Sheets were hanging out today. Smell so good. Two bases pinned and ready to baste. I think I can do this

i have one in my know, around here people frown on clotheslines? too bad, it is a great way to view cloth on a regular basis. i have one outside too.
you know, my grandmother wove her sheets. they were stitched together from narrow strips of cloth.

Simplicity at it's best,love it. I thought datura were white? Camera? or they come in blue? Happy belated solstice. Great photo of flower as well as this line. :)

helen...the Anonymous was the comment just before you...that's
your comment says Helen, but there
is no comment? other than to say
you are not anon?????

Helen said...

No ,that was my comment, it's exactly what I wrote, but it posted as anonymous,I must have clicked the wrong button I'm known to do that, but it is my comment. any way.... Are Datura white? Is the camera making it blue? Just curious, because it sure is beautiful.

Clothes hanging on the line, dancing in the breeze and happy memories of time spent with my Mama. She would teach just how to place the pins on clothing, sometimes wanting all like colored items to be together which made hanging the wash, a fun game. But then would come the lessons in ironing, those I did not like.

Speaking of Anonymous,this is Marti, who comments using Anonymous. I am one of grace's non-sewing friends, although I did take a stab at it this past weekend. I don't have a google account or blog and don't know what the other identities, openid,name/url actually mean so when I comment on grace's blog it will say Anonymous but I always sign my name Marti and grace responds back to me as Marti/Anon. Now either this has helped when you see Anonymous or thoroughly confused everyone...!

helen ~ datura ARE white, but
some, small datura are tinged in

i don't know why the bloom always
appears this blue color when
photographed at night, which is
always when it opens and is in
full glory. used the flash, but
even if i don't, there is the same
blueish white? i think it's the
magic. maybe because it is so
incredibly intense....standing
out so in a very singlular manner
from all the rest around
really is stunning. it is an
hallucinogenic so what ever that is
might also come into play????
glad we got the Anon worked out.

reminds me of my old clothesline... we seem to have the same clothes :)

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

twhich aye...
you made me laugh and also, it
doesn't surprise me that we seem
to have the same clothes...
maybe we are simultaneous selves.
