- Been drawing my dad's gloves. Noticing the shape of our collective hands that the gloves have taken on and how much the wrinkles and creases in the leather are similar to the palms of hands. I'll put more pics in my stories....Some more mending for my pile. These mittens have a very long history ..... I remember wearing them at school, they eventually got too small and became my mum's. She still wears them and was telling me today how they had a hole and she was going to have to get rid of them 😱 (so much i could say about that but not enough space here!) So obviously I said I'd fix them. Not sure exactly how yet but I'll find a way 🪡Finally managed to get into my workshop and spend a few hours doing a bit of printing.....Thought I'd share another of my #wellwornwellloved garments for my #thepeopleswardrobe project. If you want to contribute a garment, post a pic of the garment (with you wearing it ideally 😁), describe a bit of its story and sum it up with 3 words. (More details on my blog.)
