Posts Tagged ‘handmade’

I’ve been sewing up a storm behind the scenes. Many were presents so had to wait till they were given to their owners before any images could be seen online. A few are still being worked on for presents and December holidays, those will remain behind the scenes. Here are a few photos.

Listening to the water dripping off a newly acquired freshly hand-washed sequined covered sweater from the good will I reflect upon the multitude of projects that was May. AND IT AIN’T OVER YET!

Tomorrow I start a “project” I paused a few eons back so as to retain my sanity. The only time in my life that I had gone over my limit, so I yielded a bit and smartly so. The universe dumped the opportunity back into my lap and I jumped at it. I am officially on my way to continuing my patternmaking education. More on that in the near future….

Now reflection. May has been jammed packed and isn’t holding back. SEWING: So I made two hand sewing samplers (examples of my work) and one button sampler, a zippered pouch, and altered two  jackets (sleeves). AND made a pair of ruffled panties all by hand, no sewing machine used. Below are some photos.

More reflecting. ATCs or Artist Trading Cards were a new topic I tried out. I was asked to co-teach an overnight art class. Yes it began at 11:15pm and I think we finally kicked the last person out at 1:30am! I got home at 3:00am and got back up at 7:30am! But I digress… For excellent work was made and fun was had! Here are some samples I made and two class shots. Look at them, they are way into it.

Here are some pics of the book.
