We've gone a bit "green" in our back field also. It is over 2 acres and has sat dormant, except for the rampant weeds for over 20 years. This year we leased out 3/4 of it to a local farmer to plant soybeans. The 1/4 closest to the house contains our septic system leach lines. Although this would make fine fertilizer I did not want the tilling and plowing to disrupt all of last Spring's expensive and time-consuming work to re-route the septic system.
My other green projects have been hand-sewn dresses for the "Jane Austen" doll I showed in a previous post. She is really a Madame Alexander doll called "Articulated Alex" but she makes a wonderful Jane. Here she is sporting a somewhat more modern outfit, an 1900 Visiting Costume. This I will also call a prototype since it is riddle with mistakes in sizing. I bought 4 wonderful patterns off of eBay for my Alex and Tyler 16" dolls, but they always need a bit of tweaking before they fit right. There is a big gap in the closing of the skirt back and the sleeves of the black underblouse are too tight. I simply chopped them off to fit under the jacket. But since the jacket sleeves are too long it's not noticeable.
So 4 measly posts for the month of June. I thought I would do better then that. I still have the weekend to catch up a bit. There is a wonderful arts and crafts festival in town on Saturday so I may have some nice photos from that to post. I am still reading all of your blogs and trying to catch up with my comment-making.
