Scrap Happy October

October 14, 2021

well, I’m still here

the learning curve has been steep and I’m fed up wasting so much valuable weaving time

the weather has changed dramatically – the best part of that is the forest fires are finally out

 Rosie was starting to shiver in her sun dress

she choose a scrap of hand woven, hand spun silk fabric from 20+ years ago to make a jacket

I still wear a top  made from the fabric so now we are twins

she was happy to pose in the rain

hand stitched with a crocheted finish and the perfect buttons from the stash

with a scarf knitted from thrums – the short lengths determined the stripe widths

 now she is ready for winter

wow! Rosie is a fashionista


Today we are also welcoming Esther to the group. She is a wonderfully talented quilter and makes the most beautiful pieces, so her blog is really worth a visit.

    Darling! Love the little sweater and scarf for the bear.

      Bear – it is fun to make up stories and gives me a break from worrying about what’s going on in the world. Bears don’t need anything more than love.

        True that. Being a Bear myself I can attest to that. 🙂 ❤ Oddly enough, I don't own a single stuffed one. I should remedy that if I can find one.

        Bear – make one, you will be surprised at how they develop a personality.

    Rosie looks so snug in that outfit! I love the idea of her as an eco-warrior too.

      Sue – we need all the eco-warriors we can get. Every year,in B.C., several bears are euthanized because they become habituated to human food. We are asked to store and dispose of our garbage safely, not to feed the animals and still people don’t listen, Bears are known to come down out of the mountains and roam city neighbourhoods. So sad. I would love for Rosie, the teddy bear, to teach a lesson.

        Humans can be very selfish and thoughtless. It saddens me but all we can do is be an example and educate those who will listen. Keep going Rosie!

        Sue – Rosie is a fighter, don’t know if she will hibernate this winter.

        I hope not – she sounds like a kindred spirit and possibly your favourite?


      • October 17, 2021 1:23 pm

        Sue – well I don’t think these bears will hibernate – I might! Rosie gets attention because she is the only girl and it is more fun to make girlie things, even if she is a bit of a tomboy.

    My, what a stylish outfit… you’d never guess they were scraps.

    Not just a fashionista, but a sustainable, ecologically-responsible icon! I love that soft blue-grey colour.

      Kate – Rosie will be thrilled to know she is an ecological warrior. Next she’ll be demanding hiking boots and a backpack!

    Twins! I love both your jackets and the Thrums scarf! And yes thankfully the fires are out at last.

      Kjerstin – lots more thrums where they came from, if you ever want some for the Hittys let me know.
