I've done lots of other art work, as well, but not planning to show all of it here. I've also been getting into sewing with linen, lately, and I am really enjoying that process. The fabric is a joy to work with and I'm working on a wardrobe of Mori-style clothes. I'm not strict in the sense of it all having to be dark, or all-natural fabrics, though I do prefer that. I'm making some crinkle gauze, batiked print skirts and now I'm working on recycling an old men's shirt into something feminine and lovely to go with them. I also had to make a linen half slip to wear under the crinkle gauze skirts for some more opacity, but still keeping the breezy cool feel. I wasn't able to find the right size half slip locally and I didn't really want nylon for summer anyway. The linen is perfect for this!
I have learned how to "hemstitch" and have done 7 lovely linen handkerchiefs using this heirloom technique. I haven't photo'd any of these linen projects yet, but will get to that soon and do a separate post for them. BTW, I get almost all of my linen from www.fabric-store.com. I have been totally pleased with the consistent quality of their fabrics. They have something on sale nearly every day and I signed up for emails, so when what I like is on sale, that's when I buy. Occasionally I can find some 100% linen or a nice linen-cotton mix at my local Hancocks and that has been a good buy, also. I do not buy the linen/acrylic blend; it just isn't appropriate for what I'm doing at this time. 'Bye for now....keep enjoying the summer!
