I had every intention of adding a post yesterday, er two days ago – my day off from the shop. I shouldn’t complain but a day isn’t enough to fit in all the things I want to do to catch up on my art. I started out at 7am, which in the days since we’ve moved has become my normal wake-up time – even earlier. I’m enticed by my new creative space and just loving being awake and aware to my whole house, after a long wait to get here. I don’t even get coffee first, which was my usual habit. The sunlight in the sewing studio calls me brightly to attention. It is east-facing, very zen, I suppose, and full of all things I love: books, art supplies, fabric, my computer.
I had this idea to start a Pinterest board called “On the Design Wall” now that I have one. I installed it this week – nine feet tall by ten feet wide. So here goes….
Pretend that’s me in the corner without my head. The wall is huge.
Here’s a closeup of the pillow in the picture. All hand dyed with some hand stitching and a piece of vintage navy lace that finally found a home after years of stashing it.
I purchased these colorful 9″ zippers to make myself lots of skirts this spring and summer.
I finished another Daiwabo Taupe pillow sham to sell in my Etsy shop. Last if the scraps.
But I digress….Here is the design wall in use. Hoping for endless ideas in cloth.
