I have been given an edict.
The tree must come down today.
I know one person who leaves her Christmas tree up all year.
Saves a bit of work, but I don't know if I could trust myself not
to eat fruit mince tarts and chocolates all year either.
That tree is definitely a trigger for all sorts.
I will be wrestling mine down today.
Meanwhile, in retrospective frippery I want to tell you about
a couple of Frida inspired headpieces.
Late last year I had the fun of making a couple of Frida Kahlo inspired headpieces
for A, who was going to luncheon.
I worked with two fabric characteristics, one including using the bias (or stretch) of the woven grain.
That is the lovely rolled edge and ease you get when you cut fabric on the 45 degree angle.
The curves are lovely.
I arranged the fleurs in a little bunch and added turquoise leaves.
The second headpiece used heat to curl and twist cut fabric petals.
What are you up to?
How are you skirting around your chores?
