finally I have succumbed and had some varifocal glasses made and bout a pair of clip on sunshades for them. The scope for upgrade is big, so I started with the sunshades, using Japanese origami paper on top of laminated watercolor paper.
I also added some braces on the sides since the original middle clip kept coming off too easily.
Next step is to improve the glasses themselves…
so finally renovated the bathroom (see amazing tiles), used demolished Bathtub as new goldfish pond (pictures will come later when the plants look presentable), meantime discovered linen as best to wear in the heat bought a dress at L**l in plain white so dug out my 50 year old Lino cut set and combined all. The white still bothers me a bit but I think it is better now.
picked up an oversized lady’s visor from a Chinese shop in Leonidion. As it was baby pink it needed some of my colour touch and alterations to the back. Textile colours, earring based on Rosemary’s underwater painting and my new red linen dress brought back from China.
perfect use now for the red hairpin to hold it in place by custom buttonholes.
my idea of a successful interior design. Beijing opera guild hall.
red laquer stall at the market.
it’s getting harder to find roosters, seems they are almost sold out as the new year’s celebration draw to the end.
