.....and boy that last post was FUN!!! (which we all need now and then~~too little in this world)
I have been busily working on these:
....which I *finally* completely yesterday. (and for some reason Blogger is squishing the width dimension of this photo....Lord save me from this beast! ACK!)
The look of the finished pieces is not telling of the amount of work involved; it was hit and miss the whole way trying to get them done, done right, and looking GOOD. I spent the evening doing a sloper for stole padding, which I have just eyeballed before, but not this time. I need the cardboard to get the pieces cut right as the construction is different and I have one shot at getting it all right.
THE FIRST TIME.
There is the normal hesitation/excitement factor, and I have learned to work with that long ago. I am seeing the construction come together in my head which means it is time to go to the fabric.
That also means I tend to get blog scarce unless I am super quick or decide to share photos along the way.
Either way, you know where I am...in the studio....doing my sewing thing!
I'll pop back in with more when I can.
Working through Julia Cameron's "The Artist's Way" for a recharge of creative juices too, so my time, as always, seems to be used up before feet hit the floor. (for anyone who has NOT worked this book---and it is not just reading but active effort---I highly recommend it to relight lost creative flames, or fan the fire to a blaze...)
Here's to a good weekend, and of course,
