MISC. SIX

Hibiscus

I waited all summer for my hibiscus plant to bloom and finally it did! Next year I’m going to make sure I plant more flowers. I should start this fall by planting some bulbs, which I say I’m going to do every year but never do.

Today is the official start of fall. My mind seems to be preoccupied these days with thoughts of making fall-appropriate clothing and getting mentally prepared for holiday gift making. Is it too soon?

  • i must be thinking about fall. i’m sewing black clothing and wanting black shoes. like these.
  • you can never have enough terrariums. it might be time for me to make another!
  • i’ve been thinking a lot about making a skirt with a zipper down the front… this one has two!
  • i want to make mini pies shaped like apples!
  • clever becky is sharing her security envelope project with the world in fabric form
  • coolest pockets i’ve seen – navy blue draped pocket dress (with pink cardigan!)
  • lovely design has reprinted her beautiful conifers & beautiful leaves posters! i can complete my set now.
  • how a sewing machine works. very enlightening animation.
  • i miss fashion week. Karen Walker‘s S/S 2010 collection is full of fun prints.
  • loving the cape, but those shoes!!! WOW.
  • skirt inspiration in blue

  • What an inspiring list of things to dream about and such beautiful photos. And yes – I have also started to ponder holiday gifting – last year’s trend was ties and snap coin purses – what will this year bring?

  • Oh, that zipper skirt is too cute. I’m wearing a skirt with a zipper at the moment, but it’s not nearly as cute! Makes me wish I were better at drafting patterns (although maybe it’s not so hard to make a skirt…). Love these lists!

  • I love the last picture! It’s so beautiful!

  • Oooh – thanks for the link love! If you decide to get them, let me know. I’ve been too chicken to take on their somewhat dodgy e-commerce so far!

  • Hibiscus always reminds me of Barbados. Both my Auntys and my Granny use it as hedges, if you can believe it! Gorgeous deep shiny green “fences” with huge pops of colour everywhere. A good description of Barbados itself really.

    Also: bunny=super cute.

    Finally: pompoms=flowers!
