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’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.
