dear Viola von Hohenzollern
in case you were watching from your island yesterday
and wondering what on earth was going on
let me explain.
a group of fabulous women spent five days working together in a beautiful garden, being fed simply wonderful food, sewing zero-waste nightgowns [some of which are seeing daylight instead] and celebration dresses, making string and writing poetic words about how a dress should make you feel
on the last day, they came to Cable Bay
to unbundle their handsewn, bio-regionally dyed dresses
and to celebrate the joy of being together
- you may have heard a lot of laughter
and a bit of splashing.
the pictures below will explain all.
i am the lucky soul who was tending the cauldrons.
if you ever feel inclined to have an artist reside on your island for a while, to make you something beautiful using the plants and the wool that grow there, do let me know. i'd be delighted.
