In progress

Aren't these cute? I'll attach these pockets to my skirt... as soon as I find it. I've been wearing the skirt - love it! - so it is somewhere between the closet and the laundry room.
I've never made external pockets like this, so I'm making it up as I go along. I'm a little concerned about the pockets being too heavy for the unlined skirt fabric... so I'll probably add extra fabric inside the skirt... which means there will be a secret pocket inside.

Accidental beauty

Is it just me, or is this just gorgeous? I've been rather unimpressed with regular potatoes that have grow eyes, but this sweet potato has so much character.

I wonder if I can cut it up and put it in the ground like a regular potato.
