#tiledmyowndamnfloor #sheetrockedthedamnwalls #plumbedmyowndamnsinkandtoilettoo toilet & wall tiles from the reuse center (colored tiles leftovers from another project) ; sink from previous incarnation of bathroom. Replaced the single flush mechanism with a dual flush. Did I mention it does not smell like moldy rotting wood any longer?

Replacing a zip in a friend’s wedding dress. R’s grandmother made it for her 14 years ago, and R wears it out on the town to celebrate her anniversary every year. Grandma was a no-nonsense seamstress and getting this broken zipper out is taking longer than resetting it will. We’re replacing the white zip with one that matches R’s eyes, a green-blue color. I’m enjoying looking at the little tricks the woman who sewed this dress used to make sure it would survive all the dancing and hugging. Hoping the replacement sees it through another 14 or so.

The kids walked out today. So proud of them.

Today, five completely random men asked me if I needed help finding something in the hardware store. One of them went so far as to say “Well, you’re missing your opportunity to ask for help because I am finished so I am leaving.” ... I came home, unloaded the sheet rock, and grouted my own damn floor. Happy international women’s day, y’all. Own your skills. 😘

Detail, dispersion (2018). Thanks to my mom for the dandelion idea— genius. ———————————————————————
Thrifted sheets, dyed with madder- weld - indigo in the RYB experiment of last year. These are the scraps left after documentation. #useitup #upcycling #naturaldye #quilt
