in time of daffodils(who know
the goal of living is to grow)
forgetting why,remember how

in time of lilacs who proclaim
the aim of waking is to dream,
remember so(forgetting seem)

in time of roses(who amaze
our now and here with paradise)
forgetting if,remember yes

in time of all sweet things beyond
whatever mind may comprehend,
remember seek(forgetting find)

and in a mystery to be
(when time from time shall set us free)
forgetting me,remember me


(what a wanky blog title)

Anyway I mostly want to say that, Christina is blogging again! So get your skates on and read: In and Out of Season

These are the blogs I love the most. The little insights, a little creativity, a little bit of someone. I only hope to find the energy to put some more of that back into this place.

Blogging Life

This is a vat of tea. If there was ever any question what a vat was.

I have not mentioned before how much I like the remote control I have for the D90. It feeds my narcissistic soul. And one day I’ll stop applying ‘vintage’ type effects to my photos. I promise.

Life Photography

I don’t know what to say.

These are utterly amazing and entirely moving.


So… I redeemed somewhat the potato sack that eventuated from the first run. It was at the start too big. And now looking at the pattern I’m not super happy with the choice. I wanted a more scooped neckline with back to match – more flattering. Speaking of which the belt bit is NOT flattering at all (yes this photo disguises a bit, looks passable here) it needs to be narrower and unfortunately this colour was the only contrasting colour I had – which I originally bought NOT for a belt at all but from some decorative thing at the front. AND… the bits around the sleeves that are kind of odd – well they are to disguise the actual sleeves that are TOO WIDE. I skipped the interfacing because I hadn’t bought any and the inside of the sleeves in the pattern was a mystery so I made it up – or followed as closely as I could.

So, it does all look a bit handmade, but it is wearable. Whether I will wear it is to be seen.

I did learn how to do buttons & buttonholes with my sewing machine and I did get back in the zone of how to read a pattern. And. It was fun.
