Spring is Sprung!
Or I should say Mud Season has arrived in the Adirondacks. There's not a bit of snow left on the ground and the Deer River iu our back yard is doing its annual rage.
So as Spring springs, I am dawdling between projects, neither one turning on my sewing OCD. But I will forge through, just like these daffodils, and know it will all happen in the end. Happy Spring!....Bunny
It is so sunny today that I got out my first load of laundry on the line since last year. I have spent two trips and two days trying to pull together the prints for Carly's dress. I need three. In a perfect world I would have a large floral, a small dot and a stripe. Because my inspiration fabric was the mint/raspberry piece in the middle it was difficult to find coordinates. I am hoping these work.
I am also having second thoughts about the knot dress. The little ruffly number pillowcase type dress I made Sophie last year is really cute too so that may be it. I will spend this afternoon going through my girly patterns and see what hits me. Its way too muddy to work in the yard and I will get a long walk in after so no guilt about going into the cave on such a glorious day.
I spent time this morning felting and foiling. I am still waiting for something to gel. The purple boucle I purchased a couple of weeks ago felts beautifully. Do I dare? Not sure. I have figured out a couple of ways to foil, one keeping the foil shinier and the other making it more part of the textile.
On the left you can see a bow out of felted pink wool. Playing with that idea too. I love it on the orange wool I got recently and felted as well.
