Everything in it’s rightful place.
Threads in a KIND of order.
What joy…to breeze between threads, scissors and tape measures without sending out search parties or stumbling over fabric mountains. The aim now is to keep it this way; everything returned to it’s proper venue after use, all tools home after every assignment.
This is actually ordered. You should have seen it yesterday!
How long can it last I ask myself?…probably about as long as my fingernails (eaten)!
So today was actually quite productive. Ruben cycled heroically through the rain at the break of dawn toward the Oban ferry and work experience at the vets. Tom cycled to Carnie cottage where all cousins and sisters (mine) have descended for October break/chaos. So I was able to work unhindered and unfettered by distraction.
First assignment…a window panel kind of thing for a customer who wants to dress the window but no point in a blind because it would always be up. So we have devised a shallow felt panel with a slot at the back for the pole. Interesting!
I think it worked out well, hope she likes it.
Then on to etsy orders, one of which was Lobelia Campbell. I thought I would document her birthing process for you as I find it very entertaining and maybe you will too.
I can see the head but I think the shoulders are stuck
It's a ...Ooooo what is it??
It's a rabbit thing. Is it alive? Quick, resusitate!
It's Lobelia the Highland Hare
OK…maybe I should get out more.
Then I made a little sparrow on a branch brooch and a Cluck and Pecker cushion for Etsy buyers.
Machine embroidering swallow.
Hens pinned and legless.
and began the next big job of cushions, lamps, tea cosies and other things for a soon to be online shop called eco motives. I am designing a totaly new range for this shop so as not to step on the toes of my other eco client. Berries have been requested in the design so this afternoon was about finding a Mogwaiiish way to do berries. Still working at it and havn’t quite clinched it, but I have a cunning plan. All will/may be revealed tomorrow.
Photos were taken of berries
A bit of sketching ideas
and more importantly, trying out different ideas on fabric
