Busho Ikebana is a tiny zine, but by far my favorite; it means 'Lazy school of Ikebana'

The other sleeve



















The sedum in July 2011, in a very neglected state in April 2012, in a way too big container last summer and finally, today in a new jar in the best of all possible worlds, to quote Leibniz words :^)
Goodnight & Sweet Dreams!

landscape




















 I was fixing the sleeves of an old jacket today, at least one sleeve, I kept the other one for tomorrow :) I had a look for the technique at my Thérèse de Dillmont book (my bible:) and they call it 'Swiss darning'; in the example above you can see how to fix a hole in a knitted cloth, which was fortunately not the case with me, I only had to reinforce the stitches.
Tomorrow I will use more shades of brown to make the darning look a bit like a landscape.
an awesome technique to repair socks.

Found a book about camouflage in the thrift some time ago; the creature on the bottom pic is a Texas horned lizard.
the one on the front is a frog; cool :)
































I'm hooked on Milk Oolong lately.
