everyday production

Fresh eggs – 2 dozen from 2 days, prettiest colors ever.

(These are still covered in bloom (unwashed) so I was told I didn’t NEED to refrigerate them right away ..of course I did, because are you f-ing crazy!)

Blueberry buckle – 1½ pints berries in a 6 x 9 casserole.

(Ok-ish blueberries were made 100x better with the addition of sugar and a buttery scone like cobble top.)

Natural dyed wool – 20 avocado skins to 1lb fiber.

(I keep a bag in the freezer for collecting skins until I have enough to dye with, be sure to give them a good scrub to remove any left behind flesh prior to storing, it will save you a lot of avocado scum headache when you heat the dye pot! You can save and use the avocado seed/stones in the same way.)

Cast on and a candy pouch – Avocado wool, 6 stitch markers & 1 chocolate bar.

(You can purchase iron on vinyl in craft stores and online, it allows you to turn most anything (like candy wrappers) into a sturdy sewable material! You will need a teflon foot for your machine so it can glide across the vinyl surface. Sewing Hack #1: Don’t have a teflon foot? A strip of matte “scotch” tape on the underside of your regular presser foot will work in a pinch.)

Pink grapefruit – Citrus fruit of choice.

(Fresh, no sugar, peel, skin, eat.)

Wood needles & wooden yarn, another Ranunculus cast on, this one in lacy eco friendly tencel. The Lykke Driftwoods are giving this slippery knit just enough enjoyable drag.

Iced coffee, always.

Swedish wooden shoes, more specifically: Cola brown Audubon Clogs by Troentorp.

Floral sundress made from a thrifted sheet. I left the sweet piped hem on the bottom and now I’m not entirely sure if this has just enough Half Pint (Laura Ingalls) potato sack cuteness or if it’s coming off as an outdated “modest” maternity look?

(p.s I’m not pregnant)

Kiki say, it’s so hot out, all we can do is sit inside and keep watch on the neighborhood.
