While edgar continued to do this almost all weekend
beautifully photographed by deborah by the way, I fought off the urge to join him on the couch and instead I set up a sewing table in the studio. Then I gave my much neglected sewing machine a whirl and sewed up a pattern test for a pocketed tunic top. I used a beautiful, soft as silk, worn and lovingly mended by some kind soul vintage sheet. I saved my favorite mended areas to highlight them in the pockets. It is so comfy and with only a few minor adjustments I will be off and running sewing up the next one as soon as I have decided which of the lovely fabrics to make it with.
That huge white t shirt rag ball made a great substitute for my rather aching head today. I am planning on dying it with natural dyes next weekend and then making a rug.
I would love to kiss the hands that mended that sheet with so much love and care.
I also worked on some little things at my desk, read a little and daydreamed.
With a little help from me fern has decided to entertain your questions about him or his relatives. All you need to do is leave a question in the comments below and fern will answer to the best of his ability and as quickly as he can. The answers will appear in the comments section.
Even though it has been seriously cold outside the studio has been a very warm place to be working on my days off. I am almost caught up on all the deadlines, only a few things to pack up and mail away this weekend. I have already shared some of these pictures on flickr but I realize not all my blog readers frequent that spot. I hope you enjoy some warm, colorful, sunlight filled pictures of my studio taken last weekend. Some of the kitties in the house are also finding it a very pleasant place to hang out.
I gathered some plant materials on a long cold walk on saturday because I wanted to take some macro shots indoors without the wind and snow. The images really lend themselves to all sort of imaginings.
But please take your time because rainbow snail will take a little while to get there. I had so much to do today, deadlines looming over my head but then I noticed a sweet little someone decided to wake up on this very cold sunday in january. I haven't seen him since before christmas, so I had to spend a little time with him in the sunshine of the kitchen and introduce him to my new camera lens.
I love that last photograph of his rainbow shadow.
A lovely snail break and back to work on my computer I go.
