Sometimes you want to be creative but it just doesn't work.
Its been a struggle these last two weeks .
Sitting at my sewing machine and trying to produce good stuff with the ironing and tidying demons on either shoulder is tricky. I've resisted them as far as I can but its still extremely distracting.
After all, our house has absorbed this:
and a lot more, albeit temporarily.
While it was busy absorbing, my in laws arrived unexpectedly.
They are lovely people but have the tidiest cleanest house and garden in the Northwest.
Oh well. Good job we are not all the same.
I made some felt at the felt group last week and it looks like meat.
I wanted a palette change but essence of steak was what I came up with.
Its not too bad in small doses with a spoonful of sugar to help it down.
But does this work have the same 'retro' feel to it?
Or do these things look like hair ornaments from 'Strictly Come Dancing'?
Or decorative blobs from a tawdry theatrical painter?
I like the above one best but it makes me think 40's night club!
Is it just me?
I even had a difficult job getting some of the 'usual' done, but here's one just listed on ETSY.
Now for some news: I received some more purse frames from Hongkong so am now tooled up for purse production. I hope it goes well. Watch this space.
second bit of news: I am in the video of Art and Garden on youtube but if you want to see me you'll have to root it out for yourself. If you find it you deserve the gratification of seeing me as I am.
Like my Grandma.
“O wad some Pow’r the giftie gie us. To see oursels as others see us!”
Well that 'pow'r' is Youtube.
