friends who find old mannequins at the dump (2 found so far).
  2. Discover some fabric in a local charity shop.
  3. Eco dye some vintage silk.
  4. Then use a vintage pattern for the skirt and a minimal waste pattern (Shape Shape 2) for the vest!

I seem to have a thing about circles this year!

 
Slow stitching the last of 4 textile scrolls. Eco dyed vintage wool blanket and linen or cotton; hand stitched. 

Why are we selling my gallery/studio?

 
Two reasons: 1) So I can be more flexible with my arts business (which is not for sale); and 2) So we can finish our house. We don’t owe anyone for anything and we want to keep it that way! Husband Ian has done most of the building so far by himself in his ‘spare’ time, except for concreting and some of the roof. And yes, we do have planning approval for a studio cabin!
