First of all, this pic to the left has been amusing me lately. This is me, at just about the exact same age Sofie is now, meticulously organizing my own committee on a pile of blocks, just exactly like she does now.
We may not look alike, but we seem to share some personality traits.
Here's a recent pic of Sofie for comparison, although you may have already seen these on the blog - the second one in particular shares the same design aesthetic, don't you think?
Also - although I probably will eventually split the blog, I have to admit that I just don't have the bandwidth to manage two blogs right now, so I'll temporarily continue posting some of my sewing/crafting pics here. And today I just want to share a couple of pics of the paltry few new things I've managed to create for the store since this whole crisis with Mom started - almost two weeks ago now.
So just because they're pretty, here are a few recent things I made:
Oilily reprint fabric from Holland - isn't this gorgeous? One thing I've discovered from having the store is how much I'm drawn to bright colors when left to my own devices. I gravitate to super-drenched, color-rich fabrics every time when I'm not specifically trying to pick out certain colors for a quilt.
Fun learning these things about yourself.
This is from a while ago, but did I ever share my Cake-o-Saurus? This was a custom order for someone Brett works with - he wanted a dinosaur holding a cupcake, and although I wasn't sure how to do it at first I really loved how this turned out. It sold a while ago, so this is sheerly show and tell.
And the coffee sleeves are selling well - in fact I need to make a bunch more. Here's one of my more favorite ones recently - robots.
Boy have I been neglecting the old shop lately. Pretty soon I'm going to have to get back into it a lot more fully if I want to keep it going.
That's it for today! I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my recent works...
