Monday Musings

Work on the boro jacket continues.  Patch after patch.  No one would recognize Fee's shirt now that the collar and cuffs have been removed, sleeves shortened, neckline altered, and length cut off.
I wish I'd had more blue scraps.  It began to be a bit of a problem finding a way to keep from repeating the same fabrics too close to each other.  Still not finished, but with the front all patched, I can get a better idea of how it will look.

The milkweed is producing flowers again.  Just when I thought they were completely through for the summer and collected seeds for next year, more buds arrived.

Scattered crepe myrtle "confetti" nestle in shrubs and ground cover; makes it look as if the shrubs and ground cover are blooming.   I've long neglected some serious trimming of the ground cover which will soon take over the patio, if I don't do something about it.

Fee and I had planned to take a short trip this month, but as often happens, work has interfered.  We will be heading to Baton Rouge later this month for Max's birthday, and hopefully, we can schedule a little side venture at that time.

The white on white has received no attention in quite some time.  Maybe when (and if) I finish the jeogori style boro jacket, I will return to the white on white.

Have a good week!


  1. I really like the cut of the boro jacket. I imagine it to be a bit like a puzzle to fit all the fabrics in. Have a great visit to Baton Rouge.

  2. Valerie - Thanks! :) I have to be sure to watch which little squares I put where, but other than that, it is pretty mindless.

  3. I have a plethora of blue batiks, I'd be glad to send you some pieces.

  4. Rian - Wow! Thanks so much for the offer, Rian! I'm almost finished now, but I would have loved more blues, especially batiks. Next time, I'll remember to post earlier about a need. Thanks so much for the offer!

  5. I was going to offer an envelope of blues too! The jacket looks great :) I hope you'll model it when you're all done!

  6. Love the jacket, Jenclair. I wish I'd know about your needing blue....that the largest pile in my stash. Please let me know if you need some. They could be there in just a day or two.

  7. Nancy - :) I don't know why I didn't request help with the blues! I won't hesitate next time! Thanks, Nancy.

    Mary - Another kind offer! If I'd thought of it in time, I could have a huge stash of blues. I'm so close to finishing now, but I really appreciate the kind offer!

  8. I have lots of blues, too. I would have gladly shared! Love how your jacket is turning out!


Good to hear from you!
