about indigorchid

Things I like: Typography, bookbinding, letterpresses (though I haven’t tried that yet. It looks fantastic). Summer salads, my sewing machine, fountain pens, pretty lettershapes, old manuscripts. Textiles. Making textiles. Unicorn horns, or spermwhale horns actually. Medieval leather shoes. I want to make me some. Plants, if I can keep them alive. I make underwear. And pretty dresses. I like wheel throwing, and black specled glazes for pottery. I like the smell of freshly cut grass. I love reaching the bottom of jars and using up all there is. I believe in repurposing and reusing and mindful spending. I want to make soap and shampoos. I’m a devil at leftover cooking. I like organizing and lists where I can check off boxes and cross out things. Anything accomplished is lovely. Paper and glue. Wool and yarn and spinning.
