A must=organizing my space...my creative abode. Ahh... I'm really starting to feel alive and very grounded in my little sun-lit studio space. The darker paint color I finally finished (well almost finished) has had a calming effect, exactly what I was hoping for. And while I'm sharing all this, I owe thanks to Michelle for inspiring me to get off my butt and do this... It's so refreshing to not hunt all over for that something when you're trying to create. Especially when you're a night-owl designer like me! (cause Arlin Jack gets all of my daylight time) Above, a snapshot of my new applique "station", Oh and my new iron, rolls like butter and has an auto shut off feature so I won't get scolded anymore...:-) Baby onesie orders are processing through our web store at a steady enough pace that I'm wiser to make batches of applique designs instead of one at a time.
Over the last week I managed to crunch out 18 hand sewn onesies, a batch of glass magnets to re stock Polkadot...I can breathe again and look forward to meeting my hubby in Vegas for a little R&R, sun lounging and yeah...dancing!
planning on getting my little German scissors (handed down from my granny) sharpened when I get back next week...
I bought the next bigger spool rack... I'm addicted to buying thread, in fact, I'm becoming a total thread snob. (thanks Mom) Gutermann is where it's at.
drafting a new design...reminds me of my hometown and Del Mar where literally you could see hot air balloons for miles...
the beginning... I see lots of fun stitching and possibly some embroidery detailing for the basket/carriage ropes.
I ordered in chinese last night from my favorite place, my fortune cookie read...."When more become too much. It's the same as being not enough." So true.
