Tussah Fish Salvia are dead...

...long live Tussah Fish Caribe / Ecru

I had my doubts about messing around once more with my Didymos Tussah Silk Fish, but since I had found some promising food colour and it was a project I could do with the kids, I just plunged into it - almost literally...

Still wet...

Dried fish...

They are quite flashy, especially after the elegant, sophisticated, mild Salvia look, but I quite like them, definitely very summery :)

Birthday outfit for my youngest

Birthday preparations and holiday preparations are quite tough together... Since we mostly stayed with friends or members of , holiday preparations included quite a lot of sewing, too: we try to bring some small gifts to our hosts - will show a picture one day.

Anyway, once we were back, I still had two days to go till my sweet little daughter would turn one! I had to sew a dress for Florina (see post below), embroider and sew the number for the birthday crown and make a dress for my cute birthday girl (ah yeah, and a cake, too!)

Here it is:

and here with the birthday crown

The mouse etc. has been embroidered free hand
