sorry. life got very far away from me. today though, i’m home sick, so i thought i’d give a hello!
there are certainly things to catch up on, and i’m going to start with what’s come of last january. my neighbor came up with the idea for a new years resolution of making at least one garment a month. i’ve had a good time with that! with just one more month left, i’m pretty pleased with what i’ve created. [though i did get a new computer, and seem to be missing photos of some of the shirts that i made. odd.]
hats!!! i’m on a serious hat making kick. i’m working on matching hats for a bunch of my favorite peoples… i’m working on the mister’s right now since he keeps trying to steal this here “funfetti” hat. i’ve been using madeline tosh yarn. it’s a dream. i have a sweater that i started LAST october, but i’ve stopped working on it. the friend who was helping me has fallen away a bit, and i’ve let that be my excuse for working on other projects…
you will notice that i have a lot of nani iro fabric. i could swim in it!
i know. i look like a killer for hire in this photo, but the shirt is nice!
ah merchant and mills.
i’m obsessed with this cotton and steel print. it looks like ritz crackers. i used this fabric as the base for a set of cloths that i made for my favorite chileans. the mister wrangled research money, and got to stay with our best friends in santiago. yes. yes i was/am jealous.
these are from a pattern that i made up based on a shirt that i already have.
for a ten year old.
ties for the gentlemen.
some of the recipients in all their splendor.
my first time making pleats. their not amazing, but they will only get better from here. i hope.
aaaand. while this is not so much a garment, i did make my first weaving! a little less than stellar, but i’m okay with that as a first attempt.
