March 14, 2014


One of my favourite things in the world is to get out to a coffee shop with my journal, a book - and for the first time ever, a sketchpad! It's such a treat to just while away an hour or two refilling my well! I'm so glad I got some of that time yesterday.


After many, many years of awesomeness it was time for my red pants to find a new life.  It was a bit weird to cut them up into patches and rags, but considering they looked like they just survived the piranha scene from The Toy, I knew it was time. I'm keeping the stripes though. They will end up on one project or another.

That's such a good way to think about it, Shannon - giving something a new life. I wonder what projects those stripes will end up in!

Suzie Ridler said...

How wonderful you could go out and enjoy the day like that Jamie!

Shannon, oh that is hard but I guess it is time. Love that you are saving the stripes.

No update from me. I was heavily medicated and on the couch resting my back yesterday. Boring!

I'm glad you got some rest, Suzie. I bet you and your body really needed it. Sending you love and a cuppa tea. ((hugs))

Way to go on sketchbooking it up while out journalling Jamie, that's an awesome first :)

I wonder where the stripes will turn up. I should have left more seam allowance for a new home for them, but ... there was only so much material left. I totally loved them as pants, but they were really done in that incarnation. I hope they turn into new thing(s) that are more happy memories.
