This is what’s going on over here!
FINALLY! Time to sew in my own studio space on a project of my own choosing with all of my fabric and tools at hand.
Can you see the VARIETY in these grey strings? I am loving them SO much!
I love the little pops of color that are appearing here and there. I am avoiding sewing just tone-on-tone to tone-on-tone or solids. I want TEXTURE. I want lots of different things of interest going on.
I don’t want toe strips blending into each other, I want every string to be able to stand up on its own and say “Here I am! Look at me!”
This project is making me smile!
Last night’s batch of progress.
I finished up Longmire on Netflix and wanted something lighter. Do you remember the show Scrubs? It aired from 2001 to 2010 and I never really watched it then. I’m not much of a sit-com girl, and shows with canned laughter drive me a bit insane. If the part is funny, I will laugh on my own without the addition of laugh-tracks. Well, this is FUNNY! And I’m enjoying it. And because there are 9 seasons I an binge a bit if I want.
I am so loving your fabrics, each and every one!
How can I thank you all??
Goodness, these are fun!
Last night was a rough one. We had a storm roll through at about 4am. I only knew about it because Sadie left Jeff’s room to come to mine, jumped on ME when jumping up onto the bed and I couldn’t settle her down. She was shaking SO hard the whole bed was vibrating.
Even the Thunder Shirt doesn’t help her much and I’m wondering what to do about her. We’ve tried herbal doggie treats that are supposed to have a calming effect. We’ve tried distraction, loads of love, wrapping her in quilts, hugging, talking, soothing…and she shakes SO hard long after the storm is gone and things are quiet, she can’t seem to calm down.
This has intensified as she has gotten older.
Any ideas on what we can try?
