i suppose it is not so hard to guess where it Comes from...
yes, brewing my coffee... (>t/tuesday)
what else was brewing this past week?
the snowcat got some dyed cheese Cloth patches added for texture (to the Body; and as clouds, because i had to cover an unwanted pattern there).
though it is time consuming sewing this delicate stuff on, i love doing it.
and of course i added some snowflakes.
and it is carnival!
not that this touches me much, but looking for winter-themed stuff for my blanket i thought this would be fine:
stamped this old motif from stampers anonymous with black ink (from my favorite things) and heat set it for being waterproof (yes, i tried it and it is ok)
started embroidery with 2 strands of floss.
the faces and arms were too delicate to stitch, so i colored them with inktense pens.
then i thought this might be a good patch to sew onto a pocket i had cut out from an old Overall (jumpsuit) of the 80ies;)
and here it is,
meanwhile framed with squares to become part of the winter blanket (or winter section of a four seasons blanket... still pondering...)
now and then still pre-washing fabrics i bought years ago...
here a basket of red tones...
and... every year i´m waiting for the book sale of TASCHEN at the end of january.
very tempting to get books for half the Price...
the three volumes of the national geographic weigh 7 Kilo (each one!).
