Where did Winter go?
I cannot believe it's April!!!
It's been very busy here with kitchen remodeling, workshops & kids.
I do find time to play around in my studio, lately its been to organize & clean.
Having friends over for classes' has been good motivation to keep things tidy!
One thing that really needed organizing was my seam binding.
I've tried everything from boxes to hanging them over my desk, but they always end up a jumbled mess.
Keeping things vertical is always a good way to save space so I decided to build up.
I dug through a box of lamp parts to find a base & rod that worked together.
Unfortunately the hole in the seam binding roll was too small.
That was an easy fix with a little drilling.
I didn't like the look of the Hug Snug label so I enlarged & copied a clock face to glue onto the top roll.
I thought about topping it with a pretty doorknob or something but in the end this finial worked best.
Now I just unscrew it to add more rolls.
I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.
I've been playing in the wool pile too:)
I love making patchwork from the white scraps.
I made another camp blanket too.
I swear my sewing machine is going to blow up one day.
I put some spring inspired bundles in my etsy shop.
But this week I'm getting ready for my second home workshop.
We'll be weaving fabric, lace & other scraps into a beatuiful bag to hold precious memories.
The cool thing about this technique is it can be altered & used for many different projects, like this collage.
I taught the class at Karla's Birdsong event a couple of years ago & it was a hit.
Beth shared these photo's of bags she created after the class.
I have space left, so if your not busy Saturday check out my etsy shop for details!
