Spring and dusty roads

Every year the same from Mars to June. I have a hard time breathing out doors due to winter mould, pollen  and road dust. I have been walking outdoors with dust masks in springtime for years but suddenly the world changed  and not just heavy duty dust masks are sold but all types of  protective face masks. So this is my last one and spring has just begun. The dust mask above pinches my nose and does not fit well.

Hmm what to do?

Why not sew one or two.
I might have a pattern I can use somewhere in my mask pattern box.



Easy unpicking

Silent mode on a camera is a good thing

Hubbie took these photos when I was fitting each veil/chocolate paper stripe separately to the foundation and sewing them down with reflex thread with my hook needle.

Torkel har tagit många fina ögonblicksbilder från ateljén när jag sydde Sweet Dreams.

Jag gillar verkligen hans bilder och kommer därför att lägga upp ett urval av bilderna på bloggen.

Many many cups

Thank you AnnaLena, I could not have done this without your help getting dress.
Wearing a paper coffee cup and stays made from chocolate paper is the best feeling ever.

It makes me squeal with laughter.
