I've mended the pajama pants a few times already. By now they fall into the category of boro, which means a mended and patched raggedy textile. Another area just gave way so I patched it with more cloth from Herm, a clothmate gone to the great beyond.
The rich brew in the dye-pot is from red maple leaves that dried up before I had a chance to make dye-bundles. I had hoped to experiment with Kathy's very successful method here but ended up with just one silk bundle using the dried leaves. It snowed a few inches last night with more on the way -- I don't know what happens to red leaves in the snow, but yellow ones seem to lose their color. I do hope I get another chance!
Every October we make an altar in memory of deceased loved ones for our Day of the Dead family gathering. The magnifying glass was my grandparents' whose photo is magnified (circa WWII).
Thanks for coming by and happy weekending ahead. xxx
