Unreformed, Unapologetic Hippies


Yep. We dye and wear tie dyes.  PROUDLY!

A length of plain calico (quilter's muslin) now forever hippy-fied

This is probably going to be the new doorway curtain between the lounge and bedroom.

Grooovy, maaaan

Due to excess fabric stash and “not enough bread” we will be making clothes from this book soon.  (Well, the whole sewing room clean up thing has to happen first, and I don’t have the energy for that yet, but we have PLANS.)

And we have mung bean seeds just waiting to be sprouted.  Mmmmmm, mung bean sprouts!  I love them! Not least because they bring back memories of my childhood, when mung beans sprouted in a jar in a cupboard under the sink.  We don’t have a cupboard under the sink so I’ll probably keep them in a dark space in the bathroom.

    Catching up on old posts here … Love the room divider. If it’s good enough for the Grateful Dead, it’s good enough for me.

    Shall we play one of my favorite games? I like to look at book covers and guess their publication date. I’m going to guess that your “Illustrated Hassle – Free …” book was published in the early 70’s. I typically associate the mode of dress and hair, specifically the pornstache, with the late 1960s and generally am wrong, so let’s go with early 70’s, maybe 1972. Whaddaya say? What’s your guess? Do either of us win a prize?

      Yep, Mr Beloved was wearing one of his tie dyes to the friendly chemist shop recently and the chemist looked at him and said \”BRILLIANT! I\’ll go to the fancy dress 70\’s party as a deadhead!!\”

      DINGDINGDING!! You were pretty much spot on with your guess on the book\’s publication date – 1971 is the copyright date, and my copy says it was first published in Great Britain in 1973. Well done!! You win a prize! How about I DON\’T inflict any of the book\’s text on you, will that do? (LOL!) It\’s seriously groovy…
