Well have I ever been busy this week-- not in the sewing way, but in the 'ahhh, I'm all out of very important things' ways, meaning visits to the op shop, the craft shop and Etsy. Eeeek. And I've also been watching TV a little bit with the Liberal Party tearing itself apart, I just couldn't resist-- but a statement like that does not belong in a post about creativity!
This is what I have been doing:
Stuffing and finishing my little dollies-- I love these ones, I love overalls-- they are all from the Sasha pattern in the Dew Drop Girls Pattern which I just put in my shop, the one with grey overalls is Sasha-- she is exactly from the pattern. It's so weird to have an actual pattern to work from because other than the body outline, the head shape and the legs I just made it all up as I went along... making the pattern meant honing in on all those little shapes and deciding which ones I like best. I think I want to make some with jeans next!
I've also been screen printing onto paper as planned a very very long time ago:
And I'm finding that the different textures of the papers is just as exciting as the differences between fabrics...
But for now, I'm running very low on blinkies and tags! Feel free to help me by providing a name, 3 likes and 3 dislikes... I love these things, but it can get rather tedious at times-- I've managed to find myself a name book, if only there were a book of likes and dislikes!
Check over at Kirsty's for more spaces, although I think I may a little early right at the minute!
