I love to dye fabric, make thread pictures and quilt. I live in the Yukon on an acreage with my husband, 2 dogs and 34 fish. It's the 'good' life.

Flowers in the Yard (and This and That)

I had some really nice flowers come up this year.  Since I don’t know much about flowers, I am just going to post some nice shots..

My garden is doing terrific this year. We have been eating lettuce, radishes, carrots, broccolli, cherry tomatoes and cauliflower—so everything I planted is coming up. Yah!

And I was getting my Nova Scotia trip pictures together and so am sharing a picture of me! Hi!!  This was at Peggy’s Cove. Hubby and I said we could easily live in NS and will go back again..

I am a messy painter, so I decided to make myself a Bog Jacket. The link provided has a nice picture, so if you can sew, you will get it from this:


So here is mine.


It is still wet, but you can sort of see the trees that I started.


Here it is dry. Now I have to hem it and fix the collar. I admit I have never made anything to wear and it fits funny, but its for dyeing. No-one else will ever see it. (Now watch me forget and wear it out grocery shopping or something).

  1. Nice job! You realized though that you'll get it covered with dye and the trees will disappear...

  2. Yah, thats what Mike said. But I made it to dye in. Now what? :-)
