friday: can you feel the heat & humidity through the window?

friday: can you feel the heat & humidity through the window?

Since last week was an assortment of activities, I’m framing it mentally with Natalie’s Sunday Sevens.

Frame. v.t. 1.  To fit or prepare and unite several parts in a regular structure or entire thing…

After mooching through my photo mind palace for this week’s WPC (over t’other blog) I decided it was time to iron a skirt & blouse that had hung un-ironed all week.

You know how your mind wanders whilst ironing. As I’d just been thinking “frame,” it got applied to the ironing.

  • The yellow blouse had been a charity shop men’s shirt I liberated circa 2013.
  • The skirt & capelet fabric was purchased in Chicago and originally made into culottes, but fabric was too stiff for the style and so it didn’t get worn.
  • Then it got made into a straight skirt, and worn much more than the culottes.
  • The capelet, of leftover fabric from the culottes, was a test.

The shirt’s too long to be worn as styled with the capelet at left (proportions are off), but isn’t quite so off with a solid RTW blouse instead (top, right) Yes, that yellow men’s shirt is still underneath.

 Thanks to J for photos above!

  • Plastic & glass bangles thrifted around chicago (2010-13)
  • Earrings from california arts fair (ca. 1990’s)
  • Sandals by Clarks
  • Hat still in use!

framed! my 1st multi-colour work

And an extra photo just because I’m chuffed to have done some crocheting in colour.

Time for Sunday Sevens again, as dreamed up by Natalie of Threads and Bobbins. Why not join in? Guidelines are extremely flexible. 😉

Submitted for the WordPress Photo Challenge.

    I only like ironing outside in the sunshine, in my bikini (we’re not ever looked, thank goodness!!) but if it’s that warm I’ll be at cricket or golf, hence I don’t do much ironing! Lovely pics Del 😀 xx

      Thank you, Ali, for such an enviable option! Afraid this is a very visible area ~ beyond the air con units at ground level & across the side walks & road is a long 3-storey building with porches & lots of windows. 😦 And probably not a cricket field for miles and miles. 😢

      Thanks, Jen. If it’s not too hot, I also enjoy ironing, so we’re weirdos together. 😉 It’s the instant gratification, seeing wrinkles vanish immediately. Now if that would only happen a few other places…
      Don’t know what it is with that hat… almost binned it a couple years ago. 😲
