You know I favor blue flowers!!
Spirea a shrub that grows 6' tall here and spreads
Fireweed gets 6' tall and grows wild all over Alaska, huge meadows of it can be seen around Homer. It's quite edible and the moose like it for the sweet magenta flowers.
My blue shrimp plant I grew from seeds off Amazon.com for my all blue garden. I'm really loving this unusual looking annual.
My latest quick sew is a cute 100% cotton gathered skirt. I finished this Sunday and have cut out a chambray blouse to go with it. (Plan on wearing red shoes) I sew the zipper in by hand as well as the hem and waist band on the skirt inside. Below is the shirt, my favorite pattern!
Report on my aqua blue velvet vintage dress. It's still hanging around in my craft room on the model. I've put a zipper in and taken it out, didn't work with the thin velvet, then tried button holes in velvet samples, really didn't work squirmed all over the place, now what? I'm using the covered buttons I made over SNAPS! I have only one done on the bottom so far but this has to work as it's my last option.
Thanks for dropping in I always so much appreciate reading each of your comments.
