New Skirt

Awhile ago, when Daniel and I went to Albuquerque, we got to hang out with our friend Polli. We went out for dinner and soaked in the hottub of our hotel, it was alot of fun! Polli gave me this great yarn that she had picked up for me!! It's silk! She said she wanted me to make something sexy out of it!

So I started a new summer skirt. I'm not using a pattern...just making matching curved strips that I'll seam together and see what happens!! LOL, wish me luck! I started this April 4th.

I decided to alternate strips....with another silk blend yarn I happened to have in my stash. The colors are very earthy and I love the drape that silk has!

Footnote: About Che and my previous blog post. Thank You Carmen for your great comment. I have spent the last few days learning alot about Cuba and Castro and Che and the embargo and a bunch of history that I was woefully ignorant about!! There is so much information to take in. I didn't know who Che was before I saw Twilight's purse, but of course I had seen the image before. It's extremely hard to tell who might have been heros and who were monsters. Nothing seems clear cut. But thanks to Carmen's comment, I've set out to keep learning!

Can't wait to see that skirt!
When it comes to cuban history, as in most history of any country, there are monsters on both sides and the only heros are the poor people caught in the middle of the power struggle.

The skirt is looking great!

And don't feel bad about not knowing Cuba's history. The important thing is you have the drive to educate yourself. Not everyone does.
