today...


Today started out with a weekly chore, shaking out our stack of shikibutons and flipping them over. Our bed takes a bit of work each week, often I think we both wonder why we chose this traditional Japanese style bed. One thing I am happy about, is the simplicity of it and the 100% organic cotton/local wool used to make our stack of shikibutons. I splurged and bought a set of new organic cotton sheets last week, so after a bit of shaking and weird maneuvering our bed was back together and looking better then ever. My day then began... 
My sweet friend Mali sent me a little package with the boat print I ordered from her Etsy shop last week. It arrived last night and I could not stop admiring all the pretty illustrations she sent. If you are looking for some new awesome prints to put on your wall then check out her shop. Her "little lost zine" is amazing, I wanna rip out each page and pin it to my wall. A highlight of my week! 
 and then my new organic cotton/hemp striped fabric arrived! It is such a lovely material. I want to make a million dresses and shirts out of it. But first a scarf is in order. It inspired me to write down all my thoughts on my summer 2013 collection. Though I am slowly realizing that my body might not have the energy to do a whole new collection. I have about 6 weeks left of serious work before I think my body will say enough. But hopefully I can get a few new designs done and colors out and ready before July comes. Well off to bed I go and still the sky is bright, such a pretty time of year.
