This lovely was found on itzy and if you are not crazy and thinking you want to make a patchwork skirt, then this lady and others will custom make one for you 🙂

I love the type of this one but I am also going to sew in bells so that I sing as I walk, I have not yet figured out the colors yet but at least three or more main colors, and then like this one, I will need to decide on pattern type.

But before I am allowed to make this I have a gift given to me of some lovely material that I need to make into something and do a blog post on it..

On this very cold bitter Monday, its nice to think about the warmer spring and fall days.. how is it in your neck of the woods, are you deep in the cold and snow, or more mild temps, or are you in a area that is already growing and planting in your garden..

Sadly my cats took out my plastic and my baby plant starts all went…….. ah.. to cold and wilted and curled in on themselves in a pout.. we will see I can help them recover or if they are just a loss.

I might just have to wait for this very cold snap to give over before starting things this year.. so be it

    I love the “Gypsy Skirt”. Had one in my younger days all in blue prints. I have a book that came out of Berkley, California in the 70’s called “Native Funk & Flash”. Laurel Burch was part of this creative group and the creative clothing was so beautiful. Growing up in the Sierra Nevada’s I got to rub elbows with some of these folks and they were my early inspiration to grow organically, learn to bake bread and seek a spiritual life. Here’s a link to some of the pictures: http://knittingiris.typepad.com/knitting_iris/2008/05/native-funk-and.html
