In love with the lustre

(Still) feeling too lethargic and woolly-headed from my cold to get out and do much, I am amusing myself with simple projects — like up-cycling kimono sashes (obi).

The latest cushion was made entirely from the silk in the sash itself and required very little sewing.

I love these fabrics; the beautiful colours and designs, and the wonderful lustre of the silk fibres.

    • Thank you so much. I did look at the economics of selling some of my stuff a while ago. Living in New Zealand, a lot of materials are quite expensive and then trying to ship them to anywhere else is ridiculously expensive. It’s not a great business model sadly 😦

  1. We went to the doctor yesterday to try and find out why we are both so woolly headed too. I was pretty simple to diagnose: I’m pretty seriously anemic. What is worrying me is WHY I’m so anemic. I eat all the right food. Maybe not enough Vitamin C. Garry, on the other hand, needs a heart checkup. Funny how we have the same symptoms for entirely different reasons.

  2. So sorry you’re still feeling wooly headed, Su. I admire how you can still be so creative – when I’m under the weather I usually curl up and hide. πŸ˜‰ The cushions are awesome – so bright and colourful, perfect for spring/ summer! Xxxxxx

    • Thank you so much.
      I had planned to do much more, and more detailed stuff, but cushions were easy and don’t involve complex shapes or tailoring. The summer dress I stared is languishing because I can’t quite get the fit right. πŸ™
