2012 is here

So the process of change begins. Today I deleted 635 images from my camera so that it doesn't take an age to download the three recent ones. I don't know how it gets to that point where you just keep them on the camera even after you downloaded them but there you go, I don't think I'm alone. In the final week of 2011 I made inroads into making multiples of items. It is clear that I can't continue the making 1-3 at a time method of making. It's not time efficient, it doesn't mean that I'll be churning out carbon copies of the same thing it just means I will have an enormous pile of previously cut fabric to draw from. One of the minor setbacks of eco cycling is that if you take a jacket and use the fabric from it, you have to take it apart first which takes time as does selecting the jacket in the first place. I'm very picky ! It's taken some time to build up my stash. These are some newest additions, I'm very fortunate that heavyweight wool jackets are not in high demand in these parts. It's more of a sweats or beachwear community to which I am also a victim. I blame it on the dogs all that walking, you have to wear trainers and with wool trousers that would not be a good look.
This skirt has gorgeous green specks and a lovely texture.
This jacket is a mint green and brown tweed or herringbone I always confuse the two.
Another lucky find of browns, blues and yellow.
In the pipeline are some wristlet purses once I figure out how to get the wristbit onto the purse, some upcycled surf notebooks again, once I learn how to use my bookbinding machine and a bunch of other stuff. Let's see how long it is before they surface on the blog. Feel free to prod me with a reminder if it seems to be taking a while.
