We've been having so many thunder showers this week. It's been lovely! The weather's been perfect for sewing days and drawing. The dresses are really coming along, which makes us want to work like fiends to see them complete!
We've been drawing all of our own designs instead of using templates or transfers - a lot of work, but so much fun!
Little works of art
Mutti brought these pull ties back from Vietnam, and I absolutely love them! I'm not exactly sure what material they are made of (wood??), but the texture is so smooth. All of the different colors and pieces are inlaid. So beautiful! We've tied them to our lamps as pulleys - perfect accent to spruce up an ordinary light.
The orchids are really thriving in the house - our first attempt at growing them. I'd say they are thriving! The colours always intrigue me; I could stare at them for hours.
