In and around my sewing, I seem to spend a good bit of happy time just preparing. Today is one of those peaceful, puttering days.
A pair of husband's torn jeans pulled from the trash provide some gorgeous resist patterns. I'm not sure how I'll use these pieces yet, but they are so pretty, I think.
The pocket areas are my favorite but the back yoke and waistband also provide interesting possibilities.
I also like to have a few dye pots around the house. Husband is so very patient with these sometimes stinky endeavors. Here is one that carries on continuously - a small copper pot for my discarded tea bags. It contains some squares of cotton sateen.
