I want to say "Oh yes, I am fine!" but truth is -
I've got a bad case of the winter blahs...I'm ready to be playing around outside, aren't you?
I did go on a short bike ride (about 18 miles) with my husband this week.
I also went sledding with him and a few friends (and family members) in the great snow that we had.
And wasn't it wonderful to see 8-10 inches of snow in upstate SC??
I loved it!
I've been reading a lot (mostly in my Kindle).
Moving supplies around on my studio table.
Looking at patterns (apparel!).
I am going to
I haven't sewn apparel in years (with the exception of fingerless gloves and scarves) and am itching to get started. I thought that I would start with a simple knit tee shirt.
What I would LOVE to have is a sewing group to bounce questions off of...
Maybe I'll search for one or create my own.
Email me (or comment below) if you're interested in being a part of a group like that.
It would be so much fun to sew the same thing together!
I must say that just jumped out of my fingers onto the "page". I never intended to broach that but now that it's out there- it sounds good.
I have done a little tiny bit of art work...teeny tiny bit for sure.
I've created a sample book for a project that I am
|You can also see the turtle shell full of buttons|
that I made from shed deer antlers.
Oh, and the sample (duct tape) book.
Yep, that same project that I have written about before.
I have completed reinforcing the spine of the signatures and punched the stitching holes.
I figured out the closure and I LOVE it! I can't wait to see if it is going to work the way I hope it does.
I've got the cover completed and just need to tweak one little thing before I attach it (after the signatures are in).
Tonight (or tomorrow) I am going to stitch the signatures in.
I am, I promise!
Here's a sampling of the pages just waiting to go in.
Here's a peek or two of the rusty threads, fiber, and cloth on the cover.
The cloth that is not rusted is naturally dyed.
I've allowed Nature to have her say on this one.
There you have it - a quick synopsis of the past few weeks.
Without all of the hot tea, coffee and chocolate of course...
