I’m a grown man and I’ve been throwing my dirty laundry on the floor in my closet. Shame. I had visions of making a magnificent hamper contraption with pulleys, levers and such but in the end decided to use what I had in my apartment to sew a laundry bag. That, turns out, was the true genius.

I hosted mom and aunt for our first official session of the Mennonite Embroidery Club. Silliness, comedy, tomfoolery and shenanigans ensued.

It’s been raining a lot, so I want to make myself a rain coat. I did my research and discovered a technique known as waxed cotton, waxed canvas or tin cloth. It’s a process of permeating cotton fabric with a combination of waxes and oils to make it water resistant.

I bought myself all the necessary materials and got to work experimenting with different techniques. These are the results.

This photo is inspired by that famous painting of the farmer couple standing in front of a house and the man holding the pitchfork.

In this week’s video, Mennonite Corn travelled to his home town to help momma in the garden.

Spring is here — although it doesn’t feel like it — and it’s time to get plants and seeds in the ground if there’s to be an autumn harvest, so Mennonite Cornelius got to work both planting some greens in his apartment but also made the pilgrimage to his hometown to help get mom’s garden sown.

About a month ago, I put up the decorative lights in my studio. I have also been getting more plants in the studio. The art is from a friend. Combine the 3 and mmmm, the asymmetrical balance feels nice.

I’m starting to think Menno Corn isn’t really a Mennonite because he’s just spending money with no regard! Yes, it’s a beautiful Monstera, but $30 on a plant?! Handyman Corn also put up those lights in this week’s video, so here’s a glamour shot of said lights with some of Menno Corn’s plants.

I have 2 out of the 3 lights necessary for a proper basic studio lighting set-up. Lighting the backdrop is my third missing link. A trip to Home Depot later and I got to making.

Like a true Mennonite, he felt the need for more, to keep building his collection and with spring in the air, he wanted to add some colour and vibrance, hence this Mammy Croton on the left and Polka Dot plant on the right.
