Small things

Following my dream the other night about running away to the Amazon to stop illegal logging I happened upon a rather relevant article in the Guardian. For Blog action day I just thought I’d let you know my little piece I do for the environment – and it is small but it does add up – is that when I’m out shopping I don’t use those little plastic bags to put my fruit and veg in. I just pile them in all loosely into the basket and sort them at the weighing station – and then all loose again into the calico shopper.


On the home front I’ve made more clothes for Astrid – a super cute halter-neck top, pajama pants, more skirts and some jeans on the way. I am supposed to be working so I don’t have time to take photos. Although here are a couple of gratuitous Liberty print shots from the parcel that arrived yesterday. I really just can’t stop sewing though. I am having far too much fun.

    ooh, they’re so pretty. i can’t wait to see more clothes you’ve been making too.
    i do the loose-veges in my basket thing too. i did see online somewhere, that a woman was making sheer see-through cloth bags for that very purpose- i thought that was quite a good idea.

    I do the same thing, it doesn’t make sense to put them in bags and then another bag.
