Actually, I’ve got a long way to go on this particular ArtDress, but I couldn’t resist sharing an “in-progress” photo of it!

What I’m doing is taking A LOT (a garbage bag full) of seeds and fluff from milkweed plants, and I’m sewing it between clear plastic to make a quilted material for this dress. I’m so anxious to get it finished, but should probably go get some cheap face-mask air filters from the hardware store—it’s quite messy, and using a handkerchief over my nose to keep me from breathing in all the fluff just isn’t working well enough.

(In other random news, I’ve discovered that fried potatoes with lovage, garlic and shrimp is goooood. It’s a strange combination, but I think it works together in a wonderful way. Give it a try if you’re feeling adventurous.)
