April to August??

8:43 AM Posted In , , , Edit This 0 Comments »
It has been hot and stormy here for the past few days.  It feels like we have gone straight from early April to mid August.  The leaves are about 3 weeks ahead of schedule and if it ever dries out, Bry will have to mow the lawn.  I'll post outdoor photos here or at the Beorningstead when I get a chance to take some.  Right now I have a little niece and nephew keeping me busy today. 

In the meantime - here's a photo of my daughter's new color.    The purple goes well with that orange Zombie Prom shirt, no?

And here are some photos of my needle case in progress.  My photography table is still buried in junk (see messy studio photos below) so I took these under halogen lights.  NOT a good idea for getting accurate colors.  I adjusted the color temperature as best I could but it's still not quite true. 

I've got a lot of trapunto and embedded objects going on in the midst of all those french knots and seed stitch.  I'm really enjoying the process and am eager to experiment with it some more.

Tomorrow my goal is to get my studio cleaned up a bit so I can get photos of some beadwork I've been working on - some really gorgeous and sparkley Right Angle Weave bracelets, a sample bracelet for my upcoming Herrignbone weave bracelet class and a few bead strung necklaces.  I also want to do some silk screening and I need to work on some cotton voile scarves for summer - a new line I'm trying.

So wish me luck- this is what I'm contending with right now.  But we've built some new storage and re-thought our se of the pantry space behind my studio so mavbe I'll be able to organize better so I can work smarter in the future.  Or maybe I'm just always going to be a slob!
