Slow Weekend

Yep, it’s been two days of doing almost nothing. Almost. 🙂 And it felt good.

Reading books and playing computer games.

Meda doesn’t read books but he sure knows how to take a nap in the afternoon. 🙂

I did nothing in the studio for the whole weekend, except just looking around, planing my next move. I have some ideas…

This and that on my messy cork board:

A gorgeous bird my friend Mary from England made. Mary is such a great friend and has a special place in my heart. I love this bird and it’s now in the center of my work space.

We ate cookies.  🙂

A friend brought me some lovely laces and needle work! What a great present! I will use them for my journals.

Last week was all about making slippers. I wanted to recycle some old T shirts and clothes that were just laying around, in hope that it would make my studio look more tidy, (but of course it all ended up looking like a bomb site, again), so I thought “why not making slippers for the first time in my life!”. The good thing is that I made something I’ve never made before, which means I’ve learned something new, which also means I now know that it’s not that easy to make a good slipper with a straight seam. lol!

But I had to try. And as imperfect as they are, these slippers are cozy and fun. A pair for me, a pair for hubby, one for mommy, one for daddy, one for aunty… If you make too many, give them to people! 🙂

As well as a pot holder or two.

Have a great day/night everyone!
