This week we are contemplating HOW to appreciate the poo after it hits the fan, so to speak.
It’s ZERO WASTE WEEK, celebrating the process of using every scrap of fabric to make my skirts. And EVERY SCRAP OF EXPERIENCE to make our lives.
I’m in the post production stage of making skirts, which is kind of the main one.
