Denim Skirt and artsy plant photos

I spent almost all day doing nothing but sewing. Ive been a bit under the weather, but still managed to whip up a skirt from old jeans, and a bit of kickass fabric that glows in the dark.

The skulls on the skirt are similar to the butterflies on the bushfire quilt block I did (both from fabricland)

And this is my Kalanchoe plant in my greenhouse. I rescued it from a life of abuse from living at a grocery store. I hate that they dont take care of the plants very well. I try to pick out the healthiest one before it starts keeling over like all the other ones on the shelf.

At least spring is well on its way. You know its spring when you can smell Skunk on the way home from the grocery store....they've come out of hibernation, the birdies are all chirping, and theres almost no snow left. I hope it stays this way rather than dipping down below 2 degrees celcius

Love the skirt! Great job! I like it so much this might be a future project for me. I'm seeing tribal-inspired skirt for daughter using her old jeans. :)

Thanks for the inspiration! Your blog is wonderful!
