Just peeking in for a quick hello. You are a such a lovely distraction with my late-morning cup of tea, but I'm determined to stay focused today. I'm hoping to put a few new items in my shop on Monday morning, so for a couple of hours my sewing machine and new Pandora station (Ray Lamontagne) are my companions, as I dive into making. The custom flower girl buckets above are an example of some of the only burlap sewing I did this summer. I'm making a couple of similar ones for next week for forest foraging. It's fun to to get reacquainted with burlap, the perfect fall fabric. I'm adding sturdy linen, wool, and corduroy to this season's material list. There's a stack of deconstructed clothing and wool blankets in gorgeous hues of autumn that are desperately wanting to be repurposed into new and useful designs. I'll share more glimpses later this week.
Is the shift in seasons inspiring you with new palettes and textures, too?
