We are having more snowfall after a glorious start of spring. It was warm enough to eat ice cream on the street - and now the world is white again.
To combat the spring-turned-winter blues, I went purple. A strong purple is something I usually wear in summer and fall when I am tanned and can take a strong color. But it just felt right today.
I paired a strong purple s/s shirt with a grey cardigan sweater that I have loved to pieces. I bought it, gosh, over 10 years ago and cannot part with it. It is cashmere (now that's a valid reason, no?), it is styled like a workshirt with collar and cuffs and a rounded hem.
It was on my "to-do or loose" list for ages. Cut up? - no. Remake? -no. Loose? - no no.
Instead I needle felted a circles design on it to cover all the big and small holes. I have a lot of materials so coming up with suitable felt wool colors was not a problem. it took ages to finish, but I am so pleased with it.
Necklace close-up. It's a Midcentury Modern piece from Finland. I have a faible for MidMod jewelry (among other things...)
